The fin.: Pale Blue

Japanese dreampop band The Fin. take it slow and make it smooth on their new single Pale Blue. With falsetto vocals van vintage synths it's a throwback to the dance music of the late Seventies, a hybrid of indie production values and mainstream appeal.

Wednesday Call: The Line

Consider the odds of starting a progressive rock band in Tehran. The capital of Iran doesn't come to mind a a likely place for a bunch of musicians to play music that is inspired by Muse, Pink Floyd and Marillion. Wednesday Call was founded in 2011 and their latest album The Line is dedicated Levon Davidian, the father of Arin Davidian, the band's singer and lead guitarist.

Recorded in a makeshift home studio The Line sound a bit lo-fi, but the intricate textures of the keyboards sound surprisingly clear. It appears that turned down the guitar a bit t make room for the vocals and the drums(Saied Jame always comes in a bit late, like a prog version of Charlie Watts). Wednesday Call's music can stand its ground against the contemporary competition. Play the dreamy Green Fields or the freaky off-kilter rhythm Out of Nowhereland during a pop quiz and odds are that nobody will guess their country origin. Good music doesn't give a fuck about borders.

The Myrrors: Hasta La Victoria

Tuscon, AZ avant-garde post-rock band The Myrrors like to put a challenge. TakeOrgan Mantra, the first track from their forthcoming new elbum Hasta La Victoria, a twisted rage of rock that refuses to let go for ten minutes straight. They find a menacing and unrelenting rhythm as the foundation for their dystopian soundscapes, with a few choice lighter notes as pinpricks in their pitch black sonic tapestries.

Their Spanish lyrics tell tales of resistance and the odds of coming out on top at the end. Putting on Tea House Music in an actual tea room would make most clientele choke on their tea and biscuits, but those who stick around will be transfixed by a glorious lead string part that is part Arabian and part Tex-Mex. The Myrrors show bleak pictures, captivating art that commands full attention.
