Drew Miller is back with something new under one of my favorite nom de plumes, The Northern Hemisphere. He may have some new music just around the corner, could be under this name or a few more so as always, stay tuned but for now, have a listen to how is to take “A Walk In The Park”.
There are times when I see that Drew Miller has released new music, I’m more than happy but when he uses another nom de plume, I’m thinking “again?” However, when he retains one name for a number of releases, I am at least comfortable in knowing this. Sure, it’s all tags and perhaps it doesn’t matter for Miller is more than willing to create and release his music and here’s another one of his, under the name Brother Saturday. This project is called three dead horsemen and you can say each horseman is here in the form of a song. The shortest song on this album is 6 1/2 minutes while the largest is a few seconds short of 31 minues, he’s going on that BVDUB vibe. Miller/Brother Saturns continues with his great travels so get this and see where he turns to. It’s a free release but definitely use the “Name Your Price” option to show support.
You may not know Colorado musician Drew Miller just yet but if you’ve been keeping track of my website for the las few year years, you have seen projects by The Northern Hemisphere, Aywazlawst, Brother Saturn, and Chromadrift. Two new albums have been released, thsi time by The Northern Hemisphere and Chromadrift.
Both albums are available for free but if you are really into what Miller offers, show some support or maybe even better, if you’re a movie or video director and want to collaborate with him for a future project, get in contact with him, he’s on both Twitter and Facebook.
Newly released today is another project from Drew Miller, this time under the name Chromadrift and this time an EP with the title Europa Mission. Five songs in total, which includes a 13-minute closing track called “Night Terrors”, which is sure not to scare you (unless you’re determined to be scared) but it is meant to make you think, which is pretty much what his music is always about. You were able to preview “Night Terrors” here and now you can hear and download the project in full.
New song from the mind of Chromadrift comes “Lost Among The Sea”, moving comfortably at a little over three minutes. This will be part of an EP coming out very soon on the Indelible Niche Collective label.
A few days ago, Colorado’s Drew Miller posted a new song under the name Brother Saturn. In his way to continue to explore his creativity and potential, he has released a brand new album but under the Chromadrift name, just to keep his fans guessing. This one is called White Noise, a paranormal-sort of album which has to do to find a way to talk with the afterlife, or at least the songs are in honor of those who are no longer in this existence. The tracks are said to continue the communication, if it was possible to do so. You can stream the album now or download it for free via FLAC lossless or MP3’s via Bandcamp.
Cex creates an illustrious set of different music on Shamaneater but just when you’re satisfied with one branch of his expertise, he goes into another leading into another than many more, what may sound off or wrong suddenly becomes a part of his output, and you’re not sure whether to listen further or just immerse yourself in Cex’s richness.
At first, Shamaneater sounds like something ready-made for a bigger film or video production, or maybe something that’s meant to be heard in a soundtrack context. Other tracks could easily fit within a video game context, almost 8-bit but more bolder, bigger, and stronger, and when certain drums/drum samples may not sound like it fits, you take it in for yourself. The IDM feeling will make you react in a way that brings you in further into the pulse of the music, I think at times I’ll hear it at a certain tempo and automatically want to adapt to it in a hip-hop context (which works quite well in that fashion) but as you hear it slower or faster, it will lead you hearing to other things, or thinking in a way that isn’t just a friendly game of boom bap. The concentration in these pieces are similar to the video game experience, but it leads you in further. The fact that it serves as a soundtrack to a video game may prove its point, but it’s much more than that.
