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 ].

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.
