My Education was formed in Austin in 1999 by Brian Purington, Eric Gibbons and Sean Seagler, three refugees from San Angelo, TX. The band flirted briefly with the idea of vocals but soon decided they were never necessary to begin with and became a purely instrumental outfit.

With the addition of keyboardist Kirk Laktas (Stars of the Lid, Ultrasound, etc.), viola virtuoso James Alexander [ Cinders, ecfa ] and Floridian transplant guitarist Chris Hackstie, the lineup stabilized and their first album “5 Popes” was recorded at the Bubble with Chris “Frenchie” Smith [ 16 Deluxe, Young Heart Attack ] at the helm.

The self-released record peaked at number one on many college radio stations across North America. The band has toured Midwest, East Coast, and Canada multiple times since the original release of 5 Popes along w/ showcasing @ SXSW 2003-2006. The first self-released pressing of 5 Popes sold out in December 2003, and was promptly re-released on the Austin, TX-based record label Thirty Ghosts Records in January 2004.

In February 2003 the UK-based label, Jonathan Whiskey, released a 7 single for the song Concentration Waltz. My Education also has songs featured on the Rollerderby Records compilation The Speed by Which we Fall, and the Clairecords compilation Test Tones Vol. 2.3. After three years of blood, sweat, and tears My Education finally completed their 2nd CD, Italian, which was released on Thirty Ghosts Records on April 26th, 2005.

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.
