MOON PROTOTYPE - Electronic Sounds of Mystery, Sensuality and Bitterness

MP was born during the night in 1998. Electronic sounds, mix of mystery, sensuality and bitterness assumed, bittersweet vocals, MP must be tasted with eyes half closed. The ancestry takes place in the world of its creator, Olivier Jung. The influences are very diverse, Tricky to Nine Inch Nails through Luke Slater, Radiohead and Depeche Mode, Wovenhand to Deftones. MP is located between Paris and 
the Moon. After “Melanclimax” in 2004, MP has published in 2009 a new Ep entitled “Born Into This”, composed, recorded and mixed in one week, “a week, a track, an hour.” The new album “Dusty Lane” was released one month later. In late 2008, the EP “Red”, announces a musical turn, launching MP in new lands of sound. In late 2009, MP released a collection of remixes for various bands over the 10 past years. In 2011, MP undergoes many changes: life, hopes, ghosts, joys and sorrows will finaly give birth to “From My Belly”, consisting of five haunted songs which will make you dream about your darkest passions. Pregnancy is difficult but necessary.  (as compiled on the bands website)

HOTELS & HIGHWAYS - Cabin Grown Music!

At a crucial moment of quiet intensity, the members of Hotels & Highways heard the wind rustling the trees in their headphones. For any other project it would have been an unwelcome signal to cut the take short and try again when there was golden silence. Instead, the three newly-committed band members smiled at their good fortune and carried on playing, the wind and trees now indelible partners in the song’s performance.
It was September 2010 and these songwriters were getting to be well-versed in letting their temporary home in the woods be a part of the creative process. They’d come to a lakeside cabin in New York to fulfill a mutual, career-long dream of living together while recording an album. A week-long tour of the Northeast had been booked immediately following the 10-day writing and recording retreat. The material was largely unwritten. The sound had not been clearly defined. But with each day’s new songs and each night’s recording sessions, what began as a joyful experiment in creativity and trust evolved quickly into an emerging full-length album and a well-received tour. Hotels & Highways, originally a nom de plume for songs a group of friends wrote together, had quietly and gracefully transformed into a band (as compiled from the bands website).

THE GRAND ASTORIA - Rock, St. Petersburg Style......

They are The Grand Astoria. They were born and raised under the scorching sun of Russia's South and their music first saw the light of day in the blistering cold of St. Petersburg. They don't want to call their music any names but for the lack of better words are often labeled as psychedelic stoner punk band.   Even though punk rock and metal are two major influences they enjoy rock music in all its diversity, so when you listen to TGA's new record you never know what's coming up next. It could be a metal hymn, or a psychedelic vibe or a skillful bluesy number. It may sound crazy but somehow all these styles and grooves come together in really a beautiful way in TGA's music. With their love to old-school and willingness to experiment the band wins the hearts of fans and critics alike all over the world. They write music, tour with it and repeat the cycle again, succeeding in surprising their audience with the never heard before blend of rhythms and cultures.
The members mention Iron Maiden,Mudhoney, Megadeth, Faith No More and Jimi Hendrix among their major influences. DIY ethic is the usual way the band arranges their tours and record deals.

You can easily find their records for free across the internet. During the fall of 2010 The Grand Astoria played 40 shows across Europe in support of their second album. Their third album named "Omnipresence" was released at January 1, 2011. A World Tour has been announced for the whole year as well via the band's myspace (as compiled on the bands website)

ANGSTROM - Metal / Rock

So we’re 5 guys from So Cal, we’ve finished our first album and just finished our first video. In a nutshell:   Bryan plays guitar when he’s not camping with raccoons or snowboarding, he also plays a mean game o’ beer-pong. Erick loves the drums, probably ‘cause the government or a drum company implanted a chip in his head that made him do it. Jay shreds the other guitar when he’s not uh... calmly… shredding people with Jiu-Jitsu? Mike destroys the bass, when he doesn’t have to deal with black widows coming out of his shorts (true story). He can also be seen with Mr. Hyperactive Frank (Vocals) drinking cheap beer and throwing a stuffed green turtle to Gus (Jay’s dog). We like and are influenced by so many different bands ranging from The Big 4 of Thrash, Seattle and 90’s grunge bands, Tool, RATM, Pantera to Led Zep, The Beatles, and lots in between, before and after. But most of all, we have a great respect and appreciation for the history of Rock n’ Roll. (as compiled on the bands website)

  Chris Klimecky Band

Seattle, WA
Rock / Alternative / Melodic

Play Songs »   Share Songs »   Visit Profile »


Hi admin@plutoradio.com,

We're fast approaching the new year and I wanted to invite you to one more exciting show I've got planned for 2014. It unintentionally ended up being a very acoustic year, so it's only appropriate that we finish it in my acoustic trio configuration at 88 Keys in the Pioneer Square area of downtown Seattle - Wednesday, Dec. 17th starting at 8:00pm (I will go on closer to 10pm). Even more importantly, there will be three other performers, including my good friend Clint McCune who is an incredibly talented and soulful performer. If you haven't heard him before, that's reason enough to include this evening on your holiday celebrations list! It will be a fun and spirited performance at a great location. Please join us!

Best wishes to you and yours this holiday season,
Chris

DAVE ARMO - A Tapestry of Musical Textures

Dave Armo was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. At the age of 5, his parents gave him a Bruce Springsteen tape for Christmas which inspired Dave to become a musician and writer. Dave's songwriting has become an endless endeavor which continues to produce new sounds for an ever-expanding catalog that is marked by themes of hope and redemption. Fans are known to bring homemade cookies to his live shows, which is something Dave does not understand, but greatly appreciates. (as compiled on Dave Armo's website)

THE NOTHINGDOERS - Folk Rock

The Nothingdoers are a Moscow band formed in 2004 by Igor Ivanov (guitars, vocals, keyboards) and George Manaev (guitars, bass, vocals), also known by monikers Harry Johnson and George Manson, respectively. The Nothingdoers play contemporary folk-rock oriented music with English lyrics.

Because of the appalling situation with independent music recordings in Russia, The Nothingdoers cling to the principles of DIY in their recordings and in the process of album promotion, so they still remain unsigned and plan to continue releasing their future recordings under the Creative Commons license. 

Starting their collaboration as a two-guitar act, the guys recorded their first two albums, “The Unplugged Room Of Killed Time” (2004) and “Tonight” (2005) using cheap mics and home PCs. After 2005, Igor and George played together in some indie-rock and punk bands, improving their skills as stage performers and then got back to their home studios to record their third full-length album, “Twenty Past Sixteen” (2008), which is now available for free download on the Web, at www.myspace.com/thenothingdoers, more in blog. (as compiled on the bands website)

TIME CODE ALPHA - Alternative / Experimental / Progressive

Founder member Peter Lazar has been composing songs for many years. Ranging from 70's flavoured symphonic-melodic rock in the vein of classic Yes, to, let's say, what fellow Swedes Pain of Salvation are now doing in the prog-metal genre of today.

Coming across Mads Claussen (Biscaya, Empire) to help out with lead vocals, also meant getting encouragement to present the demos on MySpace. An absolutely overwhelming result with a million plus visitors just craved for action in finally forming a band and produce an album. (as compiled on the bands website)

JACKSON RODGERS - Satisfy The Need!

Jackson Rodgers' story began shortly after he learned how to write about himself in the third person. Dragged regularly by his father to the church of the New Traditionalists, Jackson learned quickly to heed the lessons of Fathers Desert Rose, Yoakam, Earle, and Stuart, as well as those of Sisters McKee and Carlson. Alas, like all children, Jackson the Rodgers eventually began to yearn for something more; and so he began to seek out the teachings of prior generations, such as those of his namesake, Jackson the Browne. Rodgers' first, fleeting step outside the teachings of his youth enthralled his young mind, and so he strove onward on his quest to acquire more disparate musical knowledge, soon discovering such luminaries as Sirs Jennings and Nelson, as well as His Highness of Broken Hearts, King George. Further excursions would bring him to know the wisdom of the ones they call Dylan, Springsteen, Parsons, Graffin, and Gurewitz.
For many years, young Rodgers would languish in the thinking that he could never properly apply all he had learned. And then, one day, 'round the age of 16, he wrote "Satisfy the Need," and he saw that it was good. Thus began his songwriting journey, which so far has culminated in two albums' worth of material and the demos on this page (as stated on Jackon's webpage).
Where things go from here, only circumstance knows...

EARLSTOWN WINTER - Country / Folk Rock

Vancouver folk-country artists Earlstown Winter released their five-track EP, which plays much in the same vein of local group Eldorado with their brand of sweet-loving country music. The opening track, “Porch Lights”, is a slow burning moody ballad about lost love. It has a gentle, rolling, organic feel that is a perfect introduction to the band. Porch Lights is a very laidback affair. Each song is stripped back in terms of sound, but they don’t suffer for it. Singer-songwriter Jonathan Truefitt makes it all worth listening to. Truefitt has such a unique voice that one must hear to believe, as nothing is really comparable to it. Even with a single listen, anyone would be convinced that this guy’s broken heart is authentic. The final track “Helena” is quite beautiful and is guaranteed to get a tear rolling down the cheek of those listeners with a freshly broken heart. Not something that regularly comes out of the Vancouver scene, Earlstown Winter has an unpretentious, soft and thoroughly gentle sound. There is nothing abrasive or earth shattering here—just some very pretty music. (as compiled on the bands website)
