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...

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.
