HṚṢṬA – Discography

July 20, 2012

We took a brief hiatus from new releases we like to “classics” we like. HRSTA for all of you who aren’t familiar is a project from Mike Moya. He left GY!BE (and then came back when they got back together). HRSTA uses a lot of whispery thin vocals and unconventional sounds, like mock-theremins with a screwdriver on the fretboard of a guitar. Unfortunately it looks like they’re on a bit of a break.

Solkyri Demo

August 22, 2009

Solkyri_album artSydney post-/prog-rock trio. One of the better sounding local demos I’ve heard in a while, although the two songs seem to jump around from one subject to the other a bit much – but that’s only opinion.

The Caution Children – Vacations

July 29, 2009

I don’t know whether to call this ‘full of contrasts’ or ‘all over the place’. I think the vocals don’t lay over the music that well but I can definitely appreciate what they are doing.

Chon – Chon EP

July 8, 2009

musicOK, I’ll admit it. Metal isn’t my thing. Far from it, really… but this album… words can’t really describe how much fun it is. The music is tight, fast and sends me into a jealous / envious rage every time I put it on.

Quick fact – the drummer is / was 11 when they recorded this EP…. Download the fucking release!

The Exploration – Basement Demo

June 15, 2009

sshot-1I think I speak for Stacey when I say, we love this band. They added me on MySpace one day, and what a nice change of pace that was (I usually get adds from your typical fledgling Post-Hardcore band). I’m hoping you guys will also like this as much as we did. To classify these guys is hard. Saying their a simple Math Rock band doesn’t quite do them justice, because their sound is quite unique. However, if you’re a fan of Native, you’re going to be a fan of this band.

65daysofstatic – The Destruction of Small Ideas

June 9, 2009

5471ebdfNow, I’m not going to lie. The main reason I posted this was because of Circle Takes the Square’s brief appearance on the song ‘Conspiracy of Seeds.’ I guess I’m a fan boy. But if you put that aside, this also happens to be one of my favorite Post-Rock groups. I’d give a run down on the highlights of the album, but my computer is down, so I can’t do a recap myself. Just take my word for it. Please?
