Empire Express - Valleyland (2011) 320 kbps

картинка, оставленная пользователем


The instrumental post-/krautrock ensemble Empire Express was formed under a subway station in a suburb of Stockholm, early in 2008. They gained attention after making their first live appearance behind a front screen projection, only showing their silhouettes. Empire Express’s music has been described as a prudent blend of beautiful melodies and harmonic monotony, slowly merging into massive sound walls.

Потрясная вещица.
Хм, ну и какой тут краутрок, что оригинальный, что нео? Где он тут? Dream[hack], если не лень, отпишись - может. я чего-то не слышу?
Да ладно тебе крауторокавед, нет и нет его wink.gif
Ну пост-рок и пост-рок, без изюминки, плотно и позитивно, как в метро на работу ранним утром, зачем народ вводить в заблуждение? ph34r.gif
Офигенная группа. Одно из главных открытий этого года для меня. Velleyland просто уносит в небеса.

The post/krautrock ensemble Empire Express are
based in Stockholm, Sweden. The band has been
embraced by artists like Broken Social Scene,
Stars and Faust - all Canadian
bands/artists/collectives, and won The Music Think
Tank International Awards & Festival 2010 in their
genre with the song 'Stronge 7 km'. Their "top
friends" on Myspace list Explosions In The Sky,
Mono, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, ...And You Will
Know Us From The Trail Of Dead, Do Make Say Think
and Dinosaur Jr. They have only played a handful
of shows, almost all of which have been in their
home country.

And whilst this will give an indication of the
calibre of this group, forget all that. You must
know only this - Valleyland is fucking amazing.
This is the kind of post-rock album that the
titans refrain from making anymore, so thank you
Empire Express! Valleyland has the perfect blend
of harmonious melodies, whimsy and cascading
sonics, so much so that opener 'Stronge 7km' -
their first ever written song - was hailed by
Faust's Zappi Diermaier as his favourite song
ever. And he isnt half wrong - this entire album
is exquisite, in the way that Explosions In The
Sky are, but with horns. Thats Empire Express in a
nutshell then - Explosions... with horns.

If this band doesnt go stratospheric this year,
its a crime. Do not miss out on this one - pick it
up ASAP and guaranteed it will become jammed in
your subconscious for days - nay, months - to
come. Gush...
