Monoceros - Happiness

Barcelona based Joan Malé (Monoceros), purveyor of a glistening, sparse brand of electronica returns here with 'Tales for 'Silent Nights'. The name Monoceros, meaning a faint constellation on the winter night sky, certainly encapulates all that Malé's latest LP strives for. Tales... opens with "The Day We Became One", a swelling composition in which Malé element-by-element offsets shards of digital glitches and brash electronics with delay-processed synth doodling and deep synth chords. Indicative of the man's dedication to combining the organic with the processed, the records opener is one of LP's highs, sweeping over the listener effortlessly...

Downstate - If Could Be

Early Satellite Morning is my debut long-player. The songs on this record were created between December 2007 and August 2009 before I moved to China. Due to being practically, surgically attached to my computer, this period was pretty prolific musically. After a batch of stuff doing the rounds as demo's, I had some of my songs from this era re-housed by Awkward Silence Recordings in the form of a split release CD with Porn Sword Tobacco. "Sleepweight", was also given a nice vacation on Radio 1 courtesey of Huw Stevens. The weaker orphans were left to gather dust on my hard-drive unil now. Having remained proud of some of these songs, i thought they probably deserved a new home themselves. So here they are, fifteen songs of humble melodic electronica, all living peacefully together as a glitch-wrapped free album.
I hope you enjoy the record, feedback and thoughts are always welcomed.
Good things to you all. - Downstate

Naono - Untitled Merrow

Naono from the amazing album Sleepy Pebbles..... With an inward flow, Naono's Sleepy Pebbles is a solitary ambient
album focused on the inner self. It's lonesome yet comforting in its
ability to convey a sense of familiarity through quiet and calming
sounds. Gradual shifts in pace and beats that whirl like the eddies of
a current, 'Sleepy Pebbles' goes with the flow. Sonics are soft and
smooth as if worn by time and the natural elements. Naono forms
atmospheres of blues and greys and invokes a hermetical sound that
places the listener into a state comfort and inner unity....

Naono (aka Antonis Simeonidis) is a recording artist, producer based in Athens, Greece. The music he creates blends melodic soundscapes and atmospheres with sliced and glued organic rhythms. Image creating music inspired from everyday sounds and surroundings.
Another Quiet Winter from NCThomspon and the Sleepy Pebbles from Naono, both released in 2010, are among my all time favorite albums. After i played them for the first time, took me several hours to touch the ground again. :)
