Coastlands
Post-Rock. Ambient. Instrumental. Portland, Oregon

Coastlands is an instrumental ambient/post-rock band out of Portland, Oregon. Formed in 2011, The four piece lineup features Jason Sissoyev and Nick Fisher on guitars, Jordan Householder on 7-string guitar and Rick Keefer on drums and percussion. Drawn together by a mutual love of music and a penchant for unusual instrumentation and recording methods, each member lends elements of their diverse musical experience, resulting in a sound that is expansive, cinematic, ethereal and highly textured. They have produced several EP’s and a handful of singles since their inception. They have been featured in a couple of documentaries, and their most recent release, Come Morning, A Radiant Light, sold out it’s first edition within days of announcing its pre release. Citing influence from artists such as Ef, Mono, Mogwai, and Logh, their own interpretation of the genre is heavily guitar-laden and woven with distortion and atmospheric resonance that traces the sweeping landscape of the Pacific Northwest.

Glassing
The debut LP from Glassing, aptly titled Light and Death, is a feat of beautifully crushing juxtaposition. The Austin, TX based trio of guitarist Cory Brim, drummer Jason Camacho (Lechuguillas), and singer & bassist Dustin Coffman (Feuding Fathers) effortlessly walks a razor’s edge between innumerable pairs of opposites on their inaugural full-length, revealing a cohesion well beyond their years. With roots in both metal and hardcore, as well as a collective appreciation for texture, tonal complexity, and asymmetric song structure, Glassing coalesce into an utterly ruinous, and totally unpredictable force across Light and Death’s duration. What is in one moment rising ambient tension or an intelligible 4/4 time-signature is, in the blink of an eye, replaced by successive shockwaves of full-on destructive catharsis. Light and Death progresses through its blistering trajectory with the only constant being change and the only reasonable expectation being the unexpected; clarity oscillates organically with immutable sludge as does order with disorder, all to arrest the listener in an addictive, aurally induced Stockholm syndrome.

True to form, Light and Death is replete with Glassing’s penchant for compositional misdirection. Any serenity or sense of safety that was established within the inceptive seconds of the album’s opener Lifewrecker are hastily, and entirely, obliterated; foreshadowing the perpetual initiations-by-fire that are to come. Owing much to Coffman’s insistence on neither the band nor the listener “ever being allowed to be comfortable”, their consensual commitment to mercurial shifts in tempo and tone are disturbingly affective. Accidental chord resolution, self-proclaimed “1/1” timing-counts, and an affinity for risk-taking all play significant roles in the band’s collective, generative writing process. Narrated by Coffman’s demonic vociferations, Brim’s primary focus on palpably angular textures, blasted through two full-stacks at all the bands live shows as well as throughout this recording, locks-in with Camacho’s impossibly adaptive kit-dexterity so seamlessly that one would think the three individuals to be a single organism; respective cells making up a greater monster’s body.

Were melancholy allowed to instantly turn into anger as well as made bombastic and deafening, Glassing’s Light and Death would be much easier to describe. Instead what we have is an experiential journey into the abyss, lead with such precision and cogency that one is left with the feeling that this, despite being their debut LP, is not Glassing’s first plunge into chaos.

Terra Collective
Terra Collective
Terra Collective is a progressive rock band hailing from Denton, TX. Drawing from multiple genres such as math rock, jazz-fusion, and experimental rock, the five-piece band is full of rich sonic atmospheres, captivating grooves, and memorable vocal melodies.



The band began to take shape in early 2015 when guitarist Andrew McMillan, bassist Sean Miller, and vocalist Kevin Duran of the Denton-based progressive metal band, 1945, joined forces with halfsleep drummer, Brian Radcliffe. The group spent their first year writing and refining their sound before performing alongside acts such as Plini, Intervals, Save Us From The Archon, Vasudeva, Hikes, and Sianvar. Looking to expand their sound even further, the band brought in guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Jordan Gheen of Sky Window and The Night Above Us in 2016 and began recording.



Terra Collective has garnered a substantial following amongst the Dallas/Ft. Worth music scene in their short existence, and with the arrival of their debut EP, “Emerge” in August of 2017, the band is sure to extend their reach to an even wider audience.
