I haven’t found any “post-rock” type stuff I’ve particularly liked for a long time. Having been sent SO many Explosions-in-the-sky-ripoffs I’ve been put off the whole thing. A Egg‘s tracks might well be what turns me back to listening to it. Its just 1 guy, its all produced with samples apart from the guitar and bass. There’s a bit of auto-tuned / chopped up vocal too. Quite innovative.
Personal favourites: Somewhere Nice, Rostov could get it (Alright The Captain remix), Randy Jackson, Archway
Enjoy, spread the word
Its time for everyone to take note in your diaries. On Thursday March 17th, the stunning Kontakte are to launch their next full length album We Move Through Negative Spaces via Drifting Falling Records at Vibe Bar on Brick Lane (London). Stream the album in its entirety HERE
Let me say for now that the prospect of seeing them gets more exciting by the day and that their live show (with visuals!!) is a fantastic mix of electronica, soundscapes, good old fashion post-rock, beautiful, delicate guitar melodies and thunderous walls of sound. THE ULTIMATE CINEMATIC MUSIC EXPERIENCE. And not only is there something for everyone to enjoy in Kontakte, the rest of the line up also features some mighty artists especially chosen to complement the occasion.
IAMBIC from Brighton whose music blends neo-classical elements with electronica. IAMBIC made the amazing remix of Distant Street Lights featured on Codes In The Clouds‘ Paper Canyon Recycled album released last November. Check it out here.
Also on the bill are Wild Dogs In Winter, a band signed to Gravid Hands Records along side cinematic popsters Fighting Kites. Think Sigur Ros crossed with Do Make Say Think – that Canadian lot from the Godspeed You! Black Emperor days.
And finally we have some newbies on the scene Waking Aida. They’re getting quite a lot of attention on the south coast so we thought we’d give them the opportunity to play to the London crowd.
Advance tickets are only £5 so grab em here: wegottickets
Dead Red Sun are a London based instrumental 3 piece. Think post-math-rock. They’ve been busy recording and this is a teaser for whats in store! You can download the track by following the link above. Why not right, its free.
They’re playing at Vibe Bar this Thursday with none other than Talons!
