On The Road with Snow Burial’s First UK Tour

Video Premiere: One Sentence. Supervisor – Scope Explosion

Things are stirring in Switzerland of late. We featured the rather brilliant Lord Kesseli & The Drums a few months back and now One Sentence. Supervisor have popped up on our radar. They make widescreen psych-pop; sweeping in scope and dr …

Drew Lundberg from Often the Thinker

We discovered Often The Thinker a few weeks ago when Drew got in touch regarding their latest album Better Part of Vice and frankly we were completely blown away by the densely layered, jazz infused post rock; so we grabbed some time with Drew to find out a bit more about the band.

Video Premiere: Lazybones Flame Kids – No Summer Ends (Live In Sardinia)

Under the Influence with Nicolo, Klaas & Jordi from BIINDS

BIINDS blend a broad spectrum of sonic influences, including electronica, post rock and classical, in to a unique palette from which they build captivating, but slightly discomforting, sculptures of sound; imagine Massive Attack, Dead Can Dance and Godspeed taking a road trip in the dark on a soaked and lonely highway and you’ll be in the right ballpark. With all that in mind we were fascinated to know what influenced them and their music.

Under The Influence with Stuart from Rail Cables

At the beginning of last year, Stuart first got in touch to let us know about a project he was just starting which was going to be “a new series of compilation records featuring new music inspired by train travel”. Since them they’ve been knocking it out of the park with their releases with the latest installment out in January and featuring Steven Hodson (Oceansize / Kong) & Gareth JS Thomas (USA Nails). We thought it would be a good time to ask Stu to pick his three records that set him off down this path.
