Showcase Your Music, 'Your Beats': 'Feuertrunken' by This is Ethmo



And now, for something completely different.  This Is Ethmo is an exciting mix of musical styles: dance, rock, ambient and much more.  I'll let the guys introduce themselves:

This is the debut EP by the mysterious St Albans 3 piece - This Is Ethmo. They formed in January 2013 after crash landing on this planet called Earth whilst on a cultural expedition from the dwarf planet UB313. They assumed the pronounceable names of Johnny Man, Absalom and X and are enjoying mixing up this planet's many musical genres whilst creating a new style of their own ETHMO. They have just 12 months left on this planet before the mothership returns to collect them. Will they change planet Earth for the better? WIll their music be the music of future generations? Will they unite our disparate planet with the rest of the Universe? Stay tuned and don't forgot the word is ETHMO. This Is Ethmo
I love the range of influences and the sense of fun on 'Feuertrunken'.  The sound is refreshing but at the same time takes me back to some of the classics from the late 80's and early 90's era of groups like The KLF and Utah Saints.  This sounds to me like the type of stuff that the late great John Peel would big up and the video takes me back to a time before the Hype Williams age of million dollar videos. I especially like the popping and locking puppet.  The myriad of styles and sense of fun is expanded even further on their newly released EP of the same name.  I strongly advise you to check it out: Dance-meets-death metal-meets-Middle Eastern-meets-mad-funky funkiness. Bravo!

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop

The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below). 

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is.


The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo.

Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop.




Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies.

It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs.

Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which is potentially painful to an earbud wearing listener.

Admittedly I am very sensitive to certain high pitch frequencies.

However, to remedy this I wo…

Georgel ‘Colibrí’

REVIEW: 'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as Georgel’s ‘Colibri’.


A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter. 
‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch.

The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood musical or Broadway show as it would be on your favourite music streaming service.


A slice of swag…
