Wired to Earth - Tin Spirits

Wired to Earth
Wired To Earth is the stunning debut album from Swindon Prog rockers Tin Spirits, featuring former XTC guitarist Dave Gregory.

Released "Grounded in prog’s 70s stylings but a nod to darker climes.” on the band’s own VIBROLA label, the album is marketed by Esoteric Recordings’ new front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. Fans of Dave Gregory, (one of the most original and inventive guitarists the UK has ever produced), will find him in scintillating form on this new release. The album comprises four original compositions, along with a cover of the Genesis classic 'Back in NYC', a heavy hint as to some of the influences at work here. With its complex arrangements, ambitious scale and outstanding musicianship, Wired To Earth channels the spirit of 1970s Progressive rock, yet it remains firmly anchored to the present by strong melodies and irresistible hooks. This is Progressive Rock with impeccable pop sensibilities, and it provides a fittingly rich and varied backdrop for Dave Gregory's superb guitar work. His trademark blend of psychedelic '60s jangle, '70s rock riffing and new wave angularity has never sounded more compelling or vital. However, the band is far from a mere star vehicle for the ex-XTC man. With song-writing duties split four ways, this quartet is about four musicians brought together purely by their love of making music.

The band was formed in 2008, when guitarist Daniel Steinhardt invited his friend and musical hero Dave Gregory to come and jam with The Hi-Fidels, a Swindon-based trio made up of Steinhardt, bassist/vocalist Mark Kilminster and drummer Doug Mussard. An instant connection was made, and what began as four people getting together to play covers for their own enjoyment was clearly destined for greater things. Two and a half years on, fresh from supporting Marillion in front of 3,000 people at the Marillion Weekend 2011 festival in Port Zélande, Netherlands, Tin Spirits have delivered one of the most exciting Progressive Rock releases of the year so far.

The Weight Of The World CD/DVD Edition
SPECIAL CD / DVD LIMITED EDITION OF THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM POST-PROGRESSIVE OUTFIT SANGUINE HUM.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio album by Sanguine Hum. "The Weight of the World” sees Sanguine Hum expand their musical horizons on all fronts with a seven-track collection of diverse compositions - technically challenging and exciting yet always melodic and direct. Songs such as "From the Ground Up” and "System for Solution” pursue the Porcupine Tree meets Radiohead approach of the debut record "Diving Bell” with powerful yet intricate riffs propelling the songwriting that continues to make ever more inventive use of surprising twists and turns in the arrangement.
Surprises are to be found as well in the instrumentation as the band open up the sound and more explicitly reference a love of electronica and the music of artists such as Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin, best heard in the song "Day of Release” as synthetic percussion and rumbling synths give way to chiming acoustic guitar and a soaring vocal melody. Perhaps even more exciting for a band that perhaps held some of their Prog influences in check on their debut album, is the 15-minute title track that manages the task of combining effective and emotional songwriting with thrilling musical developments that push the band to the limit. "The Weight of the World” breaks new ground for a band at the forefront of truly "progressive” music.
This special limited edition set Sanguine Hum’s new album also includes a DVD (Region Free / NTSC), "The Making of ‘The Weight of the World’” which follows Sanguine Hum as they prepare the ambitious follow-up to their acclaimed debut album, "Diving Bell”. Filmed on location at Oxford's Evolution studios, this fascinating and revealing film delves into the complex processes that lay behind the construction of the band’s challenging music. The documentary also captures Sanguine Hum's first recording session with new drummer Andrew Booker (from No Man). For fans of the band, this DVD is an essential glimpse into the world of modern progressive music making.

Sontaag
•    STUNNING NEW ALBUM IN THE FINEST TRADITIONS OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK & SPACE ROCK
•    CO PRODUCED BY YOUTH (KILLING JOKE, THE FIREMAN)
•    ILLUSTRATED BOOKLET WITH NEW ESSAY

Stunning new album in finest tradition of progressive rock and space rock  

Pucker up and kiss… the apocalypse.   In the grand tradition of high concept progressive rock comes an epic cross-media hybrid where cerebral science fiction meets visceral rock ‘n’ roll. Sontaag’s eponymous debut album has been described as ‘the space opera that Pink Floyd never wrote’, ‘a modern-day Tubular Bells’, ‘a prog-rock War Of The Worlds’, but no reference point or sound-bite nails its seamless combination of space rock, narrative spoken word, and evocative post-Orb ambience quite as neatly as ‘sonic cinema’.

Recorded in New York City and London, co-produced and mixed by Youth (Killing Joke, The Fireman) for Big Life Management, ‘Sontaag’ is a stunning and immersive listening experience. An evolutionary progression combining cutting edge sounds with classic dynamics, adapting the rock experience for today’s digital environment. Arriving in a landscape where music, books and movies often co-exist on a single handheld device, ‘Sontaag’ represents a seamless fusion of the finest elements of all three.  

Sontaag's central sci-fi concept unfolds in a distant galaxy…  

The Ancients, through a long process of trial and error, had discovered the secret of synthesizing essential energy from harmonic sound, giving them the power to reanimate extinct planets by utilising giant orbiting sonic generators. But life came at a price. The newly supplanted inhabitants of MP-5 were compelled to provide the musical fuel for The Great Harmodulator simply to stay alive.

Sontaag features Richard Sontaag (composition, instruments, concept, co-production) and Ian Fortnam (story, lyrics, voice, concept).
