Platonick Dive have released a video for their track “Spoken Noise,” off of their upcoming LP, Overflow, due out Feb. 17 through Black Candy records.

The atmospheric track is accompanied with a video littered with drone filters and shots of the band and urban landscapes. Taking you in slowly, “Spoken Noise” pulls you in with a soft pace before things get eccentric.

Midway through the piece the track extends into an entirely new experience, with soaring guitars and samples that elevate the slow, yet steady introduction to the work.

S. Carey Releases Beautiful EPK For ‘Supermoon’

If you hadn’t noticed, I LOVE S. Carey, especially his latest LP, Range Of Light.

With that, I am happy to say that his newly released EPK for the upcoming EP Supermoon, complements the atmopsheres touched on Range Of Light and grant the listener a better insight to where S. Carey finds his illumination, specifically in family and nature.

The near seven-minute video shows S. Carey traversing all fields of nature, commentating on how nature, and the wilderness can illuminate his music.

Noting that family has had a huge influence on Range Of Light, S. …

Author Stream Debut Album ‘Of Brighter Days’

Author is streaming their debut LP, Of Brighter Days. The album is up for pre-order on iTunes.

Of Brighter Days is a vibrant and illuminating work that soars with bright guitars, carefully delivered vocals, and a thundering rhythm section. The band will certainly appeal to fans of Copeland, Circa Survive, and any listener who enjoys being taken away in a sea of calming musical expression.

Hailing from Minneapolis, MN, the band is sure to leave a mark in listeners, especially considering Of Brighter Days is their debut record. The album flows together as a moving being, giving the illusion …

Full Bonnaroo 2015 Lineup Revealed

After an interesting campaign to slowly reveal artists for this year’s Bonnaroo, the full lineup has been revealed.

Before, fans were asked to dial a specific phone number, to which the operator would reveal a single artist playing the festival. For those who haven’t been paying attention, or participating in the telethon-like reveals, the entirety of the lineup has been released in one nice giant blob of music.

An eccentric and diverse lineup to say the least, Billy Joel, Mumford and Sons, Against Me! Sylvan Esso, The War on Drugs and many, many more will take the stage this year. …

REVIEW: Future Of What – ‘Pro Dreams’

Artist: Future Of What
Album: Pro Dreams
Genre: Indie, Electronic
Label: Feat. Drake Records

On paper I really should have no business with Future Of What‘s debut LP, Pro Dreams, but it’s 2015 and I am trying to delve deeper into the vast world of sonic expression. Finding myself proven for my excursion into the unknown, Pro Dreams is a beautiful record cultivated with care and style.

From the first sounds of “The Rainbowed Air,” I was taken elsewhere. Ethereal sounds lay the clouds that the vocals drag you across. Slow, caring, with a hint of depression, Future …

Cerulean Salt was one of my favorite releases of 2013, and I am sure excited for what Ivy Tripp may bring. Experiencing “Air,” Crutchfield has added looming ambiance to her roster. The hauntingly beautiful track will sway all over the place, carrying you with it. The howling chorus will remind you of just …

EDITORIAL: What Will Be The American Movie Theater Experience In 2015?

After a trip to an AMC theater to see The Theory of Everything (which is an incredibly moving and powerful film that you must see), I found myself questioning the current state of the American movie theater experience. In a market where everything is now a “luxury” experience, it seems as if every theater is doing their best to turn themselves into a faux-luxury cinema – and to be honest, it feels completely unnecessary.

As a first-timer at this specific theater, I imagined my experience would be the same as most AMC theaters. Upon entering I found that the entire …

REVIEW: Black Beach – ‘Play Loud, Die Vol. 1′

Artist: Black Beach
Album: Play Loud, Die Vol. 1
Genre: Rock

I’m not entirely sure if I should be mad when listening to Massachusetts’ Black Beach, or somewhere between anger and serenity. See, Black Beach is a band that trucks their sound through the mud, funneled through distortion, static, anger, sludge, whatever. You name it, it’s there. But what holds all these tones together are melodies that flow beautifully with one another, creating a perfect balance of disgusting and peace. With bass lines flowing in between guitars drowned in their own reverb, drums pounding in the background, and vocals …
