Kerretta ‘Saansilo’ CD/LP 2011

30th September 2011 at 9:24 am

Kerretta

‘Difficult Second Album’ syndrome can be a real bitch – Do you follow the same formula? Is this the right time to make a stylistic departure? Does anyone care? – but New Zealand-based space cadet instrumental trio Kerretta have navigated its treacherous waters with…

Golden Antenna Records announce latest Kerretta album ‘Saansilo’

16th August 2011 at 1:02 pm

Kerretta 'Saansilo'

When you march your barbarian horde through the streets of a fallen city, atop a fifteen hands high silver wildebeest (using their horns as handles), laser beams sparkling and shimmering over the smoking battlefields, a thousand million pearlescent snakes coiling slowly through the dead…

Tephra ‘Temple’ CD/LP 2011

16th March 2011 at 9:06 am

Tephra

When you think back over the history of heavy rock music, it is incredible how much it has diversified since Sabbath, Blue Cheer or even Led Zeppelin reworked the blues to suit their own agenda; thrash, death, black, doom, sludge through to the latest…

Del Rey ‘Immemorial’ CD/LP 2010

27th October 2010 at 9:14 am

Del Rey

Kerretta ‘Vilayer’ CD/LP 2010

5th June 2010 at 8:54 am

Kerretta

It seems that everywhere you go these days you trip over another instrumental ‘post-rock’ band, all ‘quiet-LOUD-quiet’ dynamics and brooding echo-laden chords. They’re virtually lying around in the streets like mumbly/shouty old tramps. Kerretta, however, are emphatically NOT one of these Godspeed Your Explosions…

IRA ‘Visions Of A Landscape’ CD 2009

10th December 2009 at 9:22 am

IRA

Hailing from the university town of Konstanz in Germany, IRA are clearly deep thinkers and I don’t mean that in a patronising, derogatory fashion. The opening of the biog asks that you called them ‘Rock’, not ‘post-rock’, not ‘prog’, not ‘the-latest-fashion-core’ and that immediately…

Airpeople ‘The Golden City’ CD 2009

12th November 2009 at 8:51 am

Airpeople

In all fairness the bio accompanying this release put me off slightly as it comes off more than a little pretentious and art house. Closing my eyes I saw a lot of student intellectuals with scarves and cardigans and too tight chords/jeans sat round…
