Alt-rocker Winter Darks releases debut album ‘Any Place All the Time’

The singer and songwriter of alternative rock music known as Winter Darks has released her debut album, “Any Place All the Time.” The record contains 11 original Winter Darks songs for an approximate total listening time of 42 minutes. It has been proudly published on the Spaceship Radio independent music label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Bearing elements of alt-rock, early indie rock and even pre-millennium emo, “Any Place All the Time” showcases Winter Darks as one of today’s most intriguing rock songwriters.

Portland, Oregon’s Winter Darks cites as main artistic influences Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, classical guitar music, ’90s grunge rock and alternative rock. Elements of these are easily discerned in “Any Place All the Time,” so that fans of the above are sure to find something they appreciate in this Freshman release from Winter Darks.

As her stage moniker hints, Winter Darks began in music under bleak circumstances. Asked to describe her start as an artist, Darks writes, “Isolation + trauma + desperation.” However, she also reveals that creativity in music comes naturally to her: “I started writing melodies and ideas the day I picked up a guitar.”

Darks has described her music as “gloomily optimistic.” A down-to-earth and discernably genuine person, she openly declares her songs “honest and relatable.” Nevertheless, Winter Darks does have an introverted facet to her musical character.

When I started playing guitar,” writes Darks, “I didn’t want anyone to hear what I had written, so I only played guitar for other people’s bands and never sang. I wasn’t that happy, so I tried making my own project using my songs but finding someone to sing my lyrics for me. I never found the right chemistry with anyone, so I tried playing and singing one of my songs at an open mic, and it finally felt right.”

Any Place All the Time,” the debut album from Winter Darks, is available at over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, alt-rock fans.

The Vidos release new EP ‘All the Time’

The Vancouver rock trio known as the Vidos have released their latest EP record, “All the Time.” The EP is composed of five original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 15 minutes. The album has been proudly published as an independent release entirely without support of the corporate music industry. Upbeat, poppy, raw and quirky, “All the Time” by the Vidos has everything fans of indie rock look for, and for which fans of indie rock keep coming back.

 

The Vidos cite as main musical influences such bands as the Strokes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Foo Fighters and Sonic Youth. Their official Facebook page also gives mention to the Vaccines, the White Stripes, Weezer, Marilyn Monroe, Radiohead, and Smashing Pumpkins. While this amalgam may seem unlikely and varied at first glance, a consistent thread appears in terms of imaginative tones, general irreverence and clever songwriting throughout. Each of these sonic attributes is clearly evident in “All the Time” by the Vidos, and audiophiles in the Vancouver area have been taking notice.

 

Describing their own sound and character in a few words, the Vidos write, “Bass, guitar, vocals and drum skins as loud as they can go, sometimes a little louder than that, even. We provide an unrelentingly energetic show and write really upbeat ‘n’ catchy songs about girls, death, and food. We’re here to bring the funk back.”

 

Exuberant, youthful and eternally energetic, the Vidos list among their favorite things Mario Kart, “(awful)” movies, hockey, art, exotic cheeses, tetherball, and the color orange. Their bizarre collective sense of humor is integral to the overall Vidos experience, one which affects their music from its writing to its performance, and from its performance to its recording. One track from their previous LP record, “2012,” includes vocals recorded through a tiny microphone implanted in a toaster, into which their singer projected his voice.

 

Formed in 2011, the band’s live videos drape across the Internet like a blanket and can be viewed from an assortment of websites including their official band site (link provided below). Live interviews on public radio stations are also available for listening.

 

“All the Time” by the Vidos is available online worldwide beginning July 25, 2014, and directly from the band’s official website now. Get in early.
