The result is pure harmony, beauty and a wing for atmosphere, space and time.

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!"

Collaboration with American poet Matt Finney became a separate heavier and darker sounding project. “Air” is his 6 song album: cinematic sad music, strings moving around the central piano motifs which are minimalistic. Power of light touches, the ambience, the echo and the sense.

Está aí uma banda que não é daquelas que se destacam no debut e depois somem. o folk do Fleet Foxes está mais atraente que nunca! Se continuar neste nível em seus próximos lançamentos terá um futuro esplêndido pela frente. Destaques: Sim Sala Bim, Helplessness Blues, The Shrine / An Argument

Álbuns clássicos de “art rock” como os que o Yes e Genesis fizeram ainda existem hoje em dia! Phideaux está aí para mostrar que em 2011 o Prog de raíz está firme e forte. Encontramos tudo o que uma obra-prima de Rock Progressivo necessita aqui. Em faixas épicas divididas em partes com momentos de tirar o fôlego e digna de várias ouvidas para apreciação total. Destaques: Snowtorch (Part. I), Snowtorch (Part. II), Helix
2011 foi O ano de Devin Townsend. Dois álbuns lançados e finalização de seu projeto. Deconstruction é simplesmente o melhor álbum de toda sua carreira. Épico, sarcástico, apocalíptico.

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.

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.
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.
