LE PÉLICAN NOIR
"This Montreal quintet (and occasional septet) impresses with a wide array of instruments, including mandolin and French horn. When these are added to the typical spread of post-rock instrumentation (guitar, bass, and drums) as well as its expanded array (glockenspiel, violin, electronics), the results are more like the work of a small orchestra than a large band. "
Celestial circumflexes as astral bodies collide to the subterranean syntax of voices registering an instrumental intonation, with arms and heads tilting skywards as the commiseration of the night wraps itself about the day. Take sartorial solace as bodies sway to the reassurances of the timbred phonetics that dance loosely on floors of imagined terrestrialism. The sky breathes heavily, exhaling a dusk that renders moot the muggy light emanating from dimly lit doorways, as denizens of Krautrock propinquities are captured in motion, swaying to the post-rock sepia of slow-form stellar dramatics. Projections of these asymptotic stargazers stand ghostly and translucent before the break of reverie, as the firmament collapses under the weight and provocation of stylistic convergence. Colours bleed into one another as telescopes turn inwards to capture the sights that are the sounds of the nothernly whispering amongst themselves.
Musique crépusculaire pour combats métaphysiques.
