    LITE

    Japanese Rock

    Japanese instrumental quartet LITE return with their third full-length release “Illuminate” on August 16th. The album was recorded during two sessions – five tracks recorded and mixed by John McEntire of Tortoise at Soma Electronic Music Studios in Chicago and a further three tracks done with J Robbins (Jawbox) at Magpie Cage in Baltimore.

    “Illuminate” signals a change in direction for the band with the addition of synths and myriad percussion instruments placing an emphasis on texture and rhythm while remaining faithful to the pillars of LITE’s trademark dual-guitar sound: precision, power and unforgettable hooks. Nowhere is this more exemplified than on the stop-start futuristic rock of “Image Game” or the swirling soundscapes heard on “100 Million Rainbows”.

    Formed in Tokyo in 2003, the band – Nobuyuki Takeda (guitar), Kozo Kusumoto (guitar), Jun Izawa (bass), Akinori Yamamoto (drums) – are cited as an influence by a new wave of young instrumental bands around the world. Extensive touring since their formation has won them fans in Europe, the US and beyond thanks to their intense, incendiary live performances and a steady stream of EPs and albums has firmly established them as one of the most exciting bands to have emerged from Japan in the last decade.

    The band have most recently toured the US twice with Mike Watt & The Missingmen and will appear at Fuji Rock Festival in Japan for the second time following their first Asian tour and will soon return to European shores.

  • The End Of The Ocean

    The End Of The Ocean

    Post-Rock/Experimental

    The End Of The Ocean is an instrumental post-rock band from Columbus, Ohio. From their start in early 2009, The End Of The Ocean has had a penchant for crafting soundtrack-esque athems that move freely from beautiful to trippy to heart-tugging to fist clenching. Heavily influenced by mid 90′s emo and shoegaze (My Bloody Valentine, Mineral, The Appleseed Cast, American Football, Planes Mistaken for Stars), and their post-rock contemporaries (Mono, Envy, Explosions In The Sky), The End Of The Ocean utilizes intricate drumming, subtle guitar arpeggios, and a vast range of effects to craft beautiful, nostalgic and refreshingly unique memorable songs.

    The End Of The Ocean has continually expanded its horizons from playing local shows to touring all across the United States. They’ve been fortunate enough to share the stage with Alcest, If These Trees Could Talk, Pianos Become The Teeth, Touche Amore, Code Orange Kids, Mouth of The Architect, Title Fight, Defeater, O’Brother, Junius and The Ascent Of Everest.

    The End Of The Ocean self-released their first album, a 4 song EP entitled Calm Seas Don’t Make Sailors, on October 1st, 2009. The album was unexpectedly downloaded over 2,000 times in the first week of its release and received stellar praise from many reviews both in the US and abroad.

    The band’s second album, Pacific-Atlantic, was released by Futurerecordings (Indian Summer, The Ascent Of Everest, Sunlight Ascending) on March 1st, 2011 and made tidal waves in the post-rock community. Pacific·Atlantic was included in the prestigious list of top 100 albums of 2011 by The Silent Ballet, voted into the top 20 releases of 2011 by Post-Rock Listeners Choice, and chosen as the #6 best album of 2011 by the internet radio show Progopolis.

    On June 29th, 2012, The End Of The Ocean released their third album, In Excelsis (Futurerecordings), and embarked on a five week cross-country tour in support of the album.

    With three albums and multiple tours under their belt, The End Of The Ocean is currently writing new material and preparing for an even more extensive touring schedule in 2013.

    With a wall of sound and an aggressive live show, listeners can’t help to be caught up in the band’s maelstrom of nostalgia, hope, beauty, melancholy, chaos and tranquility. It’s how The End Of The Ocean creates this ebb and flow of emotions that makes this band a monumental experience.

  • Vasudeva

    Vasudeva

    Indie Rock

    Vasudeva is an instrumental rock band from New Jersey. Formed out of a lasting high school friendship, the tight-knit trio creates seemingly effortless, beautifully dynamic soundscapes, locked in by a firm backdrop of unrelenting grooves, while drawing on their post-rock, ambient, lo-fi, and electronic forms all in equal measure.

    Written from late 2014 to late 2015 after returning home from their first European tour, the band’s second full-length album, No Clearance, is the product of countless hours of listening, observing, tweaking, and evolving, honing in an impressive spread of recording techniques and production styles, while redefining genres in the process.

    Self-recorded with an array of colors in their sonic palette, effect pedals, tape players, samplers, drum machines, and a Rhodes piano were just a few of the components used in the making of No Clearance (mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden), capturing Vasudeva at their rawest, yet most refined form to date.

    The band’s name, coined from the character in Hermann Hesse’s 1922 novel, Siddhartha, was chosen for his quiet, yet profound and eye-opening role in the story, similar to the band’s own deliberate pace and strong musical dynamic. Now, with the release of No Clearance and a year full of touring ahead, the band certainly has something worth hearing.
