dinner-and-hearing-things Yamagata Japan, 2001 till present The boys from fantome have rereleased the elegant post rockers, Dinner's album with some new remixes and new songs. Coming from the area of Japan where some of the best instrumental post rock is created, these Yamagata boys do not disappoint. With clean guitars and simple and sometimes ambient/minimalist songs which fade into aggressive overtures. The entire album has an organic and natural feel to it with genres like jazz, funk and progressive mixed in for variation. At certain points they sound like a jam band and at other times a precision based mathematical band. Whatever they are, they rock with grace. Influences rises from likes of Ghost & Vodka, Fugazi, Tortoise, Don Caballero, Pele, Explosions In The Sky, Penfold, Bjørk and many more. Artist - Dinner Album - And...

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.
