Concept album creator Monk Turner releases his 26th album “God Complex”. The album features songs delivered from the viewpoint of 12 of the major gods from Greek mythology.

His music has received national and international attention. In 2013, WFMU and the Free Music Archive held a competition to create a copyright-free version of the “Happy Birthday to You”. Turner’s composition with musician Fascinoma “It’s Your Birthday!” won the contest and has now over half a million downloads.

For God Complex, Turner enlisted a cadre of vocalists who presented themselves as Greek gods singing contemporary, autobiographical tunes. The album was written and recorded over the course of a year, and documented via his YouTube channel.

Each video gives background information on the god, then dives into the creation process that includes preliminary demo feedback.

A versatile greek concept album.

We’ve been asked why we don’t write about indie. We do, but not too often, because it often sucks too much and we don’t suffer enough.

Screaming guitar, aspirate singer, left piano, suffering drums and a bass full of pain searching for love: That’s what Lyonn bring to you. Lyonn are basically Tyler Gelrud and Attila Yavuzer, two young guys, who spent an inordinate amount of time traveling until they bumped into each other.

The last thing I wanna see is you.

Arrow & Olive from Nashville are Kate Carlson and Michael McEachern. They play something between indie, folk and pop. We like these tiny little songs about love and hope. After their first single “Our Place” they release the self-titled album “Arrow & Olive”.

More intimate folk.
