Apparart Organ Quartet - Apparat Organ Quartet

2010-02-01 16:34:26 UTC
Apparat Organ Quartet is a 5 piece band: 4 organists and 1 drummer. They sometimes describe their music as “Machine Rock and Roll” but the standard definition of their sound is “Organ Quartet Music”, a completely new genre. They have been compared to such different acts as Kraftwerk, Wagner, Goblin, Terry Reilly, Steve Reich, Sigur Rós, the Glitter Band, Stereolab and Trans Am. Their sound has been described as quite unique and their concerts frequently inspire high praise: “Apparat Organ Quartet has grown into a phenomenal force, playing soul-stirringly portentous mechanical music, equal parts progressive rock and horror film soundtrack, reminiscent of older acts like Kraftwerk and Goblin… as innovative and meticulous as Sigur Rós but who sound nothing like it.” Neil Strauss The New York Times Apparat Organ Quartet released their second single on June 9th 2003 in the UK. “Romantika”, on the Duophonic label, is a song taken from their eponymous debut album. They have also released tracks on compilation albums from Kitchen Motors, a pioneering label/art-organisation in Iceland, and a limited edition 7 inch of the single “Stereo Rock and Roll”’ on the 13amp label in the UK. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ( I don't know how you guys would react to this but in my perfect understanding... there nothing wrong with this type of electro [ MySpace ] | [ Last.fm ] ). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Artist - Apparat Organ Quartet Album - Apparat Organ Quartet Release Date - 2002 Genre - Indie, Experimental, Electronica Tracklist 1 Romantika 4:42 2 Stereo Rock & Roll 4:17 3 The Anguish of Space-Time 6:10 4 Cruise Control 3:38 5 Ondula Nova 5:25 6 Global Capital 5:21 7 Seremonia 5:00 8 Charlie Tango 7:23 9 Sofðu Litla Vél 5:28 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Apparat Organ Quartet - Apparat Organ Quartet ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recommendations: Pornopop | Borko | Asturiaz | Message To Bears | Barzin ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ GOOD ONE RobNic...

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
