Rockefeller Junior release new album

Rockefeller Junior, a Vienna based rockband, release new album called "Celebrating Urban Alienation".

The band moved away from grunge rock to acoustic. The sound is still from deep down from the basement, but different to previous releases. Sounds dark, sounds pessimistic, sounds pure and raw. Even female voice („Burning Is My Soul“, „Love Is Only For The Anxious“) and hammond organ („Someone Else“) are included.

Some songs are instrumentals („Faster“, „Mirrors & Shades“, „Along The Shore“). There is no commercial taboo, including tempo changes.

Yes, it's an urban band. Yes, he wants to tell stories. Yes, it's Rockefeller Junior.

This 10 song album was released on 2014-02-14 on TSCHIN BUMM RECORDS, in cooperation with FINEST NOISE. Distribution not only via bandsales at gigs, but also - first time - via distributor - RADAR MUSIC.

The band also gets on radiostations in Austria and Germany

This free sound pack contains recordings of the Kershaw Eight-20 Camera made in the 1950′s. Although small in size, the camera has some great small mechanic sounds and general movement sounds that I’m sure some will find use of. Recorded using a DPA 4060 running into a Shure FP24 (Mix Pre) at resolution 96/24, this sound pack includes sounds close up, off axis, and 2 metres away (interior).
