Bizarre

Image may contain: 5 people, people standing and sky


Bizarre is a dream-pop/shoegaze band hailing from Estonia. They use a bit more electronica in their sound than most gazers and it adds an element of sound that helps distinguish them from the crowd.

They have a truly unique sound. The band has been around since the 90s but they sound as fresh as ever on this release.

Paces Lift & Ben Bounce




Paces Lift and Ben Bounce have made a beat record that really sets them apart from other beatmakers. The album feels organic, the samples fit perfectly, and the whole thing is a joy to listen to. 

If I didn't know any better I would think this was wholly original and that these guys were geniuses (they may well be).

Loads of skill, passion, and fun went into making this release.

CHROMATICS - BLACK WALLS

The Magic Numbers - Sweet Divide

Ivar Bjørnson & Einar Selvik

Image may contain: one or more people and concert

Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved) and Einar Selvik's (Wardruna) have created another epic album of Nordic folk rock with the release of 'Hugsja'.

In their own words...

"After the success of their previous collaboration "Skuggsjá"; Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved) and Einar Selvik (Wardruna) are now following up with an imposing new piece entitled "Hugsjá". The word 'Hugsjá' means to see with, or within, the mind - and it reflects the idea that one's mind has the potential to see further than the eyes can reach. By weaving together indigenous and contemporary thoughts, sounds and instruments, they are inviting you on a vivid journey - exploring the distant history and traditions along coastal Norway. 

Hugsjá was first commissioned by and performed at, Bergen International Festival in 2017, as part a series of concerts named Nordvegen ("the northern road"); inspired by local history and traditions in each of the places visited. Ultimately the material was recorded and became this full-length album. "

It's fantastic!
