We have The Oscillation plus Simeone performing live in session on Resonance FM this afternoon.
The Oscillation began as the solo project of Demian Castellanos, a synth-led outfit which released its debut album ‘Out of Phase’ in 2008. Forming a live line-up, The Oscialltion have toured the world to great acclaim, accompanied by a pschedelic lightshow from collaborator Mr Hand. From the tightly crafted songmanship of Sandstorm to the full-on trip of Telepathic Birdman, 2011?s ‘Veils’, sees Castellanos taking a more rock driven direction, with prominent guitars and driving rhythms, reminiscent of Can and the darker side of The Cure and The Banshees.
Lee Simeone is a multi-instrumentalist who composes atmospheric synth-pop. His self produced debut album, ‘The Dream Weaver’ was recorded at The Mad Professor’s complex in Surrey back in 2009 and was released on Kevin Mooney (Adam & the Ants) and Gary Asquith’s (Renegade Soundwave) ‘Le Coq Musique’ label (a track from the album was included in an exhibition at the Tate Modern in London.) Simeone’s new album ‘An Introduction To Simeone’ sees him being hailed by Rough Trade as ‘a wunderkind multi-instrumentalist’.
