AVAILABLE NOW – THE FOLSOM PROJECT Releases Their Debut Cinematic Concept Album THE WOLF & THE SKULL

The Wolf & The Skull - Cover image

From the mind of composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Romsam Malpica, a new way of presenting cinematic atmospheres through an audiovisual experience has been born under his moniker THE FOLSOM PROJECT. A mix of Orchestral Rock, Trap, and Trip-hop, THE FOLSOM PROJECT draws inspiration from Romsam’s experience with film scoring and dark sound design, which he explores on his debut cinematic concept album THE WOLF & THE SKULL, releasing online February 21 everywhere music is streamed and sold, followed by an official CD release on March 13, 2020.

 

THE FOLSOM PROJECT was conceived in 2015 while Romsam was studying music production for a year at Pyramind in downtown San Francisco, CA. Originally from Jalisco, Mexico, Romsam was inspired by his new surroundings, and he took the name of the street where his SF Music Academy was located for THE FOLSOM PROJECT.

 

It was here that Romsam Malpica began to develop the concept of an “audible action thriller.”  The resulting debut album THE WOLF & THE SKULL is a soundtrack to the story he tells of a sick and troubled doctor in charge of a biochemical lab in the middle of the woods. The doctor works on the mysterious Folsom Project, which hides a dark truth. The story is told through the eyes of  “The Wolf,” an animalistic creature that awakens in the woods with no memory and a thirst for vengeance, and explores The Wolf’s journey to unravel the truth about his past and stop the doctor at all costs.

 

The first single to introduce the album’s concept was “Dr. Schmidth,” which was released digitally in the summer of 2019 and is, as Romsam calls it, “the villain’s ballad.” Following that release was “Iceland,” the next single that explores a conversation between the secondary characters Ali and Bob, aka The Skull. Ali is in her mid-twenties and was abducted by the Project, while The Skull is a biogenetic scientist and the doctor’s partner.

 

These first two singles culminated with the digital release of The Wolf & The Woods EP, which featured the first five songs off the new full-length album. Romsam also designed visual elements across all the artwork and videos for the project to help establish the main color and tone of the album’s story, set amongst the dark imagery of the woods and featuring characters like The Wolf, The Lady in White, or The Skull with his mysterious yet unknown intentions.

 

Get a taste of the cinematic audiovisual experience provided by THE FOLSOM PROJECT and the new debut album THE WOLF & THE SKULL, releasing online February 21 everywhere music is streamed and sold, followed by an official CD release on March 13, 2020.

Simon Barrett Fundraiser

Everyone here at IDC is very sad to learn of the recent passing of Simon Barrett. Simon could always be counted on to conduct enthusiastic and wide-ranging interviews with various IDC artists (and many others) on Blog Talk Radio. His presence in the industry will be sorely missed.

Please find a link here for a fundraiser to help Simon’s family in this difficult time:

Better by Karney

Great review for Karney’s Better EP

Oasis Entertainment

Better is the latest EP by solo recording artist Karney (AKA Anna Karney), a five-track album a stunning collection of original new songs together with a remix, and a cover of Ramble On, one of Karney’s favorite Led Zeppelin songs.  This band comprises bassist Kevin  White (The Chuck Prophet Band), guitarist Erik Smyth (Mo’fessionals, Too Short), and also returning on guitar James DePrato (The Chuck Prophet Band). Drummer Jeff Herrera remains the steady backbeat of the group, and horn section heavyweights include trumpet player Bill Ortiz (Santana, Tony Toni Tone), Sax/Electric Bassoonist Paul Hanson (Bela Fleck, Billy Cobham) and Anna Karney holds down guitar, various piano, organ and strings sounds, and lead and background vocals on all songs.  In addition to her version of Ramble On, this EP contains the title track Better, Trust, Snake Oil Salesman, and Round And Round. I was impressed with her songwriting talents…
