"We Are But Hunks of Wood" is The Anglo-Swiss producer's second full release. He took a new direction with this album, and I like it. Not a typical Quiet Ambient artist, but these instrumental trip-hop beats are too good to pass up. Watch in 1080p for full effect. Below I also posted his Start Shootin' remix which I've been listening to on repeat.

Time to breathe some life back into this blog. I'll attempt to do so with Sun Devoured Earth, a Latvian solo project. This guy knows how to create a mood, and he does it so eloquently by meshing gloomy dream pop with elements of shoegaze and post-metal. Seems a bit complicated, whatever it is, I can't stop listening to it.

Happy 4th of July! It's getting pretty pathetic how little I have been posting lately, but I'm not going to make another promise to post weekly, I've tried that and failed. But anyways, Mooncake! An incredible post-rock band from Russia. I guess I should be posting an American band on this great day, but this track is too good to pass up. Check out the acoustic and the original!

I don't think I've featured a Greek artist yet. So, I am introducing Deadfile, well I think that this song is by Deadfile, it isn't on the Bandcamp or on Last FM, but it sounds strikingly similar to the rest of the artist's tracks. Download the free seven album track on Bandcamp.

The very first post of this blog was Lights Out Asia. And now I return to the Milwaukee based trio because their album Hy-Brasil is going to be released on June 5th! (Although it has already leaked on the internet somehow).Lights Out Asia has continually amazed me since I first heard “Radars Over the Ghosts of Chernobyl” four years ago. They have been in my top five ever since. Their last album, In the Days of Jupiter, was my least favorite album so far and I didn’t quite know which direction they would move after that, but this album is their best so far. I have a feeling it’s going to consume me for the next few months. This album will take you elsewhere, hopefully to the mythical fog cloaked island it’s named after. This song and video absolutely blew me away.

The Gentleman Losers consists of two brothers who have been making music together since their early teens. The Finnish duo bring a fresh sound to my ears, and I like it! This song is perfect for starting your day. They released a self-titled album in 2006 and "Dustland" in 2009 which has a neofolk twist to it. Check them out!
