Dralms is the latest project by Christopher Smith, featuring long time collaborators Shaunn Thomas Watt (Siskiyou), Will Kendrick (Failing) and Peter Carruthers (Siskiyou). With Dralms, Smith departs from his minimal and subdued musical constructions of hisprevious solo album’s to a much more complex and heavier sound. Still led by the cloud-soft vocals of Smith the group veers off into cyclical dub rhythms on “Divisions Of Labour” while the spacey “Crushed Pleats” mixes OK Computer era Radiohead, rising post-rock arrangements and glitched-out electronic tones.
“Dralms spits and curses below the sweet top layer. Below, in the miserable underbelly, sits something built to explode under the weight of its own industrial misery.” – Portals Music
Mu (Francesca Belcourt and Brittney Rand) embraces the cutting wavelengths of electronica, enveloped in the comfort and softness of organic sounds. They tactfully marry evocative storytelling, electronic instrumentation, and experimental production with a dreamy and ethereal pop overtone. Their unique and exotic sound draws on the emotions and experiences of twenty-somethings in a jaded, yet still hopeful world.
