There Is No Teenage Love

October 31st, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

There Is No Teenage Love Profile

Los Angeles ambient duo There Is No Teenage Love return with homage to their city: LAHEX. In the fall of 2012, There Is No Teenage Love (David J Dowling and Erik Tokle) self-released their eponymous debut, earning praise from bloggers across the globe and plays from the likes of Jimmy Tamborello (The Postal Service), and L.A.’s KCRW. Now, almost exactly 2 years later, they are back with LAHEX, a cinematic love-letter to their adoptive home of Los Angeles.

A minimal symphony of looped guitars, reverberant drones and rhythmic delays, LAHEX is equally at home in the relentless sun or in the late-night, sodium-light-un-blackness of the city — a ‘concept album’ that is heartbreaking when you need it to be, lonesome when you want it to be, and blissful when you allow it to be.

LAHEX is available as a limited-edition white vinyl record with instant digital download (plus a bonus track). The record comes in a heavyweight violet sleeve within a metallic silver jacket. Unadorned by type and suitable for framing, the cover features a 12,000 year old saber-toothed cat skull from L.A.’s La Brea Tar Pits, photographed exclusively for this album.

Some praise for the debut record [ English & French ].

‘Avec ses drones éthérées, sa guitare en apesanteur aux contours nappés de reverb, ses orgues majestueux et ses traînées de synthés sans âge au romantisme diffus (à moins que tout cela ne soit le fruit de manipulations guitaristes dignes de l’élégance light d’un Christopher Willits?), on imagine aisément l’effet que doit procurer l’écoute de There Is No Teenage Love au lever du soleil sur un océan à perte de vue.’ ___[ Indie Rock Mag (France) ].

‘This is music played by human musicians, and although it avoids any obvious discursive, linear tokens of self-expression, it still sounds like the work of human hands and hearts. There is care and effort in every moment, an understanding of physical instrumental resources without which this music could be nothing like as nuanced and precisely judged.’ ___[ Oliver Arditi (UK) ].

LAHEX
By: There Is No Teenage Love
Release Date OCTOBER 28 2014
SOUNDSCAPES FOR THE POST-EVERYTHING ERA.

Straight to it… “LAHEX” the latest cover by [ There Is No Teenage Love ] is an absolute must have for ambient collectors. The album reflect an airy, voluminous ambiance, molding darkness and echoing sound together in the form of a cushion-like material with shades of bleary lines and fuzziness. The entire album is largely driven by electric guitars and distortion coupled with electronic/synths on seldom occasions, turning into a stream-delight.

Point blank, classifying [ There Is No Teenage Love ] music in to a specific genre can be a little tricky in this particular instance. Well yes… while it’s certainly safe to say, ambient sound in its very depth, the moving textures and the originality elaborate even further and deeper as oppose to your usual average ambient monikers. That said if I were to personally draw some comparison, just to give you a head’s up as to what you are getting in to, which by the way is indeed a difficult notion, as the sound originality is so ecstatic, still… I’ll probably bring the likes of [ 36 ] awesomeness, [ Tim Hecker’s ] experimental air, [ Celar’s ] mindspcaing power and [ Barn Owl’s ] audible drones ALL in the equation.

“Lahex” truly introduces flourished textures and disintegrated shortwave corresponding to frequencies over and above 1600 kilohertz with static motion, paving the way for something unique and original in an articulated sound form. While most part of “Lahex” is executed in the aim of building a subtle motion, as you dive deeper and deeper you’ll soon notice the album unfolding a darker and a more melancholy side to it. This darker and heavier atmosphere untangled itself equally in subtlety as we reach “After The Films” movement and on-wards. There on, repletion echoes and repetition of sound produced by the reflection of its sound waves are to be expected in indulgence.

Touching up on “Lahex IV & V”, movement six on the album, which is one of my favorite track, actually I’m probably saying movement six is my favorite track simply because I am listening to it right now, truth be told the whole playlist are equally euphoric with delicate chime, strings note piercing the air while unsettling electronic/synths and long-waves echoes dissipating to flawless swing before transgressing to some solid type of drones.

Let it be for a late-night listening or a Sunday afternoon gathering, this album is a perfect listen for various occasions, with its fuzzy drones, its seemingly endless multi-textural surface that tends to sooth the atmospheres in the most chilling path, the music on “Lahex” holds up very well. In seven pieces where crackling noises breath softly along some breath-taking melodies, both executed by guitar loops and distorted fragments that emerge in waves forms, there is no better ending but in a lush, atmospheric-ambiance of the most satisfying kind. [ GO GET IT ].

heklAa  Profile

[ heklAa ] is a 37 years old French composer, influenced by post-rock, jazz and movie-music. His musical project is called [ heklAa ], Songs in F is his first self-produced EP. The 4 tracks talk about my trip in Iceland in April 2010, as he was stuck “thanks to” the eruption of the with-the-unpronounceable-name volcano. He is also working on his first album “My Name is John Murdoch”, inspired by the best movie ever “Dark City”.

heklAa – My Name Is John Murdoch
Release Date 31st OCTOBER 2014
All songs are composed, arranged and produced by heklAa.
Recorded in the (home) studio “am Tanzplatz”, Ingersheim, France
THIS ALBUM IS FULLY / UTTERLY INSPIRED BY THE MOVIE [ DARK CITY ]

REVIEW

heklAa’s newest title [ My Name Is John Murdoch ] which is the follow-up album of [ Songs In F ] disentangled an artistic rhymes colliding with post-classical universe in an explosive manner. Strangely different, yet aggressively beautiful with piano keys administering the record’s melodic groundwork all the way, this new title is about to find a special place in every listeners heart. I usually don’t say the following on albums that come my way for reviews but this new release reflect so much to being exactly what I look for in an album that it makes it difficult for me to review. I am so overwhelmed with its beauty and its shining facets that the sound literally takes my focus away from writing. That’s how gorgeous [ My Name Is John Murdoch ] is.

The most compensating and refreshing part of heklAa’s work on this new release is the integration-flow in which he assembles various conventional and unconventional sounds all together. Yes… while most of the part, the artist focusses on seductive background piano keys and by that I am referring to the dark one’s, coupled with long and constant rhythmic guitars on the front-end with echoing drums and crashing waves, reminiscent to the likes of [ Mamiffer ] and [ Cicada ] at the same time, HeklAa’s sound brings a myriad of emotions in one spot.

This new album attribute so much in terms of sound and atmospheres, themes and colours, emotions and tonalities that it intersects a place where fans of [ Seskamol ], [ The Best Pessimist ], [ Line Gate ] and even extremist minded [ Godspeed You! Black Emperor ] and [ 65DOS ] fans will all enjoy. The music is dramatic, epic, melancholy and it contain a bit for everyone. [ My Name Is John Murdoch ] circled around 9 songs, the album opens up with an intro-like piece cleverly title “Générique” and end’s with “Epilogue”, in between there’s seven track in the form of an episode each. Perfect arrangement, must I add.

So guys be ready to embrace [ heklAa’s ] latest album where compositions seem to unravel magically, divulging mysteries at a constant pace that requires neither patience nor tolerance. It is true that sometime music characterized one’s personality and everything you need to know about Sébastien dwells in the very depth on his music itself. The reward on “My Name Is John Murdoch” is a rare manifestation in sound. Aggressively pretty and artfully haunting, undercurrent of profound sadness constantly agitates beneath the surface.

In a nutshell “My Name Is John Murdoch” builds-up progressively in an appealing way and in no time, appearance of soaring guitars, electronic / computerize electronic element in the form of drum hits, and echoing bells are all over the place. Over the next hour you’ll hear melodies battling with noises through and through, constantly trying to find a point of understanding. This struggle between light and dark and these oppositions in the end mostly found a common ground in memorable episodes of fascinating scene. Once again, for the 2nd time on [ heklAa’s ] releases ( Straight 10 Out Of 10 ).

THE ALBUM

The album is inspired by one of my favorite movies: “Dark City”. It should not to be considered as an unofficial soundtrack of the existing movie but as an official soundtrack of an unofficial version of the movie! I have started to work on this album two years ago. The obsessions and questions of the protagonist are partly mine: loss of childhood, nostalgia, self-discovery, Miles Davis’ “Générique”… Beyond “Dark City”, there are many references to other works (Tim Burton’s “Batman”, Edward Hopper, Miles Davis…)

THE STORY

The movie tells the story of John Murdoch, a music journalist, expert of Miles Davis’ work. After years, he comes back in sirenZ, the big city where he grew up, to cover a set of jazz concerts. As he is walking along the main street, he has the strange feeling that nothing is like it used to be. Did the city change so much? Did he change so much? Did time just go by? (Episode 1: The Dark City of sirenZ)

A whole series of events is going to intensify his conviction that something is wrong: that beautiful woman he meets in the “Hopper’s bar”; he does not know any Selina Kyle, but he could swear that he knows that woman, like a reminiscence from yesteryears, he knows that he had dinner once with her, that they have spent the night after that together, too. (Episode 2: L’Inconnue ) There is also this original recording of Miles Davis’ soundtrack for “Elevator of the Gallows” that he finds in an old music store; as an expert, he knows full well that this milestone in jazz was celebrated in 1958. “Générique”, the perfection of music according to John, this permanent catchy tune in his head could not be just a creation of his own mind. But, the calendar in the store still indicates that John is living in the year 1946… Last but not least, in place of Miles Davis’ music, John discovers a recording made by a Louis Malville who introduces himself as a French movie director. Louis reveals that sirenZ is a shameless lie, a Dark City like many others, where nothing is real. (Générique)

Nothing? What about Shell Beach, this sunny happy place of his childhood, where he used to fly a kite or go sailing and fishing with his father? So many memories of brighter times… (Episode 5: Remembering Shell Beach)

After days of investigating, at last, John finds out the truth, as he is walking by a souvenir shop. Behind the window, a glass snow ball representing sirenZ. He understands, terrified, that this is not just a trinket for tourists, but reality: The city is lying in the depths of the sea, under a giant bell. (Episode 3: The Dome) Shell Beach does exist, but only in his head, nothing more than pretty pictures in a photo album. Why? When? How? John will never get the answer. (Episode 4: Dance with the Shadows)

John’s world has collapsed. (Ep 7: Say hurray! ‘cause it’s the End of the World!). Now that he knows the whole truth, what comes next? Should he tell everything and run the risk of becoming a curse, an incurable decease for everyone in the city? Should he just live a normal, quiet life by the woman he loves? No, he will not be a tragic hero. He knows who he is. (Episode 6: My name is John Murdoch). Selina is waiting for him.

The Gary

October 31st, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

The Gary Profile

“Chub, the formidable first release from this Austin, TX-based trio, does itself a disservice by presenting itself as an EP. There’s more substance to be found in these seven songs than most double-LP concept albums. It’s raw, impassioned, straight-from-the-heart garage rock intended to serve as the vehicle for the world-weary philosophies of the sage presiding over a dark corner of a half-forgotten barroom: “Here lays the sum of his belongings / Here lays the weight of his opinions / Here lays the cold shell of a vain man / Whose legacy burns off like fog / Here lays another sad delusion / Here lays another bitter sunset,” scorns bassist and frontman Dave Norwood on “Nine Oh Five” as he muses over “your headstone,” the second-person addressee never being named outright.

The music here, as on other tracks, is a rough-and-tumble amalgam of Silkworm, Pavement, and Sonic Youth, unpredictable and unpolished and all the better for it, as when Norwood’s bass slips briefly out of tune (deliberately, it would seem) following the second verse of “I May Have a Drink,” a fittingly taunting response to his semi-rhetorical plea, “Tell me it passes / Assure me it passes.” His delivery throughout is the restrained Sprechgesang of Ian Curtis or Johnny Cash, something that exists between everyday speech, a poetry reading, and melodic meditation. In fact everything — drums, bass, lead guitar, lyrics, sallies and retreats — coheres; amazing to think these three had only been playing together for half a year before this was set to tape.

The Gary’s still-untitled debut full-length, due in November on the same label, deserves to be one of the most anticipated of the year. Intelligent, honest, unpretentious, stirring, grassroots indie rock like this doesn’t come along as often as PR reps would like to have us think.” – Eric J. Iannelli, INK19

FAREWELL FOOLISH OBJECTS

Is the fifth album by the other little old band from Texas, The Gary. This time around, we find them battered and bruised from loves lost and lives rearranged, but steadfastly vertical and plodding forward. Songs of insomnia, divorce, urban sprawl, strange childhood memories, bombastic arrival, cautious optimism, possibility, and a Mountain Goats cover for good measure.

The Gary began in 2008 as an informal gathering three friends with instruments, with no more ambition than to get together and break up the monotony of the workweek. Somewhere, between the discussions of music, family, favorite beer, and job-related woe, songs began to form, resulting in the Chub EP. Songs continued to accumulate, and an LP materialized- 2010’s Logan. The album was well-received, and The Gary began taking their act on the road. While in Chicago, they checked into Electrical Audio studios and recorded a session with Steve Albini. This was released in early 2011 as El Camino. Their next album, Remains, followed shortly after in fall 2012, along with a European tour and a string of dates with Mission Of Burma. 2014’s Farewell Foolish Objects is their second release on Sick Room Records. The Gary is Dave Norwood (bass/vocals), Trey Pool (guitar), and Paul Warner (drums).

Released 28 October 2014

Recorded 9/13 and 3/14 at by Chico Jones at Ohm Recording Facility in Austin TX. Mastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service. Thank you Ryan, Bob, and Chico. Thank you friends, family, and well-wishers. The Gary is Dave Norwood (bass, vocals), Trey Pool (guitar), and Paul Warner (drums). Laura Bianco played violin on Fall From High and Original Air-Blue Gown.

Thy Veils

October 31st, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

Thy Veils Profile

Thy Veils is a project that became a name, a concept turned into style, a minimalist and complex meditation. Born out of the reality of the past millennium, nurtured by digital media expression and communication, Thy Veils’ art speaks through dense vision about exploration, experimentation and the Search through the sphere of the undefined, of movement in the quantum. Thy Veils started out as studio project in 1995, headed by Daniel Dorobantu, and became a pioneering name in the Romanian ambient music scene. Thy Veils had 4 studio albums produced by 2008, a DVD with non-narrative video-essays, collaborations with various artists as well as collaborating on music composition for film. Always up to date on the latest digital means available, always collaborating and communicating, Thy Veils becomes a respected name on the world artistic scene almost over-night. In 2008, after travelling to New Zealand, Daniel Dorobantu changes his working methods, abandoning composing in favor of improvisation, transforming Thy Veils from a studio project into an ensemble.

The first public appearances follow, in various band line-ups – audio-visual-electro-acoustic events, transport the auditorium, leaving them circling the unfathomable depths of empathic comprehension and contemplation found only in the abyss. The year 2010 kicks off with a new Thy Veils record, imbibed this time with Japanese spirit, emanating attention to detail, inspirational refinement and a touch that came about through Daniel’s experiences one year beforehand, in Kyoto.

A sound continuum, a perfectly guided waterfall, gliding over and through ancient canyon rocks, filtered by a thick layer of moss, lichen and underwater plants; just to be purged by the immaculately white cherry blossom. Senseless and purposeless in appearance, Daniel Dorobantu and his group sends out a mysterious invitation, enticing one and all to enter the labyrinth of diffuse skeletal tones that step on meandering fog, travelling through unctuous diffusion, that lacks contour, onto flowing light weaved by strands of trans-substantial vacuum. The inspiration is enhanced and renewed by different collaborations and Thy Veils surpasses the limits of the ambient scene. Daniel authors the music for contemporary dance performance artist Yin Yue (Shanghai, New York), collaboration which is taken notice by in the New York Times and The Guardian, publications that give speak to the general public about the Thy Veils name and band.

In 2010, outside of the band, and with the help of the Romanian Cultural Institute in Vienna, Daniel Dorobantu collaborates with Austrian artist Michaela Konrad and creates the inter-media installation “Memories of Now”, unveiled at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, a cathedral of contemporary electronic art. Inaugurated in 1996 and radically reconfigured in 2008, after an investment of nearly 30 million Euro, Ars Electronica Center Linz is at the forefront of the electronic art world and also a laboratory of experimental electronic art, positioned at the frontier of art, technology and society. Beginning with March 2011, “Memories of Now” is part of the Ars Electronica Center collection and is included in the permanent section named Deep Space, an ultra-modern exhibition space destined for digital art, with a HD projection surface of 288 m2.

A unique and cohesive creation on the Romanian artistic scene and not only, touching on atonal composition, sometimes becoming asymptomatic and approaching a serialized nature in order for it to escape the shackles of dodecaphonic harmonies, Thy Veils’ music is a true creative endeavor that borders the romantic beginnings of creation; experimenting with nostalgic nihilism on their first albums. This will later become suffused with a tropism indigenous to the fluid nature of sea fog, swept by solitary winds that thin the veils of synesthetic clouds.

< < < < < [ 2014 "Live 48h / Made in TM" ]. > > > > >

We have just released a new live video. It is the 2nd song we recorded at the end of May, at the 48H MADE IN TM festival, held into the Green Forest of Timisoara, Romania. Our upcoming festival show will be inside the Chill Garden / Sziget Festival (Budapest). Come see us performing in the night of 13-14 August. Have a wonderful summer! Daniel / Thy Veils

SECOND VIDEO UPLOADED. [ Thy Veils ] recorded 3 live songs, performing at a local festival at the end of May and the video for the first and second song is ready, while all three songs is in the form of a proper cover on BandCamp. By all means go straight ahead and get it. Some excellent sound here, I mean the visual effect and the dark-wave atmospheres are totally awesome. Definitely A MUST HAVE for fans of Dead Can Dance and the likes.

“To listen and listen again to this admirable musical surprise evokes names like Black Tape for a Blue Girl or Arcana, even though Thy Veils lacks voice interpretation. But the luxuriance has always been present, as well as the diversity, the purity of the sound, the clarity of it all.” __[ Elegy magazine ].

EWIAN

October 31st, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

Ewian Profile

Biography: Ewian was formed in March, 2013 by German composer Ewian Christensen, who is responsible for lead vocals, piano, sound composition and majority of songwriting.

Their latest album, “Good Old Underground”, is the result of an international cooperation between Ewian (Bonn, Germany), electronic singer/songwriter Fifi Rong (London), instrumental Post-Rock artist James Hrabak (Chicago) and Dark-Pop artist Clemens Engert (Vienna). Their energetic ‘wall of sound’ includes distorted piano, noisy guitars, bittersweet vocal melodies, and solemn string passages – landing them somewhere between [ Placebo ], [ Sigur Ros ] and [ Radiohead ].

Ewian Christensen was born in Latvia and grew up in Germany, where he was schooled in classical music education. As a juvenile, he discovered his love for experimental music and participated in a wide variety of music projects. At the same time he got in touch with Benjamin Lachance with whom he is making music up to the present. Both are characterized by an affinity for deep and archetypical themes, which essentially influenced the today´s sound of Ewian.

Performers:

Ewian Christensen
Benjamin Lachance
Fifi Rong
Clemens Engert and James Hrabak

Ewian discography:

-We Will Never Grow Old (EP) March, 2013
-Voices in Your Head (Single) October, 2013
-Good Old Underground (LP) coming Oktober, 2014

Distorted guitars, screechy noises, a stumbling beat, soaring vocals. Well thats the opener by this German/international group on their first full-length album, “My dear dead memory”. So this album is off to a good start yeah? The title track is much the same, a great noise indeed. Its not all bluster and noise though, “Escape” is a beautiful ballad, an atmospheric track led by haunting piano that leads into scorching guitar noise. Now thats what the kids would say is a “tuuuuuune!” There are lots of highlights on the album, “Zampano” adds some lovely warped noises. “When i was dead” is ethereal and wispy leading into intelligent electronica and then into an orchestral wall of sound. This is really an album of sonic surprises, and good surprises at that. ___[ Trip-Tv ].
