Fractal Control have starved for change

Mike Louttit writes socially aware and forewarning instrumental rock under the moniker Fractal Control. His debut release, Disconnection Equals Freedom, is the first installment of a series of albums that address feelings of anxiety, dread, and frustration with our society at present.

Disconnection Equals Freedom, does not articulate any specifics about the current state of the world, and is not meant to be another insight on “what’s wrong with things”. Through shred heavy numbers and thought-provoking sound bites, Fractal Control seeks to mirror the conscious and subconscious irritation and uncertainty within ourselves.

You can listen to the single, "Starved for Change" here:

Acoustic rock duo Dauzat St. Marie release debut EP


Dauzat St.Marie is a Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter duo comprised of Mat Dauzat and Heather St. Marie. Their debut EP “Falling Again” is a collection of well-crafted tracks that showcase Heather’s intoxicatingly rich voice and the duo’s tight vocal harmonies, as well as the duo’s powerful songwriting chemistry. The sound is powerful and often quite raw, with focus on their two voices and only sparse acoustic instrumentation. This powerful and raw sound captured the attention of legendary producer and mixer Ryan Greene during Dauzat St. Marie’s debut performance at the world-famous Hotel Cafe. Greene assisted Mat in the production of “Falling Again” at the duo’s North Hollywood recording studio, and he would later mix the EP.
Get a preview of the EP (out in February 2015) here:
