Beyond Boundaries is a 10-track playlist aiming to feature 10 “out-of-the-box”, outstanding gems! Not exactly unclassified, but certainly unique and uncommon.
“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis
(african, world music, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: A sonic bridge between Italy and Africa that transcends borders
between the two continents.
(synthwave, post rock, kraut)
Quick pitch: From the fat analog synth bass, pounding percussion, and krautrock structure… An out of this world, stunning diversity…
Vegetarians & Carnivores
(psychedelic rock, freak folk, “cabaret music”)
Quick pitch: A song all about childhood fevers and delirium, and other hallucinogenic experiences with nods to Syd Barrett, The Beatles and Danny Elfman.
(feat. John Roseboro)
(ambient, folk, experimental)
Quick pitch: The first single from VAAAL’s upcoming experimental ambient folk pop-EP… Highly atmospheric and one of a kind!
Andreij Rublev & Næringssorg
(neofolk, post rock, experimental)
Quick pitch: Improvised guitars, no input mixers, synths and drum machine evoke images of a heavy machine moving slowly through a desert. Ideal for sound explorers!
(no wave, noise rock)
Quick pitch: A blend of absurd no wave & noise rock with some thunderous drumming… Mind-blooooowing!
(breakbeat, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: An intense, experimental take on breakbeat, that even Aphex Twin and Knifehandchop would be proud of….
(blues, jazz rock, “freak out”)
Quick pitch: A Beefheart/Tom Waits style jazz banger written by Vancouver BC’s eccentric Spank Williams
Quick pitch: A mad as a March hare chiptune with a fun dance party vibe, inspired by the sound design used on the Super Nintendo.
(synthwave, “spaghetti western”, twang)
Quick pitch: An instrumental inspired equally by Spaghetti Western styled twang and early synth pop.
