“Ethic Endless Fun is a whole new territory for music lovers searching for something different, and not just noise music different, but an alternate and refreshing vision of the concept of rhythm.”napsebasty

ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND
DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1.- With the release of his debut LP back in 2021, the German artist Beatdenker has introduced his love for complex rhythms and taken the unconventional to the dancefloors. Since his debut, he has been honing his skills at creating the bounciest rhythmic worlds possible and mixing them with electronic dance music, steadily building up what is now the second LP “Ethic Endless Fun”. You can read our review here.
2.- Not sure if the 2005 animated film Robots inspired the title of this virtuoso band. JUNK is the eclectic fusion project of bassie music theorist Aaron “Dubl A” Seener from Long Island, New York, and saxophonist Dale “Dirty D” Pearson from San Diego, California. Hailing from the opposite corners of the United States, JUNK combines jazz with funk and the magical powers of the duo on their tools of expression. Their latest debut EP Chromatose features five super tight songs and runs for sixteen marvelous minutes. You can read our review here.
3.- ‘Goddess Unwilling‘ by Gilan in her own words: “Initially intended as a ‘bare-bones’ acoustic project as a placeholder for my songs that didn’t quite ‘fit in’, this project turned into an experiment that I hadn’t realised I needed to make expressing the different phases of my grief. One woman, one guitar and a lot of experimenting with effects has resulted in this simple yet quietly powerful and moving piece.
4.- Hailing from Brighton, UK, AmbientAlt-Rock duo ‘TheFuchsias‘ released their debut EP ‘Isle‘. Contrasting the dark and light, The Fuchsias guitar layered rhythms and shimmering ambient noise carefully treads the unusual balance of hypnotic and unpredictable.
5.- Howling Bee “Endings & Beginnings” in his own words: “Written and recorded over 2021/22, these songs cover experiences of hurt, hope and happiness from recent years. From divorce to the sad loss of two friends and bandmates to suicide to new beginnings in the Welsh countryside”
6.- Michael Crean in his own words: “‘Songs to the Sea’ has been a 6 year labour of love. Whilst producing for other artists, starting an electro-soul collective, writing music for theatre and film and moving across the corners of London, I developed a series of songs and poems. As the pandemic struck Crean finally sat down to weave together and finish the project. This became ‘Songs to the Sea’ – a 7 track concept Album.”
7.- Pathways “Last Long” in their own words: “Our EP covers songs about looking back at life, and realizing that even though you’re always pushing forward, you already have everything you’ve ever wanted.”
8.- Boneripper “Vengeance & Forgiveness” in their own words: “These songs are the accumulation of furious heavy riffs, hard grooves, energetic vocals and a straight to the face attitude. Perfect for picking up heavy weights in the gym, lashing out at your boss, yelling along in the car too, or blasting loudly after a heartbreak, setback or let down.
9.- Species Traitor eponymous debut album in their own words: “Thematically the record is largely about existentially confronting climate change, referring both to the horror of losing control and the relief of submission. Frequently weather is used as metaphor for emotion and vice versa. Life is constant change, and defeat and destruction make room for other living things to grow. You fall in love, you fall out of love. Civilization can only be understood under the “long view”.”
