ruido mm profile

The band is called ruído/mm, which could be translated as noise per millimeter – an imaginary unit created to represent what cannot be described or verbalized. This is the comparison and the approximation the group attempts to develop and achieve thought its compositions, where electric guitar FX experiments meet contemporary classical piano themes, reaching the listener in a synesthetic way.

According to Pitchfork, their tunes could be described as sort of a “spaghetti-western space rock music”. Although this might sound weird, it gives the right idea about how far this band’s horizon (or the rabbit hole) goes. And what is most surprising about these Brazilian folks is not the range of their musical references, but how they blend them as they weren’t there at all…

Founded in 2003, in Curitiba (a very cold Brazilian town) ruído/mm is now a leading representative of the Brazilian post-rock scene. The quintet has been disseminating their noisy work through several concerts and had the scope of their music amplified by the work of journalists, bloggers and fans from inside and outside the country. Their curriculum has three critically acclaimed albums: “Série Cinza” / Grey Series (Ruído Corporation, 2004), “A Praia” / “The Beach” (Open Field Records, 2008) and “Introdução à Cortina do Sótão” / “Introduction to the Attic’s Curtain” (Sinewave, 2011).

[ PRAISES ]

“An impressive album. “Introdução à Cortina do Sótão”, from the autochthonous band ruído/mm, is post-rock at its best. Owes nothing – nothing – to the world established groups of the genre. Watch their shows is to look inside without closing your eyes. Valuing the piano on their new work was a great catch. There is noise, plenty of it, but it finds either silence or melody at the right times. With ruído/mm, the journey of life only gets better.” __[ Cristiano Castilho – GAZETA DO POVO ].

“Unique example about how Brazilian instrumental rock can be sensitive, accurate and consistent. The guitars of Ricardo Pill and André Ramiro, Giovani Farina’s drums, Rafael Panke’s bass and the – fundamental – keys of Alexandre Liblik surprise the listeners in “Introdução à Cortina do Sótão”, third album from the “curitibanos” (Curitiba’s locals) of ruído/mm. This work can be seen as post-rock, although several textures and distortions in it don’t fit in the genre, what’s great. Completely different moments within the same track can raise the interest of the listener, as a kind of epic musical. This is especially true for “Valsa dos Desertores”, introduced quietly, with whistles, and then transformed from the second minute. A delight.” __[ Ed Felix / EMBRULHADOR ].

“The greatest 2011 Curitiba’s album is from an instrumental music band. No lyrics, words, speeches, or any kind of human talking – uttermost, some unexpected appearances of electronic indians during a ritual. There isn’t even a simple growl, but still the electric guitars, piano, bass and drums of ruído/mm seem to tell great stories about life, about the hassle of facing problems and the joy of overcoming them. Able to lead a listener to distant landscapes, “Introdução à Cortina do Sótão” is an introspective and deep album. ” __[ Felipe Gollnick / DEFENESTRANDO ].

REW<<

August 4th, 2015 / Comments Off on REW<< / by Mog/

REW Profile

REW<< is the solo moniker of Ryan E. Weber, who originally hails from the Western shores of Lake Michigan. His previous bands include Decibully, The Promise Ring, and he is one half of dream-pop duo Eric & Magill. Working on Eric & Magill releases while living in both Kenya and the Republic of Armenia, Weber collaborated over the internet with a host of notable contemporary indie artists.

To coincide with the release of the new album from REW<<, Olive Skinned, Silver Tongued Sirens Sing Swan Songs, we’re excited to present the hypnotic new music video for album track ‘Swan’s Melody’. The video is a perfect visual analogue of the song’s bittersweet charms. As the elegant movements of trapeze artists are mirrored and warped as if viewed through a kaleidoscope, the gravity-defying beauty of the song’s piano lines and Ryan Weber’s aching vocals are deepened in pathos.

On Olive Skinned, Silver Tongued Siren Sings Swan Songs, the eclectic songcraft of REW<< (Ryan E. Weber) is refracted through the lens of a laptop, conveying the open-endedness, excitement and disconnection of post-modern living while maintaining the immediacy of pop. From the grand to the intimate, REW<<’s many shades blend beautifully within the one canvas thanks to Weber’s skilled hand. His compositional dexterity manages to invest the album’s dreaminess with a sense of drama. From shimmering, widescreen electronic pop to haunting, minimal ballads, REW<< traverses dizzyingly varied terrain across the album’s 30 minutes, crafting a vivid journey that demands repeat visits.

Red Traces

August 4th, 2015 / Comments Off on Red Traces / by Mog/

Red Traces Profile

Brutally contagious from the opening whirr of synth, ‘Once Were’ is the first puzzle piece from the forthcoming Red Traces album and as Ovadia reveals, “an extension of my most honest self”. Amongst his inspirations from the get-go, the debut single is Ovadia’s sacrificial response to his compulsive playback of Blonde Redhead’s ‘Spring By Summer Fall’ – and boy, it’s a striking start.

Drawing from the frenzied energy of ‘Spring and by Summer Fall’, Ovadia answers with oh-so sinister organ synth and improvisational drum beats that were “recorded in a single take”. Dizzy bass-lines and desolate vocals unite the ambiguous setting of ‘Once Were’ and embark the listener through a path of unrequited moments in star-crossed lyrics “once were / binary stars / once were”.

The fine-tuned ‘Once Were’ sets the pace for Ovadia’s record, exposing his sincere appreciation for each stage of development. Each track is isolated and treated individually, by a collaboration of engineers (Bo Boddie, Brian Lucey), all ensuring devotion to every piece of the record. From the lingering sequences to the layered fade-outs, ‘Once Were’ offers an exciting glimpse into Red Traces’ infectious and mature beginning.

Martyn Jackson Profile

Instrumental Post-Rock, hailing from Portishead. For fans of [ Explosions in the Sky ], [ This Will Destroy You ] and [ Sigur Rós ]. Debut album, “Home”, available now! “Home” was written, performed, recorded and produced by myself with the DIY mindset and I hope you enjoy what you hear as this album was literally written over the period of 3 months, starting in the winter of 2012. It was then recorded over a week in April, with basic equipment, in a student house in Coventry and finally released 07th May 2013.

What’s entertaining about “Home” is that the album straight forward lead its listeners to a pre-conceived notions. The richness of the sound is quite profound. From the opening track of “Opening Statement”, the band creates an airy atmosphere that feels light in appearance but rich in textures, one that consists of an enwrapping beauty. “Home” is not the kind of sound that cracks your surrounding walls with raging and abrasive noise, instead the end result kinda lull’s in your ear with a truly beautiful ambiance that puts you at ease and in comforts. Definitely check it out.

Download includes 2 bonus tracks, liner notes & artwork development.

Figure In The Snow” is a 6 track EP (with 2 bonus tracks) of cinematic orchestral music. My previous releases to date (“The People We Used To Be” and “Home”) have been Instrumental Post Rock, so for this release I decided to write in the style of music that first inspired me to compose. I’ve drawn influences from composers such as Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy), Jeremy Zuckerman (Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend Of Korra), and Michael Giacchino (LOST). This EP was written and produced by myself. This EP, like the rest of my releases, is “Name Your Price” and so it can be downloaded for free!
