EP: Sleevenotes - We Are Mostly Made Of Nothing

Band: Sleevenotes
Album: We Are Mostly Made Of Nothing
Label: Self Released
Year: 2013

01. Ghosts Of Former Lives
02. Taking Off
03. Go For It
04. We Played Out On This Movie Screen

Sleevenotes came into form in spring of 2013 as a writing outlet for Brad Couture, NH-based multi-instrumentalist, composer, music producer, and mixing engineer.  Having no real background in arrangement, mixing or music production at the time, Brad spent countless hours locked in his small apartment room late into the night, writing, researching, and experimenting.

"The majority of time I spent at first was just teaching myself how to use the tools and instruments at my disposal, and try and recreate what I heard in my head", Brad notes. "I had this burning desire to learn, to understand some of the mystery behind the whole process and be able to apply it myself."

"I've always had hopes to connect with other people emotionally through the attempts I make to pour myself into music", Brad adds. "That possibility someone has shared my frustrations and elations, my rises and falls. The painful nostalgia that paralyze you, and the homesick longings for some place you've never been to."

"Life moves us all in different ways. It moves me to write music."

"This album's atmosphere was inspired by Playdead's videogame "Limbo". The album is available for any price you choose, but we would greatly appreciate any financial contribution! We highly recommend to download this in a higher quality format like AAC since song transitions seem to work much better in this format than in mp3." - Cinématique

Lunarmare are a Greek band that play psychedelic/space rock. The truth is that I was impressed with the production, melodies and the album as a whole, that only few Greek bands have managed to do so! A really great work, which can place them among Monkey3, My Sleeping Karma and Mars Red Sky.

"Born in the minds of people that "boundaries", is too short a word to be set. Mind expanding, logic bemusing, emotionally appealing, we try to establish ourselves through time and place. Our yearning, to leave a trace."

News: Cult Of Luna

"The Beyond the redshift festival in London on may the 10th will be a very special show for Cult Of Luna. It will mark the end of an era and after that we will slowly disappear before we reappear again in some form in some indefinite future.Because of that Klas will join us on stage for the last time and we will play a whole lot of old songs which we haven't played for years or ever.

We are not quitting.2013 have been a very active year for us and neither do we want or think it is good to continue in that pace.We will not be a band that put out an album every 18-24 month anymore. We did that for almost 10 years when we were younger and were able to focus more on the music.After "Beyond the redshift" we might do a festival or two but after that we have nothing planned.Maybe we'll release another album next year or maybe in a decade, we honestly don't know.Sooner or later we will return in one form or another.
Cult Of Luna will not die." - Cult Of Luna

After playing live throughout the United Kingdom to much critical acclaim with the likes of iLiKETRAiNS and The Twilight Sad, Her Name is Calla released their debut album, The Heritage, in 2008, followed by a well-received headlining tour. The album lasts over 50 minutes, despite only containing six tracks.

In February 2009, they announced their arrival on the German label, Denovali Records. Denovali re-released The Heritage on vinyl in late 2009.

The band released The Quiet Lamb, containing 12 tracks and lasting over 75 minutes, on 8 November 2010. NME gave it a score of 8/10, describing it as “massive, pastorally apocalyptic music”. The Sun called it a “ten-track jewel of a record” that engages the listener “in a rare and beautiful way”.

Lead vocalist Tom Morris also tours and releases music as a solo artist under the name T E Morris, as does multi-instrumentalist Adam Weikert as Weikie.

A compilation of songs from the contemporary Hungarian post-rock (and related) scene.

The title derives from the old Hungarian proverb, "Lassú víz partot mos" (slow water washes the shore), meaning that great accomplishments can be made through patience and perseverance. We'd like to apply and dedicate this to our fantastic underground music scene.

If you like a song, please make sure to check out the artist's sites, detailed in the track info on bandcamp!

'ETT' is the incredible full length debut album from Row Boat and follow up to the successful 2012 EP 'Svaret är ja'', which drew interest in the UK and US.

Row Boat is an ambient/post rock project, which has been active seen 2009. The music is written, arranged and played by Mark Wardale which can be described as ethereal layers that meet crashing Post-Rock with horns and strings. Much of his work is based on geographical and Scandinavian references.

The first release was August 3rd 2009, in the shape of the four track ambient EP 'Romance'. The tracks were minimalist, ethereal and instrumental, as much of Row Boat's previous work has been. Following this, was another release of 'Svaret är ja' , translating to 'The answer is yes'. The six tracks drew from the ambience of the first Row Boat EP and added elements of post-rock; a transition that was slowly being added to Mark Wardale's songwriting. This release attracted attention from companies in the UK and US, prompting Mark to begin work on a full length debut album and continue to add the post-rock transition into his music whilst keeping the ambiance and beautifully haunting atmospheres that brought the layers together.

Ett was produced by Mark Wardale.
