Nic Bommarito : A Quiet Age [BSOG0045]

“It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six years since the release of Nic Bommarito’s great full-length album, ‘Harp Fragments’. When Nic contacted me about releasing a new album at blocSonic, I had only recently visited his website to see if he had released anything new, only to be disappointed. So, suffice it to say that his desire to release new music at blocSonic was a terrific surprise to me. There are a few artists in the Creative Commons community who never let you down when they release something. For me, Nic is one of them.

Today, it’s a thrill for me to be able to bring you the new album! A Quiet Age is a collection of eight gorgeous tracks that builds on and refines the Bommarito sound that fans have come to know and love. Download it… turn it on and chill.”

Plusplus : Psycho [LBN026]

Psycho is the third and final installment in the ‘Evils trilogy’ from Adam Radmall aka Plusplus consisting of eight new tracks that continue on a similar theme to the two previously acclaimed albums ‘Evils’ (2010) and ‘Game Over’ (2012). Compared with the first two Plusplus albums, Psycho is more a collaboration with Bryan Styles (Plantman) and Rob Scillitoe contributing on drums and double bass respectively. Producer John Hannon also contributed significantly. The result is much more of an organic sound that reveals another side of the plusplus yet retains a similar mix of brooding atmospheres and circadian rhythms punctuated by playful folk melodies evident on previous work.”

Nick Rivera : Zamalek [LBN023]

Zamalek is an island in Cairo in the middle of the Nile. But also a neighbourhood, something in between. This album is about the sky you can’t see from this island and the things that swim in it. Zamalek is a warm cuddle from your trusted friend, a fist in the nape from your best enemy.”
