Glockenspiel


Here is a description and some reviews of Glockenspiel.. Glockenspiel started as the title for Adrian Dollemore’s cd-r collections of minature bedroom experiments using tapes, electronics and guitars through chains of effects who then progressed to playing with Steve D’Enton (old friend of the ’sHRiMP & ex-Quickspace sticksman) on drum kit - Steve’s “direct but tactile style driving straight through the x-axis of Adrian’s skyward guitar, as cymbals and hi-hats delicately ring and splash over his motorik anchor.

Glockenspiel have self-released a cd of live jams, capturing the breadth and dynamic they display at their shows and now their new album has appeared through Krayon Recordings - a collection of pieces displaying the development Adrian’s compositions have undergone, “where glistening arpeggios rise and fall against gurgling analogue electronics, washes of processed cymbal and ethereal drone filigree.” 'Glockenspiel have been lurking around the Post Rock/Analogue Elecronics underground for some time now, but have made significant steps towards the mainstream with this deleriously beautiful E.P. The sound is warm, full & lush, taking the listener on a wonderfully cerebral journey through a vast & unique soundscape' - Rough Trade- 'The recording of Enspiel itself is so smooth, it really does ease itself around your ears like the soundtrack to an epic motion picture. You can almost see the river running through a massive valley & shots of empty streets at night.

Beautifully minimal, building slowly but surely to every conclusion. Each piece is as strong as the next. With such a solid body of work here, this album is one of the best of it's kind you're going to find this year.'-Nine Hertz.com- Enspiel (Krayon Recordings) is hypnotic & entrancing & manages to be so with a 'less is more' aesthetic. Intensely meditative & ambient textures build swirling melodies that orbit your head until you finally give in to the sonic splendor.

Rich emotional depths, adding so much contrast it's heartbreaking, highlight the more insular drones. The whole album is very dream like & fascinating. Similar to being in the middle of a fog bank having totally lost your sense of direction'. -?- 'Mesmerising guitar/loop/feedback playing/processing with jaw dropping drums.

A duo that transcend the minimal forces with layers & layers of bloody sublime music' - Onedeafear.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
