Renaissance Sound was formed in early 2011 in a small shanty located by the Kishwaukee River in DeKalb, IL. Consisting of vibraphone, violin, electric bass, and drums, the band has released a self-titled EP and is working on a second EP to be released later this year. The band is influenced by DIY ethics and a variety of musical styles and prefers to give their music away.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Plain and simple [ Renaissance Sound ] is more of a sophisticated brand of noise. It's as if some guru's had informed them that aiming for the sophisticated and modern mind could be cool and unprecedented for bands like them and it's exactly what they on this self title. They've developed an intellectual sound with attributions of many. Long swirling violin and the perfect combination of post-rock and jazz somehow bring [ ROVO ] to mind but the added math(y) elements give the band a unique edge. Their mild and moderate noises will most likely makes you think [ JAPANESE ] but they are not.

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.
