loaded energy - winterphantasie

loaded energy - winterphantasie

Genre: Ambient/Drone Ambient/Soundscape
Format: mp3 | CBR128kbps
Country: Germany
Size: 35 Mb

01. winterphantasie

Description: loaded energy is a completely underground drone ambient outfit of Attila Varga, a musician from Germany. So obscure that you can hardly find the album cover arts, and information about the project on any of webpages is very poor. At the same time, project's discography reaches 5 albums, published on, which is really impressive. 
Winterphantasie is a 39 minutes one-track album (or EP whatever), a brilliant work which is a perfect example of what sonic soundscape is. It feels like author has taken a brush and slowly painted a blurry and sleepy winter picture. Progressive and slow hypnosis of the first winter snow, and bleakness, bleakness, bleakness. This is not another sunny day full of shiny white drops. Hypnotic, but in some moments hopeful, this track is nothing else than 39 minutes of pure magic, caught in audio waves. Highly recommended to give it a try. You can find loaded energy music and download it for free/listen it for free using links below:

C'est la Mort - Empty Words Fill Lonely Spaces

C'est la Mort - Empty Words Fill Lonely Spaces

Genre: Post-Punk/Shoegaze/Dream Pop
Country: USA

01. No Time to Say Goodbye
02. Among the Ruins
03. Paper Ships 
04. Nothing Ever Lasts 
05. Bridge of Sighs 
06. Drown Out 
07. Bled 
08. Stand Fast 
09. Final Call 
10. Closing Credits 

Description: Drawing from post-punk, shoegaze, dream pop and darkwave, C’est la Mort excavate corners of prized record collections and secret histories to create an atmospheric and angular dream-pop soundscape. Dark and driving, they take cues from 4AD, the Chameleons, Cocteau Twins, Lush, Blonde Redhead, Colin Newman, and the Comsat Angels, while also reconfiguring their influences into something new.

Vocalist Kim House’s melodic drive on her Rickenbacker bass propels every song from start to inevitable powerful conclusion while Geoff Cox and Greg Forschler create walls and sinews of guitars that would make Robin Guthrie proud. Garrett Croxon anchors it all and pushes forward with an intricate post-punk jazz swing. Kim’s ethereal vocals float over the dreamy, lush soundscape (c).

Country: Denmark
Size: 25 Mb

01. The Creeping Wave
02. Two Birds On A Gun feat. Jules Ferrari 
  03. In Your Velvet Arms
04. Dead Moon
05. Stay Awake To See The Dawn
06. Free 

Description: a six piece band from Denmark using reach variety of additional instruments to create their smooth sound. In their tracks one can hear the sound of harmonica, organ, violin and the influence of such bands, as The Velvet Underground, 13th Floor Elevators, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels, Spiritualized, Spacemen 3 and lots of others. There's not a lot of releases in bands discography, as Peyote is being their only EP by this moment, but it is very promising. Taking the very best from their influences, they do not bring too much innovations to the established order of things in the genre, yet give us a fresh glance on it. Well-done psychedelic rock with mindblowing solos and a touch of shoegaze as a pleasant bonus. Really worthy to give it a listen. A sample video below:

08. Gravity's End - Thanatos
09. Gravity's End - Orion

Description: As long as shameless self-promotion is still considered to be extremely lame, I won't make an effort of reviewing this one. I'll just re-post a wonderful review of Recent Music Heroes on this self-released stuff.

This is a split album compiled of tracks by 3 talented artists. fydhws is a musician from Macedonia who used to develop one of the most intricate post-rock soundscapes worldwide at the moment. This might be described as an instance of instrumental rock music made up through the methodology based on sound art/sound modulation. On the other side, bc_ ranger (from Ukraine) and Gravity End`s (from Germany) play up more established yet excellent riff based epic rock sound borrowing from the realms of metal, musique concrète, and spoken word. However, all of those rich textures and majestic vibes are fulfilled with lots of good memories and endless melancholy. Beautiful. (original post here)
