Manifest Destiny, the film

Manifest Destiny was a labor of love. Or of falling out of love. I funneled my emotions from a turbulent time of self-reflection into an album that I feel deeply connected to. If nothing else I think one can say that it’s sincere. Along the way I felt the urge to document moments that captured the mood of the record, which turned into snapshots of each song and eventually what I have to present to you now: Manifest Destiny, the film. It’s somewhere between a home movie and an art film; just as experimental as the album. These are vague allusions to the memories that inspired these songs meant for background play as you listen to the album.

Thank you.

Gilman Mom releases new experimental album "Manifest Destiny"

Moody and throbbing, I've released "Manifest Destiny" under the name Gilman Mom. Full of dark chords, heartfelt vocals, and field recordings, is the very first release by Macaque Records.

This album that attempts to musically convey a perspective shift that I had during a storm. I found myself drenched and devastated after a late night walk, mother nature pouring around me. I stayed in a dark place for quite some time during this abnormally long act of nature. Something remarkable happened: as I found myself learning from my predicament and emotionally emerging into a new state, the storm faded. I've never been that entwined with nature and it felt truly remarkable.

This project means a lot to me and I sincerely hope someone else is able to connect with it the way I do.

Check it out!

Why I Decided To Upload My Entire Label's Archive To FMA

Right now, I am absolutely stumped at what to write in explanation of uploading my label’s entire music catalogue to the Free Music Archive. I’ve sat here for at least 20 minutes in a Minneapolis coffee shop, damn bewildered at where to start, or even the intonation to take with this piece.

When I booked my first tour with The Blend, back in 2005, I bought as many blank CDs as possible to mail out to each city we planned to hit. Each CD had a flier stapled to its case, and was distributed by a coffee shop or friend willing to prop them up in a visible spot, or hand out. With that maneuver, we were able to pull a fan-base that had never seen us before, but had heard our sound. The simplicity of giving our music out for free, created an invaluable ripple effect across the country. Soon, as myspace, facebook and other social media sites arose to prominence, we were able to stream our music to anyone that happened to cross our site. Now, I know how way, way, way back this is. I mean, I just referenced myspace. Not the Justin-Timberlake-owned-newly-revamped myspace, but the original myspace with the user experience of a Neanderthal, and fonts worse than “Papyrus” or “Impact”.

Over the past decade, The Blend, and several other bands I’ve managed, have produced amazing music and then moved on to other projects. However, in an effort to preserve the integrity of these projects (or albums), I’ve sought to keep as much of the music alive online, as possible.

[LBN032] Samurau – “Things left unsaid” (December 07, 2015)

"Things Left Unsaid" is not only the testimony of a precise moment, but rather the result of a long research, composition and improvisation done by the band: there's a  common area where  musical elements from diametrically opposed musical worlds such as jazz and contemporary music, rock and blues coexist without forgetting the melodic vocation in each composition.

Samurau: the band  (Michele Sanna - guitars; Matteo Muntoni – el.bass; Alessandro Garau- drums) after a long period of mutual courtship and knowledge among the members, was officially founded in 2014: the aim is to satisfy the need to blend in total freedom, sounds, music, different styles through their own compositions.

King Capisce - The Future Cannot Be Born Yet....

Album Cover: The Future Cannot Be Born Yet, It Is Waiting For The Past To Die

 

King Capisce return to the fold with a new album, renewed ambition and arguably their most mature work to date. 'The Future Cannot Be Born Yet, It Is Waiting For The Past To Die' is an eclectic mix of influences that broadly take in the Jazz and Post/Alt rock spheres, but aims to move beyond that into their own dynamic, instrumental and thought provoking sound, from the cinematic to wall of sound.

The new record, 'The Future Is Not Born Yet, It Is Waiting For The Past To Die'.  

Press for the album.

“Frantically intelligent instrumental jazz”- Drowned In Sound 

“It could easily have been them on the Mercury Prize 2014 short list – maybe next year” - The Guardian 

“An exciting cross-genre talent, fusing jazz with other influences to create a sound that is unmistakably their own” – Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music 

“Jazzy post-rock gold done to a ludicrously high standard” - Artrocker Magazine
