Sussex [ 1999 – present ] Air Formation hail from Sussex in the south of England. They are Matt Bartram (vocals, guitar), Ben Pierce (bass), Richard Parks (keyboards), James Harrison (drums) & Ian Sheridan (Guitar). The band has been creating uplifting song based space-rock since late 1999. Born out of a love for " Flying Saucer Attack " and the likes of " Spacemen 3 " & " The Jesus and Mary Chain " Air Formation create songs awash with heavily delayed guitar and feedback, interwoven with keyboard drones and whispered vocals. Over the past 7 years the band has released two albums " Ends in Light " [ Drive-In Records 2002 ] & " Stay Inside / Feel Everything " [ Clairecords 2004 ] alongside numerous other releases. The turning point for the band came in 2005 when they recorded the beautiful ‘57 Octaves Below’ EP with legendary producer Pat Collier (The House of Love). As well as being their first recording with an expanded line up it was also their first release on UK label " Club AC30 " and was extremely well received…… " 57 Octaves Below " is simply astonishing, as each track could hold its own as a formal " A side " among any peers both past and present. Remarkable. 9/10 Drowned In Sound. In the summer of 2006 the band returned to Pat Collier and recorded the new album " Daylight Storms ". This album was released by Club AC30 in February 2007. In November 2008 they released a new 7 " Things that don’t exist / Fires " on Distant Noise Records. ~~~~~~~~~~ ( Think we all know what we looking at...

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.
