The Synthetic Dream Foundation - In The Realms Of The Unreal

The Synthetic Dream Foundation - In The Realms Of The Unreal

Dig into this contemporary classic work, it is dripping with atmosphere and creativity.  The Synthetic Dream Foundation has created a very visual piece with this number. Hearing the composition, I was left feeling I had missed a movie this should accompany and realized the movie had been inside my mind as this played. Awesome song from Mythical Records. Check it out!

When Punk Rock emerged on the scene, it was an exhilarating rush of adrenaline and wonderment as this bundle of energized tunes came flooding from many directions all united in some strange way that ushered in the feeling of freshness and creativity.

Polaris Rose "Set Me On Fire"

Polaris Rose "Set Me On Fire", hey that's the title to this post and it refers to this great Indie Rock band I have been listening to over at (A great place to find undiscovered masterpieces like this one.)

Polaris Rose is the band and they may be new to me but from the first few notes with this song, "Set Me On Fire", that's just what they did, set me ablaze with great rockin' grooves. Their production as an indie band is spot on. The musicians in this group know how to rock and they bring it, great vocals along with awesome guitars always hooks me. And hey I'm hooked. I enjoyed this I know you will too, so check 'em out.....

Rasplyn's "Scenes Through the Magic Eye"

I always enjoy finding a creation that stands apart from the usual. Carolyn O'Neill's debut release, Rasplyn's "Scenes Through the Magic Eye" is one such step into the creative ether. 

Both haunting and atmospheric this piece and the album as a whole paint very vivid and atmospheric soundscapes. The music in this lends itself to soundtracks for movies, stage, gaming and just chilling to a stream of sound that takes you on a journey across the backlot of your mind. 

I found a little info on O' Neill's project, knowing that once you hear this your curiosity will be raised and the info you seek is here at hand for your convenience:

Rasplyn's "Scenes Through the Magic Eye" is Carolyn O'Neill's debut release on the experimental music label, Mythical Records. 
Rasplyn is the solo project of Carolyn O’Neill who uses her experience with classical composition and film to create mystical and visual landscapes with her music. Carolyn is a Chicago native who grew up playing the clarinet and organ. After playing in her high school orchestra for four years she went on to receive her degree in Music Composition from Columbia College Chicago. Her music is dark, but beautiful and filled with textured layers influenced by world culture and fantasy. Her style is transforming as she experiments with adding vocal elements into the environments she creates. Her debut album "Scenes Through the Magic Eye" is due to be released on Mythical Records on November 30th, 2014.

Fleetwood Mac "The Chain" (Structure Remix)

I was fortunate enough to have one of artist, Structure's new Fleetwood Mac remix of their classix tune, The Chain. Just running the concept of that through my mind before hearing it had me curious. Rumours is one of my favorite albums, The Chain one of my favorite songs, not one I've heard covered with much variation over the years. I was soon jarred into a different direction though upon streaming this vibrant remix of a '70s classic. All those decades ago I would have never imagined this take on the tune but Structure has moved this rock classic into the 21st century with this timely remix of the recently reunited Fleetwood Mac. Check out this creative spin and see for yourself
