Au Revoir Profile

[ 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.

< < < < < [ EDIT: 2013 Title [ Black Hills ] Update ]. > > > > >

Black Hills is the second album from [ Au Revoir ] quartet, this title in particular opens with a euphoric act, a collection of strings wrap longingly around a rhythmic distortion guitar serving the very best in the instrumental post-rock arena. From day one or shall I say from “In The Key Of Night “ [ Au Revoir ] took me on a captivating journey through multiple iterations where all elements are guided with longing drone and haunting beat.

Let it be the 01st or the 2nd release [ Au Revoir ] generally tend to pause and start, slow-pace their sound as well as speed through a series of riffs contortions in a sleek and charming way. Having the ability and the (skill) to integrate a high and low-end riffing’s, the band demonstrate a high capability to maintain momentum builds-up from one end of the song to the other.

The thrill ride includes no intermission as it’s a consistent journey through some epic and outstanding sound labyrinth. Listening to both releases (one after the other) give me the strong willingness to imply that in one way or the other [ Au Revoir ] is somehow ahead of the curve. “Black Hills” is made up of three movements, three strong instrumental movements that sum up to just under half an hour and conveys an expansive feel while minimizing unnecessary elements. More importantly, “Black Hills” is a straight-up instrumental post-rock record with boasting pieces of average 10 minutes in length where the band roars back and forth with dynamics drop and massive drumming explosions. I’ve had the chance to hear the entire rec’ month in advance before its release date and trust me when I say “Black Hills” is something all post-rock fans should be looking forward to.

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.
