The Starlight Run

November 20th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Mog/

The Starlight Run Profile

THE STARLIGHT RUN began in the summer of 2012. Soaked in the heat, humidity, and history of the south. Lost in a string of days spent breaking effect pedals and nights watching stars, waiting for the sky to fall. Neil Carey and Warren Ard recently finished their first ep A Place To Land, blurring an array of sounds into a lovely mess. Guitars and synths bleed together, building walls of decay and delay.

Though not as big and swirling from the likes of [ My Bloody Valentine ] or [ Slowdive ], [ The Starlight Run ] shows more of an attempt to put advanced song structure and melody in place. Rather than just crafting infinitely appealing / occasionally thunderous mood music. It’s more more of a cross between [ Galaxy 500 ] and [ Cocteau Twins ]. It is even difficult to say whether everything is simplified, or even better magnified while the ebb and flows portrait legendary shoegaze artists such as [ Ride ], [ Pale Saints ], [ The Jesus and Mary Chain ] dwelling all over this record. It’s not an album I’d choose to miss out on guys, especially if you dig the early 90’s shoegaze era. BRILLIANT SOUND.

Take This Town

November 20th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Take This Town Profile

[ Take This Town ] is a four-piece founded 2011 in the Bavarian Forest of Germany that draws influences from black metal, sludge, doom and hardcore outfits, ( think the likes of [ Rorcal ] or [ Celeste ] ) but with a slightly more aggressive touch. The band made it’s first appearance in terms of an album release back in 2012 with “Pulse” which is now followed by “Waking Dream” after two years.

For some raw, aggressive and unrefined metal sound I’d say start with “Pulse” but truth be told “Waking Dream” takes on a sublime musical shift, while “Waking Dream” still keeps the terrifying black-end death noise bit the sound is beautifully polished with several sub-genres to it focusing on the noise aspect of the EP.

Describing [ Take This Town ] as a black-metal outfit isn’t accurate and doesn’t do the band justice as they go far beyond being your average black-metal sound. Tons of post-hardcore vibes are in attribution, especially in the vocals / lyrics which holds some mega angst, there’s a lot of it in the music too and not just the vocals. With angry screaming and the eerie speed drumming the originality of [ Take This Town ] reaches even higher. “Waking Dream” is indeed a highly recommended EP. With a total duration of under 15 minutes you’d think there isn’t a lot to it but trust me when you done listening to the EP you’ll feel totally hammered man.

Lehnen

November 19th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Lehnen Profile

Lehnen was founded by two Americans and two Austrians residing in Austria’s capital, Vienna. They play loud rock music using sonic textures and song structures predominantly found in ambient/ post-rock. In 2013, they released their 3rd album, „I See Your Shadow“ via their own label Cloud Contact.

“On I See Your Shadow, Lehnen has truly made their blend of Post-Rock, Ambient, and Pop into a wall of sound resulting in relentlessly driving songs. With the additional use of distorted and estranged field recordings, an atmosphere is created from which its listener can hardly escape, leading him on a jaw-dropping journey into the void, only to arrive back at a fantastic conclusion.” – The Gap

“It’s incredible what kind of wonderful music can be found outside of the mainstream (although I wish Lehnen all of the success in the world!!). The band (which reminds me a bit of Godspeed You! Black Emperor) draws its influences from Postcore, Ambient and Electronic music, but no boundaries are set in place! A perfect album, and yet one never has the impression it was thoroughly planned out (although it certainly was). THAT is how honestly and especially directly this music speaks to its listener.” – XXL Rock

“I See Your Shadow is so well thought out and precisely executed that letting oneself fall into its soundscapes is a pure pleasure. Planning in music is usually something considered to be rather negative and often referred to as the enemy of creativity and a symbol for the longing of commerical success. Precision is still an often misunderstood label. In Lehnen’s case, precision and hard work have allowed for them to get closer to their initial dream.” – Music Austria

Joel Boyd – vocals, guitar
Martin Konvicka – guitar
Stefan Sieder – bass
and Matthew Prokop – drums, synths

[ I SEE YOUR SHADOW ].

„It was time for a change; a change unlike the ones we’d experienced before. We decided to write the SONG, not the album, do whatever it takes to make it the best song possible even if it meant passing on the temptation to rely on things like electronic beats, and let that wall of sound breath from time to time, sometimes even leaving vocals out.

“I See Your Shadow” was conceived using a new mindset: Do the best you can, have fun with it, and stop looking to the future for change. Change is everywhere you choose to see it. Using this mindset and 1,5 years of stage absence, 10 songs finally found a way to live in harmony. Sonically, “I See Your Shadow” is closer to our initial dream than anything we’ve released in the past. Upon first looking at the song titles and scanning through the lyrics, one may be tempted to believe this album is about death. It isn’t. Death is a prominent character that reappears when necessary, driving the REAL point home : “Life won’t wait. If you have love in your life, embrace it and never let go.”; a message made even more personal to the members of our band by the passing of several loved ones in our family and the families involved in the creation of the record. But while they moved on, we feel like we’ve been given the chance to start anew.“

All songs written, performed and produced by Lehnen.
All Lyrics by Joel Boyd.
Recorded by Lehnen and Ronny Dangl at S.T.R.E.S.S. Studios Graz.
Mixed and Mastered by Will Benoit at Radar Recording Studios.

My Autumn Empire

November 19th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Mog/

My Autumn Empire Profile
Staffordshire based dreamy folk-pop melodicist Benjamin “Thomas Holton” is the man behind My Autumn Empire and the lynchpin of pastoral experimenters’ [ Epic45 ]. His latest release ‘The Visitation’ (April 2014) is testament to his willingness to experiment and is the most conceptual album to date. Holton pulls out his inner ELO to deliver a space themed, televisually inspired, dissection of human relationships and all their complexities. The themes are realised by utilising sumptuous vocal harmonies and rich progressive pop structures all the while retaining the smudged and hazy sonic textures for which he’s renowned.

The first studio release entitled ‘The Village Compass’ (2010) presented a collection of recordings that centered around the idea of life in a remote Staffordshire village, from where Holton hails. Serving as introspection to convey a “dreamlike state of self imposed isolation”. The album was recorded in tandem with [ Epic45’s ] ‘May Your Heart Be The Map’ (2007), with Holton’s solo work sharing many of that records concerns with folk and sample based textures.

Follow up album ‘II’ (2012) demonstrated a radical departure into a world with a seventies tinged dreamscape, replacing the ambient electronica and samples with live drums, multi-layered vocal harmonies, shimmering synths and acoustic guitar. You can purchase ALL of [ My Autumn Empire ] releases on “Wayside and Woodland Recordings”. Up to date discography of [ My Autumn Empire ] include the following releases…

2014 – The Visitation
2014 – Blue Coat
2012 – II
2010 – The Village Compass
2010 – So, You Follow The Painful Crowd

‘The Visitation’ takes its name from an early 80’s Doctor Who story in which an alien crash lands on Earth and was part of the inspiration for the album, but Holton expands on the concept with humour and draws a comparison to real life events that affected him at the time.

“It’s also homage to the 70s/80s sci-fi I was watching at the time with all the stagey acting, strange atmospheres and Radiophonic synthesizer sounds that come with them, sounds that have definitely had an impact on the music. Also to the outlandish concepts that drove a lot of the ELO albums I was listening to, in particular the 1981 album ‘Time’ about a man who gets stranded in the future and attempts to have a love affair with a robot.”

However, with tracks such as ‘Andrew’, ‘Where’s Everybody Gone?’ and ‘It’s Around’ the focus shifts to how we can alienate ourselves from social interaction and engagement in the outside world by immersing ourselves in media and fantasy.

“Musically, ‘The Visitation’ hits such diverse reference points as ELO, 10cc, Sparklehorse and The Wedding Present. I also think there’s an influence of some of the American ‘indie’ music I enjoyed in the latter half of the 90s, things like Grandaddy, Pavement and Sparklehorse.”
