Breaking It Paves The Way For Technoloogiline Paike

19 Mar

Ringing in electronic and synthesized sounds, award winning Estonian experimental pop/electronic group Tehnoloogiline Paike brings an original sound in the synth pop world. Leader of the rising group, Evar Anvelt carries the group into a sound that can be cited as almost dream pop, carrying heavy synth and strategically placed ambient sounds. The creative process involved use of analog instruments and effect processors as well, yielding an organic, yet futuristic sound. Breaking It explores also the stream of consciousness with lyrics such as “shadows following me, floating the ground”. With a sound very similar to the early days of Animal Collective, Panda Bear, and Black Moth Super Rainbow, listeners can anticipate Tehnoloogiline Paike to continue carving their way in their own dimension.

Flaunt Brings An Atmosphere of Sound In Their Newest Track, Restraint

Flaunt puts their mysterious and noir sound on the map within their newest single Restraint. The light addition of drumming within the track and subtle, but powerful guitar riffs set the tone for Restraint as an intentional and focused one. With their musical aesthetic being on the same wavelength as artists such as Bloc Party, The Killers, and even Spooky Black, Flaunt makes their music completely unique and addicting to the auditory sense. Even within their track, the word phrases of “after you knocked me over and “you turned to the quickest escape” convey the track not only as a strong anthem, but also one that’s filled with emotion, despair, and dashes of melancholia. Previously earning an Independent Music Award in 2014 for New Discovery Artist, it should not be a surprise to listeners how authentic and raw Flaunt truly is.

Spencer Sabo Spins A World Of Galaxies, Grunge, And Instrumental Genius

Close your eyes and Spencer Sabo will take you away literally in another dimension with his latest album, entitled Color In The Gray Machine. The feelings of another world, powered by an undertone of galactic space and ethereal fluidity goes nicely with the fitting project, which is called Mind The Journey. Upon listening to the newly released album, one can almost find an undertone of nostalgia and psych rock as well within the sounds and strategic musical arrangement. The track, Rose Colored Glasses builds up an almost synth dynamic with a touch of grit and borderline 90s gritty grunge sound. The vocals are drawn out in a smoothing whirlwind and the instrumental genius builds an environment for the already strong standalone song. On the other end of the spectrum, Dessert almost sets up a very mellow, yet reflective ambiance, almost exhibiting strong reminders of glam rock. Recorded in Boston native’s Sabo’s studio, Color In The Gray Machine delivers an album centered around retro sounds and its coexistence in a modern world.
