New track from Orouni - The Peanut Specialist

2016-02-10 05:38:12 UTC
orouni The Peanut Specialist is from the Paris-based songwriter/producer Orouni and is an English pop piece inspired by the spirit of Motown girls’ bands. The story recounts the construction of a (real) safe located in Norway that contains seeds from around the world (in the case of an urgent need to reseed a country ravaged by war, a typhoon, or even the apocalypse). Orouni conscientiously stacked layers of sounds together until the instruments were scrambled into one, resting onto a very solid yet unpredictable pillar of rhythm (with Steffen Charron on bass and Dimitri Dedonder on drums). He decided to replace his own voice with the female tones of Amélie and Clémentine (Water Babies), Dorothée Hannequin (The Rodeo) and Barbara Silverstone.

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.
