Grotus - Brown [1991] + Slow Motion Apocalypse [1993]

Grotus was an experimental, politically charged rock band from San Francisco, California, active from 1989 to 1996. Their unique sound incorporated industrial rock, sampled ethnic instruments, two drummers, two bassists, and angry but humorous lyrics. Their shows included large projected videos sequenced with the songs, and could almost qualify as performance art, with the singer channeling any number of hideous figures involved in the subjects of the songs.

Consisting of Pete Swanson (vocals, drum machine, and electronics) and Gabriel Mindel Saloman (guitars, feedback, electronics), Yellow Swans created a dense ocean of sound using various analog and digital machines, all locked in a spiraling web of feedback.

Oathless - Standing Where Our Paths Shall Meet [2010]

Thanks to Tom from Hawk Moon Records for the e-mail.

When Oathless was initially conceived as an acoustic folk effort in late 2006 by Simon Housley, the current sound associated with the project that has constantly evolved in the past four years would have been hard to imagine with the raw and simplistic sound that once existed. “Standing Where Our Paths Shall Meet” is an ambient release of much more sophistication and quality than the original three-track demo released in 2007.

Thanks to Neil from too many fireworks records for the mail.

Neil Milton is a modern classical musician from Warsaw. "Neil's music is a glacial snowdrift of ambient soundscapes and haunting, elegant modern-classical compositions. It sounds like Ólafur Arnalds and Jóhann Jóhannsson conspiring in secret with Jónsi & Alex and Library Tapes and draws further influences from Sigur rós, Mogwai, Arvo Pärt and Fryderyk Chopin." from myspace
