Fugue presents an arduous journey through a quagmire of genre confusion and deceivingly orchestrated pieces of music. Love, time and a soft spot for over-complication gave birth to their first effort that is full of everything they think makes music great. There’s something for everyone on this splendid 17 and a half minute adventure through a veritable sonic paradise.

Maths is the study of quantity, structure, space, change, and related topics of pattern and form.
Rock is a naturally occurring solid aggregate of minerals and/or mineraloids.
‘Schematics’ is the debut EP from five piece Helsingfors, including all four ex-From The Sky members, and is an instrumental post-math-rock hybrid, a logical progression from their previous work. Upping the complexity and melodic layering mixed with upbeat, jarring indie-rock, ‘Schematics’ was recorded primarily as a live band and bursts with the live energy this brings.

The record was written towards the end of 2008, and recorded over the winter of 2009. It’s something of a summer pop record. Or about as close as we’ll ever get to writing a summer pop record anyway. We hope you like it.
‘Sparks and Beams’ is a beautifully crafted and studied record, full of interweaving guitar and bass lines and intelligent flowing drums, creating a gloriously chiming and melodic post/math-rock EP.

Tangled Thoughts of Leaving’s music is progressive by nature. The inclusion of sparse influences, guided by concept and fused together, is the conception of their own sound, as each musicians respective inspirations force the collective into unchartered territory.
After several years of existence and growth, mid 2007 saw Tangled Thoughts of Leaving construct themselves a purpose built, make shift creative space.
A medium sized room, dedicated to forward thinking; the birth of new sound. In that very room, what was previously theory, became reality, and so began the Process of four people leaving mediocrity behind them.
In the months of January, February and March of 2008, TToL used their creative space to record a concept, aptly titled ‘Tiny Fragments’. This EP was to represent their current thought process. They gave themselves a series of themes, ideas from a previously recorded improvisation and a set amount of time. What followed was roughly 3 months of sporadic sessions, in which the 18 minute, 3 part title track was written and recorded.
With the creation of Tiny Fragments the band have demonstrated that they would rather risk potential failure than never pursue the invention of interesting art. Tiny Fragments was an experiment and is the final step before they put a short lived emphasis on live performance, then return to the studio to record their debut album.

‘A Musical Study of Vicious, Flying Insects’ is Double Handsome Dragons’ second release and was given a limited self-release by the band late last year but is now joining their first EP on Lost Children. If you do want a CD copy there are a few remaining which can be ordered directly from the band here.
Developing their brand of Alternative Instrumental Rock, ‘A Musical Study of Vicious, Flying Insects’ continues to incorporate electronic noodlings into their mix of dynamic harmonising guitars and jarring drums, flicking between discordant staccato sections and driving melodic passages to create a impressive three song EP that continues to show the promise and potential of Double Handsome Dragons.

Inertia Blooms are currently in a place between two places.
Full of new material, but concentrating on the last year of degrees. We have re recorded some things that have evolved since we first did them. One is a reworking of a track off the Hostages EP, the other was available on the Scrooge compilation that Robot Professor put out a couple of years back.
You might recognise both of them as the collective last song we usually play at shows. We’ve also found another track down the back of the sofa, it had some lint on it and was next to a shilling. It’s also the first acoustic thing we have released . This is a companion release to our 2008 EP ‘Cours Camarade, Le Viuex Monde Est Derrière Toi’, and it’s name is a partial translation.

Inspired by the documentary “Venice: Behind the Mask” by Marco Gentile and Ryan Simon, ‘Venice’ is an attempt to articulate the visual images of Carnival into music. On the surface, Carnival can appear purely driven by entertainment and pleasure. Yet, underneath lie themes of death, rebirth, and social and cultural identity. Northvia explores the darker side of Carnival, hoping to reveal something more behind the mask.
