By Will Oliver, February 14th 2020

Jeads (full name Jonathan Eads) is an ambient electronic solo artist out of Bellingham who takes sounds from the most unlikely of places, finding their beauty in a unique way. Take his new album Under the Veneer, in which he relied on an old rusty music box as the album’s main instrument.

This is not merely a gimmick, instead, it’s a source of inspiration, one that radiates with warmth, beauty and truth throughout the album.

By Will Oliver, August 31st 2018

Keenan Branch originates from the mountains of the Pacific Northwest (and is now based in Portland) and makes music under the moniker Rohne has spent years honing his craft, traveling the world with his laptop, headphones and field recorder, resulting in what has culminated to the release of his debut album Meridan, which will be released on September 28.

Similarly, “Aurora” is a thoughtful and meditative track from the album that is made with tons of passion and care and sits firmly in a world of cinematic wonder that allows the listener’s mind to travel far and wide.

Carlos Cipa & Occupanther – “Trow”

By Will Oliver, May 7th 2017

Carlos Cipa & Occupanther are a German collaborative duo of German composers, who released a new EPĀ entitled Trow.

It doesn’t take long for the title track to win you over with its cinematic qualities of amazement and wonder, something that honestly could’ve been mistaken for an bonus track for the Interstellar score. There’s a rather humanizing quality to “Trow” that’s hard not to get lost in a sea of reflection.

Take a listen to “Trow” below and allow your mind to do all the rest. If you like what you hear (you will), go ahead and stream and buy the whole EP over at Bandcamp.
