Tyranny Is Tyranny

April 30th, 2015 / Comments Off on Tyranny Is Tyranny / by Mog/

Tyranny Is Tyranny Profile

Tyranny Is Tyranny is a Madison WI post-noiserock band focusing on dynamics, repetition, and the dismantling of capitalism — former members of [ The United Sons Of Toil ] laying down long-form slabs of bleak dynamics and left-wing outrage. Slather yourself in despair. Tyranny Is Tyranny is the title of the fourth chapter of Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States.”

“We were not born critical of existing society. There was a moment in our lives (or a month, or a year) when certain facts appeared before us, startled us, and then caused us to question beliefs that were strongly fixed in our consciousness — embedded there by years of family prejudices, orthodox schooling, imbibing of newspapers, radio, and television. This would seem to lead to a simple conclusion: that we all have an enormous responsibility to bring to the attention of others information they do not have, which has the potential of causing them to rethink long-held ideas.” __[ Howard Zinn ].

MEMBERS ARE:

Ben Aldis: Drums
Jason Jensen: Guitar, Vocals
M. Guy Ficcioto: Bass, Vocals
Russell Emerson Hall: Guitar, Vocals

RIYL: [ Light Bearer ], [ Isis ], and [ Amphetamine Reptile Records ].

Solkyri

April 30th, 2015 / Comments Off on Solkyri / by Mog/

Solkyri Profile

Solkyri are a post‐rock band from Sydney, Australia. Combining subtle ambient textures, crushing distortions and pulsating walls of sound, this album forms a beautiful yet haunting brand of captivating instrumental rock music. In February 2011, Solkyri released their debut EP titled ’No House’ . Since releasing their debut EP, Solkyri have established themselves as one of Australia’s best new instrumental bands. With airplay on Triple J and community radio, the band have toured with the heavyweights of the experimental scene including sleepmakeswaves, Laura, Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and Meniscus, as well as headlining their own club shows along the east coast.

’Are You My Brother?’ is the band’s debut album and it was released through Bird’s Robe Records on May 7, 2013. This album makes use of a plethora of instruments and tone colours to paint a vivid picture that encompasses a myriad of colour and mood. ’Are You My Brother?’ displays the band’s intention to experiment musically outside of the world of post-rock, whilst still paying homage to all that is beautiful about the genre.

Australian quartet Adam, Andrew, Nic’ and Ryan’s music somehow accommodate the perfect vibes in a cozy way, the noises the band create is largely fitting since Australian artists do have the propensity to flirt with high emotional tunes. “Sad Boys Club” is Sydneysiders Solkyri latest release. Following the same trend of the previous two releases except with a slight alteration on the distortion, wah-wah side and the aggressiveness / speed tempos Solkyri zoom into the post-rock bliss again, re-instating its endeavour to keep a neat yet wavy ambiance. One of the most alluring facts is, if you glance at the artist web pages, you’ll notice that the band discloses only two releases prior to “Sad Boys Club”, the first release “No House” dates back to Feb’ 2011. So clearly we are not referring to an alias that’s been around for decades. But yet, the level of emotional noises and experience-figure they’ve gathered on “Sad Boys Club”, you’d have the impression that the outfit has been in the music-making for a couple of decades at least.

From the start of its musical career Solkyri’s focuses its entire energy on a quite melancholic atmosphere. Aiming at the approach of fluctuating between fragile reflection and powerful distortion, as well as intermittently topping odd elements and instruments on every album in the effort of having a rare piece, it is of no surprise the band musicianship, songs writing ability and details arrangements differs from release to release. And by doing so the band has successfully managed to create a solid buzz in its four years of existence. That in mind whatever instruments or sound you come across, let it be guitars, percussion edges, ambient snippets, synth / piano pinches, distortions walls or flute-like waves, Solkyri’s strength lies in its pride of creating sensitive tunes with beautiful melodies that most of the time lead to soulful and touching effect.

Let’s face it, the Australian post-rock scene as we know it, forever surprises us with the number of instrumental acts that surfaces from various part of the continent. To name but just a few [ The Boats ], [ Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving ], [ Laura ], [ Nikko ], [ Sleepmkeswaves ], [ Screens ] and [ Lander Configurations ], all of which are extremely good AU outfits but if you are someone who somehow emphasize quite a bit on band location, you’ll most likely find Solkyri to be one of your top five addition on the list. The band free-flowing style signature and melodic air is magnificently plastered and truth be told the quartet go as far as putting the rock back into post-rock with cinematic songs structures. If you are an instrumental band residing in Australia and has been making some beautiful distortion-waves around, you are bound to be compared to [ Sleepmakeswaves ] or [ Lander Configurations ] just like if are an instrumental band living in Texas, chances to be crossed reference with [ Explosions In The Sky ] is simply inevitable. And that usually happens in a flash, even if it isn’t all accurate, that said Solkyri have always been their own act since the beginning, they’ve grown darker and noisier, and on their third full length album “Sad Boys Club”, it’s more like they’ve expanded their post-rock structures into something that’s even deeper and more experimental but also maintains a strong sensational pull.

Solkyri’s do not predominantly rely on huge climaxes to create something beautiful, even though it’s quite apparent “Sad Boys Club” built its grandeur solely from its flawlessness’, with loads of instrumental drifts and noise shifting sequences that make the album bigger moments seem even more massive. Similar to an illusion-cut diamond to make it looks bigger and heavier, I’d highly recommend listening to “Sad Boys Club” via headphones since one can catch all the small bits and pieces far better. The composers in this particular case did not reinvent the wheel here but instead they gave instrumental post-rock music and entirely new makeover and that’s not a negative critic. This record follows the band 2013 title “Are You My Brother?” It comes with some uplifting melancholic atmospheres and crushing instrumentals waves, which by the way is expected from Solkyri, but the connection with its listeners are more in depth and far more personal than in the past. The one thing you’ll notice (if you’ve been a Solkyri’s follower) is that the band isn’t afraid to explore extended-noises for extended euphoric moments, as the instruments slowly falls in place.

The ocean is made up of dreams and achievements, My mind lies in the heart of the ocean.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor [ GYBE ]

April 30th, 2015 / Comments Off on Godspeed You! Black Emperor [ GYBE ] / by Mog/

Godspeed You! Black Emperor Profile

Godspeed You! Black Emperor began with Efrim, Mauro and Moya in the early 90s, playing a handful of shows and recording a self-released cassette as a trio before deciding to transform the group into a large band. Recruiting numerous Montreal musicians through 1995-1996, GYBE mounted sense-rattling wall-of-sound performances, featuring as many as 14 musicians and several 16mm film projectors, before recording their debut vinyl-only Constellation album in 1997. They transformed a warehouse space into the Hotel2Tango, a DIY hive of activity with band rehearsal rooms, silkscreen and wood shops, and weekend shows that took place under the radar.

The group settled into a permanent nine-member line-up by late 1998, with Aidan and Bruce on drums, Thierry and Mauro on basses, Efrim, Dave and Roger on guitars, and Norsola and Sophie on cello and violin respectively. The band toured and recorded incessantly from 1998-2002 and gained a reputation for mesmerizing live shows marked by orchestral dynamics, epic rock power and clunky, beautiful film loops. After four records, GYBE announced an indefinite hiatus in 2003; which lasted until December 2010, when the band returned to curate and performs at All Tomorrow’s Parties in the UK, followed by extensive international touring. October 2012 saw the release of ‘ALLELUJAH! DON’T BEND! ASCEND!, their first recorded work in a decade, to widespread critical acclaim.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor (GYBE) returns with its first single LP-length release since the group’s earliest days in 1997-99. ‘Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress’ clocks in at a succinct 40:23 and is arguably the most focused and best-sounding recording of the band’s career. Working with sound engineer Greg Norman (Electrical Audio) at studios in North Carolina and Montreal, GYBE slowly and steadily put the new album together through late 2013 and 2014, emerging with a mighty slab of superlative sonics, shot through with all the band’s inimitable signposts and touchstones: huge unison riffage, savage noise/drone, oscillating overtones, guitar vs. string counterpoint, inexorable crescendos and scorched-earth transitions.

Following Godspeed’s return from a long hiatus at the end of 2010 to begin playing live shows again, and with the hugely acclaimed ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! release in 2012 marking their first new release in a decade, the group continued to perform regularly on their own headlining tours (and as headliners at many leading festivals), often including a new multi-movement piece in concert over the past couple of years. Known to fans and through live show recordings by the sobriquet “Behemoth”, GYBE has gradually distilled this new work down to a fastidious and uncompromising essence in the studio, with the swing-time swagger of the opening unison riff in “Peasantry or ‘Light! Inside of Light!'” giving way to increasing microtonal divergences and an exhilarating immersion in the harmonic power of massed amplified instruments, before collapsing into some of the most visceral and unalloyed noise/drone the band has yet committed to tape on “Lambs’ Breath” and “’Asunder, Sweet’”. The album closes with “Piss Crowns Are Trebled”, a classic 14-minute piece of vintage Godspeed, where ascending and descending guitar and violin melodies intertwine over gut-rattling distorted bass in 3/4 time, segueing into a pummeling four-on-the-floor series of sparkling, soaring crescendos

‘Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress’ finds Godspeed in top form; a sterling celebration of the band’s awesome dialectic, where composition, emotion and ‘note-choice’ is inextricable from an exacting focus on tone, timbre, resonance and the sheer materiality of sound. The album is available on 180 gram vinyl in a gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeve and insert poster, on CD in a 100% recycled custom paperboard jacket, and on all manner of formats in our fractured digital marketplace.
