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... -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
