10AFTER10 – WATER BLINKS

We’re often shy or scared of our human impulses, which, when controlled, are what make us human and unique. In order to expose such human dimensions, the story of Impulses demonstrates the daily life of a boxer training herself, and a ballerina doing the same thing. There’s elegance in power, and there’s power in elegance.

“I liked the idea that we see two women who decided to take their passions and impulses to bring those into something greater than themselves, making it so beautiful and inspiring.” -10after10

There are many similarities between those two disciplines even though they’re far off from one another, which brings you to a fascinating level of personal reflection throughout such worlds. Discipline being at the epicentre, as this is not just a hobby or even a lifestyle, but you become one with such a way of living. The discipline decides what needs to be done.

HOPEFUL TRAGEDY RECORDS ACCUEILLE TOTAL GIPSY

Lancé aujourd’hui, le 15 novembre 2019, Total Gipsy nous offre, avec son premier album appelé “Digital & Anologue”, un recueil de conseils pour devenir adulte.

Ayant toujours mis de l’avant le côté perdu de l’adolescence, surtout dans l’ère actuelle, avec un titre comme “Digital & Analogue”, elle voulait que son album incarne la croisée des chemins entre un passé clair et un futur incertain et les défauts de ce monde.

“J’imagine déjà les gens dire: “On ne dit pas ‘digital’, on dit ‘numérique'”. On a tellement de difficulté à se trouver une identité et finalement, on se prend la tête avec la langue, alors que c’est peut-être notre perspective qui n’est pas la bonne. J’invite les gens à penser autrement, peut-être que le titre de mon album n’est pas seulement en français.

Ceux qui écouteront l’album jusqu’à la fin comprendront que les enjeux sont beaucoup plus grands. Let’s fight the good fight.” – Total Gipsy

New Videoclip for the Song “Black” by Leeman

“[…] The song “Black” is my way of bringing my own color to those journeys, it’s my way to give back, somehow.” – Leeman

Out today, this video is a personal journey covering so many basic life questions around purpose. Leeman’s idea is to demonstrate how purpose is everything if you want to live life to the fullest, not only enjoy its vices or dark sides, but to simply abandon yourself to it, as long as you’re fulfilling it, without comparing yourself with others but only with yourself.

Leeman became closer to the Tibetan monks culture of Montreal and brings us into this unique colorful world throughout prayers, meditations and moments of deep thoughts, which became his new lifestyle.

“The idea is to demonstrate how much depth there can be within love, hope, pain, sadness and joy, and also how all of those are shaping us as we’re walking into this purposeful path of ours. It also shows how impactful those feelings are when we’re simply walking into life without purpose.” – Leeman

Koko et ses Machines lance “Albert S’est Envolé, Mais il ne Reviendra pas”

Le premier album de “Koko et ses Machines”, nommé “Albert S’est Envolé, Mais il ne Reviendra pas”, est la réelle et limpide analogie de la vie de Koko jusqu’ici.

L’album offre un son électro-atmosphérique-tordu avec des arrangements à la limite du dérangement provenant de ses inspirations de la musique Krautrock, aussi appelé Rock Cosmique, des groupes expérimentaux tels que Faust, CAN et NEU!, avec l’ajout des textes poétiques provenant de moments marquants de l’histoire de l’évolution de la science.

Leeman’s “Prayer Flags” reviewed by Jano Lapin

The use of airy female vocals sprinkled on many tracks are almost new-age like (think Evermind-era Amethystium) and bring a whole new dimension to the music. There’s something hypnotic to it that makes you want to close your eyes and get drawn to the music.

As you get through the record, bass-driven darker vibes take over on song White and culminates with Black, a track that uses industrial siren sound and distorted vocals. How did we get here again?!?

Like the wind passing over the surface of the prayer flags, let the music of Leeman flow through your ears in order to purify and sanctify your mind!

Must. Listen. To.: Red, Black, Green.
