Listen/purchase: My Wish Is Your Command Feat. Weish by Odradek & Sphaeras Feat. Weish

A mathrock-prog-metal summit on the joint release Sun Seeker by Brazil’s Odradek and Sphaeras from Singapore.    My Wish Is Your Command is a “Collaborations track featuring Fabiano & Caio of Odradek, Axel of Sphaeras and Weish of .Gif / Sub:Shaman.”

The entire album is quite insane, a must-listen for fans of math rock!  If I’m reading the credits correctly, Odradek have 3 songs (3 with vocals, one of which is in Engish), Sphaeras have 2 songs plus a collaboration with the Singapore band Two Seas.  The title track and My Wish Is Your Command feature Fabiano & Caio of Odradek and (bassist) Axel of Sphaeras.    

Weish is absolutely perfect for this crazy, haunting material. “one of the most insane collaborations i’ve ever done… recording vocals on a track that (literally) summoned the supernatural. still makes my hair stand listening to it…

The album comes out Monday, listen/purchase at bandcamp.

(Linying)

Just read that Linying is going to be at Summer Sonic in Tokyo next month, you can read a short interview with her over at BandwagonSG.

Her ep (Paris 12) is coming out in September.  The song Alpine may be one we have posted before, but I think it was taken down at some point.  – Anyway, it’s back up today, so take advantage and hear this glorious ethereal music while you can!   =D

p.s. Linying has a few things on her tumblr, including lyrics for Alpine and a couple of other songs.

(M A N D A R K)

Ambient track from Mandark Ravel.  I stumbled upon her earlier this year through some connections to other TW musicians. She’s composed some jazz tunes as well, played by 顧上揚 Shang-Yang Gu-piano, 劉育嘉 Jack Liu-bass, 陳信介 Jimmy Chen-drums:

She’s also a member of I Mean Us, a quintet that formed at the end of 2015.  They do shoegaze-noisy dreampop style, with male & female vocals. Check out one of their demos:
