  • Post-rock music from Malaysia : Gespenst

    20 jul 2012, 09:55 av Velvetleaf

    Reviews about this album:

    HEARTS COOKS BRAIN: "Post-rock that synapses, leaves are falling, even more expressive images that are inherent in this album, waiting for their liberation. In 37 minutes they flit around then, wafting into the remotest corners, give shyly times, sometimes powerful, sometimes energetic. At the start, Silver Lining sounds like the tradition of Mono and Envy, are being developed post-rock prototype, first softly, then loudly and makes everything absolutely perfect."

    MRU: "I was extremely impressed by these guys and I really did like the album. A genuinely unique act, they really fill their own little space at the rock table expertly. A solid 5/6 from me.Definitely worth a listen, just maybe, steer clear of the Seagal box set before hand!"

    BEACH SLOTH: "Gespenst’s ‘The Bloodline’ has adrenaline rushing through its veins. This Malaysia band’s work has elements of Post-Rock and Classical brought together. Each song feels strong, in a literal power sense."

    SLEAVE STATE: ""The Bloodline" is simply everything a post rock album should be and they do it in a interesting way. The tunes makes me want to run cinematic with open arms at sunset, or if I would prefer to hide under the bed sobbing spirit that nothing will ever work out. I just know that "The Bloodline" would be the right soundtrack for the two."

    CALEIDOSCOOP: "The various parties and piano (electronic) strings provide not only with some regularity for the beautiful resting places, they do play the music with strong emotions. Thus they created a CD which includes both the hard and deep quiet moments that manages to hit. In all respects a very surprising album. Great class!"

  • BUM Murcia, 28-10-'11. Retorno a la adolescencia.

    29 okt 2011, 22:20 av Arantxa90

    Vie 28 Oct – Kaiser Chiefs, Second, SuperSubmarina, Nipples!

    Todo aquel que me conozca sabrá lo importantes que fueron Kaiser Chiefs y Second durante mi adolescencia. Fueron los primeros grupos, extranjero y español, de los que me hice fan, y todavía dura hasta día de hoy. Por ello, este concierto era tan especial para mí. Tal vez la crónica tenga un exceso de fangirlismo, pero para ser sincera, no tengo intención ninguna de ser objetiva en ella.

    Llegamos a Murcia casi a las 4 de la tarde, y después de descargar en el hotel, marchamos hacia la Plaza de Toros. Yo me esperaba cola, pero no había nadie, y hasta las 6 de la tarde no empezaron a aparecer los primeros asistentes. Como todavía no teníamos las entradas en nuestro poder (esto de que sólo se vendiesen en Murcia y nos las tuviesen que comprar no me gustó nada) y hasta las 7:40 no nos las trajeron, nos tuvimos que conformar viendo desde fuera cómo la gente entraba y entraba. Pero cuando por fin pudimos pasar, nos sorprendió que tampoco había tanta gente dentro... ¡incluso pudimos pillar primera fila! (eso sí, en el lateral izquierdo, justo delante de los altavoces).

    A las 8 de la tarde, puntualidad al poder, abrieron el concierto el grupo
    Nipples!, completamente desconocidos para mí. No pegaban mucho con el del resto de grupos de la noche, era más metalero... muy intenso. Sí, al principio me gustaron, pero como ese estilo la verdad es que no me va mucho, el resto de canciones me resultaron muy parecidas. Y teniendo en cuenta la posición en la que estábamos, nuestros oídos sufrieron bastante. Que no quiero decir que fuesen malos, ni mucho menos, solamente que no era lo que me esperaba. Destacar que se atrevieron con el Killing in the Name que todos conocíamos.

    Un poco antes de las 9 les tocó el turno a Supersubmarina, a los que veía por segunda vez, después de aquélla en Burjassot. Y la verdad es que se nota el cambio que han dado en estos dos años, tanto en el sentido musical y como en el del público que les acompaña. Tocaron canciones de Electroviral y Realimentación, y todos los asistentes cantábamos con ellos.
    Era el último concierto de la gira, nos lo recordaron. Les esperaremos a su vuelta.

    Entonces una pareja que estaba a nuestra derecha se marcharon (¿¡pero si queda lo mejor!?) y me faltó tiempo para ocupar sus sitios. Nuestra nueva situación estaba mucho más centrada en el escenario y abandonamos los altavoces que nos estaban dejando sordas.

    Cuando ya no me fijaba en la hora que era (la euforia y los nervios es lo que tienen), salieron al escenario Second. ¿Desde hace cuántos años los conozco? Desde 2004. ¿Cuántas veces los he visto en concierto? Si no contamos el acústico aquel de la Fnac en abril, ninguna. Ya tocaba. Y qué mejor oportunidad que verles en su tierra, en Murcia. Grandes, muy grandes, en serio, dándolo todo, superenérgicos. El concierto (corto corto) se basó en sus últimos dos discos, haciendo una excepción con Invisible. Piel de gallina, recuerdos de adolescencia. Lástima que haya desaparecido la fecha que tenían en Valencia.

    Y entonces, vino lo gordo. Lo mejor de lo mejor. Mi grupo favorito desde que los conocí con 15 años. Kaiser Chiefs. Aparecieron y ya fui feliz. Abrieron el concierto con Everyday I Love You Less and Less, empezaron fuertes. Pero es quedarse corta decir que "empezaron fuertes", porque el resto del concierto fue igual. Temazo tras temazo, no se dejaron un sólo hit en el bolsillo. Lo dieron todo. Con la de conciertos en los que he estado, y he de admitir que jamás había visto algo tan enérgico. Ricky corriendo de un lado al otro del escenario, saltando, bajando al público y lanzándose a él (maldito lado derecho, ¡ya se podía haber acercado más a dónde estábamos!), cantando toda Kinda Girl You Are pegado a la cámara (vimos la canción entera a través de las pantallas), subiéndose por los laterales del escenario en Take My Temperature... todo un show. Esto es lo que quiero yo cuando voy a un concierto. Y ellos me lo dieron.
    Maravillosa Man On Mars cantada por Nick y emoción con Love's Not a Competition (But I'm Winning), de lo más bonito que he escuchado en mucho tiempo. Y enloquecimiento general durante la mayor parte del concierto.
    17 canciones, alrededor de hora veinte minutos. Y se fueron. Ya espero con ansias la siguiente vez que les pueda ver, porque estoy segura que esta no va a ser la única.
    No pude conseguir la baqueta, al menos he vuelto a casa con un setlist.

    ¡Y no llovió!

    (La mitad de los videos están grabados con la cámara, cuyo sonido es pésimo; y la otra mitad con el movil, con una calidad de imagen un tanto dudosa).

















  • Marionette ID Release Their New Album "Alluvion" on Fluttery Records

    22 sep 2011, 16:12 av Velvetleaf

    Budapest's extraordinary band, Marionette ID release a new album. Alluvion is released by Fluttery Records.



    Fluttery Records starts autumn with new Marionette ID album "Alluvion". Marionette ID is a Hungarian post-metal /post-rock / post-hardcore band founded in 2008. After expanding to a greater audience, they played several European tours in 2010 and 2011. The bands appearance on many blogs, music websites made the label curious about the band and they have signed a recording agreement with Fluttery Records.

    The label started re-issuing their debut self-relase album "Emptiness Will Change Your Mind" in September 2010. The band and album received many good reviews. On a review on Sound As Language, the band received this comment "Subtle melodies are countered by moody instrumental passages and soothing vocals. Marionette ID possess an emotional weight and depth that truly set the band apart. This is post-hardcore at its most melodic and structured. Marionette ID are practicing a precision few bands dare to. If you are willing to give Emptiness Will Change Your Mind some time to grow, you will be richly rewarded." C.W.Ross said "It hard to pin down the style of music played by the band because it changes depending on what song or even what part of a song you're listening to at that particular time. You'll hear everything from Indie and modern rock to post rock, progressive and even jam band elements in the eight songs that make up 'Emptiness Will Change Your Mind' and he gave 8.25/10 to the album. Blues Bunny made the comment "An interesting album, therefore, that would have appeal for those who like melody in their rock music or for those who seek to go further than indie rock snack food."



    It was 2011 when Marionette ID started recording their new album. Alluvion was recorded in Budapest from January till June, 2011. In their seven track new album, Marionette ID still try to flirt with interesting structures, heavy sounds using elements of post metal.

    The album is highly recommended if you like Isis, Cult of Luna, Neurosis, Pelican, Russian Circles, Rosetta, Jesu, Tides From Nebula, Alcest, Mogwai, A Day to Remember, Alexisonfire, Enter Shikari, Escape the Fate, Thrice, Fugazi, , .

    Fluttery Records is an independent record label focusing on Post-rock, Ambient, Experimental, Electronic, Modern Classical music. The album is available on major music download stores like Itunes, Bandcamp, AmazonMP3, Napster and eMusic. The CD can be purchased from the Fluttery Records website. Also, all label releases can be streamed free on the label website.

  • Nudozurdo, Wah Wah Valencia, 1-4-'11

    2 apr 2011, 16:48 av Arantxa90

    Vie 1 Abr – Nudozurdo, modelo de respuesta polar

    Eran pasadas las 10 cuando entramos a la Wah Wah, y había poquita gente. Media hora más tarde, con un poco de público los teloneros, modelo de respuesta polar, ganadores del concurso de Maquetas Vinilo Valencia, salieron al escenario. Salvo que esté olvidando a alguien, he de decir que son los teloneros que más me han sorprendido. Gratamente, está claro. Había oído hablar de ellos, pero nunca había escuchado sus canciones, todo un error por mi parte. Melodías preciosas para unos temas que me tengo que escuchar en casa tranquilamente. Y el final del concierto fue emocionante, a dos guitarras y voz solamente… carne de gallina, en serio.
    Ante todo, quiero destacar la mala educación del público presente en el momento, casi todo el mundo hablaba y los murmullos hacían casi imposible disfrutar de la música. A hablar, a la calle, creo que el grupo que está en el escenario se merece un respeto.

    Sobre las 11:30 por fin comenzó el concierto de Nudozurdo. Primera fila, situación central, inmejorable. Comenzaron con El diablo fue bueno conmigo, última canción del último disco, preciosa pero sin voces femeninas (era de imaginar que no se va a llevar a las hermanas a toda la gira) para seguir con Prometo hacerte daño y Golden Gotelé. A continuación sonó Ha Sido Divertido, con la que parece que el público se animó un poco y cantó algo (hasta el momento, creo que la única persona de toda la sala que se sabía las canciones era yo). Siguieron mensajes muertos, Mil espejos (preciosa, maravillosa, perfecta) y prueba/error, primer y hasta el momento único single del último disco, alargando su final con distorsiones y guitarreos hasta empalmarla con utilízame. Y después del subidón, Dosis modernas, preciosa. Para finalizar, Dentro De Él y, cómo no, El hijo de Dios, de más de 10 minutos de duración, con la que el público volvió a revivir (¿qué pasa, que sólo vienen a verles por esta canción?). Y se marcharon. Pero aguantamos y, obviamente, volvieron a salir para tocar Láser love y Negativo. Y ahí sí que se acabó todo. Los asistentes nos mantuvimos en nuestros sitios, gritando y silbando, para que volvieran a salir, pero no hubo suerte.

    No nos dedicaron ni un “buenas noches” ni un “muchas gracias” ni nada, pero al final de la actuación se les veía visiblemente satisfechos. Buen trabajo, chicos.

    Cosas que eché en falta: un público más entregado (los empujones y estupideces de los que tenía a mi lado no cuentan) y No me toquéis. El resto, perfecto.

    Los videos no son de muy buena calidad, están grabados con el móvil.





  • En Plein Air's brand new self-titled 2011 album has been released

    25 mar 2011, 15:11 av Velvetleaf



    Critically acclaimed Italian post-rockers, En Plein Air release their self-titled full-length on Fluttery Records. The CD and the digital downloads are available. Also, listeners can stream all the songs free on the label website.

    Here is the link:
    http://www.flutteryrecords.com/flttry016.html

    En Plein Air is a post-rock band from Rome / Italy which differ from their peers by using violin, cello and piano in their unique way with guitars, base and drum. The band has already moved its instrumental voice out of their country with the help of their label, Fluttery Records (flutteryrecords.com) which is distributed from United States to the rest of the world.

    They have been signed to the label in Summer of 2008 and released their 4 song EP “L'alba Irradia L'inutile Parola” in February 2009. The EP got great reviews; The Silent Ballet said “En Plein Air seems to be commenting on this movement through their music: the strings represent the natural light, the drums and guitars are neutral, and the synthesizer, like the tube paint, represents the modern catalyst.” In Forty pointed on the strings “Sad elegance of an ever-pervasive violin. The EP is at its dreamy best when these disparate elements are given freedom to roam, moving the music away from more routine post-rock territory.” According to Beautiful Freaks “The result reminds various influences which the band doesn’t hide: Mogwai, Pink Floyd, Sigur Ros, Goodspeed You! Black Emperor not to mention a certain jazz and classic approach which gives elegants to the tunes. A suggestive cd which joins indie rock and ambience music, classicity and experimentation.” In another review, their music said to be “Smells like the wood of the ancient instruments projected into the future."



    After receiving great reviews around the world, En Plein Air started writing new songs for their debut album. They had experienced something awful while recording it; they left their instruments in the studio after the rehearsal, they discovered they were all stolen when they arrived the studio the next day. They haven't lost the will and went on recording the self titled debut in the Play Wave studio in Rome. Soon after the recording sessions, the album has been sent to Metropolis Studio in London, UK.

    They have released their debut full-length on March 20th, 2011 on Fluttery Records. The label owner Taner Torun says “En Plein Air have moved forward to another step with this album; all seven tracks are welcoming the new rising sun. Self titled album starts with calming piano entry and the song is followed with distorted guitars and violin climbing to the edge. Various instrumentation, various feelings follows. Guitars to strings, electronics to drums, each member collaborates to the beauty at their best.”

    The album can be purchased from Fluttery Records (flutteryrecords.com) and its distributed worldwide. Also, it is available for digital download in major download stores like Itunes, AmazonMP3, Bandcamp and Shockhound. Fluttery Records is an independent record label releasing Post-rock, Ambient, Experimental, Electronic, Modern Classical music. All the songs can be streamed free on the label website.
