Hoover

2009-06-29 18:53:10 UTC
Hoover was an American punk rock (or post-hardcore) band from Washington, DC. Hoover was formed in 1992, and went on to produce some of the more intense music to appear on the Dischord Records label in the 1990s. Unusually, three of the four members shared vocal duties equally. They are often credited as being a progenitor of math rock along with bands like Drive Like Jehu; indeed, while the band did definitely display influences from DC indie pioneers Fugazi, they also drew comparisons to DLJ and other non-DC bands. Hoover split up in 1994, and have reformed twice: once in 1997 to record a mini-album of ‘odds and ends’, and again in 2004 to tour the US and Europe. It is not clear whether the band will continue to be active. Other projects in which members of Hoover have been involved include The Crownhate Ruin, June of 44, and Regulator Watts. --------------------- ( "June Of 44", "Fugazi" and "Unwound" fans by all means). --------------------- hoover-the-lurid-traversal-of-route-7 Artist - Hoover Album - The Lurid Traversal of Route 7 Release Date - 1994 Genre - Alternative-metal Tracklist 01 Distant 3:13 02 Pretender 2:55 03 Electrolux 7:20 04 Shut 4:16 05 Route 7 4:01 06 Regulator Watts 4:59 07 Father 4:45 08 Cable 4:02 09 Letter 5:53 10 Cuts Like Drugs 7:22 11 Return 2:55 12 Private 3:23 13 Dries 4:59 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hoover - The Lurid Traversal of Route 7 Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ hoover-hoover Artist - Hoover Album - Hoover Release Date - 2007 Genre - Alternative-metal Tracklist 1 TNT 2 New Five Drive 3 Breather Resist 4 Weeds 5 Zelectrolux/Electrodub ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hoover - Hoover Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recommendations: A Day In Black And White June Of 44 Made Out Of Babies If Lucy Fell Gauge Means Nothing ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ THANKS DANA... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
