From the beginning, Mother’s Mistakes sought urgently to exorcise demons–of whatever type–that chattered in the artists’ ears. “Elegy”, from the groups self-titled album, is a song about racing against time.
“You know that birds, they only fly away It’s a matter of perspective indefinite Time moves in a linear fashion But the human condition moves infinite
You and I, we have but little time before it’s all over And our stabilities are all abstract We can’t afford to stoke idle hearts And regret after the fact”
Noah and the Chilly Boys managed to acquire enough aluminum foil and LEDs to realize their dream of creating a music video that perfectly fits the tone of their debut single. As a team of five “adults”, it can be difficult to manage the hurdles that come along with time management, teamwork, and creative collaboration. It’s nice to see that they’re not afraid to poke fun at themselves and have a good time along the way.
Quadrivalent Records welcomes metal band The Antarctican to its humble roster!
The band hails from Ballston Lake, New York, where they compose groove/power metal, citing influences like Nevermore, Haken, Scar Symmetry, Gojira, Blind Guardian, and Control Denied.
Listen to “Abduction”:
The Antarctican – Abduction @Bandcamp
Actively denying that pandemic boredom spawned a metal band, the members of The Antarctican indulge a fantasy that their project comes from the lethal desolation of that icy continent, a primordial cross-section of unfathomable extra-terrestrial sophistication, mutagenic radioactive reptile droppings, and limitless volcanoes of molten mental magma. What The Antarctican is not, they assure you, is five guys from upstate New York who argue about squirrels a lot.
You can check out the band at their page here at Quadrivalent, or visit them on social media:
Until now, the music of singer-songwriter Frank Schoonbeck’s solo career has been unavailable on the web. Today we launch the Bandcamp account of this frequent Quadrivalent collaborator, with unlimited free listens to all tracks of his three solo albums.
Frank’s contribution to the music scene in New York’s Capital Region for the last several decades has been well recognized by local musicians. He sat in with countless bands, participated in many recordings, and stood on numerous stages, entertaining and inspiring. His last record, Before Sunrise, was recorded and engineered at QRV’s own Biscuit Bend studio.
In addition to Before Sunrise, which has a minimalist, man-with-acoustic-guitar feel, rock ensemble albums KNew and Music in Voice are also available at Frank’s Bandcamp:
Later this year, music duo Mother’s Mistakes (of which Frank was half) will release two music videos. Subscribe to be notified!
