* * * * * Au Revoir – In The Key Of Night * * * * *
[ harboringghosts ] ~ Think of a fever dream. Remember the sensation of waking up in a cold sweat. Your sheets, pillows and blanket are soaked clean through with the grime and filth of nightmares. Imagine those first breaths after you regain your composure and you realize that you are still surrounded by the comforts of your own bed. Like a weight has been lifted, your eyes come into focus as relief washes over you.
These demo songs from the forthcoming full length LP entitled ‘In The Key Of Night’ by New Jersian Post-Rock visionaries Au Revoir are like the sudden aftermath of that fever dream. They build, bend, break and spill just like all the best instrumental Post-Rock should. Encompassing such avenues as paranoia, fear, hopelessness and overwhelming exhilaration, both compositions offer everything I could ever want from this style of music.
These songs are majestically defined in scope, with each member offering their blood as sacrifice for the sake of the cresting wave as it rolls back, revealing the brittle frame of despair and fragile truth. Cryptic for the sake of cryptic, this review is meaningless. I can’t stress enough how wonderful these songs are. If you enjoy the way bands such as Slint, Grails, Kayo Dot and Aereogramme make you feel, you won’t be disappointed.
Corey Reilly-Davis – Bass
Dayn Viglione – Guitar
Eric Annicchiarico – Guitar
Matthew Carpenter – Drums
All music was written and recorded by Au Revoir, except for drums on all songs which were written and recored by Matt Olsson. In The Key Of Night was engineered, produced, mixed, and mastered by Dayn Viglione.
The above review says it all, think the likes of [ Pg. Lost ] ~ [ ITTCT ] ~ [ Russian Circles ] or [ Caspian ]. Well basically all the GOOD instrumental post-rock band you possibly know of. Although [ Au Revoir ] follow’s the same traditional dark, wistful atmosphere and tend awake memories of something similar or shall I say reminiscent of a 1000′s artists but their outstanding passion on this record makes it feel like a breath of fresh air and the acquaintance of a new post-rock rec’. GO GET IT LADS…
