The Time has Come..


Today it's my turn to tell everyone that I'll be taking a break and will move forward. This will probably be my last post. I will keep this blog up so people can still check back on the archives.

I've met people from different music scene and enjoyed their music. I've met a few and had seen what kind of people they are. That's enough for me. I will have fun listening to music whatever I like not worrying about what to write in Overtuneph.

I'd like to send out my thanks to everyone who visits my blog, to those who  believed in me, to the local music scene hardcore punk, electronic music and indie pop scene. Keep on creating beautiful music, I will continue to check on your stuff when I get the chance.

See you later,

January-February shows!


Shows to look forward to this coming January and February 2012!
Mark your calendars, boys and girls!

CERUMENTRIC Latest Release


Cerumentric never fails to amaze me with his music. The latest release is from Indonesian netlabel Tsefula/Tsefuelha Records. Both tracks are my favorite, and these are what I need right now. You can read my first post regarding Cerumentric HERE.

Listen to the 2-track juicy bits of synthrock, it gives you chills every time.

Peopling EP


Here's another pretty interesting EP from Peopling which I found on my inbox last week. Peopling is a solo project by a noise-rock artist from Brooklyn, NY. It has 6 track loaded with delicious noise going on all over the place. Now if you don't dig noise or if you're not ready for a new taste then this is not for you. But hey, it's not bad to try this up for a fresh start. Each songs has its different texture and sound element that you should check out. Peopling EP is also available in iTunes.

Gentle Universe


I really dig the track "Saglit" by Gentle Universe because of its soft minimal tones, children-inspired ambient sound. There is some beautiful keyboard and unique instruments going on there. I know it's still early but it is very good. They will launch an EP soon, and I will definitely give you all an update about it.

Gentle Universe is founded by ambient musician and sound designer Cris of Blend:er, the group use vintage synths, computers, toys and field recordings in creating music.

Check out their video during Lopez Museum's Reverb (Zero In Exhibit) at SM Mall of Asia last September, and see what I mean.

A Tribute to The Lucksmiths


Thanks to Enzo's post in Facebook, it reminded me of Lucksmiths' best music. The Lucksmiths were an indie pop band from Melbourne, Australia, they played catchy melody and jangly pop masterpieces, they disbanded in 2009. They are surely missed.

Manila's indie pop finest artists made a tribute to the band some time ago titled "Music to Hold Hands to"  with The Lucksmiths' delicious pop sound, a 21-track free download in Bandcamp. This is a compilation that you'll listen to no matter what year it is and some what a best mix while driving.

Here's to everyone in the world!

Sunday Driven Holiday - Ironic Humor EP


If you're looking for songs to unwind to after a long rough day, look no further than the "Ironic Humor EP" by Sunday Driven Holiday. The EP came our way not so long ago, six tracks hit our ears for a while. I'm pretty much impressed with Darwin's voice and emotions that pour out of him on this release. The album has a new mellow sound to it, catchy sounding acoustic guitars and drum beats are present and contains emotional lyrics all though out the album. The mix of acoustic on their music demonstrates well with the genre the band have created.

This has become another great rainy day tunes to put on your players when the skies turned grey. I'm hoping to catch them live someday. I couldn't find any preview of their tracks, but there's a video posted on their Facebook that will keep you going until you get your own copy of their EP. Please visit Sunday Driven Holiday on Facebook for gig schedules and more details.

Piledriver in Lipa City

3rd annual show of

Carnival Park


I caught this band off in early 2000 mixtape which I got from a friend. After a few listens I know this band is right up in my alley. I followed their Myspace and Facebook for news, they did a few gigs and for some reason have been quiet for some time until a 3-track Demo for their upcoming album came out. Note that I haven't gotten to see any of their shows. Boo me. Okay, I might need to make a schedule to check them out one day.

Carnival Park's "This Feels like Summer" is totally sounding pop, reminds me of The Sundays on this track. "I Know the Steps to this Dance" song  has an atmosphere which is open with their instruments, mellow and nostalgic. With their songs, I always feel like they will be more enjoyed while lying on your back looking up the clouds before sunset or watching the stars at night.

I think they are currently working on the album coming out soon, I'll certainly be checking their site for updates: Facebook, Bandcamp.

Here's a taste of This Feels Like Summer. Enjoy!

History of Brave New World in Philippines


I'm one of those who missed this magazine in 2008 probably because it's Joey Mead cover or I have forgotten to look back at the issue, or  I have moved on to different course of life but this is indeed a good read. I saw this from Albert Ascona's wall post in Facebook and I would like to share this to everyone around the globe.

Kyte - Remix Works


Wow, It's been raining all week here. I miss the sun. I haven't updated this blog much.

Anyway, leaving you guys with an awesome music by Kyte from their new album Remix Works.  My favorite from the album is their collaboration with Au Revoir Simone and Feldberg, but the rest of the songs are still good. Kyte is an electronic indie pop group from England. Their early music was often labeled shoegaze/post rock but this time they have moved into more electro pop influenced sound.

Get a dose of Kyte and enjoy the cold breeze my friends!

Stuck in Da mix by F-Zero


 I wasn't familiar with the tracks prior to hearing this but this mix is some DnB super boner shit! I've been listening to it every time and gets better each time.

Get it, if you dig this shit like I do. Oh and It's Free. Go, Go!

The Skyflakes


I've ran across the band a couple of times many years ago. It's about time I make a post about them. The Skyflakes are a Filipino American indie band from California. According to the band's Bandcamp site, the album Five Year Mission was released in March 2011 but recorded in 2006-2008. Smooth, cute and dreamy with that indie electro feel. Tricia's voice fall under that category of exquisitely beautiful voice, drawn out in the sweet cold breeze.

"Cellar Door" starts out with dreamy tune with droning guitars, lovely and it's actually my favorite track.  The rest of the songs have strong tunes and melody that made me like them. I can't describe how good the music are, you've got to listen to them yourself.

I think this is such an undeniably pretty album. 

Check out The Skyflakes on Facebook and Bandcamp.
