explores the dark elemental nature of the human heart, as well as environmental and post- apocalyptic themes. Evi Vine’s sound is both sublime and haunting.

"Gracefully standing somewhere between dreampop and new wave, 'Nicht Vergessen' is made up of 15 finely cheselled songs, each one of
whom is directly related to the homonymous chapter of the novel, written by Raphael Bramont, voice and guitar of Starframes, that will
follow the album release. The story takes place in Berlin from the 1940s up to contemporary days and gives a wide view on modern
society by following the dramatic life events of main character Friederich Braun."

British cult outfit The Venus Fly Trap to release 'Icon' album
VENUS FLY TRAP - Icon
When I was given the promo package of the VENUS FLY TRAP 'Icon' LP from Glass Modern Records I didn't know what to expect, yet another British "electronic post-punk" group I thought to myself...
I started to listen to "Icon" and was wowed by a flood of truly early 80's sounds and memories ! I put on my headphones, sat back, eyes closed and let the tracks transport me to my favorite decade...
Listening track after track I could not but notice the influences of the Stranglers, the B52s, and surprisingly even Jean-Michel Jarre. I don't have a favorite track, I loved all of them ! This is one album that I'll be listening to again soon...

Kristin Hersh Releases new album ‘Possible Dust Clouds’
Kristin Hersh - Possible Dust Clouds
“Sometimes the most subversive thing I can do musically is adhere to standard song structure, sometimes the creepiest chords are the ones we’ve
heard before, twisted into different shapes, and sometimes a story is lived a thousand times before we can ride it like a roller coaster. Nothing
wholly unfamiliar is gonna make you look twice. When you can describe a record as being “deceptively” anything, you’re hinting at the sociopathic
nature of music. Something I love. Imagine truly buying your own sunshine and charm, but also your darkness and violence; the two sides of your
psychology showing each other off in relief. Songs can do that...we can’t, really. Darkness we’ve seen. Dark sunshine? Still cool." Says Kristin Hersh.

Debut album being released October 26th
Paliki - Radiornot
This album owes its existence to the peninsula, named Paliki, on the Greek island of Kefalonia.
During a vacation, Naples-based multi-instrumentalist Mariano Felisio (previously Lads Who Lunch) is so struck by the unique clash of wilderness, beauty and abandonment that the island has to offer, that he starts to record nature sounds around him: cicadas and sea waves, but also, thanks to an old Grundig radio from the '70s, radio stations from all over the world, noises and voices.

The songs on the album were written after the band collectively moved to Brussels in 2016. In between periods of intense touring,

feelings of alienation and distance.

Experimental rock outfit Darto have released their new 'Fundamental Slime' EP
BRAND NEW TRACKS
Evan Jewett - Don't Feel To Work
"The best songs came together with little to no effort. I have little recollection of working on them. The bad ones take forever," says Evan Jewett.
Evan Jewett's songs never fall into the incidental traps that songwriters often knowingly or unknowingly fall into. Instead, he intentionally takes a more deliberate route that can look familiar but feels very different. This choice has less to do with aesthetic or image, and more to do with the exploration of his own character through song.
Musta Paraati - Black Parade
Finnish post-punk legends Musta Paraati will be releasing their first new album in 34 years this October through Cleopatra Records.
The 'Black Parade' LP features 11 tracks in English. 10 of these are new and 'The Leader' is a new English rendition of their song '
Johtaja', which released as a single in 1983.
Highly regarded as Finland's premiere post-punk / goth rockers, Musta Paraati was making music before their countrymen Russian Love,
Two Witches, and The 69 Eyes. With their own unique sound that is upbeat and with an old school punk attitude, their music gained
them cult status in their native Finland, their albums being considered prized contributions to record collections, and also led to
touring with other cult bands like Lords of the New Church and Hanoi Rocks.
The Chills - Snow Bound
The latest postcard from The Chills’ epic journey is an album about “consolidation, re-grouping, acceptance and mortality,”
claims the chief Chill. “Hopefully a kind of Carole King ‘Tapestry’ for ageing punks.”
Neville & Sugary Staple - Rude Rebels
‘Rude Rebels’ is full of original upbeat music with vocal statements on life, fashion, love and
morals, plus some smooth reggae vibes. It features brand new songs and recordings from
Neville Staple, legendary singer and toaster of The Specials and co-founder of Fun Boy Three, and
his partner-in-crime Sugary Staple, as well as former Specials' guitarist Roddy Radiation (a.k.a. Roddy Byers).
Orchestra Of Spheres - Mirror
Mirror, a double LP and the band's 4th release on Fire Records, is an exploration of energies and atmospheres, from intense futuristic funk and sonic tape assemblages to windswept reflections from a far flung corner of the world. It combines Orchestra of Spheres' ecstatic rhythmic power and ritualistic vocals with an expanded orchestral palette including bassoon, harp, viola, bass clarinet, soprano sax, flute and bowed ektars.
NEW EP RELEASE
Hanson Asiedu - Stages
Following a successful 2017 Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, Hanson Asiedu presents his first body of work, aptly named ‘Stages’ – the EP. ‘Stages’ is a 5 track eclectic collection, with styles ranging from the West African Highlife influenced ‘God Of Your Word’, the stripped back acoustic vibes of ‘Easy On Me’, and the soul-funk fusion heard on ‘Lessons You Learn’. Recording the EP was a collaborative effort, with contributions from Nigeria, the United States, Ghana, and the United Kingdom.
Hanson beams, ‘I am very proud of this body of work. It’s taken me a few years to get it together, so it makes it even more of an achievement for me. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve been hopeful, disappointed, even angry at times out of sheer frustration. But all is fair in love and war, and I’ve definitely faced some warfare on this journey.’
Beauty in Chaos - Finding Beauty in Chaos
‘A new project called BEAUTY IN CHAOS, which involves numerous iconic artists - Wayne Hussey (The Mission), Simon Gallup (The Cure), Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Al Jourgensen (Ministry), Pete Parada (The Offspring), DUg Pinnick (Kings X), ICE-T (Body Count), Michael Aston (Gene Loves Jezebel - Michael Aston), Michael Anthony (Van Halen) and many more.'
The Death Notes - The Black EP
Hailing from Nottingham, England, The Death Notes...
Tulipomania - Off the Map
‘Off The Map’ is a trance-like dark moody affair with bluesy elements, with Murray’s smoky
deep tenor sparingly backed by Gelover’s vocals. 'On the Outside (Spinello Remix)' is a
more upbeat offering and is dramatic, dark and dubby. It was created by
, a London-based producer and remixer, who also hosts shows on NTS
Radio, Resonance FM and New New World, in addition to working at The Wire magazine
and DJing as part of The Wire Soundsystem.'
ARTIST TO FOLLOW - Donna Zed
I've been trying to connect with Donna for the longest time, but the crazy hours she works and the time zones separating us made the task almost impossible. In a strange turn of events we managed to meet face to face at the most unlikely place, Syntagma square (Athens Greece). Finally, over a Greek ice coffee we had a brilliant talk about music, art, the future, the past, and the great weather we were having in Athens.
When meeting with an artist for the first time you usually set your expectations low so you don't disappoint yourself, sometimes this is indeed the case, however Donna over exceeded my expectations, proving to me that she is not only a very talented artist, but a person of substance as well.
Donna Zed, Singer, Composer, Musician, Photographer, Model, all these and more... My first encounter with Donna was with one of her early tracks; "Into the Dark", where the use of piano and violin with the melancholic sound of Donna's voice mix to a perfect harmony.
Donna recorded several tracks since "Into the Dark", but the one that triggered my interest was "Morphine", a track that reaches deep into your soul.
The latest track Donna released is called "My Voice", and it's exactly what one who knows Donna expects, a perfectly balanced melody complimenting the well thought-out lyrics.
Donna Zed is definitely an artist to follow, look for her tracks on all major streaming sites and right here on 829.gr

Paul LeRocq: Rock to the top"

Nova Flares - Gut Splinter
"Slow-Building. Explosive. Passionate. I imagined beautiful explosions in the sky when i was making this song…. & maybe methodical love making at some point. I wanted a gut feeling of satisfaction at the end, so that’s what I aimed for," says Jason Wagers.
Fred Abong - Homeless
“I find the process of songwriting totally mysterious. Beyond a general feeling of 'fullness' that
sometimes shows up when I have a guitar in my hand or even when I'm just walking, I couldn't
explain where the inspiration comes from, either for a song or anything else that is filed under
'art'. I do, however, get images that are then translated into words or lyrics (hopefully, the
'right' words) as well as into rhythmic melodies,” says Abong.
Dentist - Night Swimming
Formed in 2013 amidst the oceanfront urban landscape of Asbury Park, Dentist's sound
combines the freedom of the beach atmosphere and the urgency of the city into a fuzzed out,
surf punk-tinged brand of indie pop with hooks and infectious melodies to spare. Emily
Bornemann's vocals are countered by the band's sometimes aggressive, but always addictive
Nicholas Merz - The Limits Of Men
"This record has been swimming in my mind since my teen years. My mother and father were in country bands, and as much as I tried to run away from it when I was younger because it symbolized all the bigoted, sexist rednecks that I grew up with, I eventually secretly embraced it by my teen years," explains Nicholas Merz.
Searmanas - Undo
Searmanas' sound explores the role of ceremony within urban experience, resulting in severe, textured landscapes with touches of sparse vocals. Her wordless poetry ranges from industrial glitches to layered, oceanic progressions, all tied together by an aura of questioning and chaos. Her music is inspired by early Aphex Twin, Ryuichi Sakamoto, early Tori Amos, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Grouper, FKA Twigs and Fever Ray.
Poptone - Go
“It's been quite a remarkable journey so far! We as a band have been overwhelmed by our Kevin Haskins.
loyal following turning up in big numbers and celebrating all the music we have made over the
