Glorie

2013-03-06 11:22:29 UTC

Instrumental band, Glorie, was formed in Memphis in the spring of 2009 by former Satyrs frontman, Jason Paxton, after an eight year hiatus from playing music. The other members of Glorie (Jonathan Kirkscey, Rob Brimhall, Andy Saunders, and Jeff Hulett) come from diverse musical backgrounds and have performed with an impressive array of artists such as Cat Power, Jay Reatard, The Bloodthirsty Lovers, Snowglobe, the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, and Al Green.

The band started as a desire to create more substantive, engaging instrumental music with a strong focus on melody. Their music blends acoustic, electric, and electronic sounds and draws inspiration from many genres including rock and instrumental hip- hop. Texturally, the instrumentation is diverse including layers of strings, synthesizer, guitar, piano, and vibraphone creating an entrancing thick wall of sound with a cinematic quality.

The majority of 2010 was spent recording Glorie’s debut record which was released May 17th, 2011 on Makeshift Music. Much time, energy, and money went into the making of these recordings.

Review:

From the first self-title “Glorie” album to a series of exquisite videos released in (2012) this enigmatic group of musicians has come a long way. A week ago their latest brand new EP “Falling” made its way to my inbox like a deserted child with the need of some proper attention. So I decided to go along with the flaw giving it all I got.

Without beating around the bush the big question is… so how is this new EP by [ Glorie ]? Well to start with “Falling” is absolutely moving and thought-provoking. There is a strong sense of nostalgia across the entire EP, more specifically on the track “Smoke” and “Falling” which almost left me to tears while listening to over and over. The one thing we can all be certain of is… With this new release [ Glorie’s ] aim is not to rebuilt or reinvent the term post-rock or at least at this phase of their musical careers but their approach on this EP is utterly and undoubtedly ecstatic. Their notes and simple execution gleamed in the dark and bring life and hopes to the surface.

“Falling EP” accomplishes a set of strongly defined strings command that evokes some of the most profound inner emotion I have ever experience. [ Glorie’s ] manifest with major strings from their heart and slender violins chords that are undeniably touching as they reveal every fragile layers in sequence and in harmony. Piano / Keys are totally well executed and flows flawlessly in parallel with violin and cello. No glitch, no break up, no hiccup, it’s like a whole bunch of instrumental equipment’s that came together and aligned themselves PROPER and in order. Almost as if they were made to complement each other’s naturally.

Downside and Favourite Tracks.

“Falling EP” total length is only about twenty-five minutes in duration. It’s not so much of a downside since it’s an EP and we can all understand the concept behind but when facing music of such caliber and sounds that are executed with such precision, believe me twenty-five minutes is not long enough, you’d wish for the sound never to end.

Favourite tracks, the entire EP is totally BRILLIANT and extremely well produced but if you really want to know “Run Away”, “Smoke” and “Falling” are KILLER MOVEMENTS and definitely the high of this EP. A lot of people has already managed to get this recording in high quality waves format but for those who haven’t yet, well do expect something utterly beautiful coming your way soon. __[ M S T ].

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.
