Des Turner : Take One [ROR046]

“ROR is very happy to release the debut album of Singer/Songwriter, Des Turner.

Label owner Owen Ni, and Des have known each other for a very long time. But only last year did they decide to collaborate on a song together. The collab was so organic that Owen decided to offer Des with an opportunity to record a full album of her own at ROR HQ (aka NI LAB).

And that was how Take One came to be.

[Disclaimer: Lo-Fi album = Lo-Fi recording, so keep in mind this while listening to the music.. Also, lots of fun was had during this 6 hour recording session, so some jokes found their way into songs. Enjoy.]”

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.”
