Helios + Goldmund - Unreleased Music - WORLD EXCLUSIVE!




















Helios + Goldmund - Unreleased Music - WORLD EXCLUSIVE!

I had the good fortune to have come into my possession a number of tracks of unreleased material from Keith Kenniff. Keith kindly gave me permission to post some of them. After a lot of thought and listening we have arrived at the selection presented here. There are 12 songs in total, covering the range of Keith's musical talents:
3 from Goldmund, minimal piano compositions, 3 (from some thing not heard heard yet), Keith's Ambient Drone music, another 3 featuring Keith guitar skills and finally 3 of his more familar Electronica, Ambient music.
This is a wonderful as it showcases Keith's many and versatile musical talents. You wont have heard any of his Ambient Drone music yet, but it really is superb
I hope you enjoy this treat posted through the kind permission of Keith

FINAL POST

With this last post of the Glasgow concert I have finished this part of the project that I started just under a year ago, to Re Master the entire back catalog of Sigur Ros in concert in 320 MP3 and FLAC.
There may be a few more that I have missed or that will arise from the vaults. In the mean time, until Sigur Ros start touring I will continue to post beautiful music to share with you as I find it.

To Mark this occasion I will be posting something very, very special and a world exclusive in the coming days !

Thanks
Jon

The Sigur Ros Message Board Music Project - Album - VERY EXCLUSIVE !





























The Sigur Ros Message Board Music Project - Album - VERY EXCLUSIVE !


In april 2009 a board member on the SRMB suggested we could do a music project. People would send in sound clips and we could make songs out of them. Four months later and here is the result. For a bit of 'tongue in cheek' project this CD is actually really good. There is a great split between Upbeat Electronica and some lovely Ambient Acoustic stuff. Give it a try. (in amongst the tracks there is a well known artists who has quite a few albums out at the moment!)
- Please note the back cover featured above is a revised, corrected cover which can be downloaded by simply clicking on it and opening in a new window or just right click-save as etc

NB: The artwork above is new and is different from the tagged. Please download it separately. Thanks to Munross

Tiny Vipers - KEXP Session + Video EXCLUSIVE!




















Tiny Vipers - KEXP Session + Video EXCLUSIVE!

Ive just bought the new CD of Tiny Vipers 'Life On Earth' after just one listen. Its absolutely stunning. Rather than ramble on myself, I will just include some press. You can download her KXEP Radio session featuring songs from her 2007 CD 'Hands Across The Void' and a video of the song 'Dreamer' from 'Life On Earth' from the links below

"Dark corners and spatial abysses haunt and taunt the curious.
Nothingness questions existence and philosophically torments those willing to address the disparity and similarity between the two.
Simplicity is best employed when conveying these: the most complex of these notions and emotions, like a barely colored canvas that intensely tells only the story it intends. Jesy Fortino makes the noises that tinged canvas cannot.
“Life on Earth” is all eerie echoes, naked acoustic guitar and the vulnerable, otherworldly voice of Seattle’s Fortino, the waif who records and performs as Tiny Vipers.
It’s Fortino’s second long player released on Sub Pop, tailing her 2007 debut on the label and first-ever full-length “Hands Across the Void,” and the two years of progression show. With slightly more production, there’s a cleaner vibe to “Life On Earth,” that doesn’t render the record sterile.
Fortino calls up Cat Power from Chan Marshall’s “Myra Lee” period, a voice certain of nothing but the syllables it carefully spews, with a shaky, bare guitar.
“Life on Earth” is the play between light and dark, with its every sonic element being both. The light guitar plucks balance the dissonant, dark buzz, just as Fortino sings sweet and her blurring echoes remain.
“Eyes Like Ours” opens slowly. “Do you recall when the world was still young? Just a small town,” Fortino asks. She channels ageless spirits in her delivery, without show or silliness, her voice bowing from lovely alto to deep and brutish, dulcet to savory.
“Dreamer” unearths some of Fortino’s most polar, striking lyrics: “I’m going to die. I’m dying for a way out.”
There’s a thematic breath throughout the record, each track taking its time to hypnotically inhale and exhale, the shortest just over four minutes in length, and giving lyrics and strums their due.
With length comes some of Fortino’s best: The title track stretches over ten largely instrumental minutes and finds the medium swaying peacefully with a world of uncertainty.
Here her voice is reminiscent of Joanna Newsom’s regal note bending and she sings, “I’ve been first and last, living slow and living fast.
Always trying to get the best of it all. But there’s more to life than getting. There’s more to the beginning.”
This pure and primal gothic viewpoint is not often explored in popular culture, but Fortino drudges through. What could come off as jaded or manufactured is, instead, childlike and infinitely, wisely wondering"

Recommended If You Dig: Joanna Newsom, Karen Dalton, Cat Power

The Calm Blue Sea - Siegfried, an original score UPDATE

Received my CD's yesterday and was inspired to write a further comment - From the sleeve:
The album was recorded in one long day on April 4th 2009 at Cacophony Recorders in Austin TX. In keeping with the spirit of the event the album was tracked live, with virtually no corrections, revisions or additions

Just makes this album all the more extraordinary in my view and has increased my respect for these guys and their music .
