413 - Path To Hocma

2010-11-07 13:21:34 UTC
413 is the name behind which hides the young basque David Pisabarro. This vocationally self-taught bass player first cut his teeth in various local-scene bands, in which he began to realize his maverick skills as a musician and writer, even as a constant caregiver of sounds, textures, layers and lyrics. Always delving into the dark side of art and the human being, 413’s music is passionate, seeker of new limits on the conventions that have been established gradually in contemporary music, feeling increasingly more comfortable in the experimental edge of the art and of itself, somewhere between what we label post-folk and post-rock, not ever dreading the risk of the very concept of sound. This passion also translates into a never-ending effort to soak up every single detail that will serve in his relationship with music or the learning process itself, as an author and as a producer. His first solo production [ Reschith, 2008 ] is a reflection of that. Consisting of five compositions that naturally wander among the most extreme sides of the human mind, from the introspective and sentimental to the uproar about social reality, it achieved to collect very positive feedback from the most important underground and mainstream media [ Rockzone, Feticeira ]. Between the Reschith and the recent Path to Hocma, 413 has completed a training process as a technician and has achieved to be a successful producer in each of his single efforts for bands such as Thee Brandy Hips “We are Love”, Madeleine “Madeleine” and Cohen " Subconsicous Mind ". That latter production gave him the chance to work on the very basics of what was next shaped by Eskil Lövstrom and Pelle Henricsson [ Refused, Cult of Luna, Hell is for Heroes,… ]. But now he finds himself on his own, embarking on an ambitious project, having no generational reference to base his work on: Path to Hocma is an album that could easily be labeled as conceptual, but will surely prove itself, in time, as the very embodiment of a transformation that makes it become something bigger, something of more significance, a multidisciplinary task that will be growing over the years and that will shaping and extending itself until it reaches a thousand levels of expression both musically and humanly. Its composition and production philosophy defines the product: it was written with no amplifiers, no guitars, without a studio to call home, based only on an electric bass. This radical bet looks for the most honest way to treat your own art: Path to Hocma can’t actually be purchased, but instead is freely available in both digital and CD format. So stay tuned. 413 is here to stay. ~~~~~~~ ( Based on the [ Quoted Tags ] ~ [ Cult Of Luna ] fans ~ For an [ EXQUISITE ] noise... I say [ GET IT ].

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

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.
