Gloria Adios - "The Circle Opens"
Hey! We are a indie/spacey/heavy/everyone-high-fiving-everyone/rock outfit from around Baltimore that recently released our self-recorded album. We are super stoked about it and we are trying to spread the word about it as much as possible. We'd love some feedback, plays and/or internet points!
(a good place to start, besides the beginning of the album, is track 4, which we released as a single: Pre-war Businesswear)
As soon as the vocal kicks in at the beginning of Latimer House track ‘This Is Pop’, there’s an unmistakable Brit-Rock-circa-1982 vibe. The song, which is a tongue-in-cheek musing on the wasteland of pop culture, is a friendlier ‘Town Called Malice’, or a cuddlier Ian Dury & The Blockheads, a pleasing alt-indie ditty that trots along beneath rock-steady drums and crooning Hammond organ.
Latimer House are actually based in Prague, though their heritage is truly international. The band members’ home towns span Toronto, London, Virginia and Baku, but inevitably Joe Cook’s lead vocal lends the music a distinctively English stamp. Influenced by a wide range of genres from classic ‘60s and ‘70s pop and rock through funk, folk and New Wave, the four-piece have all played in various bands over the years, eventually gravitating together to form Latimer House in 2010. All The Rage, the album for which ‘This Is Pop’ represents the lead single, is their debut release.
Though the standard line-up of the band - guitar, keys, bass and drums - gives All The Rage a classic feel, the dynamic range of the album is deepened considerably by the addition of various session musicians, including trumpets from the mouth of Tommy Levvechia and cellos from the bow of Jan Keller, a Mohican-sporting member of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.
Fans of The Smiths, Syd Barrett and Talking Heads will find plenty to occupy them here. All in all, as the band themselves always intended, Latimer House represents a most worthy antidote to the ubiquity of over-produced, over-wrought X Factor pap.

About Plastic Barricades:
Romantic and honest, gloomy and curious, melodic and melancholic, Plastic Barricades chronicle life in the troubled yet fascinating XXI century with painstaking sincerity, asking questions and trying to find the answers. Inspired and influenced by almighty Radiohead, Oasis, Coldplay, Muse, Keane, Razorlight, Nirvana and many others, trio loves to experiment with styles, sound and approach.
The band was originally conceived in Tallinn, Estonia in 2007. In September 2012, after almost 4 years of touring and gigs all around the Baltics, guitarist and vocalist Dan Kert “evacuated” from gloomy and boring home country to live and create in magnificent London where he met Daniele Borgato (bass guitar) and Frazer James Webster (drums), students of Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP).
Now PB is gaining momentum, extensively gigging around UK, recording the new album, collaborating with charity organizations such as Blood Donation Centre, Red Cross and Oxfam and booking UK/European tour for next summer. This autumn the band has been nominated for "Oxjam Band of the Year" and "MTV Brand New 2014". New single “Shine!” will be released on the 24th of March.

As you might expect from an artist whose name sounds like an Eighties games console, Kbit fits very much into the space-age / house / electronica genre. However, Kbit’s music has a far greater depth of field than this observation might initially suggest - this is music with heart, emotion and groove, a series of gorgeous ambient landscapes that ebb and flow but, importantly, are all built on ear-catching melodies and moving chord sequences.
The man behind Kbit is Australian Kosta Andreadis, who, after a few years producing house music under his original namesake ‘Andreadis’, began to yearn for a more personal approach to music production, and Kbit was born. The resulting ten-track album, Un Boombox Symphonique, was inspired by the notion of soundtracking an astronaut floating peacefully through space, and in fact this may be the most effective way of describing the record. Atmospheric, synth-driven and beautifully layered, Un Boombox Symphonique is an album that genuinely transports the listener.
At times Andreadis references so-called ‘chip tune music’ (a genre inspired by old-school video game soundtracks); at others he operates more in the arenas of slow motion disco or nu-school breaks. Either way, Kbit is a beguiling, multi-layered sonic treat, which promises to continue to deliver across multiple listens.

Richard Tyler Epperson is often referred to as a singer-songwriter, but in truth his musical reach goes far beyond what that term implies. Perhaps more accurately described as a multi-instrumentalist, Richard’s inventive acoustic indie brings to mind Elliot Smith, Jason Mraz and at times John Mayer with its pensive qualities and ‘young man grappling with the big wide world’ mentality.
Twenty-nine years old and based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Richard released his debut album Falling Between The Stars in 2013. With a little assistance on the mixing and drumming front, Richard played all the instruments on the record, as well as writing and producing it himself, and went on to promote it at multiple shows across the state of Utah as well as on local TV and radio stations.
Hourglass, Richard’s sophomore release, veers playfully between the whimsical, the brooding and the upbeat, exploring the complex vagaries of life, the passing of the time and the challenges of finding happiness as you grow older. Unexpectedly, the album is at times rather reminiscent of northern British indie bands from the Nineties and Noughties, bands like The La’s, The Verve, Travis and The Coral.

Greetings from Afterthem Our music genre is experimental electro grunge.We have free downloads available at
http://facebook.com/afterthem1 http://twitter.com/afterthem New Song “Hidden Cameras” By Afterthem, featuring Jen Case on vocals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDe0YdNKzvY https://itunes.apple.com/sk/album/hidden-cameras-single/id684370808
Electronic outfit Afterthem creates art that is as brilliant as it is polarizing. Appealing to a niche audience that appreciates over-the-top creativity, Afterthem’s music is introspective, infectious, and unpredictable. It is these elements that provide the canvas for their music, which is never without deeper meaning.
Their latest track “Hidden Cameras” showcases the band’s marks the latest step in artistic progression. What listeners will first notice about “Hidden Cameras” are the textured guitars, bass, keyboards, and electronic effects that produce a wall of sound almost nostalgic in nature. In a presentation that the band refers to as ‘electro grunge’, Afterthem is able to convey a feeling of edginess and paranoia, which happens to be the meaning behind the song itself.
A collective effort of electronic artist Dave George and bassist and vocalist Jenny Case, “Hidden Cameras” is a fascinating collaboration constructed online using two different studios. The lush instrumentals of George combined with the powerful voice of Jenny Case grazes each emotion on the spectrum, and has the ability to truly inspire deeper thought.
“Hidden Cameras” represents a track for listeners searching for something new. The input of each artist involved is vividly reflected, which creates an incredible level of diversity; each element perfectly complementing the others almost seamlessly. Their music can also be previewed on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDe0YdNKzvY
Artist Name: Ben Pagano
Song Name: Robot Jazz
soundcloud link: https://soundcloud.com/benpagano/robot-jazz-official-single
"Keyboard-soul prodigy Ben Pagano’s “Robot Jazz” is a full-bore, funky track that’ll be sure to get the whole space family dancing. Evocative of freaky, smoke-stained legends of yore such as Sly Stone, George Clinton and Shuggie Otis, the track’s cracked-soul vocals and whacked out keyboards make a refreshing change of pace from the homogenized sounds dogging our ears today.
The tune begins with a build up, as the talented and tight band shifts into gear and Pagano goes through a series of funky warm ups. Soon the groove comes in, lined with chicken scratch guitar and tight drums, contrasted by smooth piano and warm bass. The instrumentals nicely compliment Pagano’s voice, which exudes a shocking amount of soul. Toward the end of the song Pagano busts out an extended experimental piano and organ solo that beautifully illuminates his chops, culminating in a howling crescendo.
For the recording of “Robot Jazz,” authentic period details were heavily attended to; only microphones that would have been available by 1975 were used on the track." - Steele Robertson Kratt
