Headdress - Lunes

headdress-lunes Formerly known as Worship (they released a small cd-r pressing under that moniker), the elusive group who now answer to the name Headdress continue their dusk lit creep through the enchanted wilderness. On their debut Turquoise, they craft a beautiful loosely woven tapestry of ivy-like guitar tendrils, lichen-encrusted percussion, solemn mossy male vocals that reside somewhere between Jandek and M. Ward. The album’s fifth song “Babylon” sounds strangely like a deconstructed folk rendition of America’s “Horse With No Name”. Whether intentional or not, the glinting familiarity of the latter’s central melody adds to the existing subtle hallucinatory atmosphere of the proceedings. The crowning jewel of rough hewn Turquoise though is the sixth track titled “Moon Of Shedding Ponies”. It’s a frayed, meditative instrumental populated with generous turns of a rainstick and what sounds like howling wolves or banshees. If you dig the rustic, abstracted psych folk sounds of Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice and the many bewitching branches of the Jewelled Antler Collective, don’t miss this! ------------------------ ( Psychedelic-metal / Drone-metal a la Eluvium / Bardo Pond GOOD ). ------------------------ Artist - Headdress Album - Lunes Release Date - 2009 Genre - Psychedelic-metal, Drone-metal, Experimental, Dark-core Tracklist 1 Seethrough 2 Tip of the Pyramid 3 The Lost White Brother 4 EEEEE 5 The End ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Headdress - Lunes Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recommendations: Grayceon Nadja Jesu Eluvium Cult Of Luna ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SUPERB TOURISTAS... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation.

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.
