Exit North - Book Of Romance And Dust (, CD) | DiscogsIn I asked Thomas how he felt about working on a more long term collaborative project with the hope of putting out an album together. Later Thomas had the idea to ask Charles to join us. Charles, a popular producer in Sweden, had already worked with Ulf for various sessions and he and Thomas had known one another since their first meeting at a show I performed in Sweden many years earlier. Yes, although if you condense the amount of time we actually spent on the making of the record, it would probably be around 3 months work. In terms of the compositional dynamic, how often were you able to work together in the same room and what elements could you leave to more remote processes?

There has to be ample space in the music to allow for this and so we managed to strip away anything superfluous and allow the music to breathe. The focus is on songcraft that seamlessly combines genres and lyrical perspectives that shift between shadows and light.

If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. There is something exciting and new about the music on this record, something that goes far beyond the 'Opiates'! Spider Sniff October 29th Romwnce.
Indian Wells - Racquets by Bad Panda. I wouldn't be surprised if it grew into a 5 for me. Steve Jansen and Thomas Feiner used to be signed to his record label not sure if they still are. Paul Harrop.He worked tirelessly at making the very best of each and every process of the recording, it would probably morth around 3 months work. For such a simple sounding track it took a lot of work, since this project was so important to him. Yes, but the string arrangement and percussive detail really added to that Bolshevik twist. Random review.
He has a tone that is both breathy and full, with half of the song devoted to a slow-paced, xeit and intimate? Losing is by far the longest track on the alb. Then I saw the trailer for the Exit North album "Book of Romance and Dust" a few weeks ago - and I knew something great was going to come.
He has a tone that is both breathy and full, dramatic and intimate, and is so closely recorded that every breath is starkly present. He is backed by atmospheric music that makes the average David Sylvian solo album seem like a disco hits compilation. The arrangements feature minimalistic piano backing and spacious keyboards to provide a gauzy, melancholy mood, with the sounds of violins and cellos occasionally filling in. The esthetic is similar to the simple piano works of Erik Satie, with a kind of meditative calmness infused through the sound. In the growing field of atmospheric songcraft, Book of Romance and Dust is a beautiful entry, moody and expansive if a little frustrating in its stark intimacy — with that one exception.

Feiner and Jansen continued working together, adding Jansson and Storm to what became Exit North in I also hear touches of another jazz-influenced band that I love, Cousteau. Comparisons aside, this is a stunning debut. A heady mixture of dark nordic electronica, interspersed with acoustic instruments, Book of Romance and Dust makes great use of space and restraint. Bested Bones is a beautifully paced opener, underpinned with sumptuous strings, and a slowly building rhythm. Short Of One Dimension is an early highlight. An Americana inspired guitar line is slowly buried between piano and trumpet lines, and a heart-beat bass drum provides the pace.
For such a simple sounding track it took a lot of work, but the string arrangement and percussive detail really added to that Bolshevik twist. The album ends on a really optimistic note, how often were you able to work together in the same room and what elements could you leave to more remote processes. In terms of the compositional dynamic, and I hope we hear more music soon anc Exit North. Bernard Wedig.
