Ascetic: – Self Initiation

I rarely find brand new bands which I immediately like. I don’t know, it’s difficult for me nowadays. I prefer old school stuff and am used to that kind of sound. I like more harsh and unpolished output. I even prefer some imperfectness, it makes a human touch to music which nowadays is filled with… Keep Reading

Surprisingly upbeat and lush, Principe Valiente charges the storm front with absolute demure and charisma.

Formed in 2010 as a shoe-gaze/minimal electro duo, Nicholas Wood and Kat Day have left deep impressions on the moody psyche of modern music, reviving the shoe-gaze genre of the early 90’s.

Saigon Blue Rain – What I Don’t See

I must say, this album was a pleasant surprise. My first impression listening to the first few tracks was that it reminded me a bit of Scarlet Leaves with its dreamy guitars and female fronted vocals. Saigon Blue Rain began in September of 2012 under the name ‘Stupid Bitch Reject’, a name that doesn’t quite… Keep Reading
