[ Joy Wants Eternity ] aka [ JWE ] is a five piece post-rock band from Seattle. The band has drawn comparisons to [ Explosions in the Sky ] and [ Mogwai ] in album reviews with its melodic passages and equal parts ambience through heavily effected guitar. The Joy Wants Eternity song "You are the Vertical, You are the Horizon" was featured on radio talk show Sound Opinions. The band has played multiple shows with post-rock bands [ Caspian ] ~ [ Beware of Safety ] and Seattle's own [ You May Die In The Desert ]. The band's current label is XTAL Records. It can be surmised that the name of the band is a reference to the philosophical poem Zarathustra's roundelay of Friedrich Nietzsche's [ Thus Spoke Zarathustra ].


Formed in 2003, the original 15 piece lineup experimented with walls of sound and eventually pared down to a five piece before its first show. The band's first release came in 2005 with a self-released EP, [ Must You Smash Your Ears Before You Learn to Listen with Your Eyes ]. After a 90.3 KEXP-FM live performance, the band went in the studio to record their full length debut with the production assistant from the show, Andy Boyd. Released in May 2007 on local collective label Beep Repaired, the album [ You Who Pretend to Sleep ] received national attention with radio airplay and reviews.

He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.


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.
