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”.

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.
