Music Monday: Toe

Toe

Local artist to: Tokyo, Japan

RIYL: Math Rock, This Town Needs Guns, Shy Trafficker, This Will Destroy You, The Album Leaf

 The vast majority of the music is instrumental in nature and is also known for its melodic, clean guitar settings. Additionally, the compositions have repetition from typical rock motifs, but use very subtle changes in beat and rhythm to form a unique sound. The band has changed their sound over their musical tenure by incorporating acoustic guitars, rhodes piano, and vibraphones in their most recent releases. source

Music Monday: The Gentleman Losers

exposing unsigned or lesser known bands to the masses…or to the three people that actually read this. today’s band:

the gentleman losers

local band to: helsinki finland

riyl: pan american, alias & ehren, low

the gentleman losers’ music has been called post-rock, alt-country, folktronica and ambient americana. it’s been described as mesmerizing, cinematic, soothing, and ominous. there’s been comparison to vincent gallo, boards of canada, stars of the lid and angelo badalamenti, as well as neil young’s dead man soundtrack and ry cooder’s paris, texas. it has been called music from a land inhabited by kerouac’s characters.

it’s a land of long forgotten crooners on crackly old 78s. tapes with no name, found in a basement. a telefunken mixer from the 1950s. midnight recording sessions in a haunted house. the distant din of the city. the silence of the woods. freight trains in the horizon. abandoned towns on the edge of the desert. fading photographs of lives past. dead butterflies fluttering in the setting sun. a darkness approaching. an archipelago of insomnia. memories of things to come.
