from DISCussions No.1

"The process of mixing proceeded rapidly apace, a basic music bed lain first and a cover of overdubs laid over with that aforementioned facsimile of precision as the mix was assembled on the cusp, no plan but impulse guiding, orchestral samples chopped and spliced and spindled and at last split for an individual treatment, shards pitch-shifted and rejoined in a lengthier and more melodic unity."

Passenger - The Boy Who Cried Wolf [2017]

Passenger - The Boy Who Cried Wolf [2017]

By discover sounds, 2017-10-20

Michael David Rosenberg's song "Let Her Go" was 2014's British single of the year and earned him the Ivor Novello Award for Most Performed Work. He releases recordings under the name Passenger which has been a solo project for six plus years now. The Boy Cried Wolf continues Rosenberg's soft acoustic folk style with more very excellent songwriting and heartfelt performances.

The Jesus and Mary Chain - Damage and Joy

The Jesus and Mary Chain - Damage and Joy

By discover sounds, 2017-04-20

Damage and Joy find The Jesus and Mary Chain back in the studio for the first time since 1998. Youth takes the production reins and works his characteristic magic with the Reid brother's signature sound, doling out the brushstroke feedback within washes of acoustic and electric guitars and programmed drums. It's a damaged sound that takes the band to a new level that finds them in a place longtime fans (like me) won't mind going just to see what's next.

Aimee Mann - Mental Illness

By discover sounds, 2017-04-20

Aimee Mann's new album, Mental Illness, steps back a little from her last album's more firm nod toward her pop roots, sitting down and leaning in for an introspective look regarding what we encounter without; without this and that. Mann tells things she seems almost sure of and a little frightened being so sure about. All the while her melodies sway with a pulse beating a pattern we hope will find comfort and solace once shared, once spoken. Fragile as it might be.

Get the album now on amazon or visit her website where you'll find apparel and other things of goodness and grace.

The London Sound Survey

The London Sound Survey

By discover sounds, 2017-04-09

The London Sound Survey is a huge, sprawling website with "...a growing collection of Creative Commons-licensed sound recordings of people, places and events in the capital. Historical references too are gathered to find out how London's sounds have changed." that description doesn't do any justice at all to the scope of this thing. For sound lovers it's truly breathtaking.
