NEW – Ableton / Music Production Lessons in RI or Southern MA Area

Hello fellow Bandcamp lovers! I wanted to do some quick self promotion and let you know that I’m now offering one-on-one lessons in Ableton Live – the digital audio workstation. Many of you guys know I make my own music under the name Ark Arsenal. I recently decided it would be great fun to spread the knowledge...
Top Ten of Twenty Fourteen

Top Ten of Twenty Fourteen

What up homies.  Here’s a list of my top ten records (bandcamp style if I can find a link).  I’m a bit late to the party here, but I think there were a ton of gems to be found in the music world last year and these, in particular, should be celebrated.  Not many words...
yesper - senses sensei

yesper – senses sensei

senses sensei by yesper Yeah, so, where to begin on this one? yesper’s most recent EP is possibly one of the most sincere albums since, well, his last EP. senses sensei plods along with the deliberate, plodding pace that I’ve come to recognize as his and his alone. The way Stephen’s vocals blend with his own brand...
Cataldo - Guilded Oldies

Cataldo – Guilded Oldies

So… hello there.  I know I know. It’s been awhile (sung in the key of Staind). I was convinced by someone you’re all aware of to get me to get off my rump and post again.  The first time in 1.5+ years.  Eeep.  How to approach this?  Will I mess it up?  Can my re-entry...

Rachel Brotman – Anecdote

Improvisational jazz doesn’t usually sit well with me. Its unpredictability and lack of concrete structure stands counter to my subconsciously rigid definitions what music should sound like. Of course, inferring something as shortsightedly idiotic as the idea that great music should sound like anything is grounds for being burned at the stake, so I apologize for...
Ten Million Sounds - Finding Time

Ten Million Sounds – Finding Time

We’ve been featuring fewer and fewer electronic-based trip hop artists on BB lately, a fact that I’m confounded by. I don’t know if I’ve set the bar a bit too high, or if the genre simply doesn’t interest me as much as it used to. I’ve been reluctant to give a good hard listen to even Emancipator’s...
Shakey Graves - Donor Blues

Shakey Graves – Donor Blues

Shakey Graves blazed onto the scene pretty quickly. While which scene he blazed onto remains up for interpretation, his presence online and in his hometown of Austin has made him into an “indie/folk hero” of sorts. But what draws me to his music is the exact opposite of what I spoke of in our most...
Stellar Young - Everything At Once

Stellar Young – Everything At Once

Snappy, high-fidelity albums play just as important of a role in my ever-expanding music library as any intentionally lo-fi, bedroom-recorded material. Understanding the idea that there can be room for is both is difficult for some to grasp, including my stubborn self for quite some time. Overall though, nothing really compares to blasting a well-engineered...
yesper - cannibal king

yesper – cannibal king

I’ll just get this out of the way now: I’m a sucker for subtle, unassuming indie-folk. Simplicity is an understated treasure in today’s complex indie music landscape, and its spoils are only available for those who make themselves aware of it. In my experience, getting into an album without much more than a guy and his...
