Half Hearted Hero - Isn't Real (2016)

I believe HHH will always be one of my favorites, no matter what.

some days you feel it, some days you don't / some day you're gonna burn that boat / and you'll watch your wishes float to the ruins / one day you're fearing oncoming change / next day you're pummeled by the same old same / old habits die, hard rain's gonna rain and didn't it rain // there's no time to shield your brow when your break can't part those clouds / you've been punching in and out in attempts to wrench this doubt / that you'll never mind the gap, that you can't delete the past / that the world is mostly trash and what doesn't burn returns to vats / to float down to the ruins

Suis La Lune / Shirokuma 12" LP

I was never meant for this place 
The last sleep serves as my escape 
Where my body is an empty vessel 
And visions becomes real

Lypurá - á LP (2016)

Recently Lypurá contacted me giving a heads up on their á release. They told me they played with Karina Kvist this summer. All in all, this release has a concept professionally designed, both the recording and the artwork and stuff. Musically, this plays well to my ears, giving me me joy, sadness.            Enjoy.

La Dispute - Tiny Dots (2016)

Soundtrack for their so called documentary. I quite liked the live songs. Enjoy.

ikiru - S/T (2015)

Jungbluth - Lovecult (2015)

Don’t wait, it’s all on us. Alles nach dem selben Muster.
Forget the rest is easier done than said.
 Schon ein paar Mal durchlaufen, I’ve been here before. 
Or has it been the two of us? 
Until the day we give it a name.
 Until the day we stop giving it a chance.
 What’s our status? What’s the name for that feeling? 
Run twice as fast, get half as far. 
Until the day we gave it a name.
 Until the day everything stopped.

No Real Pioneers - Every Inch is a Hope (2015)

I thought I lost it all, 
I lost myself 
But the stranger told me: 
"Look around - every inch is a hope". 
And my eyes, my eyes! 
My eyes are hurt 
And my feelings blurred 
But I understood one thing - its not the day to fall

PASTEL - L'Acchiappanuvole (2015)

Recently, well its been quite some time actually, PASTEL contacted me giving a heads up on their new album. L'Acchiappanuvole  is not your everyday release. It gives you intense and transcendental melodies, yet keeps you in context. Bands effort can be seen anywhere in this record. I must say this one is a keeper.

Directly from the band:

“The Cloudcatcher” (originally in italian “L'Acchiappanuvole”) is the first album for Pastel, originally born in 2013 as an instrumental duo; the band continued to evolve itself including vocals and lyrics strictly in italian. The album is a concept about a “leap into the void of ourselves” which symbolizes the present's elusiveness and it comes out “double dressed” having both instrumental and vocal version.

Suis La Lune – Distance / Closure (2015)

I must say, I'm a big fan of Suis La Lune. This one strikes me quiet well. Rather short in length, this has the classical Suis La Lune sound. Nothing extraordinarily new in this one, but gives me bands recent stuff to grind through the days. Cheers.

Wet Petals - s/t II (2015)

Wet Petals just released their new full length EP and it's rad!
This is well executed, passionate and sophisticated. My favorite track is Opium summer, it sounds rather fantastic with that midi-like twisted ending. 

Cascade also kicks in nice.

" Everything beautiful slips away, 

as time passes soundlessly 

into the tranquil blankness 

of a dreamless sleep "

Edalene - Im Still Here (2015)

This one is Edalene's first EP, which is very promising. Seems like the band executed various mixed elements to show what they are capable of, weighing a little bit on the aesthetics side. 

Well produced at home, these 3 songs makes me wonder what direction the band will take on their next product, to steer away from the alike.

All in all, this one looks cool. Enjoy.
