Obscotch is Jake Moore, an electronic musician from Perth, Australia, presenting us with an excellent set of five meandering yet raucous tracks to listen to. Each track has it’s own style, some rolling along easily, other that chirp and pulse with a vague dub-like feel. Reminiscent of BoC with a hip-hop twist, this is an EP definitely worth listening to.
The Ukrainian post-rock crew takes a new style and adds their own old-world flair. This is not to be missed – one of the best post-rock bands I’ve come across since I started this website. Giant builds and drop-offs, guitars and violin mesh together, creating a moving and thoughtful experience. I’ll have this one on rotation for quite a while, I can assure you.
The Internet Archive has a huge selection of recordings of ‘The Shadow’, a radio play that ran in the 1930’s and 1940’s. I have strong memories of my grandfather, in his most ominous voice, repeating the opening line of the show; ‘Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!’.
BTW, I have added a forum and a shoutbox to the site, so drop a note and see whats going on, or post up some music that you think should be added to the site.
SubjectRuin has produced an album similiar to the style of music made by Dream Theater. This album is a rarety in the free online music world, most bands of this genre don’t have the polish that SubjectRuin does. The album has awesome cover art too. Thanks to JT Bruce for pointing this out.
A new twist on the classic game of pong. Plasma pong utilizes the presumed two paddles and a ball to knock back and forth, but you can also eject plasma and shockwaves to confuse your opponent. Great fun!
