Album: Transit - Harmattan

Transit are four Belgian post-rocking guys , Jeroen (guitar), Toon (bass), Koen (drums) and Nick (guitar), with a passion for nature, emotions and all kinds of music. This is more or less the essence of Transit.

"˜Harmattan"™ is no more than a demo they recorded in their rehearsal room using only 6 mics (lo-fi, old school; and actually broke at that moment :), but more will come in November when they'll release their first EP.

02.Long Song

Their demo can be downloaded here.Cheers to Lost Children music label!!!!!

Album: Explosions In The Sky - The Rescue (part of the TRL Travels In Constants series)

Post Rock at it's greatest! Following the steps of bands like Mogwai, Mono etc.
One of best bands out there with 6 albums already.

I can't really find the words to describe them, imagine driving in your car at a country side at a sad spring sun falling afternoon and it's about to rain with your heart ready to burst out for something. ( or something like that)

The Rescue is available for download, from their official website.

"The Rescue finds EITS tapped by their label, Temporary Residence, to record eight songs in eight days for the label’s mail-order only Travels in Constants series. Each song is listed accordingly—“Day One” Day Two”, etc."

Please enjoy.

Movie: Stay

This movie focuses on the attempts of a psychiatrist to prevent one of his patients from committing suicide, while trying to maintain his own grip on reality. It's different than other movies of this kind. It confuses the audience by mixing reality with fiction and the end is not expected!!!! Also director Marc Forster has done an amazing job for this movie. The soundtrack contributes to the feeling of this film, it's made by Asche & Spencer and it's kind of ambient & post-rock. It worths to listen to it too...
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts & Ryan Gosling

Prepare for the "Red Sparowes" invasion...

Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun is the new forthcoming album by Red Sparowes to be released on 19th September 2006. The album follows the story of the Great Leap Forward, more specifically recounting the Great sparrow campaign - mass killing of sparrows (along with rats, flies and mosquitos), that were seen as pests, and fed on a portion of the harvest. Peasants were encouraged to bang pots and pans to scare sparrows into continuing flight, and eventually dying from exhaustion. Whilst the harvest of the year after the campaign was larger, there was a massive rise in locust numbers in the late 50s, as a result of the significantly lower population of sparrows, a major predator of the locust. This caused a widespread famine where, between 1959 and 1961, 30 million people died of starvation.

You can hear the track "Like The Howling Glory Of The Darkest Winds, This Voice Was Thunderous And The Words Holy, Tangling Their Way Around Our Hearts And Clutching Our Innocent Awe"
as a sample from their new job...
