Three decades later McVey & Williams are taking us on the “Long Road Home”

9d086e6f4566c677c746d251ecc986397372

After a long day spent listening (and reviewing) music we get to “Long Road Home” by McVey & Williams. We open their Drooble page to do our casual background check and wow, just wow. It seems the record we’re about to listen has been 34 years in the making. Yes, this rock’n’roll album is actually older than a huge part of our user base. How cool is that? We won’t go too much into detail about how it’s possible to…

Haste Publika from Portugal will take you on a 26-years-long journey with their music

b36e5a422d563e21053059f0f8629c4b9850

Haste Publika is Portuguese rock band formed back in 1992. And even if they look like your typical stadium rock band playing their 2014 record “NinguéM Disse Que Seria FáCil” it seems their music has been through a lot. The whole record feels not exactly as an album as each track carries its own sound, its own production, and atmosphere. We’d say that it’s more of a journey through time showcasing everything Haste Publika have wanted to create. We have…

The cinematic world of Benedict Roff-Marsh and his Unmade Movies

a2144093227_10

We are 100% sure that everybody who’s ever attempted to record and release ambient music had to use at least once the description ‘it’s like film music but without the film’. We are now listening to Brisbane-based composer and producer Benedict Roff-Marsh and his most recent release “Unmade Movies” and it seems he’s turned this notion into the actual concept for the record. Unmade Movies features nine vast synth-based soundscapes in the vein of Berlin School music but with a…

Classical training meets futuristic sound in NonSequitir by Ellipsis Ganym

Untitled design

Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Ellipsis Ganym comes from classical music training as a singer. After numerous collaborations with other artists, ‘NonSequitir’ is the first solo EP he’s showing to the world. The record is emotional and personal. You will have hard times pinpointing it to a certain genre frame and we always love music that’s hard to describe but extremely enjoyable to listen. In the self-produced EP ‘NonSequitir’ Ellipsis Ganym has incorporated influences and inspirations from a large variety of…
