Kramies “The Wooden Heart” Reviewed at Schallgrenzen

“Recently emerged from a mail Kramies on in the promo box. The Wooden Heart. I stand up and clap applause. The beginning and the end, between four whimsical songs. Melodic folk and atmospheric dream pop. Kramies, behind it hides the Dutch-American singer-songwriter Kramies Windt from Denver, Colorado. Sounds that make us meditate. I stare off into space. Far away. It’s nice to dive for a few minutes in dreamy folk-pop and a touch of psychedelic. The Jason Lytle (Grandaddy) produced EP “The Wooden Heart” was released on the Australian label Hidden Shoal a year ago. Here and now, the music is still beautiful and timeless.”

Kryshe “In Between” Reviewed at Stationary Travels

“In Between is the latest release from Germany based ambient composer and sound artist Kryshe via Hidden Shoal. The EP was actually available in September, but was a new discovery to me this week. It is a lovely five track journey featuring crystalline piano...

Elisa Luu ‘Shebeen’ Reviewed at Recent Music Heroes

“Shebeen is the first single from Rome residing Elisabetta Luciani`s brand new album Enchanting Gaze. The single consists of manipulated sonic effects, catchy repeated folk chords, exuberant electronic hovers and ambient loaded panoramas. Undoubtedly she is an...

Chloë March “Nights Bright Days” Reviewed at Strange Alphabets

‘Chloe March’s third album loosely fits in this category (the concept album). But you won’t find an overarching narrative theme. Instead, you’ll find a suite of songs that use image-patterns of night, winter, light, dark with a sub-theme of Orpheus and Eurydice...
