Ffiper – VESNA

[SCL192]

Ffiper

“VESNA”

В основу альбома легла обыденность “Slow Things”. Меняется мир, добро побеждает зло, а музыка тем временем сотрясает душу.

Проект Ffiper (Файпер) был создан в мае 2015-го. Главной идеей первого альбома послужил внутренний переворот мира, переживания и любовь. Музыка писалась исключительно на iPod touch, а вокал на стандартном микрофоне от наушников. Так вышел в свет “Slow Things”. Через полгода началась работа над “Lit vecher”. Это был порыв поэзии, игра слов и грусть, воссоздаваемая авторами. Заключительной главой стала “VESNA”. Все тот же взрыв, что был в первом альбоме, но только в новом переплете. Атом тепла, внутреннего света и любви.
Все, что дальше – исключительно прекрасное. Все, что старое – частица истории.

Monkey Warhol – EP4

Monkey Warhol

“EP4”

Born in the late-1800s Monkey Warhol began making electronic music of various sorts, tones, and timbers in 1947. Inspired by Bob Dylan’s loud and abrasive “Metal Machine Music”, Monkey turned to music as a source of income after failed stints as both a zookeeper and dental hygienist. EP4 is HIS take on POP music (watch out Max Martin… there’s a new sheriff in town!).

Mr. Bitterness And The Guilty Pleasures – Songs From The Surveillance Age

[BSOG0061]

Mr. Bitterness And The Guilty Pleasures

“Songs From The Surveillance Age”

It’s been almost three years since we released the Xtended Edition of the excellent Mr. Bitterness album “The Good Fight” and here at blocSonic, expectations were running high for a new album that’s been in the works for quite a while. Well, with the release of “Songs From The Surveillance Age”, expectations have more than been met. This is unequivocally the best MB work yet. When you first approach it and see the six track count, you’re misguided into thinking that it’ll be a quick listen. Then you listen… and over forty-seven minutes later, you’re left stunned. Randal Helm aka MB couldn’t have been more relevant with the times we live in if he tried. I don’t want to give you any spoilers, but let’s just say that Inauguration Day felt like the most appropriate release date.

At blocSonic we’re working hard to build a platform to help our roster of artists increase their exposure to listeners who truly care about music. In that spirit, late 2017 will see us do more to get our music releases out to even more listeners. However, I can’t help but feel bad that important albums like this won’t be heard by a much wider audience. It’s all at once, well-written, catchy as hell and has something to say of substance. The simple matter is that it should be heard and blocSonic is very proud to release it. So, please, listen and enjoy. Don’t forget to share it with friends and family.

Huge thanks goes out to Randal Helm aka Mr. Bitterness And The Guilty Pleasures for entrusting the release of the important new album with blocSonic!

I wish the recent US Presidential election had gone a way that would have taken us a step toward making the themes in this incredible album a bit less relevant, however, unfortunately, this album became all the more relevant with the election of Trump. No more Balance of Power… Dark Days, indeed.

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

“топорная работа”

About:
«Третий альбом писался довольно долго. От него отсекались куски, которые в итоге перекочевали в анонсирующие ЕР “это нужно видеть” и “машина”. Титульные песни будут на “топорной работе”, остальные держались в секрете до последнего.
Как всегда, незримо участвовал Рома Белоусов, основатель проекта, которому в день выхода альбома, 26-го ноября, исполнилось бы ровно 40 лет. Следующий альбом будет содержать песни Р. Белоусова и совместные с А.Марабяном.»

Fodiator – No Reason

[SCL188]

Fodiator

“No Reason”

“High up in the attic in the middle of the night… a faint light”

Van Ooij (1970) grew up in the south of the Netherlands and was brought up around music. His father was a local folk singer and Joris had the privilege to try out all old and strange instruments his father made and gathered over the years. Van Ooij followed violin lessons and played a lot on the harmonium. From a young age he started to write his first songs, formed a group with his schoolmates and at the age of 13 they act on national Dutch TV. He bought his first synthesizer at his 15th birthday ( Korg ms10) and that seemed to be the start of experimenting and playing a lot with more ectronic sounds & instruments.
He started to write for theatre and in 1996 he co-wrote the soundtrack and leader for a 26 episodes Dutch tv series named “West-Zijde Posse”
With the urge to create and as a kind of escapism he founded Fodiator (after a genius of the flying fish family) in 2010. A melancholic blend of indie, pop, rock, folk and more….call it “commuter-pop”. His sound, made with all kinds of instruments in combination with his “falsetto” voice has a strong weakness… he often jokes.

Press & Support:
– 22 tracks Brussels:
“The things we learn while selecting these 22tracks! Apparently, a ‘Fodiator’ is a genius of the flying fish family. Next to that, it’s also a project started by songwriter Joris van Ooij in his attic. He’s an self-taught musician who creates his songs alone and then performs them with his Dutch – Belgian band. Van Ooij likes to create an atmospheric and melancholic blend of indie, pop & folk, that reminds us of what makes acts like Efterklang, Menomena and Guillemots so great. Great stuff for the winter, that is coming’’.

– Radio1 Belgium:
“Sometimes it is allowed to play plain pop music, so with this song by Fodiator. A rich layered sound and great story about the longing for the first sunny day of the season, told in just 2.24 minutes.”

– 3voor12 :
“Joris van Ooij, musician behind Fodiator is offering his unpolished music, made on his attic, on the internet….We heard four quiet promising tracks that we hope will appear to hear on EP soon.”

– Elite Muzik:
“I found a new record from Fodiator, an upcoming indie band out of Holland. The record is titled “No Reason”, and sound pretty dam good, give it a listen…”

“Apple From The Scrapple”

Запись неизвестного проекта, распавшегося во время записи, катушка с которой была случайно найдена Алексеем Микрюковым (aka King Imagine) под рековым пультом на студии, где работал звукорежиссёром. После чего он её пересвёл и скомпилировал в цельный альбом.
Сама же запись представляет собой классический шугейз в духе My Bloody Valentine, которому очень не хватает вокала.

Mastermind SX – Keep on moving

[DPH025]

Mastermind SX

“Keep on moving”

Mastermind XS is a dub-project from Saarbrucken/Germany, created by Daniel Stephan (guitar, bass, keyboard, programming, sitar) and Heiko Petry (vocals, lyrics, melodica, keyboard). Their music is based on a solid dub foundation: heavy basslines with conscious lyrics and deeply rooted dub & reggae with an interesting twist, integrating many influences such as electro, ethnic music, drum/n/bass and even indie or punk. Their sound unites different styles, which hardly fits into one single genre and are always exploring new musical spaces, combining their Ableton skills and live instruments, forming a unique ear-candy-mixture of grooves.

They have been busy releasing their music since October 2010 on diverse netlabels. Their first EP “One Dub Many Roots“, was released on the French netlabel LCL, while in 2011 their first long-player ”Reset all systems“ was released on Angel Dust Records. Their next album “Freedom of choice” was released in august 2014 again on LCL.

Dubophonic is proud to host their new album “Keep on moving”. It’s a compilation of 12 songs representing their unique and unconventional blend of dub & reggae. Modern and roots-elements are combined with drum/n/bass, electro, dubstep, indie rock heavy guitars, conscious lyrics and of course deep basses and delays.

Mastered by the pioneering artist, producer and peace activist Celt Islam, their new release (and their first on our netlabel) is a proof of the duo’s strength and innovation: writing reggae and dub oriented music with socially conscious lyrics and musically exploring different ideas, oscillating between danceable and meditative, powerful and calm, groovy and heavy, on their quest to define the far distanced borders of dub music.

The Cream Canteens – Moderate Peril

The Cream Canteens

“Moderate Peril”

The Cream Canteens bring you ‘Moderate Peril’

Feast your ears! This eagerly-awaited EP is a musical summit in all respects: a meeting of minds returned from remote audio peaks with a knapsack of treasure.

The Canteens fuse their digital experiments with the wiles of ancient folklore, creating a palette that is all their own. Each track is a bittersweet quest, moving from melodic flute ditties to sonic fuzz barrage, from lo-fi tinkering to laser-synth pyrotechnics. These warm-hearted tunes are guided by a firm hand on the tiller, with a daydream nod to the darker shores…

So, lay back and relax on this trans-Europa express and immerse your lobes in a mildly-threatening aural treat!

Solaris – Summer Edits

[LOR069]

Solaris

“Summer Edits”

Solaris was formed by Mark Sanderson, Richard Sanderson and Mark Spybey as young krautrock fans in Teesside in 1974, when they were aged 12 and 13. As the members grew up through post-punk, electronic music and free improv they have remained friends and still occasionally record together. These sessions were produced by Mark Spybey in Northumberland in 2010 and 2012 during the Summer holidays, and although the musicians have matured in the intervening decades, the influences of those original favourites (particularly the improvisational alchemy of Can and the cut-ups and aggression of Faust) are still audible.

Linear Obsessional is delighted to present their debut album- some 42 years after forming!
