UP DHARMA DOWN - CAPACITIES


Join the Armi's
Released: 2013



Philippines Post-Rock Pioneers Up Dharma Down.  My new favorite Filipino band.  Just the right mix of feel-good calmative music.  Armi Millare's voice gives me the goosebumps brought up by her passionate delivery.  The tracks "Thinker" and "Feelings" for me stood out among the others. And the version of Feelings featuring Paul Buchanan (Blue Nile) is an awesome add-on treat.

GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! - MORE SKIN WITH MILK-MOUTH


Instrumental Math Rock
Released: December 2007



I was completely blown away by this band. Giraffes Giraffes are Joseph Andreoli and Kenneth Topham.  Highly technical yet so free and complacent. One of those bands that would make you go squirm and think of how music should sound these days.  Guitar tapping and complicated drum patterns.  The fill-ins are unmistakably generous and profound.   Every song embodies just the right amount of conflict that almost tells the whole story within.
