PRESS HIGHLIGHTS ABOUT SAIL EP

WAGNER HERTZOG:
“an ephemeral, but beautifully delineated universe that exposes everything that was already in front of us to see, but we’re all blind to it: the plaine simplicity of beauty, in all of it’s outstanding and righteous achievement, purely defined as the brightness of a star”

ECHOES AND DUST:

OZIVIT MUSIC (MEX)
‘Sail’ es un EP que tiene texturas y capas tan complejas que cuesta trabajo creer que fue realizado por 1 solo hombre, Luca hizo una labor realmente sorprendente. Estas canciones se han convertido en el soundtrack de los momentos en los que me alejo de todo para relajarme y dejar volar mi imaginación.

ROTATION 11:
” We must say, this EP grew on us, its four instrumental tracks of soothing, spacious post-rock and ambiance.” “Vote 8,2”

MECHANTS OF AIR:
“Italian one-man post-rock act 10 Waves Of You has surprised quite pleasantly with his ‘Fields Of Venus’ album last year. Now he returns with a highly atmospheric new ep, one where he further perfects his trade and delves deeper than before. Luca Crivellaro, the man behind this project, blends immersive post-rock structures with plenty of electronics, resulting in something mighty fine.”

JAMSPHERE:
“Some artists are atmospheric and focus on noise and ambience, while others are more in-your-face and focus on hard rock. Some are minimalistic while others are busy and technical. There is no right or wrong – it’s all subject to personal opinion. 10 Waves of You has the gift of delivering a combination of all the above qualities”

SLEEPING BAG STUDIOS:
“The flow is perfect, the sound, the mix, the atmosphere and the depth of the emotional layers of Luca’s music in 10 Waves Of You is at its flawless best on Sail.
SAIL ranges through an entire voyage of emotions from the up-close & beautiful to the distantly forlorn and melancholy.
SOUTH WEST WIND winds and meanders gently through an incredibly soaring and free-feeling atmosphere…hypnotically relaxing and crystalline in sound – this is truly beautiful stuff.
SUNBURST:The familiar haunting of post-rock emotion and spectacularly versatile sounds that all pile together wave, after wave, after wave in a relentless onslaught on sonically-shimmering brilliance.
ROUND WINDOW is a fantastic listen…very similar to The Album Leaf in tone, atmosphere and even approach on this one”

SO WHAT MUSIC (ITA):
“Le quattro tracce che compongono “Sail”, frutto di sei mesi di lavoro in studio, pur confermando l’attitudine post rock del musicista milanese, si aprono verso possibili contaminazioni che ne travalicano il genere, sfociando in sonorità ancor più sognanti e cinematiche. ”

PRESS HIGHLIGHTS ABOUT FIELDS OF VENUS

ECHOES AND DUST:
“The album is an incredible do-it-yourself labour of love that pulsates with lush enchanting melody and magnetic creativity. Every listen to Fields of Venus yields something exceptional from within its seductive musical strata. Post-Rock can be taken in many directions, Luca capably pulls it into the ambient/experimental realm and the results are largely captivating.”
echoesanddust.com/10-waves-of-you-fields-of-venus/

ONDAROCK:
“un miriade di soluzioni, passando dalla soffice psichedelia di “Underground Water” alle progressive stratificazioni di “Seeds of Life (Seasons)” e “Clouds”
www.ondarock.it/speciali/dpi49.htm

POSTROCK ESSENTIAL:
“the following tracks “Seeds of Life (Seasons)” and “Clouds” make this Album a winner. Both tracks have such a beautiful melody and make you forget the world around you for a couple minutes.”

SLEEPING BAG STUDIOS:
“Excellent ideas in post-rock here from the experimental mind of Luca Crivellaro making it ALL happen on his own with a professional’s touch in the studio and an artist’s mindset in his performance on Fields Of Venus”

James by Lowercase Noises

Released: 24 May 2015

Genre: ambient, atmospheric, instrumental, post rock, drone

Comment: Andy Othling from Albuquerque (US) is a great innovative musician. Whatever comes out from his guitar is a pure enchanted melody. I personally learned a lot from Andy’s techniques and tips on his well known you tube channel. This EP, dedicated to his son, is a continuous bloom of emotions. Andy sampling of string instruments with guitar is unattainable.

Track list: 

01. The First Glimmer of Wind
02. Almost So Clear
03. It Reminded Me of a Very Old Place
04. The First Wink of Dawn
05. A Return

Salute Solitude By SPOIWO

released 13 March 2015

SPOIWO is a 5 pieces instrumental post rock band from Gdańsk, Poland. The story behind of this release is a great story of friendship and determination.
These guys are all friends, and know each other for more than 15 years. They started to play music to spend time together and have fun, but in the end it become something more, something absolutely special and worth mentioning.

After a successful crowd-funding campaign they had the possibility to record their best tracks as a debut professional release and this is where the fun begins.

Salute Solitude is way more that a “best of” from the band, it’s truly and expression of their inner souls. Here is the single track release:

Sounds are big, fat with infinite depth, epic but with an impressive balance between instruments and arrangements which denotes the great affinity and complementarity of the 5 friends, every one completing each other like natural elements.

Pads, Leads and Piano parts are warm and organically played by the two keyboards, guitar feedback add the right quantity of darkness without being exaggerate or too prominent like the shoe-gaze tradition deserves. Guitar remind me Sigur Ros Jonsi playing style.
Bass is subtle but engaging, successfully participating also in the low end drones, Drums are epic with an excellent work on toms.

Even if the arrangements are quite similar with the drone-crescendo layering-fade out structure, the quality of sounds and sonic research are really variegated, keeping always the listener attached to the tracks without ever wanting to press the skip button.

After multiple listening i have to say i have not a favorite track which is a great thing in my opinion. Everything in this 7 tracks album is a journey that surrounds the hearth of the listener giving him sense of peace, strength, mystery and melancholy.

In the end and nice discovery really recommended listening that surely deserves some featuring as soundtrack for movies.

SPOIWO release is available in limited edition CD for only 6 bucks and of course in digital format for 4.5 euro.
