DEAD HEART BLOOM: State of Mind (EP)
Dead Heart Bloom’s “State of Mind” recent single “Lost In A Dream” with 3 brand new tracks that explore broken hearts, future dreams and the interior spaces of time and place. Musically shifting between guitar effect-laden bursts, merciful piano ballads and subtle electronic psychedelics, the EP places the band firmly, as one reviewer maintains, “between the Beatles and ‘The Bends’”.
DEAD HEART BLOOM: Got Time
A track in a series of singles released in 2016, this track was written and recorded largely in the Dead Heart Bloom space in Brooklyn, NY, with additional recording at Saltland Studio in Brooklyn.
TIGER MOUNTAIN: White Nights
Tiger Mountain continues to explore lush electronic and moody aural environments. Following on from debut EP “Celestial Machines” and the aptly named compilation “Sound Tracks”, “White Nights” combines angular sequences with pulsing beats and a haunting vocal, courtesy of Boris Skalsky. The track’s ‘non-chorus’ breaks with reverb heavy guitars and pianos that show a brief ray of light before bringing the listener back in the darker reaches of an urban electronic soundscape.
BORIS SKALSKY: Forever and a Day
Forever and a Day is a five song acoustic record written and conceived as a duet between Boris Skalsky and New York based singer-songwriter Joy Dragland. Exploring themes of love and loss, the songs were written, recorded and produced in New York City.
DEAD HEART BLOOM: Lost In A Dream
Dead Heart Bloom’s core members Boris Skalsky and Paul Wood have long been known for their particular brand of ‘ambient’ rock. They open 2018 with “Lost In A Dream”, brandishing their signature guitar-heavy textures over a propelling rhythm section and vocals that effortlessly weave throughout the mix. Fans of Bends-era Radiohead, early ‘90s Mary Chain or any number of melodic, noisy guitar bands will take comfort.
TIGER MOUNTAIN: Sound Tracks
In 2016 Tiger Mountain scored the music for a solo exhibition titled Moving/Still by New York based photographer and visual artist Michelle Repiso. The film, and the music that Tiger Mountain created to accompany it, are dream-like and ambiguous, like a distant memory. The work was first exhibited in New York City in April 2016 with Tiger Mountain providing live accompaniment. This EP features four pieces from the score.
BOB OXBLOOD: Young Love
rooklyn-based singer/songwriter Bob Oxblood combines classical finger picking with synthetic textures and melancholic, longing vocals. Having spent earlier years providing electric tones with Orange County power pop outfits Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate as well as crossing the US as a touring guitarist with the likes of John Legend, Oxblood has been crafting his solo work in studios and on stages in New York and Los Angeles for the past few years.
DEAD HEART BLOOM: Gather Up
Dead Heart Bloom returns with a spiraling riff-heavy psychedelic track with a "great big glam rock stomp on it" and "guitars in many different colors." Featured in the CBS show "Criminal Minds".
