We've Got Muscles

Phonotron

We've Got Muscles is a three-piece post-rock band from Cologne, Germany which was founded in fall 2016. Phonotron is the consequent continuation and development of what We've Got Muscles started with their first EP in 2017.

What We've Got Muscles came up with are six songs that feel like driving serpentines with 80 miles/hour with eyes closed. The new songs are constantly changing and challenging so that at the end of a song you have no idea of how it started. The recording sessions were inspired by old jazz recordings, where everything is happening in one room, all amps cranked up, and no corrections or overdubs afterwards.

We've Got Muscles is not looking for the perfect sounds but aiming to capture their live power and the energy of three people making infernal noise and enjoying this. If you listen to this record very loud, you`ll get a really good impression of how they sound live.

“Chaiselongue” is an experiment. We've Got Muscles invited the guys behind the YouTube channel Sofajams to record some noisy dreamscapes. Sofajams is a channel where musicians are invited to choose from a huge amount of pedals and other equipment and jam along with the unknown sounds the equipment produces. For the record they offered them a spot to link two songs, the only premise was the chords the whole thing had to start and end with.

Another important thing about this record is about mastering. It was done by Grammy winner Hans Dekline who also did mastering for bands like The Pixies, mewithoutyou or Touché Amoré.

Death Will Tremble to Take Us - Death Will Tremble to Take Us

Death Will Tremble to Take Us sends the listener on a beautiful and unforgettable ride. Landscapes of unimaginable ambient textures to complex post-rock guitar-driven melodies.

The freshman release from Death Will Tremble To Take Us is an artist broadening his instrumental palette. With wild guitar noise, ambient textures, and lo-fi mutterings all expressed through passionate melodies, the self-titled album from Death Will Tremble To Take Us stands in one’s minds like a bear on his hind legs. Relenting and unforgiving with its delivery, Death Will Tremble To Take Us has something that one can barely define, it is like a long forgotten memory being triggered so vividly that one is almost taken off their feet.

From his early days recording with cheap guitars and 4 track cassette recorders, James Randolph Fouty has always been able to capture moments that seem to stand still in time. His obsession with music even lead to him taking a job as a custodian in the High School from where he graduated. Working late into the night, having access after hours to the grand piano and all of the instruments in the orchestra rooms. Armed with a Macbook and some microphones, he taught himself how to play piano and to make the most of the available spaces that only need be occupied by a person and a will. Death Will Tremble To Take Us; first release shows what a person with some will can accomplish. This is the first in what is hoped to be many releases from Death Will Tremble To Take Us.

Sky Flying By – (Re) Routed

Sky Flying Bird is a post-rock project by David Palmer, who is based in Boston, US. He, as Sky Flying By, builds worlds out of music.

His music career began with a cardboard box drum set, and he hasn’t lost any of the creativity or imagination along the way. His musical worlds are deep and rich, full of graceful melody and arcs of delicate strings, where the notes fly and dip and soar and the drums build bridges that carry you safely across. Not just ordinary drums; he pulls in African, Asian, and Latin elements in addition to standard drum kits to give a variety of audio textures. He experiments until the alchemy is perfect, exploring different ways to use analog instrumentation in conjunction with synths, mixing live string sounds with digital to create new tones, or stretching a sound out digitally to give a familiar instrument an entirely new voice. He’ll use anything that works, from a bow on a guitar to yes, even a cardboard box.

Making music is about making something new, about going on a journey. Sometimes, though,it isn’t about where you’re going, but who you are, and who you become, along the way. And after you’ve grown and changed, you revisit the places where you’ve been, seeing them with new eyes. Sky Flying By is revisiting the places where it all started in the new album (Re) Routed.

New listeners will be charmed by the depth of sound and the combination of simple melodies with complicated undercurrents that Sky Flying By is known for. Long-time fans will be thrilled to hear this album, too- it represents a new zenith of skill from an already talented musician. Working with some equally skilled backup, Sky Flying By has created an album that leaps out of its post-rock niche and will be loved by anyone who really appreciates beauty in music.

Khara - Heaven Can Wait

Khara are a post-rock / instrumental quartet hailing from Kumanovo, Macedonia featuring the likes of Emil Pachkovski, Milan Trajkovikj, Filip Stojkovski and Filip Mihajlovski. They started playing together in October 2014. The name of the band comes from Mongolian mythology. It tells the tale of the first shaman who could bring the dead back to life, his name was Kara. They have been inspired by the myths of Kara, as well as his life with all of its elements.

From the characteristic heavy-riff guitars, through the high pitched shredding melodies accompanied by a heart-pounding bass guitar and drums, the soft and quiet instrumentals building into a climax and the ethereal live performances, they try to evoke feelings and leave their listeners to create their own stories. Love, war, hope – that’s what affects these four young men to wander through the world with one goal, creating music for people to relate to. To have something to look forward in times of joy, and have something to lean on in times of sadness. Khara pour all of their emotions into what they do, trying to show life as it is, a cycle winding between sorrow and joy. They hope that every listener perceives their music differently because what someone feels as grief, another one feels as happiness.

‘’Heaven Can Wait’’ is the their second album. It is their most intimate work up to date, with every song representing a intricate part of their lives. The album honors the struggle, the pain, the kindness, the happiness. It is meant to show the different sides of life and how every single person is meaningful to this world in different ways. How every single one of us is a light that shines in many ways. They want you to know that you are all important and you have a place in this world, and that’s why, together we can say – Heaven Can Wait. Band members say: ‘’Become you. Feel with your own heart. Think with your own mind. Pain is a part of your life. Embrace it. Trust in your emotions. Become free.’’
