Chef Menteur

May 22nd, 2015 / Comments Off on Chef Menteur / by Mog/

Chef Menteur Profile

Thrilling, patient, ambitious, open-ended, cerebral, essential … those are just a few words used when talking about Chef Menteur’s intoxicating cosmic brew of space and psych rock, drone, kosmische, ambient … Chef Menteur positioned themselves ‘upriver’ from other music in their home-base of New Orleans and have proceeded to keep moving not only up, but out in every direction. Admitted ‘compulsive tapers in the practice room,’ Chef Menteur excel in texture and mood. Incorporating vintage, modern, and analog instruments with improvisation as well as field recordings, Chef Menteur are baffling to nail down. And wholly their own.

Credits
Released MARCH 25th 2015

Limited edition 3CD set “III”
includes a re-release of “East of the Sun & West of the Moon,”
the unreleased ‘companion’ album “North Tomorrow & South of Yesterday”
from the same sessions, and their newest tangent “Force Majeure,”
remastered from a very limited sold out cassette release for full sonic glory now available.

BLURBS

“ … music that stretches far beyond the names. Taking in this band’s sounds is an act of giving yourself over to a kaleidoscope of rock, psychedelia, jazz, noise, bhangra, African rhythms and other sounds and letting it all wash through your being. Whether it’s via East-West’s and North-South’s more cosmic leanings or Majeure’s compact rock, one thing is clear: III is a great opportunity to give in to Chef Menteur.”—Antigravity Magazine

“The name of this New Orleans-based band may have “lying chief” as its meaning, but the music is the real thing as far as I’m concerned. Psychedelic fans are in for a bliss-out with this one–there are some epic-length numbers on here, as well as shorter bursts of goodness featuring guitars, drums, Farfisa organ, sounds of rain, thunder, subways, horns and flutes. This is predominantly psych-sounding, but there are occasional elements of country, space-out, and a sample or two. Dig in anywhere and prepare to be impressed.”—KFJC on ‘East of the Sun & West of the Moon’

“The music’s a revelation for fans of freak-folk and doom metal as well as psych aficionados, drawing on all the usual Euro suspects, from ’70s Krauts to more recent developments like Motorpsycho, but with strong elements of ambient electronica bumping up against the droning organs and squalling feedback guitars. The proggy folk dance “Il obstrue ma vue de Venus” contrasts delicate acoustic interludes with crushingly heavy bass and drum-driven sections, while “Terpsichore” hits like a Saucerful of Secrets outtake. The album’s tour de force is the 11-minute “Oxen of the Sun,” which starts out powerfully hypnotic and then accelerates, creating a sense of reckless forward motion. Or try the 19-minute “Ganymede,” a fitting title for a track that unfolds as slowly and majestically as a moonrise over Jupiter. Like only the best psychedelia, East of the Sun creates an alternate universe you wouldn’t mind inhabiting.”—The Stash Dauber

“ … it’s another stunner. The opener is a hushed drift, all abstract Appalachia, wheezing harmonica, muted chordal thrum, sculpted feedback, like the prettiest Sunroof! track ever, a sort of spaced out raga, pulled apart into something even more ethereal and abstract, gorgeous and meditative and dreamlike. We figured that maybe the band had shifted their sound, and embraced their lighter, more ethereal side, but then in swoops the second track, with a rapid fire rhythmic melody, some almost funky bass, and some swirling electronics, quickly building into a sort of psych-funk that reminds us a lot of Swedish outfit Goat, which is definitely not a bad thing. As the song unwinds, the sound expands, adding more and more layers, extra instrumentation, eventually getting pretty dang heavy, with some swirling organ, building to a fierce finale.

“Death Wraith 2000” is a much darker and heavier beast, sounding like something on Cardinal Fuzz, murky riffage, swirling psychedelia, pounding drums, the sound shifting from dark and tribal, to wild and noisy and seriously freaked out. The rest of the tape finishes off two more heavy psych groovers, the first a lush, slow building Godspeed style space rocker, with gorgeous long stretches of moody minimalism, between the more in-the-red bombast, while the second and final track, brings the organ back in, things get droned out and trancey, a little bit noisy, a sort of garage prog that eventually mutates into a gorgeous stretch of soft noise, before one final blast of psychedelic space rock crush … ”—Aquarius Records on ‘Force Majeure‘

Erbear Profile

Erik Rodriguez aka [ Erbear ] and [ cssc ] For the past several years has been releasing electronic post-rock music under the moniker of [ cssc ]. But over time he began to introduce more ambient tastes into his music and felt it was time to move to a new style / music, thus the name [ Erbear ] took its form. [ Erbear ] or [ cssc ] for that matter is still a one man bedroom project, but now out of St. Louis, and not Virginia.

RUMINATE
By: Earbear aka [ cssc ]

Credits
Released MAY 08th 2015
A Fresh Start into Something Different
All Musics Composed and Arranged By: Erbear (Erik Rodriguez)

The album “Ruminate” was written over the past two years in Virginia, Knoxville, and St. Louis. It also contains several field recordings from some traveling he did in Europe last summer. It was initially written about a girl he met unexpectedly two summers ago and the narrative of the album follows our interactions over “the blink of an eye”. As time went on the album also started to reflect his transitional life after college graduation.

ENO

May 22nd, 2015 / Comments Off on ENO / by Mog/

ENO Profile

Located in Saint Gallen, Switzerland [ ENO ] is the name of the project lead by duo Ivo Münger and Christian Mikolasek. Despite the fact that the band first title “Stea.Alto” which only saw the light in August 2008, the band itself has been in the music-making since 2004 and in its one decade lifespan the duo has managed to composed, produced and released six titles including the latest being “From The Lower Earth and Ocean” released today on Ickarus Records. Given the band history and experience I would say do not be surprised if you feel like you’ve just bump in to a sound that’s fully transformed and matured.

Listening to ENO works especially the latest title “From The Lower Earth and Ocean” is like listening to the very best of Mogwai’s softest moments, the subtlest passage on piece like ‘Cody’ on “Come On Die Young”, just before all hell break loose and the skies start’s to crumbles upon you. If I were to give an honest opinion, I think the band has done an extremely good job in keeping a constant pace without any abrupt shift in sequences but above all, given the album simplistic nature as well as its contemporary feel and uniform performance, the listening experience turned out to be an intriguing one across the entire album without leading to any monotone path. This new release is accompanied by a video performance from the duo ‘Northland Old and Toothless Wizard’ and visual side of the project definitely confirm the above statement. Be sure to check it out guys.

The opening of the album ‘Night Was King and Reigned Unbroken’ is absolutely gorgeous. It’s an eight minutes movement; actually its “The Lower Earth and Ocean” second longest song; that honour belongs to a nine minutes piece conveniently title “Where A Hundred Islands Cluster”. That in mind, you’ll noticed that all songs on this album pertain a reasonable length. I mean just enough for the band to excel in every proportion in order to have a solid sophisticated piece. And unlike other post-rock acts such as [ This Will Destroy You ] or [ Caspian ] for that matter, instrumental post-rock acts who usually resort to sudden dynamic distortions, colossal layers and masterful sheets of noise and percussion swirling in the background while ascending multi-chord progression piercing the atmosphere all at once, ENO approach to sophisticated sound takes on an entirely different form. A form that strikes me in the most unbelievable way, listening to the entire album over and over I can’t help but realize that beauty and elegance doesn’t necessary rely on brute force and aggressive distortion and that it could well be on sensitivity and simplicity and that’s exactly the case with ENO latest album.

These guys are capable of projecting moments of great beauty and subtlety through expressive eerie guitars, drums and keys. Check out the closing act for instance “And the Clouds of Northland Thunder”. This movement, like the rest of the album set the atmosphere with an ocean of static-ambience. It’s a slow and chill closure for sure, featuring drone-waves and thick electric guitars with a slow-paced drumming but as the track progresses, so does its intensity by stacking sombre layers that vividly captures Kodak moments in a park nearby or lonesome sceneries with a bit of nostalgia. I think those who followed ENO works from its early stages, “Stea.Alto” or “Must Correspond In Pattern” would firmly agree that the latest album actually expanded ENO emotional vocabulary. This latest title truly disarms with grace and elegance. So if you haven’t yet… BY ALL MEANS head to the relevant page and give “From the Lower Earth and Ocean” a thorough listen. I did on multiple occasions and haven’t turn back yet. EXCELLENT STUFF.

On this records you’ll hear speaking samples of the Finnish National Epos Kalevala ( rune XLVII. louhi steals sun, moon, and fire ) from the 19th century. The album and song titles are also taken from the epos. Christian M. is half Finnish. That’s why he’s taken the epos as source of inspiration. Over the years ENO shared stages with [ Mogwai ], [ This Will Destroy You ], [ Ef ] and made several tours through Germany and Austria.

Giranice

May 22nd, 2015 / Comments Off on Giranice / by Mog/

Giranice Profile

Almost a year after their self-title album [ Giranice ] announced their 2nd album “Enea”. Aside from being nice guys who are always giving away their precious music for free [ Giranice ] play some of the most interesting, passionate and powerful instrumental music you will ever hear. Partly romantic, as if expressive and elegant sound for the sense of hearing and partly tragedy as if tripping and moving. [ Giranice ] relies mainly on instrumental beauty, their alluring melodies are inclined to ignite into head-spinning walls of noise. This is by far one of the most light-weight experimental post-rock sounds ever. Their passion and their music’s prove to be every bit as jubilant as their name implies.

UR

Credits
Released MAY 21st 2015
All Songs Composed and Arranged by [ Giranice ]

Let it be [ Giranice ] debut title, follow-up release or latest album, I can’t think of a word that can explain the emotional ties here. Apart from the band being one of my favorite artist, the end result of “Ur” or any other release for that matter makes me feel emotionally confused, yet absolutely complete at the same time. [ Giranice ] songs are put together impeccably well. I totally dig the freshness and purity of the sound. That goes to say instrumental / experimental music doesn’t have to be dark and tense to be beautiful and pleasant; it could be as light as the wind but still holds the perfect gravity with an indescribable trance.
