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...

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
