Amy Lynn & The Gunshow

Music & Nature Sounds

Genre: experimental, future beats, r&b, soul jazz

I call it an EP but it’s more like just one 8-minute song, an illustrated journey into the wild in four parts, combined with mixed sounds I was hearing at that time, both from close surroundings and in my imagination. Quattro means ‘four’ in Italian, and all of the four songs are recorded in my home during the past week.

Dive Deeper

Genre: experimental, r&b, neu-soul, jazz fusion, hip hop

Atrophy is somewhat of a running joke I had with myself about this record (…) and the title also serves as a testament to what i’ve learned and applied as a producer and individual. (…) With every sound you may hear in this music; every single one was a learning process. In “Atrophy”, I wrote about experiences of mine within a particular six year period of my life. (…) Atrophy is my reaction to what could happen if I were to not use my creativity and expression as a means to actually feel alive. No matter how challenging or foreign the process may be, the most frightening thing always is not knowing what could have happened.

Anything released with Cult Classic Records is guaranteed to sound awesome, at least in my ears. If the previous two albums have kidnapped your ears into the depth of experimental music, this literally is your Escape, the debut album of 21 year old Greek producer Moderator.

      Thank you for your feedback, Alex! We retired the Sound Sunday series a while ago. It's great to hear that people still discover and appreciate some of these old articles. Glad you enjoyed this selection.

    I'm feeling the Fran Cossavella and Moderator albums the most, but I dig all the recommendations in this post. Thanks, I could use quite a few of these tracks in my pod-casts.

      Great to hear, Christopher!

      Which kind of podcasts did you use the tracks for?

      I'm still listening to a lot of these tracks so I'm probably about 2 or 3 podcast versions away before I include any of them.
      My blog is The Chill Vibe Experience
      and the podcast is Infinite Rhythms, which you can find on the Blog or also at Bandcamp,

    I'm kind of leaning towards the latin fusion sounds. The experimental with added trip hop or what (at my age) I'd consider rave or psychedelic don't appeal to me as much as clean improv and seemed more confused to me. The Gunnshow song was good and well done, but didn't impress me as a new take on the song so much as almost being a parody of it. I'm not a big fan of hip hop or beats and the other works were too light for me.

    Thanks for the introduction to some new music, although it wasn't exactly free, since I didn't feel right about taking their work and not paying for it, so I did.

      Thank you for the feedback, Robyn!

      The artists who offer their music for free understand that only people who can afford it and who think the music is worth it will pay for it. And it's great to hear that people actually do pay artists for their work, even when it's offered for free. I hope you really enjoy the music you purchased! :)
