New Colors - The Sacred Trap

A few months ago I made a post about New Colors remixing our Collocational Time Systems. He has just released a new album titled "The Sacred Trap". The atmosphere is really nice on this. A lot of forest-suggesting sounds, delay on rhyhthms, reverb everywhere, and a nice flowing mood to the whole thing. There is some electronic characteristics to The Sacred Trap, but it is balanced with a good amount of acoustic organic sounds. If you're in the mood for some good ambience, or have liked our past posts about Forest Clay or Soft Circle, I would recommend getting this release.

Sumsun is Judson Rogers currently residing in Tuxedo, North Carolina. I downloaded a first run thru of a collection of songs called LAKE LIFE--a full-length release that is expected to be out early 2010. This stuff is really good almost modernizing 80s, glowing synths with big beats; the mix is very punchy and loud. There is definitly a House feel to this stuff too. I'm waiting to hear more about Sumsun when the album comes out you'll know.

This is probably my new favorite band, it's too bad their album isn't out yet. Viernes is Alberto Hernandez & Sean Moore out of Winter Park, Florida. Their sound is heavy on ambience and feel good melodies, with carefully crafted noises used sparingly in waves of blissful timbre. On top of that, their videos are seriously amazing, I can't say enough good about this band, experience for yourself:

Viernes -- Swimmer's Ear

Viernes "Liquid Tunnel" from Charles Bergquist on Vimeo.

they have more songs up on their page...
they say "SINISTER DEVICES will be the title of our upcoming debut LP slated to be released early 2010" , then an EP...once they find the right label. keep checking back.

Recently I downloaded "Cities Vs. Submarines" by railcars, the experimental project of Aria Jalali out San Fran/LA California. I had found railcars randomly one day when browsing through kria brekkan's friends on myspace. The music is all really bit-crushed lofi sounding, and all melodic indie melodies. At some points it reminds me of Sunset Rubdown with less rock and more noise, and all about electronics.
The two songs featured are from the release "Cities Vs. Submarines", I have linked to his newest release as well, titled "Cathedral With No Eyes". The live shows seem to be pretty amazing, with his friend Sam Farzin adding to the music and his friend Fez working the visuals. If you're in California you can catch some of railcars' last performances in November, a few in January, and then a whole European tour.

Houston Davis Jones - Projected Living

Projected Living is the second release from Houston Davis Jones--a composer from West Palm Beach, Florida. The album is layered with intricate instrumentation and the lyrics are themed with the concept of well.."projected living". Each song on Projected Living has incredible arrangements. The two songs featured are probably my favorite on the album, both create such vivid moods; the way they flow from one to the next is soooo good.

2 Projected Living
3 Everything, Forever
4 Song For The Sun
5 Time Heals All Wounds
6 Eyes Of A Dreamer
7 Course Of Conversation
8 We Are Who We Are

Run DMT is an experimental project out of Baltimore, Maryland. I downloaded Run DMT's Bong Voyage a few weeks ago, it's a collection of songs a minute long on average; each is a pretty good idea and the short length keeps it from being a long drown. The mix is low quality, which works for Run DMT's style, but at times it's a little distracting. There is an interesting blend of euphoric ambience, psychedelic, and pop to these tracks, and the whole thing is pretty cohesive without everything sounding completely the same.

tree hopping - how pragmatic EP

how pragmatic,
apples, listen plain: growing taller, standing thin, brown race horses

tree hopping is the solo effort of Gabriel Berrios from Totally Nebular; his newest release "how pragmatic..." is characterized by his melodic guitar riffs and home-studio-like rhythms and keyboards. This is worth checking out; if you like it, the rest of his catalog is for free download on his myspace.

Collocational Time Systems Remix

New Colors is a sort of electronic, minimalist side project from Travis of Visions In Caves, an experimental band from Birmingham, Alabama. Travis made a remix of Hear Hums' Collocational Time Systems, splicing and rearranging some elements; refreshing for me to hear it a new way.

Starting blog

Hey guys,
I really like blogs I use to do it a little back a year or so ago but couldn't keep up, the purpose of this blog is just to talk about or get the word out on news of bands I like and also post updates about Hear Hums.
