Feature in English magazine Maddog!

Hey! Click the image. Read an interview.

Can reviewers be unoriginal?

Hello trustful fans.

I hope you're enjoying this grey Wedensday. Well, at least it's grey in Denmark! Today we got a review from a webzine called Soundvenue. They gave us 3/6 which I think is OK, although I personally think it's worth more. The thing is that the reviewer doesn't seem to know any music other than Mogwai and Sigur Rós, which they describe as Post-Rock (and therefor we are Post-Rock as well). But why is it that reviewers claim that Mogwai (Sigur Rós as post-rock I can't take seriously)? The band itself rejects the term and in all honesty I do understand them. Bands first referred to as Post-Rock are acts like Talk Talk and Bark Psychosis! And if you listen to Talk Talk and then listen to Mogwai, please tell me you don't think it sounds the same? Listen to Mac, Get Your Gear On and then listen to Sigur Rós or Mogwai, and please tell me it sounds different? Does 'Dads' sound more like Mogwai or more like Do Make Say Think? Does Cats On Fire have jazzy elements in it and screaming punk-ish vokals in the end, or is it just another Sigur Rós ripp-off? Why is it that so many reviewers that review alternative music like ours don't mention any other bands than Mogwai or Sigur Rós? There are so many bands we're inspired by, and many I can hear in our music as well. Aereogramme, Animal Collective, Pavement, Why?, Do Make Say Think, Broken Social Scene, Russian Circles, Tortoise, Annuals, Toe, Maps And Atlases... If you ask me, it's just too easy to write 'Mogwai' and 'Sigur Rós'. Most people know them and the reviwer will look like as if he knows what he's writing about.

I think that was it. This is just my point of view. If you have an opinion, if you think I'm right or wrong, please by all means, let's debate.

Speak soon,

Go get a copy of Rock Sound!


There is a feature of yours truly in the new issue of Rock Sound! A small article and a review. I was told it's a 6/10 review, so that's not bad. We'll probably post it here soon.

Hope everyone is well. I just had pancakes!

Speak soon,

A french review!

I've had a lot of lessons in french in my elementary school and high school, but I'm afraid that I don't understand much of it other than they are giving us 8/10, which is nice of them. Thank you!

Le post-rock se porte bien. A la manière de notre cher rock progressif, il continue de s’insinuer dans d’autres pans de la musique pour mieux se développer. L’excellent (et parfois étonnamment joyeux) nouvel album de Sigur Rós ne fait que confirmer cet état de forme.

Suivant les traces de son glorieux aîné, et de leurs compatriotes danois de Mew, Mimas propose avec The Worries une forme de post-rock aux influences bigarrées. Soufflant le chaud et (souvent) le froid, le quatuor est porté par la voix haut perchée et maniérée de Snævar Njáll Albertsson, dont la particularité est aussi d’intervenir à la trompette sur les passages instrumentaux, participant ainsi à l’ambiance parfois mortuaire régnant sur le disque.

Pour le reste, Mimas s’emploie à bâtir des cathédrales sonores au fil des minutes, sans peur du grand écart, comme sur « Dr Phil's Retirement », dont la puissance tellurique digne d’Isis tranche avec une introduction empruntant au Genesis premier âge sa naïveté. Après tout, Mimas tire son nom d’un géant de la mythologie grecque…

Mais le groupe reste le plus souvent dans des atmosphères cotonneuses et pop, heureusement rehaussées par la sautillante batterie de Lasse Dahl. De même, la guitare versatile de Daniel Malling Beck attire toujours l’attention, par ses interventions souvent décalées, qui font parfois penser à un Time of Orchids apaisé : on ne s’endort pas à l’écoute de The Worries ! Avec ses « chansons » en forme de crescendo (dont le summum est atteint sur « Why in the World Not », digne d’Arcade Fire), il se passe toujours quelque chose d’intriguant, de prenant...

La production est excellente, et ce n’est pas un hasard, puisque Morten Bue (Arab Strap, Figurines, Mew) officie derrière les manettes : un casting on ne peut plus dans le ton de Mimas ! Au final, même si le groupe s’inscrit clairement dans le mouvement post-rock, il est indéniable qu’il développe un son et un univers qui lui sont propres. Le fait que ce constat ne s’impose qu’après plusieurs écoutes prouve de surcroît la sophistication de cette musique. Un petit exploit pour un premier essai.

Originalité : 7/10
Interet : 8/10
Production : 8/10
Note globale : 8/10

Another review. A sweet one.

Hey fans/family/friends/enemies.

Getting reviews is a weird thing. I think every single artist must feel the same about reviews. You feel happy/good/glad every time you get a good review, which isn't all that weird. And every time you get a bad review you think to yourself 'They probably didn't even listen to it' or 'oh well, you can't please everyone' or 'I hate the media'. All depending on what mood you're in. It's funny, cause no one should bother about reviews and just play/paint/write what pleases themselves and not everyone else.

That said, I'd like to thank 'noize makes enemies' for these words.

Thought Discuss DJ cd?

I didn't know this existed. A bit expensive, 2.25 quid! But probably rare I guess. I'm not sure it's legal to sell though!

Funny stuff.
