Rhian Sheehan - Stories From Elsewhere ~ Preview



RHIAN SHEEHAN - Stories From elsewhere

Im so excited that Rhian has recorded a new album! His last EP 'Seven Tales of the North Wind' remains one of my all time favourite records. If you like Riceboy Sleeps, Jónsi, Frakkur, Sigur Rós then the EP and his new album are an absolute must have for your collection. Whilst I can't help but compare Rhian's music to Riceboy Sleeps, I am in no way am I implying that he has copied it...
What he has done though is to skilfully employ something of that magic almost 'fairy like' quality of bringing in the most sublime childlike 'twinkles' that come and go, skipping in and out of the music in a way that gives Rhians music a rare childlike wonder. On the other hand there are moments of beautiful orchestral grandeur that swell and ebb with a feeling of such joy and satisfaction that seem to effortlessly lift you out of mundanity.
I feel a lot can be implied by the album cover as to the direction this album wants to take you and I have to say its a place of wonderment that I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone & everyone. Rhian has produced a masterpiece here that Im beyond happy to have the opportunity to tell you about :)

Released March 26th

Victoryrosemusic is closed for the time being...

Victoryrosemusic is closed for the time being. Mediafire locked my account and thus I have no access to my files. In something like 3 years there where 3-4 complaints of a copyrighted nature.
Mediafire insisted this constituted 'multiple complaints'
They were for concerts already publicly posted elsewhere on the internet. I simply shared this music (which had no commercial value) because it moved my heart & I wanted to help the Artist get some more exposure.
Sadly some very small man in a grey suit living a grey life somewherewould rather shut down the sharing of freely available music!? based on a law which is designed to protect music companies loosing music..!
 [Of course if these music companies hadn't been deliberately screwing everyone for the last 30 odd years to fill their own pockets out of greed and arrogance they probably wouldn't be collapsing/going bankrupt now]
Karma is infallible !

Victoryroselossless however will continue in the near future. VRL is where my heart really lies as it exists to offer fans of Sigur Rós the opportunity to listen to live Re-mastered concerts & videos.
you can find me sharing SR elsewhere if you look.
It might be possible to re-upload some things every now and then. please email me

Dead: Update 3

Edit: Update

Despite numerous conversations and offering many rational suggestions Mediafire has shown nothing but a stalwart attitude, based on 3 complaints, all of them posted with no knowledge or intention of them being illegal on my part. Despite this pitiful number of complaints, which over thousands of post amounts to virtually nothing. Apart from the obvious, its not clear why they and many other similar companies have started acting in this, at best childish / at worst, evil manner.
Looking more deeply its clear this comes from such mental poisons as greed, arrogance and selfishness...mostly greed.

This site started as a place for fans to download and enjoy re-mastered concerts of Sigur Rós.
It started to include other artist's music after I asked the wonderful Sam Lee (The Tumbled Sea) if I could offer a few tracks to people from his self titled first album as the beauty of his music moved me very much and as such I wanted to share this beauty with others. This attitude i thought a good way to give something back to the Artists by promoting what I thought was heart moving music. It was going well, with over 5000,000 hits until a company called the IFPI reported a live concert link of 'A Winged Victory for the Sullen' to Mediafire.
Mediafire, where then driven by my other 3 reports from previous years to blanket ban my account with no chance for defense or discussion. Not what you might call good business.

Anyway, my goal has always been to provide a place where fans of Sigur Rós can enjoy Re-Mastered concerts should they wish. With that in mind I wont be posting any more on this site but will endeavour to continue and finish the concerts over on Victory rose Lossless at some future date ...where my heart lies

Nils Frahm - Sessions

Two sublime sessions from a favourite of Victoryrosemusic, Nils Frahm. The 'Watershed Session' has some great dialogue from Nils interspersed with the first half but the last half has him just playing which you'll understand why when you listen! The 2nd track features an extraordinary full 22 minutes of sublime music that has to immersed into.

Other Lives - Paris 06.06.2012

Really lovely quality hour long concert from folk rockers Other Lives. There is the video as well which I will upload if requested. I don't have a lot of time at the moment so some of the tracks may not be cut correctly... If the audience is applauding then the track ends there! :)
Thanks to Aline x
