Hang The Old Year

September 2nd, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

Hang The Old Year Profile

Hang the Old Year is an experimental heavy rock quartet formed in Portland, OR in 2009 with a musically diverse lineup featuring members of progessive metal masters Burials (PDX), Black Chamber (PDX), Strangeweather (PDX), Slow Teeth. They have sometimes been described as something along the lines of “Black Sabbath meets Godspeed You! Black Emperor” and “King Crimson meets Tortoise” but their deliberately elusive approach shrugs off conventions of any established genre.

Bridging elements of prog, punk, post-metal, post-rock, post-hardcore, jazz, math-rock, drone, shoe-gaze and psychedelia, they craft sprawling songs that swing from ambient drone through the shoe-gaze twinklings of classic emo confessionals to thunderous walls of distorted guitars dueling and interlocking.

BLURB:

“Sporting sprawling song lengths that would make Godspeed You! Black Emperor proud, this Portland quartet shares that Canadian collective’s knack for patient climbs to shimmering catharses, but Hang the Old Year adds hypnotically proggy vocals and sick, serpentine riffs to the mix. Hints of Doug Martsch and classic emo only make this slippery band more difficult to pin down. Digging it, however, is not hard at all. ___[ Chris Stamm, Willamette Week ].

UP NEXT:

Having just returned from their 4th west-coast tour, Hang the Old Year is currently preparing to record their 3rd and most ambitious album to date, hot on the heels of their S/T second album released late last summer.

Aynth

September 2nd, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

Aynth Profile

[ Aynth ] is a dark electronic music project founded in 2012. The music itself combines complex, often distorted beats with lush soundscapes, exploring genres such as industrial and rhythmic noise. With his latest and 2nd full length album “Aempossum”, he evolved into a more softer sound, while including guitars and vocals and reducing most of the noise elements.

Influences range from the likes of

Skinny Puppy,
Gridlock,
Lycia,
Lights Out Asia,
Broken Fabiola/Manufactura

[ Aempossum ]. From the first moments of the English cold wave of the 1980’s, every amateur of melancholy music is in desperate need for sounds reminding him/ her of lonely times drowning in a black romanticism that only the most famous bands of the genre seem to be able to perform: weird and strong feelings, comfortable numbness and sad tension. Nowadays, few artists have gone this way: at least, one can speak about rock band Principe Valiente and spiritually guided entities like Massive Attack, playing experimental sounds from the edge of a deep and infinite ravine – for one’s listening pleasure. German composer Aynth is on the same deserted, abandoned roads they are both walking on while introducing dark moods and long, grey rhythms. And his second LP, Aempossum, is a mesmerizing masterpiece.

English influences from the late 20th century astonishingly and perfectly echo in the whole album ; one often thinks of This Mortal Coil (magda, fallen), but also a weird mix of trip-hop and, of course, cold wave tones (traemora (run, lil missy)). As bands like Arms & Sleepers aim to, Aynth brings aerial and simple foundations made of arpeggio guitars and discrete synthetic waves, close to silence but always cleverly and delicately exposed (tell you that…). Aempossum is a kind of a risky LP, as The Cure’s Bloodflowers was when it went out; evolving between past and present, it constantly looks for itself, using experience to incredibly and constructively carve sounds in the musical sand of all tracks (hooray, all rats are gvn). Darkness comes through deep bass (kolia (empire falls)) and dark ambient moods, sometimes getting into liquid, cold indus noises (remaining as a ghost). Enlightened, shining artificial harmony (endlosschleifen) is drawn right in the middle of such a subtle, deliquescent meeting of atmospheres, carried by an intense delay effect, black and melancholy electro loops (this darker shade of pale), and admirable minimalist arrangements (ancolia).

Vocals are reduced to their primary essence, sung like chants spreading from a fascinating and contemplative lava. They all contain scintillating pieces of words drowing in an everlasting melody threat (ieve). Aempossum has the capacity to fossilize bodies and souls, capture limbs and wrap them into a cloud of smoke and frozen vapor, straighten the heart and slow pulses down. Ashes and snow melt in a continuous fight between fire and ice where none of them is victorious. The lunar landscape one gets imprisoned in looks the same as deserted dunes after an inner arson has been left to testify for the evocative strength that has just happened. Waves of dust and solidified waters rock the LP and caress it before burying our minds into a natural coffin made of false sweet silk that is revealed, as the sun gets obscured by debris of broken, decomposed spiritual walls. In such a soft and paralyzing wind, every listener touches both sublime and dark instants while trying to escape from one’s chains without succeeding. Aynth is a sorcerer of cold, profound beauty, an entity that hypnotizes us before condemning us to silence and contemplation, and letting us sail on the river Styx to be asphyxiated by water before the ultimate walk with death.
