Themes - The Phantom

THEMES creates a lush sound scape of proto folk rock mixing thick Baritone
guitars, heavy piano driven arrangements, and fiercely pensive rhythms, while male and female vocals intertwine, weaving colorful blankets of stories filled with an ageless haunted insight, that somehow, seems urgently necessary in today’s world. While striking a thoughtful tone, THEMES draws many comparisons to such greats as Nick Cave, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Grace Slick, and Neil Young.

THE DEEP FREEZE MICE
The Deep Freeze Mice were an English New Wave band that were active between 1979 and 1989. They were based in Leicester, and consisted of the core members Alan Jenkins (guitars and singing), Sherree Lawrence (organ and other keyboards), and Mick Bunnage (bass guitar). The band had two different drummers over the years: Graham Summers and Pete Gregory.
The band released 10 albums during their existence on their own labels: from 1979 to 1983 on Mole Embalming Records, from 1983 to 1989 on Cordelia Records. Their music was odd, often consisting of absurd and surreal lyrics delivered in Alan's deadpan voice accompanied by bouncy pop/progressive rock music. Favoured lyrical concerns included animal rights, conformity, and science fiction.  "wikipedia"

other in june

From Russia with love
Other In June is an acoustic side-project of Dmitry “Flo” Tishin,
the leader of goth band Doppelgänger,
who describes his music as “…summer air vibrations.
These are visions dissolving in evening twilight.
Flo runs this project all by himself doing vocals, playing acoustic guitars and keyboards as well as programming
The sound is very close to what’s called 
gothic americana or alt-country 
sometimes and has a strong vibe 
of oldschool goth music.
Other In June released two EPs 
and the first full-length Under the Headstones.  "lastfm"

For A Minor Reflection - Höldum í átt að óreiðu

Starting life as a hard rock duo in a tiny garage in Reykjavík, Iceland, For a Minor Reflection (FaMR) morphed into an indie rock trio (for a week or so) and a blues quartet (for a little longer) before finally arriving at their current incarnation: instrumental post-rockers du jour.
Needless to say the tour with Sigur Rós attracted the attention of a lot of promoters which landed them a showcase slot at Eurosonic at the start of 2009 and a months headline tour in Europe early summer last year Spending the rest of the summer writing a new album FaMR chose the Sigur Ros studio in Iceland to record 10 new songs with LA producer Scott Hackwith.
