Team Callahan: Point Doom

Tue, 10/13/2015 - 12:00

Team CallahanDenver based husband/wife duo Team Callahan hail from St. Petersburg, Florida but made the jump to Colorado after finishing their first effort, Afterglow in late August. The superb full length album was a year in the making, with the team putting together their music in quick bursts between classes and work during their first year of marriage.

Lyrically the band states that Afterglow encapsulates their relationship, college, career pressure, generational failings, that dingy first apartment, grownup problems about money and insurance, isolation, fear, and hope.

Point Doom is the striking first track from the thirteen track album, a perfect sun kissed theme for the overflow of continued Summer months here in LA.

Inchange: Winter

Sun, 10/11/2015 - 12:00

InchangeFounded in 2013, Inchange is an electronic producer from Vladimir Russia who has several other releases under his belt available through Bandcamp.

Winter comes via the release “Found Records”, an inspired track issued through Cult Classic Records. We found the following description by Annette Bizz that best describes the stellar effort:

“Just stop for a moment. Free your mind of everyday monotonous thoughts, focus your attention only on the music. The album “Found Records”, consists of seven tracks, or in other words, seven stories. It’s hardly possible to ignore images that appear before your eyes, while listening to such things. The music fills you, it creates incredible atmosphere, it’s melancholic and cold, but it doesn’t push you away. It doesn’t feel false or insincere. Every record is so real and true, close to life and relevant, for each of us, at any moment. This music gives you shivers and food for thought. It’s all about us – our deep feelings mixed with pleasant moments, our disappointment and efforts to fix everything.

It’s about life too – faces of random strangers, preoccupied with their thoughts , gray buildings , asphalt, cars and buses passing by, rooftops, rainy sky, city noises and casual conversations. There are so many people around, but at the same time you are alone. This album could be called audio diaries, very personal, meant to be listened to rarely. It is full of profound quotes and unbearable anguish. Moments of our routine life are slipping away like a film frame and everyone only has time to see only their own.

What do YOU see?”
