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:
“Incredible melodies, deep lavish atmospherics and magical layers of sound that blend to hit the senses just right” By: Dave Allan Guzda

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.”
www.facebook.com/PostRockEssentials/posts/373001089577838

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”

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.

Featured in “Travelogue 2015-29: Post Rock Summer Round Up” by Post Rock Blog Stationary Travels

“The debut album, Fields of Venus, is a fine first effort and a very appealing listen. There is something vaguely and comfortingly retro about the sound.  the clean guitars, moog like synths, and occasional treated vocals all remind me of the more atmospheric side of prog rock music from the 70s, particularly the jazz-inflected Canterbury scene which included groups like Camel”

Review of Fields of Venus By Sleeping Bag Studios

Impressive review of my album Fields of Venus by Sleeping Bag Studio Website (California), thank you guys for the nice work. Things are going well so far!

here is the link of full review: sleepingbagstudios.ca/10-waves-of-you-fields-of-venus

highlights:

“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”

Darth Vader

“With space-like atmosphere through synth sounds and fantastically-played, well-chosen guitar tones layered overtop, the beginning of Fields Of Venus takes you right to another world completely. The emotional layer of guitar-work is perfection…it’s so SMALL sounding…so innocent…and then this song bursts open like a supernova after a melodic build through the song’s progression”

Rays of Kid

“Rays Of Kid” shows a real master’s grip on song structure and placement. The instincts that Luca has shown for both production and performance thus far on the album have been incredible”

Off Road

“sometimes you just KNOW when you hear something that it’s exactly what your ears have been searching for”

Helios | Erebus – God is an Astronaut

this record came after Origins, a really good album but not their best one from the beginning of GIAA career. In Helios | Erebus the band shapes their sound with an increased prominence of ambient sections and a heavy emphasis on post metal prog crescendos.

Helios/Erebus is one of the most thoughtful work since their finest albums, full of energy and therefore the listening is highly reccomended.

A Very Pleasant Way to Die – Maïak

A Very Pleasant Way to Die was released by Maïak on 20 March 2015, the Swiss post rock band on the scene since 2010.

The Mayak Production Association is one of the biggest nuclear plant in the Russian Federation, housing plutonium production reactors that became unfortunatly popular in the 1957 during one of the worst nuclear accidents in history.

I have to say that the album got me from the very first time i’ve listened it.
The sound flows in a slowly and powerfully evolving arrangement that engages you.

Here follows my favourite tracks:

the opening track “Nutributter Green Is People” begins with deep landsapes sounds with some good guitar melodies that introduce you in the groovy central part of this remarkable mid tempo song.

than with “I Am Not a Man, I Am a Free Number” the band first explores noise feedbacks and drones in a deep ambient mood to explode in the central part of this 11 minutes songs that flows away without notice. In my opinion this is the best track of the album: the head is always moving and the mix is always capturing the attention of the listeners without annoying even a track so long. The last part of the song really got me, some big and fat riffs really worth listening for every rock fan.

with “A Fond Poster Girl For Tatmadaw” some really interesting guitar melodies let the drums and bass to express their beauty in the middle part of the song.

In the end one the most impressive post rock record of the 2015, really reccomended listening.

Band absolutly in tune in this record. Support Maïak, they deserve it.
