Oceans - Nothing Collapses

2009-04-15 12:42:39 UTC
oceans-nothing-collapses Oceans is a five-piece instrumental group from Chicago. They play a style similar to bands like Explosions In The Sky, This Will Destroy You, Maserati, and Unwed Sailor, but don’t dismiss them as just another clone in an already overcrowded post-rock scene. Oceans have been honing their sound since 2005 and have produced a unique debut full-length that successfully balances gentle atmosphere with spirited guitar leads. The CD’s are packaged in screen-printed recycled chipboard cases. ------------- ( SUPERB Release. ) ------------- Artist: Oceans Album: Nothing Collapses Year: 2009 Genre: Post-Rock TrackList: 01.Your Plane Leaves Tomorrow (10:08) 02.Lit Up Under Streetlights (08:19) 03.We Are Ruins (05:52) 04.Ways With Wolves (05:13) 05.Boy Detective (08:56) 06.Sound Of Static (03:35) 07.City At Peace (04:32) 08.Terrified Of What We Might Become (08:05) 09.Traps And Traps (04:38) Oceans - Nothing Collapses ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recommendations: If These Trees Could Talk For A Minor Reflection - Reistu þig við, sólin er komin á loft… Form And Fate - The Form And Fate Of Lakes [art].Ficial. - Braille Final Days Society - Noise Passes Silence Remains ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- YET ANOTHER GOOD RELEASE TOURISTAS... -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
