Killed In Action - Various - Impression Sampler Series Volume I/2005 (CD) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
Sackville is now a mostly defunct band as the members have gone on to work with other bands, mostly from the same label. The music was said to be a mix of country and rock, but it is more of a folk style than country. This track was previously unreleased in any form. The music is acoustic, the vocals are quite bassy, a lot like the vocals of 'The Magnetic Fields' lead singer Stephin Merritt.
Zion' is a previously unreleased track taken from the sessions from the 'Thee Rusted Satellites' album. The track builds as a layered drone increases in volume and strength, and then a percussive beat underlies the drone and various instruments screech and squeal from the drone.
Violin and guitar emerge from the din of the drone, but create a dissonant texture with the repeating percussion and bass line. It's all very noisy, as this was their style during these sessions.
It is easy to see why this track was left off of those sessions however, as it never really develops past that thick wall of noise. This is definitely their loudest track I've heard from them. The music is a dark, yet somewhat acoustic affair with light percussion, guitar and vocals.
The Killed In Action - Various - Impression Sampler Series Volume I/2005 (CD) is known as the first band to record on the Constellation label and was a critically acclaimed band, though they have now disbanded. Again ' by 'Polmo Polpo' is a track built up of recordings from the sessions that produced their album 'Like Hearts Swelling'. The Polmo Polpo project is actually a one person project from Sandro Perri who has a very intriguing style of post-rock instrumentalism that utilizes electronics and folk instrumentation.
This track is a nice, moderate track that is quite melodic, and it utilizes some interesting electronic effects to create a smooth sounding track which even has some whistling thrown in there. This music has a very organic sound with a lot of percussion, effects and an interesting sounding instrument playing sustained notes that ring out quite nicely. Even though they use electronics quite a lot, they sound very organic. It consists of a repeating synth and percussion loop with layers of airy noise and guitar with added vocal effects thrown in.
It's not their best track as it is quite repetitive, but then it is mostly just improvised effects over a loop sequence. The project is the moniker for the solo work of artist Aidan Girt, who is a drummer that has worked with GY!
Killed In Action - Various - Impression Sampler Series Volume I/2005 (CD) and Exhaust. The track is a combination of a noise, rave-style music with spoken word vocals. The track is repetitive and way too long. This one is a bit avant-garde sounding with gruff vocals and an off-beat loop. The melody is interesting enough, and so is some of the string instrumentation, but it doesn't necessarily match the loop very well.
It's okay, but a little strange in sections. The last track is 'Outro' from 'Godspeed You! Black Emperor'. This track is a previously unreleased live performance of a concert finale in France recorded on May 14, It starts out with simple chimes playing a melody softly. A violin and cello soon join in shadowing the melody. The track continues to work off of the post rock formula of development through a long crescendo, adding other instruments and building intensity as it goes on.
The sound is a bit low-fi in quality, but the music itself is quite good, and the quality seems to improve as it goes on, so it is part of the music itself. As is typical with GY! BE, the music is emotional and beautiful. Killed In Action - Various - Impression Sampler Series Volume I/2005 (CD) is really a decent compilation, and the tracks on it are mostly now unavailable anywhere else. It is a good sample of some of the very innovative and talented artists on the label, many of whom are not around anymore.
There are a few weak spots on the album however. The biggest disappointment is the contribution of A Silver Mt. Zion as they are one of my favorite post rock bands, but the track here is way too noisy and far from their best efforts.
There are a few others that are too repetitive, such as the Fly Pan Am track and the 1-Speed Bike track. However, overall, it is a great compilation with a lot of variety that ranges from the minimal to the extremely noisy, yet quality runs through the musicianship here. Though the tracks are not always the best of some of the bands and not always representative, the entire collection makes quite a cohesive statement in the end. This is definitely a good find if you can locate it, or still order it, as I did several years ago when I started first discovering some of the bands on the collection.
In the Italian prog rock label Kaliphonia released this interesting compilation album featuring many lesser known and unknown Italian prog bands and artists, along Collage from Poland. Fancy Fluid delivers Neo-prog with fiery guitar, Killed In Action - Various - Impression Sampler Series Volume I/2005 (CD), modern sounding keyboards and some nice musical ideas in the varied Nuove Effemeridi.
Consorzio Acqua Potabile CAP surprises with a wonderful intro on piano, warm vocals and sensitive guitar work with a lot of tension in Cavaliere Mascherato. Combat by Marcello Capra contains beautiful interplay between acoustic and electric guitar. Deux Ex Machina delivers complexity and bombastic atmospheres with Jean Luc Ponty inspired violin work in the jazz-rock orientated Luna.
In Jakazan by duo Clarion including ex-Zauber member Paolo Clari we hear warm flute play like John Hackett, but also a pretty irritating drum sound. My highlight is Prologo by New Credo with Steve Hackett-like guitar, fluent keyboards and many shifting moods. We hear pleasant guitar play in Happiness by the five-piece formation H2O. Polish formation Collage with Midnight Flyer also on the Collage compliation Changes from delivers a blend of pop and prog, very accessible with good vocals and pleasant keyboards.
Incentive from Ars Antiqua has a dreamy atmosphere with soaring keyboards and some fiery guitar runs. Only the keyboards and the final part with howling electric guitar can please my ears.
My rating 3,5 star. Review by Matti Prog Reviewer. One is a good example of the band's symphonic style, featuring very nice keyboard parts. Hmm, not a wise idea, the result is such a mess. Very nice, and the question of how 'prog' it is, seems irrelevant. Kaipa makes modern symphonic prog that's often too bombastic for my taste, and this one's no exception. The male vocals are unpleasant. The arrangement has nice acoustic elements but the sad song itself is a bit boring.
I suppose it's the opening part of the nearmin. Well, seems every other modern prog band sounds Killed In Action - Various - Impression Sampler Series Volume I/2005 (CD) this, and the vocalist is mediocre.
Furthermore the album wasn't fresh at the time anymore. This sampler contains some usual good stuff from the contemporary big names, and tasters from acts less familiar to me, of which only Rob Gould enters my check-out-some-more -list.
Not many delightful new names, nor is the diversity of modern prog very widely represented here, or maybe the year wasn't that great? I think two stars is enough. Powerful, slightly dystopic feel especially for the partly distorted vocals which I don't like that much.
A bit monotonic song but with good sounds. Crossover-proggers KOYO and their eponymous album hasn't been reviewed here yet, but not-so-progressive rock piece 'Now I Understand' doesn't get me interested either. Soft, orchestral sound is nice. Well done, but not much of originality.
This softly meandering track is not very far from the more recent Marillion, but is for the most part slightly boring. No great band discoveries this time, so two stars it will be again. Given that we're celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Yes this issue, we thought it'd be a timely reminder of Banks' talent The rest of the artists are mostly cases of "never heard" for me. A bit like Mostly Autumn. Sylvan I naturally know from Hackett's Genesis Revisited, but this vocal oriented and poppy collaborative track doesn't sound much prog to me.
This sampler is rather uneven, and funnily it contains pairs or threes that sound quite alike. Using different types of filters on each lens, you can produce some nice results, like a pop art effect with movement. The photos of Action Sampler are super fun, and the limit for this camera is your creativity.
