[Features] Listen Now! Unsigned Independent Musicians 新生樂團專題


★ New bands constantly added at the top ★
★ 定期更新 – 新增樂隊將加至文章頂部  ★


As a 100% independent media, we understand how difficult to spread the words purely with passion. Since we set up Dinosaur Journal in July 2013, we have received many messages from unsigned bands from all over the world asking us to help sharing their music.

From now on, we’ll post these indie music from time to time to provide an outlet possible to be heard globally on the Internet. Hopefully this can contribute a bit to the local / indie music community. Every famous musician was once an independent artist. Some dream for growing into famous bands while some play for pure pleasure. Either way send us your music and we’ll feature it on our site.

作為100%的獨立媒體,我們明白到不利用廣告及商業關係,只靠熱誠來運作是很困難的。Dinosaur Journal 由2013年7月成立至今,收到不少世界各地音樂人寄來的音樂。

The Feral Conservatives

The Feral Conservatives – USA – Indie Rock

Indie rock band Feral Conservatives take their name from school lunch programs and instate feedback into the world of female-fronted folk rock. Known for being equal parts breezy melodic and pushing the noise-art limits of the mandolin, Ferals are out to redefine music with a $15 distortion pedal…or at least futz with it a bit. 

美國獨立搖滾樂隊的 Feral Conservatives 的名字取自學校的午餐計劃,並希望對以女樂手為主將的民謠搖滾世界作出回應。以輕快旋律和利用曼陀林作噪聲藝術主體的音樂,Ferals 誓要以便宜簡單的樂器重新定義獨立搖滾樂 。

208 Talks of Angels – Russia

208 Talks of Angels was created in 2006 in Russian and decided to search for new music concept and new extraordinary sound. The word “angel” has no religious implication, but is just the translation of Greek “aggelos” that means herald, messenger. This word is used within the music concept of this music band that contemplates adoption of something progressive and state-of-the-art. The presence of number “208” is still the secret, but it soon will be revealed.

208 Talks of Angels 於2006年在俄羅斯成立,希望尋找新音樂理念和不平凡的聲音。樂團名字中 “Angel” 一詞並沒有宗教含義,但希臘文翻譯 “aggelos” 意即使者,這詞代表着樂隊的音樂概念,於歌曲中採用一些前衛藝術意念;名中數字 “208” 則仍是秘密,但很快就會和大家揭曉。
