    2003
    Marco Fiorello and the brothers Luca, Marco and Matteo Camisasca give birth to Aim. Aim’s members come from other bands of the Milan scene like On the blue, Halway, Molecricket and Scothc Woodcock.
    "Limit of sight"is out, Aim’s debut album for Inconsapevole Records.
    Nine strong and intense tracks which call in mind bands like At the drive in, Brand-New, Thursday and Funeral For A Friend.
    Aim slowly make himself recognise by its incredible live activity, in Italy and abroad, with tours in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

    2004
    Year spent between concerts, radio performances and interviews. Aim’s live activity becomes even more intense: more than one hundred gigs in only a year.

    2005
    The demo "As in memory" follows after two years the full length debut album "Limit of sight" as for an european tour in Germany in July which ends with a performance at one of the most prestigious festival of Germany, the "Freakstock".

    2006
    Year of experimentation and great changes for Aim. The singer, Luca Camisasca, leaves the band and he is replaced by the guitarist Marco Fiorello. Reharsals and research become much more frantic. After two years spent in reharsal room Aim are finally ready to record their new album.

    2007
    After having spent summer 2007 recording the new album, in November Aim will perform an european tour in countries like Germany, France, Switzerland and Czech Republic and obviously Italy as for the whole period of the year.
    Worthy of notice is Aim’s tour which will take place at the end of January 2008 in the South of Italy.

    2008
    Aim is ready to celebrate their maturity with its new album "Spirits of your tide". The album will be released on Tuesday 14th October. Worth of notice is the tour that took place by the end of January in the South of Italy and the tour in the Czech Republik that will take place in July 2008 and that will bring Aim playing on the stage of one of the most famous festival of the Czech Republik, the "Colours of Ostrava" festival. Here Aim will play as support for the well known band Gogol Bordello. Aim is touring Italy and Europe from November 2007. Since now the band has made more than sixty gigs, supporting bands like Surrounded (S) or Fighting with Wire (IRL).

    "KYMM has a firm grasp on the basic indie-pop formula - chiming guitars, slightly swoony male vocals, some keys floating around here and there. Fortunately, they’re smart enough not to limit themselves to it: Their new self-released CD, Loomings, is full of unexpected zigs and zags, like dizzy psychedelic production flourishes or the occasional chugging guitar, which implies that someone in the band has some Fugazi in their collection among all that Built to Spill. Add to that a high hooks-to-songs ratio and an assured, no-sweat performance, and you’ve got what’s easily the best rock album to come out of Geneva in a minute."

     Biography:
    Transmission is an experimental/post-rock band based in the United Kingdom. The band includes former members of Killing Joke, Murder, Inc., Verve, and Dreadzone. Formed 2005, recorded first album july 2005 at Olympic Studios London, release date ep: Noctolucent 24th july album: Beyond Light 21st august 2006 on Malicious Damage Records. When youth met simon tong they were both working together with the verve, and in between simon finishing sessions with gorillaz and blur, they sparked up a friendship and continued working together which resulted in them developing twin guitar, instrumental epic soundscapes this sound obviously needed more to it and so tim bran was invited to apply some stark metallic synths and beautiful epic pianos then in spring 2005, at a malicious damage shin-dig, youth was re-united with his old killing joke bandmate, big paul ferguson when big paul heard the demos it didn't take much to persuade him to join the project. three months later the collaborators were laying down some of the heaviest and sublime music ever recorded at the legendary olympic studios... although it took six months to write, the album was recorded in three, hot steaming days in july, and now with the help of the pioneering passion of malicious damage records the project has finally come to fruition these musicians have produced a sound and music unlike anything they've done before this is a transmission where the music flows effortlessly, where the melodies are fearless, juxtaposed and complemented with raw and primitive rhythms that are brutally executed sublime moments of timeless beauty, fragile and epic at the same time, vast dark geographies and previously uncharted maps of sound.

     Review:
    | TRANSMSSION | SUBLIMITY |
    released october 2008

    this is one amazing ride from a four-headed creative monster on heat that manages to blend musical beauty, torrential passion and sheer malevolence, sometimes in the space of one track...

    First sound on opening track Albion is Youth’s unmistakable heaving bass before Big Paul Ferguson steams in with the heaviest drums in the business. Once the original Killing Joke rhythm section is underway on a crunching post-punk funk vamp, Simon Tong’s guitar appears in shrapnel clusters lashed by Tim Bran’s unearthly synth. Musical fireworks might be expected from a line-up like this and Sublimity, the second album by Transmission, doesn’t disappoint.

    The pedigree is impeccable: Youth’s production credentials, his time with Paul in the Joke before ahead-of-its-time superfunk ensemble Brilliant. Simon’s stint in the Verve line-up which made Urban Hymns then Gorillaz and Damon Albarn and Paul Simenon’s The Good, The Bad & The Queen. Dreadzone co-founder Tim Bran plays with Subsonar and The Orb.

    The group started gestating after Youth and Simon became friends during the Urban Hymns sessions, which the former co-produced. Tim entered the fray then, Paul in Spring 2005 after he met Youth at a Malicious Damage party and heard some demos. Three months later they recorded debut album Beyond Light in three days at London’s legendary Olympic studios.

    With the line-up always busy on respective other projects it’s taken nearly two years to emerge with a follow-up but the results are a controlled explosion of disparate musical styles often reaching jawdropping peaks, like the emotional skyscraper of Triple Threat and its mix of dubbed-out effects, guitar resonance and Paul’s inimitable tribal rumble. Rarely does a band manage to blend musical beauty, torrential passion and sheer malevolence, sometimes in the space of one track, influences running riot, assimilated into the group’s mass organic psyche before being spewed out in glorious technicolour.

    For instance, cinematic Giorgio Moroder melodies on the atmospheric Dance Alone, keening psychedelia on the stately You Hold The Fire, Bo Diddley beats under the spiralling guitars of Goodbye Old Friend and Oh Sleep coming in on a classic rock guitar riff before taking off on another of the flights which seem to be this group’s trademark. On some tracks Youth adds vocals, taking Confusion in a panoramic astral rock direction with shades of Bowie while Opium Head turns into a soaring hallucino-ballad. By the mindblowing home stretch guitar-thrash of Absinthium it’s apparent that this has been one amazing ride from a four-headed creative monster on heat - a special Transmission indeed.

    大叔级团,查了团员组成才知道...都是大牌亚,也难怪...如果这是一群毛头小子作出来的,我真是又要膜拜了Orz...
    如果你觉得英文介绍多了点,呃...我也很为难,水平有限,写不出人家那种文采= =...耐心点咯...一周最佳,佐料不是很多,但很劲道...
    如果大多数人还是把PR简单地归结为Quiet-Loud-Quiet, Slow-Quick-Slow的话,我想,这个会是个不错的"反例"...觉得后摇和普通的摇滚比起来最大的不同,除了没有人声的加入意外,器乐所扮演的角色也更值得推敲...好的后摇总是那么具有画面感,细节的表达,情绪的处理,细腻而富有引领作用...或许是鼓,或许是吉他...Explosions In the Sky...
    我不知道国内有没有不同于惘闻风格的乐队,或许应该说是不同于Mono,EITS的乐队...如果新生的乐队都觉得他们已经为自己指明了一条光明之路,那么这条道路是不是有些过于拥挤?这也只是我个人的感觉,总期待有更好的想法出现...
    先思考,后实践...

    P话: Sublimity is an easy album to admire, but not the easiest to like.

     Biography:
    By now seasoned veterans of the independent music world, The Appleseed Cast is proud to announce the release of Sagarmatha, their sixth studio album and ... (more) second release with The Militia Group. The album will be available on February 17, 2009. The Appleseed Cast recorded at Mixtape Soundlab and Toy Shop, with their own Christopher Crisci engineering, and later re-grouped with Ed Rose at Black Lodge Recording in Lawrence, KS for instrumental overdubs and mixing. The record leads The Appleseed Cast to the peak of their musical ability, into experimental post-rock, and often purely instrumental territory. Shortly before release, The Appleseed Cast will embark on a US tour, kicking off the festivities at Opolis in Norman, OK on February 4th.

    The Appleseed Cast began their musical career in 1997 in Southern California before signing to Deep Elm Records and relocating to Lawrence, KS the following year. With the release of The End of The Ring Wars on Deep Elm Records, The Appleseed Cast began their ascent to their current rank as well-respected musicians and trendsetters among their genre. They’ve since released Mare Vitalis (Deep Elm, 2000); Low Level Owls Vols. 1 & 2 (Deep Elm, 2001); Lost Songs (Deep Elm, 2002); Two Conversations (Tiger Style, 2003); and Peregrine (The Militia Group, 2006).

The dates are not set yet but we are currently planning this great event with the people from Kolleqt Bookings and Forever Presents Ltd. (IRE/UK).

    Sadly, Jonatan cannot proceed touring with us but our good friend David Lillberg will join the band from now on. David plays keys, guitar, laptop and vocals and we really look forward to bring him with us. Jonatan will still figure as a very important musician/producer and good friend of the band.

    Love and joy,
    IMMANU EL  


    If you barely know them:

    IMMANU EL is a young Swedish band with a unique sound - Dynamic guitar and keyboard soundscapes, captive singing and with somewhat of a moving Nordic mood. The music is focused at varying dynamics and a wide spectrum of harmonic expressions and sounds that can move between presence and ambience. Originally the band was inspired by early post rock and experimental bands and sounds, which combined with pop influences made IE to create a sound of their own based on atmospheric soundscapes that became their fundament for their debut album.

    The core in the IE sound has ever since the first songs were written in their mid teens been to create something heartrendingly beautiful and moving, but the performance to create it has changed. As the band members have grown older and turned from teens into young men, the music as well has got a lot more mature and even more specifically unique. The core of beauty is still there, but what we can hear from today’s IMMANU EL is a rock band with confidence, profession and quality in their own sound. Atmospheric surroundings has yielded for a more down to earth, present and forcing kind of music, and the result is something rarely seen or heard before – a sound more touching and beautiful than in the rock quarters, but with more attitude and presence than in the soundscapes of post rock.

    IMMANU EL started out in 2003 as a musical experiment by 16 year old Claes Strängberg that was joined by his twin brother Per. The old friends Michael Persson and Emil Karlsson also joined the Strängberg twins, and the following year they started to create atmospheric pop music influenced by post rock in an old barn outside the town of Jönköping on the Swedish countryside – while still studying in high school. The following demo records sold out and the word about IMMANU EL started to spread. Getting more and more popular, the band got the chance to play some shows all over Sweden by supporting established acts like Logh and Loney, Dear. After a visit in Iceland and some publicity in media everything went on pretty fast. IE got the opportunity to be a part of the Hultsfred Rookie festival 2005, the biggest stage for unsigned bands in Sweden. This show became something of a break through for the young lads, and their second demo release, “Killerwhale EP” were sold out and spread all over the world. After finishing high school the band got signed by And The Sound Records and the debut album “they’ll come, they come” was released the following year, distributed in Europe, Asia, USA and digitally worldwide through iTunes. The debut album as well as their live appearances on tour received glorious reviews from all over the world, one example is the biggest Swedish Newspaper METRO that wrote about the band as:

    "One of the biggest Swedish pop-hopes right now”

    In 2008 IMMANU EL started to tour across Europe, and will continue to do so a lot the upcoming year. The band’s highly expected second album will be recorded in the summer of 2009.

    reviews & lyrics are published in the blog.

    "program music I", released approximately a year and a half ago introduced audiences to a musical interpretation of two Japanese literary classics, “Night on the Milky Way Railroad” and “Run Melos!” and revealed the rich musical talent of kashiwa daisuke. As we enter the final one digit year of the new millennium, we are proud to release “5 Dec.”, an album that drops hints of what’s to come in the next 10 years.

    kashiwa’s first album released from German label, onpa, in 2006 won rave reviews from many artists including Ryuichi Sakamoto. In his second album, “program music I” released the following year, kashiwa daisuke defined his presence once again in the world of music. The artist’s lyrical melody and dynamic and inventive musical arrangements have led his work to new frontiers in TV commercials and fashion shows. kashiwa casts also off a powerful presence on the online world through his musical + visual collaboration with Koji Nishida of RAKU-GAKU, the artist behind kashiwa’s album jackets.

    In his third album, “5 Dec.”, kashiwa daisuke makes yet another step into a new horizon. In this album, the artist’s signature melody with its flowing, oriental taste hides behind the shadows to be replaced by tearing voice samples and noisy and metallic guitar sounds thrashing almost violently on top of colorful uplifting beats such as break core, down tempo, bleep techno, and drum n’ bass. In contrast to the aggressive sounds of the first half, the second part of the album starting with the 6th track, “Silver Moon” guides audiences to a minimal world created through electronic sounds and the piano. As a whole, the album portrays a brilliant contrast of sound.

    The melody of this album does not impose sentimentalism or nostalgia onto its listeners but rather, it takes them on a journey into rhythm from beginning to end. Even amidst the violent and excessive elements, there is always a composed eye seeing into the passion that lies beneath, there is a self-disciplined, strict interpretation of the world, a sublime and metallic texture… this is what the artist kashiwa daisuke may be all about. Turn your ears and experience the fruit of kashiwa daisuke’s new challenge and step with him into a whole new level of musical originality.

     Our Ceasing Voice - As The Horizon's On Fire

    新年伊始就佳作不断真是一件让人很愉悦的事情...也不免对接下来的o9年满是憧憬...
    乐队这头放出免费下载,那头给出实体专辑的购买链接,不可谓对其作品的充分自信,EP的质量也证明了这一点...风格方面比较偏暗,很合乎最近的口味...
    呃...发觉自己开始逐渐走向两个极端,要么就欢喜"大",专辑做的越复杂越好,气势越磅礴越好,恨不得把整个管弦乐队统统搬上来...要么就很"小",简单清甜,绝不冗长,点到即止...而对那些介于两者之间却又没啥特色的中庸团体...很容易就会失去耐心...
