Bandcamp Recommendations 05/05/2011
It’s the first Thursday of May. It’s almost a full year of me doing these Bandcamp Recommendations. This is probably my favorite part of the whole blog. I get to discover some good, no, great free music and share it with you. The musicians in all thee posts put in their hard time and effort (not to mention hard earned money) into bringing you these tunes. Make sure you show them your apprectiation and donate what you can. Buy some past material, t-shirts, concert tickets or help spread the word on your own social network pages.
The first band is quite unique. The band is called Colornoise and this is their album Fake Apocalypse. Colornoise is a 2 piece all female band from Costa Rica. They play a mix of stoner rock, grunge, garage rock and punk. It sounds amazingly good and refreshing from the everyday norm.
Last year The Heliotropes came out of no where with a fine psychedelic rock album. No they have their Ribbons 7″ up for free download to add to the collection. If you haven’t had a chance to hear them, check them out. If you like the 7″, their full length is also up for download.
No here’s some great sounding, 70′s influenced psychedelic blues instrumental rock. The band is called The Re-Stoned. This is their album Vermal which appears to be a live recording. The band hails from Moscow. It’s fuzzy too at times. Give it a “holla.”
Last up is some more instrumental music. This time by a band called Slow Ride Home. This is their album The Great Southern Supercluster. The album was released September last year. The album is long, there are only 4 tracks but the shortest track is 6:27 long.
Last is a hard rock band called Poney. This is their album Seamyth. Seamyth is an epic progressive hardcore punk companion to Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.”
