Free Music Friday With B. Fleischmann and Bryan John Appleby
Welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Today we have two great new tracks for you. The first is from B. Fleischmann, an Austrian multi-instrumentalist. It’s called “I’m Not Ready For The Grave Yet” off of his upcoming Morr Music release of the same name. The second track is from a drummer turned singer/guitarist called Bryan John Appleby. The track is “The Rider, The Horse, The Land” and it’s from his debut album titled Fire On The Vine.
We hope you enjoy this week’s free tracks and we look forward to bringing you more music news for music fans next week.
B.Fleischmann aka Bernhard Fleischmann has debuted the first single from his new album, I’m Not Ready For The Grave Yet, out November 6 with Morr Music. In his forthcoming release, the Austrian multi-instrumentalist has put an emphasis on vocals, and after previously collaborating with other voices, here for the first time only his vocals are heard. B.Fleischmann will make a special one-off appearance in NYC tomorrow Saturday, September 15, previewing the new tracks at the Austrian Cultural Forum’s Moving Sounds Festival. The event features pioneering artists who specialize in electronically generated music.
Following his 2011 release M/Mikro_Kosmos, I’m Not Ready For The Grave Yet is an honest survey by a man who looks into the future, a man who’s trying to translate suicidal longing for freedom into rather wild and yet more comprehensible instrumental terms. The album deals with difficult topics such as mortality, ticking clocks, and the elusiveness of all existence, all while B.Fleischmann is breaking new sonic ground. Focusing more on beats, rhythms, percussive elements and pushing things onward, the tracks range from rough around the edges to soft and mellow. The opposing elements make for just the right balance between sonic experiment and developed song structures. Here is “I’m Not Ready For The Grave Yet”:
Bryan John Appleby
Bryan John Appleby wasn’t always interested in writing his own music. In reality, he was a drummer by trade, relocating to Seattle from sunny Santa Cruz, California in order to take music more seriously with his band at the time. After the disintegration of the group, Bryan was left to make a decision. Was he to continue his pursuit of drumming or was it time for him to carve out his own piece of the Seattle music scene? With an acoustic guitar in hand, Bryan started writing and performing his own style of novel inspired folk music around the city. After releasing his first EP Shoes for Men and Beasts, Bryan gained some local attention when he released his first live take away performance for the single “Cliffs Along The Sea” which you can watch here.
Soon after, Bryan released his full length album Fire on the Vine in 2011. A handful of sold out shows later, Bryan has shared the stage with the likes of Damien Jurado, Deep Sea Diver, Pickwick, Lemolo and The Head & The Heart. Bryan continues to play his unique style of story driven folk ballads, winning over new audiences at every show. Here is Bryan’s song “The Rider, The Horse, The Land”:
