Dopedrone is a one man project started in 2000. He got his influences from shoegazer, stoner rock, 70’s progressive and psychedelic rock. Over the years his music has become more electronic, and can best be described as electronica / shoegazer / doom / noise. Its spacious, heavy and beautiful. He is also the drummer of the shoegaze/post rock band Yeti Island. ~~~~~~~~ ( ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AMBIENT / SHOEGAZE I came across. Watch out for this one. They are definitely one of THIS WEEK TOP. Not necessarily the same but I' ll easily stick them together with KLIMT, Kimtak Building Yeti Island, Kashiwa Daisuke, Matryoshka and the likes. The entire album is simply splendid and flawless with a variety of tunes. Just don't worry about the " stoner rock, 70’s progressive and psychedelic rock " part of the review. Neither [ Contact Book ] nor [ Inner Sanctuum or [ Apokalupsis Eschaton ] got nothing to do with stoner-rock. By all means GET THEM ALL.

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.
