What is a new release for an author and the audience? Is it just a collection of tracks or is it a track of the new vision? Our heroes are here with their own answers. So we listen to them with full attention.

1. Embryo โ€“ Auf Auf (2021)

๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Magnificent Embryo collective offers a new journey. For the connoisseurs of the best music, it is never enough, so the collective grants our wishes. This music extends the meaning of art and absorbs the sources of the revival. Borrowing the heritage of different cultures, German artist Marja Burchard, the leader of Embryo, transforms the voices from Morocco and Afghanistan into something special, eclectic and wonderful. The team helps her un creating really great stories.

2. Blankenberge โ€“ Everything (2021)

๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ Russian indie act Blankenberge continues developing their style. Continuously searching for the new facets, the band now sound much more solid and sometimes pretty heavy. The beautiful vocals as a trait still makes the difference. One might point out that the new album “Everything” is moving more to post-rock domains. Thus dream pop has less share, particularly “pop” component, as these folks keep dreaming. So should we!

3. William Ryan Fritch โ€“ Built Upon a Fearful Void (2021)

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Another November album, ambient one this time. The universe of William Ryan Fritch is a place always interesting to explore. The latest album is no exception. Varied voices and multiple senses. Grandiose, deliberately developing and gliding from the dark into vague areas. William has a lot to share, and the more you listen to his work, the less you worry about your future experience. No one knows what is going to happen. No one knows what he is going to create next time.

4. Sei Still โ€“ El Refugio (2021)

๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Sei Still, is originally Mexican group, which has found a place in Berlin, Germany. However, their music happens to be cosmic. Literally, not depending on geography. The new opus, called “El Refugio”, continues the line which the guys has being drawing for recent years. Pretty light rock, fused and psyched, grown for you straight in pulsatile hearts. Is yours the same kind? Then don’t wait to put this live album on.

5. Landing โ€“ Monthly Subscription Series Collection 01 (2021)

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Beginning of December seems plenteous for our residents. Here are Landing from Connecticut, with the next attempt to conquer our avowal. This album was a home record, and this means it’s so soft and comfortable that you wull not resist. Adrienne’s voice perfectly makes it cloudy and upbeat. The guys are keeping pace and the result is something that causes smile and admiration, melancholic or full of excitement, it’s up to you. In any case, this work is marvellous.

6. Pharaoh Overlord โ€“ Milky Way (2021)

๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ One more live album in our collection. Finnish masters of fuzz share selected pulses, recorded live at the Netherlands. The duo accompanies us in a space journey through the Milky Way. Basically, it is the whole “5” album played live, but a kind of special version, opening alternative perspective for catchy compositions appeared a couple of years before. Now, you can decide which one you prefer (or both of them as we do).

7. The Corrupting Sea โ€“ For Simplicity’s Sake (2021)

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ The fifteen album can’t be wrong. Jason Lamoreaux, a person hiding behind this strange name, this time offers a set of pieces not evenly linked between each other. There are tracks with loud and fierce sound, while the others are quiet and calm. This contrast surprises at first, but that’s the feature of ambient as unlimited genre. The length of the compositions is shorter than it used to be. Thus you can experience minimalism in its immediacy.

8. Marcin Pajak โ€“ Sound Of The Trees (2021)

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ New work by Marcin Pajak is a collection of stories, or, maybe, pieces of one story. Told by the author in details, it touches both personal and human domains. One soul lost in the crowd, or all of us trying not to forget who we are. It’s a travel through dark side of our life, leading to the light one. But somewhere in the middle of the way you realize that there is no such a divide. The things are easier that they come, and so is Marcin’s album. Mild music with no need to overload, staying progressive and touching.

9. Karin Park โ€“ Church of Imagination (2021)

๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช Karin’s voice, which can be strong and tender in one time, does not care about any boundaries. Flying above them, it bears Nordic power and mystic energy. Minimum of music for accompaniment, plain arrangements and special atmosphere, that’s what you’ll find under the cover. Vulnerable world, exposed to human made and natural forces, alive and evolving, inviting you for a glimpse. Not only a glimpse maybe, but a long journey for those who have imagination.

10. Oddplay โ€“ Heritage (2021)

๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ The last opus in our episode comes from Varna, Bulgaria. Trio Oddplay is back with new portion of jams, grooves and sticky riffs. It’s mature psychedelic rock sound for those who survive in tough times. “Heritage” not only unveils the progress og the band, but contains material of the full range. Here you’ll hear softer and heavier songs, vibrant and outspread moments in one row. Spend some time enjoying this album with us and get prepared for the next Goosebumps Chronicles episode!
