  • Art pop 
  • Electro-indie

Comment: I guess it supposed to be an example of contemporary indie/alternative pop. First time I could not concentrate but I had to focus on weird singing mode. I tried to figure out is it sung in Russian while strongly buffoonish or is it sung in Ukrainian or Belarusian. As much as I understand Russian I did figure out the lyrics is strongly lovelorn and the lyrics is frequently conveyed in a simplistic and naive way. However, musically it is craftily produced while being imbued with peaky synths and suggestive cadences. At times the elements will change their paths steeply by allowing lofty and bombastic dodges into the mix. Although my first impression was the release is the sort of lacklustre and mediocre. Given that I have to admit the release is a grower. But I feel I would like to get more emotions from the music it is somehow calculated and restrained. The grower is a bit in the discography of Mizou. This is a way of how electro pop, indie and synth pop used to mingle into one. Even if I am being an old school indie man preferring listen to Lambchop's Nixxon to fall asleep (sic!) I will appreciate it ultimately.

Antena – Signos En El Viento (2008)

  • Post-rock 
  • Ambient rock 
  • Art rock 
  • Electronic music 
  • Indietronica 
  • Epic 
  • Drone pop 
  • Organcore 
  • Acid rock

Comment: it is a quite peculiar feel to go back in time with purpose to review an issue you have not listened to it before. For instance, this 8-track composition was initially released in 2008 and though you have not experienced it before it somehow brings forth painful memories from the past. In fact, it reminds me of those lucky times you had been experiencing then which are ceased to exist today. In a word, it reminds me of the fragility of life and that all used to change permanently around us. The nature of the album is doleful and longing and it is the obvious reason of my complaint. The effect and consequence of it is one has to go on with his/her life to be able to reflect upon the recent time as a lucky span of time. It is always very glad to watch back in time when grass was more green and sky was cloudless. The artist comes out of Argentina and this album is a fabulous shift between epic post-rock, lysergic indie electronic and enchanting drone pop/organcore. Because of providing picturesque, slightly orchestrated and emotionally evocative chords it is a fairly proper issue to depict and convey the nature of autumn. Behind that one man project is Julio Yicarean, the talented man whose (obviously debut) album was released under such a great yet still underrated imprint, Gorriòn De Miga. Gem by any standards.

  • Ambient

Comment: how to evaluate the effects of variation in music? How many features are properly enough you are able to discern and analyse without getting suffocated under an avalanche of excessive information? And information you are getting from music could it be paralleled with information you are getting from TV, for example? [mikra]'s 11-notch outing is about avoiding pure information or to say that otherwise it is about pure bits to be channelized through filters of excessive information. The result is schizophrenically perturbed. Like dividing a beatific phenomenon into many parts by immersing it with quite irrelevant and agitated information which nevertheless makes sense ultimately. One great example of it, the track called oUTottuoO is a blend of piano chords which are heavily disturbed by more and less sharp noises coming from everywhere around it. S7 shows its beatific potential because perturbations are more switched off. Submind 1976 reminds me of a witty synthesised progression from the end 70s or beginning of the 80s as if a moody background music for a glittering TV series. Like Miami Vice, for instance. DooOwwNoW, however, it is a quite intact ambient beauty. In fact, I have nothing to add to this bunch of inordinateness and excess. It is a crafty harbinger of decay. The outing is a part of the discography of PZ104ORBIT.
