BvsMV - There Is a Golden Sky

Reader Bryan has released an EP which made extensive use of iOS apps! The vibe shifts a bit through the album, but it is total shoe-gazing throughout. I really like how this one starts off with the uptempo Radiance track.

Byran also shared some of the details on how he made the EP:

"I have used a plethora of apps (it's mostly iOS) with some Abelton for mixing and “mastering” (i.e. guessing) and for some arranging on “Radiance” and “For You”. It's kind of a beat, ambient, post-rock, electronic sort of thing. The apps that show up the most are Garageband, iMaschine, Samplr, Animoog, Beatmaker 2, Holderness Media apps, Guitarism, and of course Audiobus. I know you have ADHD so feel free to stop reading here. I hope you check it out and thanks for all of the awesome work on the site!"

Joe O' Hagan - Figure Live Performance

Joe O'Hagan has been one of the youngest readers here. Now 14, he first started reading the site when he was just 12! In this jam he's got a direct audio feed, making his first video far better than most!
