5000... This a number of ...and nobody's cared of our
Breakfast in Tanger record.

Because of it I take mega-days off, a week for every
thousand of listens. See you on 18th of November if I
won't decide to break the silence earlier.

Take care,

Ghost Come Back (San Diego, CA) - Silence


Monumental but nice
This song is a really nice example how not to spoil a seven minute-long composition. I don't really liked the production (well... I compare such stuff with Archive or The Mars Volta so amateurs always lose, but still...) but I did enjoyed a tune as a whole. There's nice emotional touch at the beginning of it and great instrumental rock mayhem at the end. What's more one may ask? It's a recommendable piece,that's for sure. I .loved the melody, lyrics, guitar riffs.

Fauna – Have u ever talked to angels?


I haven’t found a record that doesn’t lack anything on jamendo for a lomg time, so when I found Fauna’s - Have u ever talked to angels I was more than happy. This subtle dark-trip hop album is what a Creative Commons connoiseur may really appreciate. Almost every piece there is worthy listener’s attention, so let’s talk about each of them.
Slowly – very engaging, atmospheric piece with great vocals and extremely interesting rhythm section. The words are quite gloomy, but that’s why it’s called trip-hop and not pop.
14th floor – one may see Portishead’s influence here, but it’s got such an intense mood that one may not take it as a vice, but an advantage.
Daily sick, casual sick – great samples, a deep-dark mood, exactly the way it should be.
Dreamless – it gets more melodic there, but more in Mo’Wax or Warp style than Aguillera one. Add very professional use of reverbs in production and one may imagine what’s the piece like.
Emptiness – the composition has nice vocal samples and space-like atmosphere (some Kid Koala influence, perhaps?) and it’s a little bit ambiental but still it doesn’t lose this specific Fauna touch.
Hollow morning – that one is a real masterpiece. Natalia Careva (a featuring vocalist here) takes us into a dreamy, sentimental trance trip one won’t forget soon.
Wasteland – the tune clashes between 20’s samples and Portishead-like mood. Yummy.
Hyperlite love – I think the most electronic one on the record. Solid, however a little bit uninventive compared with the rest of the record.
Rainbawl – next electronic one. A tune that very neatly mixes female voice with almost Kraftwerk–like sounds.
Tomorrow – a nice, melancholic goodbye, reminding me a little bit of Tryad’s tunes.

It’s ten out of ten, ladies and gentelmen. I can’t wait to hear their next album, really.

stay cool,

Rogue Frequency - Bridges


Poor production
The first thing that comes to your mind when you listen to it is very underground production. It sounds as it was recorded in a garage on a tape recorder. vocals are more hard-rock than indie, and guitars and mood generally folk-rock and not indie. As for violin... Was there any? Generally, though the composition is interesting one it needs to be rearranged and recorded once more.
