Music to play in the cold winter nights – The Enchanted Door by Vales Elia


Vales Elia is a UK duo that works within the field of folk music but is also heavily influenced by darkwave and new age. Their latest release ‘The Enchanted Door’ is one of those records that appeared late in December 2018 and here we are making sure they are not lost in the avalanche of holiday releases, deals, promos and whatnot.

It was not too long ago when we took a closer look at experimental hip-hop artist Chad Carman’s epic mixtape Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters with Boom Bappin B-Music™. This time he’s sent us over a shorter record that also brings us back to 2016. In ‘Carny Barker’s Mix Tape Circus™’ Chad is taking us in a realm as intensive as expected from him.

Soul Filter are creating beautiful worlds in ‘A Minor Conspiracy’


Soul Filter is a duo by Karen and Mike Penton who are not just playing music somewhere between indie, alternative and pop rock but are actually skillfully combining all those genres in something of their own. ‘A Minor Conspiracy’ is their brand new LP and it saw the light of day mid-December 2018. It’s always tricky to put out a record in the last weeks of the year as it’s a wild time and people are overwhelmed with stuff to…
