Cravagoide

March 31st, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Cravagoide Profile

[ Cravagoide ] is an ambient IDM duo formed in Italy in 2010. The team is composed of Dragoide and Arthur Cravan, both from the same netlabel Suonofantasma. Dragoide has a warm melodic sound, characterized by dreamy and melancholy melodies, Arthur Cravan has an harsher composition with gloomy vibes and complex rhythms. The styles blend nicely together into a dreamscape ambient with a nostalgic feeling.

After releasing their debut album “Arborea” in 2012, Cravagoide started working on more complex layering techniques, headed for a tension between mild and enveloping sounds collapsing with unquiet and fractionated melodies. Empy Frame describes the absence of a detail, and that missing piece reminds by litotes a nostalgic and dreamlike sensation in which anyone can see a piece of his own inner life. The tunes of this album elapse away gliding into silence, imploding in empty fragments and echoing removed instruments that become the story of a surround without the innermost.

AND HERE GOES AN [ ITALIAN REVIEW ] ON EMPTY FRAME

[ Arborea ]. Slower than the traditional Electronic Dance Music [ Cravagoide ] plays an easy drums pattern over some dark-ambient tunes. Sometimes the beats are simple and easy yet quite dark and at times it tend to get slightly more complicated and more featured instead of being in the background. Although [ Cravagoide ] music style fits well in the world of ambient and down-tempo but the music itself encompasses a wider variety of styles and chilling atmospheres. “Arborea” is definitely worth the shot. GO GET IT.

Grimmsons

March 31st, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Grimmsons Profile

Grimmsons is a five piece from the Antwerp area. The origins of this band are common enough: 5 people from the same area getting into a rehearsal bunk to make music. What happens then is less common, because being in a band is all about chemistry. Sure enough, you can hear all the different influences: from post-rock, to sludge to new wave and post-punk. But it is just not possible to pin down Grimmsons to one particular genre. That’s why, when asked, we rather describe our band as intense, heart felt and loud.

Our aim is to play live as much as possible, to reach as many souls as possible. Make good records in between. Rather than to align ourselves to a certain scene, we look for a musical common ground that brings our message across and represents what we feel what we want to say. Our self-titled debut EP, which was released march 2014, was recorded, mixed and mastered by Frank Rotthier and Chris Common ( who is know for working with [ Pelican ], [ Palms ], [ Chelsea ], [ Wolfe ], etc… ). Their approach proved to be the right one to capture Grimmson’s sound.

THE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO
OFF THE UP-COMING 2015 ALBUM

Now this is the kind of music / noise that will make you think, the noise will bring many other monikers to mind but my advice is to let go, don’t think or stress to much about, don’t even try to match the noise with other aliases you know of, just listen and grasp the awesomeness of the noise to its fullest.

Silver Screen Orchestra [ S2O ]

March 31st, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

s2o  Profile

BIOGRAPHY

Silver Screen Orchestra also known as [ s2o ] is an American instrumental duo that began in 2011. The band uses public domain footage as the inspiration for it’s musical works. Nathan Stewart & Kayla Breitwieser, both members of SC post-rock band Pan, began playing music together after forming a relationship in late 2011. Their common interest in instrumental music, along with their similar style of composition, lead to early recordings and a desire to develop a more sophisticated sound.

Incorporating a visual component became a staple of each composition–in some cases, helping to develop the song’s movements and purpose. In the summer of 2014, S2O ventured to Montreal to record their first EP with Howard Bilerman of Hotel2Tango. It is available for purchase at any of their live shows as well as at their Bandcamp page.

In March the travels took the band around the low country and upstate of South Carolina/Georgia. Nate and Kayla spent time in Greenville, Hilton Head, and Savannah learning the in’s and out’s of camper-living while still playing music and working full time. They practiced with their full studio set-up for the first time in the camper, learned how to dump their black water tanks (gross!), and dealt with some of the hard truths of the lifestyle that they’ve chosen (who knew a constant wifi signal would be so difficult to manage!). The band love doing this together and the music they create help them to balance the positives and negatives. Keep sending those good vibes our way!

Silver Screen Orchestra
Self-Title Album
Release Date: 11th September 2014

Recorded in Montreal, QC with Howard Bilerman of [ Hotel2Tango ].
Mastered by Harris Newman of [ Grey Market Mastering ].
In honor of Nicholas Chase Stewart,
Silver Screen Orchestra Debut Self-Title Is Available On BandCamp For $ 1

s2o is [ Nathan Stewart: Electric Guitar ] and [ Kayla Breitwieser: Violin ]. Nathan S and Kayla B crisp new album coming out September 11th is both eerie and soothing. It is the perfect formula inducing to well-written songs that introduces some sort of music-refuge. Buried deep in orchestral-like elements and the odd fanciful dreamlike drone’s qualities unfolds heart warmth images that fade and reshape in an audible pattern. Silver Screen Orchestra also known as s2o, debut S/T album is soothed in memories, the kind that you won’t dare reshaping in any form, not even for a single moment, as you would want them to stays with you for a lifetime.

Emotionally bulky and well equipped with darkness, you can feel the tension in each pull of the guitar strings as you would equally feel the ease and peace in each and every violin chords. Drawn in its composition, which is largely and precisely driven by the duo’s imagination and insight in experimental music’s, Silver Screen Orchestra is an abstract experimental work of art that requires one’s undivided attention before it can begin to dished out bonuses. Packed with 4 movements where each one of them exceeds the quarter of an hour marks, you bet you about to tap in some sort of experimental / post-something berceuse.

While all this may seems like news to many of us, but let’s face it, s2o duo started back in 2011 and digitally released their live performance on the 2nd of July 2014, which is now followed by the band debut self-title album. And while the shape and shadows of the band took place in 2011 based on similar interest in music style from both members as well as the formation of a new relation, Nathan and Kayla has been around for a while as members of the SC post-rock band Pan. So rest assure as their unique blend of experimental post-rock were forged long ago.

However, the only news here is that this debut album takes a sharper form and a bulkier weight by focussing on intimate sweeping melodies that are woven precisely underneath a new-age 21st century noise surface. The type of sprawling noises that attribute a strong form of confidence and that makes it all worth the listen. Well after all this is a damn good album inspired by… ‘obviously’ a lot of good music around. Believe it or not ALL tracks on this release are as haunting as memorable. There isn’t a lot to say here except that the duo pretty much nailed it in to a bursting exasperation of fairness.

I have always wanted to quote the following words from [ Mogwai – Young Team ] and I simply cannot find a better album to do so. So here it is, “Yes I am A Long Way From Home”. ‘Cause this music can put a human being in a trance like state and deprive it for the sneaking feeling of existing. ‘Cause music is bigger than words and wider than pictures. If someone said that Mogwai are the stars, I would not object. If the stars had a sound, it would sound like this. The punishment for these solemn words can be hard. Can blood boil like this at the sound of a noisy tape that I’ve heard? I know one thing. On Saturday, the sky will crumble together (or something) with a huge bang to fit into the cave. Thus… Let The Music Speak For Itself.
