Inertia Blooms – Cours, Camarade, Le Vieux Monde Est Derriere Toi

Released in 2008 to much critical acclaim, ‘Cours, Camarade…..’ was self recorded in bedrooms and rehearsal spaces between tours. Here are some of the lovely things people have said about it.

‘There are oh so many varied influences within this brilliant little EP, Tool (10,000 Days), Pink Floyd (Dark Side…) and even Deftones (self-titled). For those of you who love not so obvious prog or just something to zone out to I really can’t recommend this enough. 9/10’ – Rockpulse

‘Their mathrock blueprint is fully developed; echoes of Tool, Mogwai and Tortoise run throughout, but there’s a melancholic grandeur about this which is entirely of their own construction. 7/10’ – Teletext/Planet Sound

‘A kind of magic far too rare. You really ought to pick this EP up and, hopefully, experience that magic moment for yourself. This is good stuff, and deserves to be heard. 8/10’ – dieshellsuitdie.co.uk

American Green – Roof To Roof

“Roof To Roof EP” is my second EP.

I think that this EP should be categorized following genres…
Chill-Out, Pop, Electro, Post-Rock, Indietronica, Down-Tempo, Acoustic,
And so on.

I hope you enjoy this EP.

Thank you.

Tracklisting :

1. Rainbow, Puddle, Children
I imaged the situation that children played in a puddle after rain had
stopped.
2. Roof To Roof
This tune’s theme is “comfortable feeling”.
And, This tune have a lyric.
However, The lyric is strange sentence.
Because, It haven’t personal pronoun.
I want everybody to become a hero or heroine in this lyric.
So, This lyric haven’t such as ” I, my, you, your he, she they….”
And maybe, It is like a itemized form, I think.
3. Lumberjack In The Morning
I imaged the situation that the lumberjack works near his log cabin in
the morning.
4. At The Flowerbed Of My Garden
This tune is like a “Pi Pi Pi” “Pipo Pipo” computer sounds.
And, This tune was inspired by the day when I have planted forget-me-not in my flower bed with my grandma.
5. Talk With The Moon
This tune is very calm.
I image the full moon.
6. Street Trees
This tune may be Indietronica sound.

The Silent Ballet Compilation – Volume 13

Summer 2009

Volume 13 marks the beginning of the fourth year of The Silent Ballet’s compilation series. Three years ago the first volume was sent out to the world via the Internet, and today we’re still dedicated to bringing our readers exciting, innovative compilations filled with the best and brightest artists from around the globe.

We’ve come a long way since Poetry Without Words, but hopefully the series has shown that the website is unrestrained by genre and is willing to travel to any corner of the world to unearth up-and-coming musicians. Volume 13 feels particularly international, featuring artists from four continents and nine countries, yet also demonstrates that there is something that connects all of us nonetheless.

We’re committed to our goal of providing quality music in a respectable format without charge. As one of life’s greatest pleasures, music should be freely available to all and resistent to commodification. A big thanks goes out to all the artists and labels who made this project possible. Relevant links can be found below; any support is greatly appreciated.

Helsingfors – Schematics

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.

A physical CD release is also available from here and is being promoted and distributed by the new indie record label from The 405 website, 405 Records.

Tracklisting :

1. Angle of Depression
2. Truncation Error
3. Russian Inversion Notation
4. The Panda Conundrum

Part Rocket – Sparks and Beams

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.

Tracklisting :

1. Kingdom
2. Hey, Computer!
3. No Slack Battalion
4. Plagiarhythm
