inventing shadows is a collection of dark dramatic songs that resist the over-arranged, over-thought tendencies of modern alternative music. Favoring mood and texture, and unafraid to take their time to unfold, the songs get progressively more experimental, from the driving twisting epic "ashes in her eyes," to the ambient cinamatic collage of "fear is a knife."
The themes of inventing shadows investigate infatuations with fantasy and what it means to surrender to things that are unattainable. The lyrics are born of emotional moments more than specific situations; some are lucid and others distraught, some are innocent and others perverted. The influences range from early Cure and Joy Division to Brian Eno and "The Idiot" era Iggy Pop, but when channeled thru JT's kinetic vocals and Matt's drumming intensity, the end result is quite unique and a far cry from the tired, borrowed, new wave resurgence of the last few years.

The Atomica Project: Grayscale
Grayscale, the highly anticipated sophomore release from The Atomica Project, embodies in itself the struggle of its execution. Taking nearly 3 years to complete, Grayscale is filled with elaborate narratives of failure and recovery. Loosely based on the dramatic climate of Lauren Cheatham and Wade Alin's adopted home of Chicago, many of the tracks draw parallels between the cinematic storms of the Midwest and the turmoil of interpersonal relationships.

The debut release from Beautiful Assassins is an incredible blend of industrial, ambient and electronic mayhem.

The long-awaited solo album from Chris Randall, former frontman for Sister Machine Gun, pays homage to more traditional American music, while still maintaining the chaotic edginess that Randall is known for.

the most dangerous race: ARC
Thematically, ARC represents the basic chapters of a man's life, at least as far as it has been lived so far by it's narrator. The third EP in a four part series, ARC is the truest embodiment of theMDR's identity thus far. A dramatic blend of emotive songs, visceral live performances and late 70's influenced electronica, this ep actually attemps to trace the arc of life in a mere 6 songs.
the most dangerous race: metallic tongue
metallic tongue is a barrage of electro-ambient feedback, riding on the back of visceral driving bass, drums and electronic percussion.
