Bland Bladen - I Grévens Tid (2003) Psychedelic/Space Rock • Sweden

Very interesting debut by this Swedish outfit, re-released now in 2008. The music here takes it's cue from the space rock of the 70's, at least in sound and style. A big, fat bass line is the foundation in most segments on the four tunes here, with psychedelic guitar licks and spacey synths improvising on top, spacey synth sounds adding texture and a very 70's electric piano adding melodic themes from time to time. Drums and percussion seems to be the pacesetters.

Sound and style reminds slightly of bands like Hawkwind and Ozric Tentacles, and there's some obvious similarities to Öresund Space Collective too; which isn't a surprise as these two bands have some mutual members.

Recommended for fans of improvisational sounding space jams, in particular those who fancy this style of music with a 70's sound ( Review by Windhawk on progarchives)

Urban Sax - Inside (2014)

Existem momentos em que a emoção supera os percalços do caminho, falo de manter um blog, no meu caso são alguns blogs, na tentativa unica e exclusiva de levar o pouco que sei sobre música a todos que busquem por novidades sejam elas novas ou não. Esta semana tive o enorme prazer de receber um email do grupo Francês Urban Sax, elogiando o trabalho do blog e sugerindo uma postagem sobre a banda, na verdade esta postagem já havia sido feita (confira aqui). Mas o grupo esta lançando um disco novo em selo próprio e vale a pena dar uma olhadinha no site, onde as músicas podem ser ouvidas.

A idéia por trás do selo era ser capaz de dar aos artistas exatamente o que querem, todo o caminho até a embalagem. O selo também nos permite promover a música que achamos que deve ser ouvida, e que os selos comuns pode não escolher para representar.

Urban Noisy is an independent and community-based label, oriented on the notions of meeting and sharing.
It aims to promote Discoveries, Research and Innovation, to encourage new musical expressions through Experimentation with the department Urban Lab and to stimulate Exchanges between Artists, their Public and Urban Noisy through the animation of a Web 2.0 community that goes under the name of Le Cabanon (The Shed).
Urban Noisy specializes in the production, manufacture and distribution of discs, limited and numbered prints (digital media, physics, vinyl, CD or DVD 5.1). It also offers the reissue of works.
It is based on a structure for recording and mixing in 5.1 – 3d terrain.
Urban Noisy and the recording studio Urban Record , are located in Paris (13th), on the site of the frigos, true artistic hive.
The experienced team which constitutes Urban Noisy dedicates its energy and passion in the discovery and support of new talents.
Proximity and craftsmanship are key words for us.

URBAN SAX is the fruit of a long acoustic and architectural research that began in 1973 when Gilbert Artman, the band’s Creator, Composer and Choreographer made the town of Menton, in the south of France, reverberate with strategically-placed 16 saxophonists. Over the years, from projects to projects, the band increased to its present form : 30 saxophonists, 10 chorus singers, 3 percussionists, 1 bass player and 2 dancers.
URBAN SAX can be augmented by local participants from Dance and Music Schools. This has no limit ; the band has sometimes numbered 200 !
Whenever it’s possible, Gilbert Artman likes the band to be joined by some musicians issued from different musical horizons. To give you a few examples, the band was joined in Jakarta by Balinese dancers and Gamelan musicians, in Vancouver by some Native American drummers and Scottish pipers, in Turkey by some sufis, in Tokyo by some traditional Japanese drummers…
URBAN SAX has been invited all over the world to perform in great events such as the inauguration of plazas, theatres, monuments…, opened and closed countless festivals, played in prestigious places (castles, caves, churches…), “redefined” truly urban environments like subways, factories, electric power stations…, and has been asked to participate in numerous Conventions.

URBAN SAX is known for its performances and concerts concepts albums …
On 15 January 2014, the group unveils its sixth album, “INSIDE”.
Subject disk with 1 disc vinyl, a CD and a DVD in 5.1 that allows you to follow Urban territories swept by wrapping breaths, designed in a spirit of inner spatialization. A mutant universe that you also find in 3D with bonus Urbansax virtual (hard object: Vinyl – CD – DVD 5.1 and Booklet)
