|Silence's Albums You Need Pt.2|
Hope you've listened to the first ten because here's ten more. Again, comment if this list is
helpful or not so I'll know to make more.. or not. K thanks.
|1||World's End Girlfriend|
Sample filled post rock meets ambient laced trip hop. The third and second track are sooo bad, but
otherwise hella good.
|2||Wonderland Falling Yesterday|
Enchanted Landscape Escape
Another Katsuhiko Maeda project. A more minimalist version of Worlds End Girlfriend.
Sleepingdog meets Worlds End Girlfriend. Sooo effing good.
Burn and Shiver
A must listen if your a fan of Sleepingdog.
We Hum On The Way Home
Alot of instrumental music suffers from being too cute. Artists like The Album Leaf, Explosions In The
Sky etc. attempt to make "pretty" music but more times then not instead of pulling on your
heartstrokes they bring the zzz's and sometimes even bring up your lunch. But with We Hum On The
Way Home Japanese composer Motohiro Nakashima manages to stay on the right side of cute. Mainly
consisting of just piano, trumpet and acoustic guitar, this Jap manages to make some of best neo
classical music I've heard since Max Richter, and music thats perfect for that picnic in park with your,
probably unfaithful, lover.
|6||Nick Cave & Warren Ellis|
Minimalist but epic, dark but glorious, dreary but organic the soundtrack to the Road conveys exactly
what the film presented; a glimmering hope in complete turmoil. Not only that but it could possibly
the best work from both of the artists involved, referring to their work with The Assassination of Jesse
James by the Coward Robert Ford, Cave?s award winning score to The Proposition, Ellis? band Dirty
Three, and whatever else they have been a part of. The Road soundtrack completes maybe one of the
decade?s most prevailing trilogies, while standing on its own as a modern classical masterpiece,
taking its place beside Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Lustmord as creating a perfect soundtrack
for the apocalypse.
Book Of Leaves
A gorgeous solo piano record.
|8||Stars of the Lid|
Carte-De-Visite features outtakes and unreleased work of the Stars of the Lid from 1997 - 2007.
While containing their trade marked ambient beauty, it also holds some of the minimalist legends'
most straight forward and gorgeous material. With stunning piano melodies, and samples that add so
much to the atmosphere, SOTL prove that they don't need stick completly to drone to be
Don't get me wrong, ( ) is one of my favourite records of all time, but it would actually be better if it
had all of the material from this. Yeah, it's that good.
Music for Egon Schiele
Breathtaking neo classical meets beautiful post rock. If it wasn't for the even better The Sea and the
Bells it just might be classic material.
