Longtime fans, you never thought in "Your Wildest Dreams" you'd ever find them! Posted by John Sposato at PM 1 comment:. Labels: mp3 , music , The Moody Blues. Thursday, October 8, The Moody Blues. Here I am again, deciding to let another band into my life. This time's it's The Moody Blues. I ordered An Introduction to the Moody Blues from emusic because it covered the early period with Denny Laine as well as once having the bootleg Time is on My Side , which seems like a whole other band.
I'm almost kicking myself for not seeing them in August at the Turning Stone Casino , but I need to familiarise myself with them more first. I'm sure they'll be back again someday. I have some of Patrick Moraz 's solo albums, but I know him more as a former member of Yes. Tuesday, October 6, Vinyl Lives! I left a comment there and it should show up soon. These days, I buy usually buy vinyl when it's imported or something you might not find everyday.
I must have over LPs, 12"s, and 7"s at home Discogs helps me keep track! I do have a turntable, but I don't use it that much. I do when I have to convert a rare record to mp3 most of those I did are here on the blog. I'm still itching to get more wax at a CD record fair or store out of town.
I find it too easy and pricey to get something online unless it's as scarce as hen's teeth! Over the past few years, those things have become synonymous with representing guitar-focused indie music that's tagged as "lo-fi," but there's not much about True that sounds home-recorded or shabby.
As he did on Amoral , Elbrecht handled the production duties on True , and his able ear makes True less a lo-fi shoegaze-revivalist LP and more of a studio professional's idea of what a lo-fi shoegaze-revivalist LP would sound like.
It's the small details, like the howling wind and bird cries that open "Sariza Spring" or the exquisitely applied layers of echo on closer "So Hard to See", that mark this album as a headphones listen.

Amazon Music Unlimited. Their debut album 'Amoral' was self-recorded, self-produced, and is best understood as digital collage; a dark, guitar and synth-pop voyage of melodic and rhythmic collision.
True shifts course towards a more subtle and desaturated sonic landscape. The album's first single, "Totally True," demonstrates this with its stone-washed, semi-improvised feel, celebrating bands like The Chameleons and Martin Newell's Cleaners From Venus.
As the writing process for this second album began while traveling together on tour, it also showcases Violens as a more collaborative effort. Their previous album almost had the same effect, but it was more on a song-by-song basis. True works as a whole and creates an unbroken mood and feel that is both nocturnal and strangely uplifting.
Credit this to a sonic formula that splits the difference between the epic grandeur of shoegaze bands like Ride and introspective neo-psych bands like the Rain Parade , while adding just enough noise and frenzy to keep anyone from drifting off entirely. The interplay between the guitars and voices is reminiscent of the Church , and so is the amount of reverb that bathes everything in a warm and comforting blanket.
It's an incredibly inviting sound that's built from familiar sources but is injected with enough energy and subdued ferocity to make it feel very new and exciting.
Along with the impressive sound, the group came up with a very strong batch of songs that fit together like links in a chain but also stand alone. Though a couple songs feel like radio-ready singles with choruses that make the little hairs on your neck stand up "Totally True," "When to Let Go" and a couple have tempos that would tax a heavy metal drummer especially the raging "All Night Low" , mostly the album deals in subtler shades of spooky melancholy and wistful emotion.
The b-side "Something Falling" is a dreamy ballad marked by an effectively spare production, sweeping synths and the band's trademark harmonies. Simply gorgeous.Jul 16, · Purchase "Totally True" directly from Violens here: inneselcavirdars.vawarcedigirelounutmolesata.co Written by Violens July,
