Volte Face

2013-04-08 11:26:58 UTC

Volte Face is a French band from Rennes mixing the keen electro sound of the 80s, the aerial vibe of dream pop, to the rock energy. Born in 2011 after Antoine’s solo project, this is the result of his multiple influences. At the university he met Thomas Sourdy, who was regularly involved in the studio sessions. After hearing some of his tracks, Antoine’s entourage presses him to go further and excel, he hires Franck on the drums and the solo project becomes a trio.

Early 2012, they self-produced One Night Alone, Antoine and Thomas produced the video clip. It relates the journey at night of a man in the streets of Rennes, dearest city of the 2 mates. Spring 2012, they take part in the creation of a spilt album with the Post-Rock band [ Corbeaux ]. Last November, “The Meeting Point” was released containing 2 tracks of Volte Face, “Blade Runner” and “In Another Life”.

New album Land of Evergone by Ali Murray

Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. 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.
