More Recommendations

Winter has finally decided to leave the building, and as spring marches towards us in striding steps, the time has come to give you some new music recommendations for the coming months!


Band: Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra
Album: The West Will Rise Again
Only available as a double 7″ vinyl at their concerts, this shows Efrim and co back on form. The angelic weirdness of his voice, the monumental strings, and the uniquely individual style of music that is typical for ASMZ is a great start to the summer.
It doesn’t seem to be available from the label


Band: One Hour Before The Trip
Album: #1 and #2
Both available for free under a creative commons license, the Greek band have a distinct style, well worth the download/listen!
Get both albums free from their website


Band: Shy Low
Album: Shy Low
Another contender for one of my top recommendations so far, Shy Low have created an exquisite EP/Album. Huge walls of guitar, endless feedback and effects galore, great usage of samples (You ask me if I have a God complex? Let me tell you something: I am God!). Each track is a gem in itself!

Band: Eno
Album: -t
This reminds me of early This Will Destroy You… Nice layers of glitch on top of delicate guitar driven melodies, one of my top recommendations for the year so far.
Get this as a “Pay What You Like” download here


Band: Arbor Lights
Album: Arbor Lights
A new band from Birmingham, UK, Arbor Lights excel at clear-cut sounds, defining a warmth in their music that will get your feet tapping within the first bars of each track. A band to watch out for!

Band: When Clouds Collide
Album: none (yet)
The guys from the USA have been dabbling for the past year or so, and are working on a debut album. Another band to watch out for in the next months!

Band: The Best Pessimist
Album: To Whom It May Concern
A band comprised of one person from Ukraine, I’m surprised I didn’t come across this before. Specifically this album will be loved by thopse of you who adore a piano based tune. Reminiscent of Circadian Eyes and The Echelon Effect what appears to be mainly electronic is actually a finely woven set of compositions, perfect for a warm evening spent at a special location.
