Indiosingracia - "menosuno" (Bestiar Netlabel 093)

"Antes en Hospitalet no era como ahora, todo eran cultivos y campos. En el año 1982, hubo una plaga de insesctos llamada filoxera que atacó a las viñas, y los campesinos mataron las viñas y vendieron las tierras a FECSA, que era una gran compañia. Luego trasladaron el cementerio a las afueras de la ciudad y ahora ha ido creciendo tanto la población que el cementerio está dentro de nuestro barrio." (Words from Indiosingracia Bandcamp page)

Artist: Indiosingracia (Bandcamp)
Title: menosuno
Label: Bestiar Netlabel
Style: acoustic, lysergic, guitar, lo-fi

Setec - "Brittle As Bones" (Feralmedia)

"Equally influenced by the complex pop melodies of Joni Mitchell and the cut-n-paste aesthetic of Cornelius or The Books, Setec (the moniker of Sydney-based solo artist Joshua Gibbs) is a musical attempt to blend the organic with the synthetic; to meld the fleeting flickers of the past with nostalgia for a future that is yet to pass. On his debut full-length, Setec combines found-sound percussion with looped acoustic instruments, long-forgotten samples and cascading vocal layers to create a unique and compelling album. Brittle As Bones is a joyous, intimate affair; brief yet fulfilling, honest and heartfelt." (Words from release page)

Dolls Come To Life - "The Groundskeeper's Daughter" (self released)

"Dolls Come To Life are singer/songwriter Michelle Cross and experimental musician Joe Frawley. Their debut self-titled album, released in 2013 to critical acclaim, blended piano/vocal songs with dark ambient sound collages to explore the complex relations between children and their inanimate companions. Their new album, The Groundskeeper's Daughter, pushes further into uncharted territory of song and soundscape. A non-linear story emerges, in which the image of a garden is central. An inner awakening? Memories of an ancient trauma? A young girl coming of age among the topiary, the ivy, the hidden paths? There are ghosts in the garden, of that we are sure. Or are the events merely the disappearing ink of a fast fading dream? Whatever interpretation the listener may arrive at, The Groundskeeper's Daughter will certainly haunt you."

Air Scape - "Reflection EP" (Left Of Field Records)

"My EP ‘Reflections’, is the first real opportunity I’ve had to really express myself and my personal ideas in the form of music. Although I have been writing music for years, and more recently turning to more expressive pieces, I have never had the opportunity to put so many ideas and themes into one piece of work, until now. The main idea behind this EP was based around my own personal reflections on things that are currently most prominent in my mind. Aside from the piece ‘Purpose’, which I wrote for a different meaning, each track tittle has a specific meaning to myself to do with my past experiences or current thoughts/feelings. The track ‘Purpose’, however, was written and named specifically for the cause that this EP is going towards, which is suicide awareness and prevention. I believe that no matter what, no matter how useless someone is feeling, everyone always has a purpose for being here. Whether you discover it now, tomorrow, or in 5 years, you always have one. To me the song portrays this by starting out slow and then having a sudden rise during the later stages of it. I hope you, reading this, can also relate to, or find a self-satisfactory meaning to a piece from this EP." (Words from release page)
