Two years after the critically acclaimed "La Stanza di Swedenborg: Vanessa Van Basten returns with two brand new epic tracks collected on this beautiful EP, which was written by all band members.

This Italian heavy post-rock ensemble don't constrict themselves to the laws of The Great Postrock Bible. In stead they blend in psychedelica, ambient influences, metal and shoegaze to result in a unique musical experience.
Dreamlike and cinematographic sounds collide with heavy and dark sonic assaults: the music is incredibly crafted and reveals more of its intrinsic beauty every time it is played.

Vanessa Van Basten has kept their lo-fi attitude as the tracks were recorded in the rehearsal room and at home with the aid of a technician and feature a human drummer (no more drum computer this time) that has toured with the band in the past.

The EP comes in an oversized folded cover with a sixteen page booklet inserted and is strictly limited to 500 copies.

Moving Mountains is a New York-based indie rock band. Combining emotional vocals with elements of post-rock, the band has often been compared to such acts as The Appleseed Cast and Thrice.

The band was formed in Westchester, New York in 2005 by Gregory Dunn (guitar/vocals) and Nicholas Pizzolato (drums). A self-titled demo EP was leaked to the public in early 2006 and their debut album "Pneuma" was released independently in early 2007. Later that year, Frank Graniero (guitar/vocals) and Mitchell Lee (bass) completed the band’s line-up. In 2008, "Pneuma" was reissued by Deep Elm.

After much delay, a new Moving Mountains EP entitled "Foreword" is planned for release in Fall 2008.

Beware Of Safety is an instrumental rock quartet from Los Angeles, California. The group released its new album, “Dogs” in November 2008.

Those who enjoy their instrumental rock to emphasize the "rock" should take note of Beware of Safety. This quartet out of Los Angeles concocts an explosive creation that leaves no prisoners. And while the music is loud, noisey, and aggressive, the band really shines in the post-trauma aftermath, showcasing a more sophisticated side that really speaks towards the band's natural talent and understanding of its art.
