David Evans is co-founder and drummer of veteran Melbourne instrumental band ‘This is Your Captain Speaking’, who have released 3 internationally acclaimed albums over the last 10 years, toured Europe and the UK, played the Sydney Opera House and signed to Resonant Records (London).

David Evans has created a refrain for the Australian home past and present on his second solo album Domestic Cinema. Alongside Evans’s trademark use of old manual typewriters and drumkit, the album was made from ‘field recordings in the home’ coupled with recordings of telephone exchange machinery at Melbourne’s Telecommunications Museum which has been used to connect calls all over Australia during the last 100 years.

Evans has taken sounds common to many homes – microwaves ovens, fans, electric toothbrushes, food processors, electric razors, bikes, hair dryers, frying pans, kettles – alongside recordings of various telephone exchanges, dial tones, ringer machines, selector switches, Morse keys, teletype and telex machines from the Telecommunications Museum, and combined these with typewriters, drumkit and some more ‘conventional’ instruments such as bass, harmonium and auto-harp, to create a unique sound collage.

Domestic Cinema is the follow-up to Evans’s 2011 solo debut Internal Temporal Order (Sensory Projects), described as “a sparse mesmerising work…beautiful music that defies categorisation” (Inpress) and “a tricky premise that delivered an album that’s pure and warm rather than mechanical and cold” (Mess+Noise) where “Evans ventured out into a dry and inhospitable audio phonic desert and despite all odds found water” (TwoThousand).

He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.


Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
