Having perfected the controlled, well-structured output on
Dividual – a relentless musical assault of tightness and timing
- the band felt an urge to tackle the song-writing in a completely
different way. Loosing up, Letting go. Trying to make the impossible,
possible by making complex music flow in a more free form. After a swift and spontaneous writing-process, 4 tracks were ready to be captured.
Obstacles teamed up with their friend Sune Kaarsberg to begin the
recordings of Oscillate in their studio. This was a very dynamic process filled with experiments in sound and form. The result is breathtaking.
Like being caught in a beautiful storm where chaos and energy reigns.
While still somewhat futuristic in its aesthetics, Oscillate can also be
considered a nod back to a hazy forgotten past, paying homage to
legends of prog-rock and jazz-fusion whilst still maintaining the
punchiness and vigor of their previous releases.
Obstacles are a 3 piece instrumental band who have combined
Space/prog-rock with some Math-rock and come up with some great
sounding tracks. Frantic playing makes sure all the tracks hurtle
along without losing the flow and there is some excellent guitar
riffing and solos that are boosted with the addition of some
un-hinged sax playing. This is pretty hard to describe - play the
stream below and make your own mind up!

Dripping with animal magnetism, Legal Fingers brings
to their small Midwest hometown the kind of loud, sleazy
rock you’d expect to hear blasting from the speakers of a 1978 AMC Pacer in the parking lot of a 7-11. Successfully marrying the raw boogie sound of ZZ Top with the sordid hedonism of 80s glam metal, the 3-piece band write songs about fighting, partying, infidelity and strip clubs (just to name a few).
Legal Fingers play stoner rock with fuzz guitar leads
and riffs that make you want to drink alcohol very
fast - having a thunderous rhythm section that explodes
from the speakers as the songs hurtle along helps as well.
This is no-frills dirty rock and sometimes - that's all I need.
The band have asked me not to put my own links up but fret
not, my faithful download monkeys, they have a pay-what-you

"Town Portal play instrumental rock that crosses borders
of genres. Tapping on experience from earlier endeavors
in genres like death metal, shoegaze and math rock, the
three members bring components of it all into a melting pot,
creating a unique niche of original melodies and harmonies,
fixated on a skeleton of complex and playful rhythm structures.
Under the dogma of forsaking vocals and other superfluous effects,
the band throw themselves into a search of new meaningful ways to compose tones over time, with a heavy and dry precision.
After a European tour in 2010 and a minor row of Danish shows,
they released their debut EP entitled Vacuum Horror in late 2011.
The EP was followed up by another European tour in the beginning
of 2012. In Denmark the EP was praised in several large- and small
scale magazines, and the opening track Rosini is currently in rotation
on national Danish radio, DR P6. A surprising outcome for an
instrumental band, with its roots heavily planted in the DIY scenes
ethics and methods. At the moment they’re preparing the recording
of their debut album set to be released later this year."
Town Portal play instrumental math-rock but with a heavier feel than
say, Don Caballero. Striking guitar lines lead the songs but the thick
bass sound comes through this well produced EP and by making sure
the drums have a "live" feel to them, stop this from becoming just
pointless noodling. The tracks rock nicely and I think that when the time
comes for recording a full length album, they will be worth a return visit.

If you’re expecting street rock stuff from me then here it is.
It was recorded on a free recording program, a $2 PC mic
(luckily the last record paid for the mic), and a $0 budget.
All the songs were written on bass, all but 3(written earlier in 2011)
were written and tracked 1st on bass between 1 and 4pm November
17th 2011, the drums were tracked between 4 and 5pm the same day,
besides one that was originally recorded mid-afternoon May 1st 2011
(except for the drums that were tracked November 16th while I was
tracking drums for the other new recording) not too bad for someone
who has probably still spent less than 24 hours behind a drum kit in
their life. Guitar was tracked and the lyrics were written over the next
few days the last thing recorded was around 11:30am November 22nd.
I had a notebook I’d written titles for songs in during 2009 but no words
or music so I wrote them around those titles and saved about 4 for later use.
