Week 37 2021 Hi y’all here I’m with another round of 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to released all of them recently (if you want you can take a look to our previous week here).
1.- Jannek Sunbow Debut Album, home to 6 tracks and offering close to 30 minutes of listening pleasure. And it is a pleasure to listen – the gentle and melodic atmospheres that develop right when you press play radiate an endless sense of soothing calmness. You can read our review here
“I would like to talk about three strange instruments which we used for Anoice’s ‘The Hidden Forest’ album, for the first time:
- The first instrument is GANK Drum. This is a round-shaped percussion instrument which looks alike HandPan and Hang, but it is smaller than them and sounds warmer and softer. We asked Kenji Azuma who is a guest percussionist to play it on one of album songs, ‘into the light’.
- The second is KOSHI Chime, a kind of wind chimes that is a type of percussion instrument constructed from suspended tubes, rods, and bells. Eight chords are welded with silver into the metal plate at the base of the resonance tube, but they are all tuned on A, D, F, G, A, D, F, A. We used this instrument on ‘trickery and butterflies’.
- The last one is Harmonic Pipe. It is a just hose pipe like one for a washing machine, but it sounds interesting if you shake it around vigorously. It is available to hear on ‘waiting for the light’.”
3.- Rynofish Eponymous Debut Album In their own words ““We always hear people say ‘you gotta release singles and get on spotify playlists’ and all that. Which is partially true! But we felt an album legitimizes us as a rock group and we didn’t want our fans to feel we were only feeding them bits and pieces of us. We aim to writing music that is inspiring to people, music that the people enjoy over having many monthly listeners who just turn a blind eye at our music and never listen again.” You can read our review here.
4.- Sono Christof Forgoten Songs of Worlds Adrift In his own words “After over 30 years of making music for “friends and family” Forgotten Songs of Worlds Adrift is my first published piece of music. It’s a cinematic journey into other worlds made of all the science-fiction novels I read and all the atmospheric music I was inspired by – from Sergey Snegov to Frank Herbert, and from Agalloch to Vangelis.”
5.- Cem Sari Enigma Cem is an accomplished producer of EDM styles like Electronica, Nu Disco and Downtempo, but has also a deep love for handmade music with Guitar, Strings and Keys. Enigma contains seven genuine and fresh tracks of electronic dance music, soulfully mixed with eclectic styles.
6- Danny Mellin Streets Of Nowhere in his own words “I’m really happy with the way these songs came out. It’s definitely the best stuff I’ve done so far and a clear progression of my songwriting from the times before I had the band.”
8.- Sehruhtonin In The Meadow “is Sehruhtonin’s Debut EP which inspired by her own relationships with others, herself and her mental illness, follows the story of dandelions and how they start off as yellow and happy, then transform into a round white moon, slowly after time blowing away, scattering apart like the stars. ‘In The Meadow’ is an EP which seeks to bring comfort to the otherwise ignored weeds within a meadow, whilst showing that they can be just as beautiful and as impactful as the prettiest flowers.”
9.- School Disco Heads Still Here “Expanding their sonic palette through raw experimentation and DIY production, School Disco are set to make waves with their second full-length offering. Written and produced during lockdown, the album rolls through themes of addiction (‘Poison’), politics (‘Isolation Never Knows’) and authoritarianism (‘Break’). The trio use their bold narratives to relay messages to their fans in an exciting and honest way.”
