The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews The ‘Posthuman’ Video by Conquer Monster

Posted by

Happy December, folks!

Back in November of 2015, I had the pleasure of talking with Joshua Faulkner and Daniel Romero of the Salt Lake City super synth duo known as Conquer Monster. Their album, ‘Metatransit‘, had just been released the previous month in October, and on top of being incredibly sound design savvy with a variety of instruments, synthesizers, and a C64 on their album the group also performs live and focuses a good portion of their time on reeling listeners in with visuals. Debuting on December 11, 2017, the group has taken one of their tracks ‘Posthuman’ from ‘Metatransit’ and created a retro video featuring the artists in a 90s point-and-click inspired video game.

The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘Do Not’, a score by Parallelis

Posted by

I love recording digging; it’s what I do to find something new to listen to, but like with everything in life, I’m picky. I get bored easily and obsess over the same few albums relentlessly — I’m selective with where I go and I do the things that I like. While I listen to a lot of music, it takes something special to really grab my attention. I’m generally drawn towards music that tells a great story, with sounds that catch my interest. I’m always trying to educate myself with what I hear, and when I was digging through the ChipWINdex, it was the score of ‘Do Not’, by Parallelis that caught my attention.

Inside The Daякcнip Mind of Solid State Disaster

Posted by

Hey, Frank here with another installment of Inside The Daякcнip Mind. This time I had the opportunity to get hold of an album a few weeks before its release, but, even after that first listening,  I didn’t realize how great it truly was till I put it on my phone & spent some quality time with it, looping the music while going on random walks. The album has a very intense overall feel, with the layers of vocals & bass being pretty damn intense as well. The album & artist I speak of is Solid State Diaster‘s newest release ‘My Skin So Thin.’
