    The Silent Ballet: Volume 16

    Volume 16 marks the completion of the fourth year of The Silent Ballet Compilation Series. Throughout the series we have discovered a lot of noteworthy acts, rekindled the flame with old favorites, and watched the development of multiple musical scenes right before our eyes. We’re just as optimistic and excited about the future as we were four years ago, and every new release makes us as giddy as ever.

    This edition is a first for the series; Volume 16 is the first compilation to contain a video track. Our gratitude goes out to The Sleepy Vines, who made this possible and has perhaps opened a door that will be investigated in the future.

    A big thanks goes out to all the artists and labels who made this project possible. Relevant links can be found below; any support is greatly appreciated.

    Pet Slimmers of the Year - ...And The Sky Fell
    Archive.org download
    Torrent download

    From the mournful grey shadows of the English winter in early 2008, three friends sought to create something new and exciting with sounds alone. There are few words, they are not redundant.

    “Come tread this grand divide, it’s time, I am the ocean and beyond, Forget me, Forgive, Forget”

    Pet Slimmers of the Year return with their second EP ‘…And The Sky Fell’, a monstrous follow-up to their Lost Children debut. Retaining the heavy riffs and dynamics of the first EP, Pet Slimmer of the Year have supplemented their brand of Post-Metal with melodic breaks, dense atmospherics, and even haunting vocals on the immense closing track. A crushing and brutal collection of class songs.

    Tracklisting :
    1. Moravka
    2. The Faith Of Our Hate (Heaven’s Gate Part One)
    3. Weir
    4. …And The Sky Fell
    5. I Am The Ocean

    Fans of Cult of Luna, Mouth of the Architect, Year of No Light or Pelican should find something to enjoy in this release.

    Final Light - Further Than You Think

    Torrent download

    'Further Than You Think' is the second album from James Morris under his Final Light guise, following two years on from his Lost Children debut album, 'To Stop an Exploding Man...', displaying increased maturity and depth in both song writing and production.

    Beautiful piano lines interspersed amongst glitched beats, layered with delicate guitar lines, subtle samples and electronic, synth-like sounds to produce an often haunting, always harmonious and graceful soundscape. A great achievement and huge progression in such short time.

    Tracklisting :
    1. The Journey
    2. Floating on a Cloud
    3. Somewhere in an Alternate Universe
    4. ...You Still Don't Understand
    5. I Know Now Why You Cry
    6. Return Journey

    Fans of KASHIWA Daisuke, world's end girlfriend, Craig Armstrong or Ludovico Einaudi should find something to enjoy in this release.

    Please forward and share!

    Thanks

    Loss of a Child - Carry Me Home
    Archive.org download
    Torrent download

    'Carry Me Home' is the 5th Loss of a Child release and is their most expansive yet, a deeply layered album with flowing and interwoven melodies; contrasting instruments supporting, offsetting, and harmonising with each other and mixed for each to be heard though not necessarily under every listening environment, and certainly not on first listen; experimental through its strict structure and detailed song writing as opposed to the freedom and improvisation of many instrumental acts.

    Complex instrumentation hidden beneath simple ideas, dynamism created within the melodies in addition to volume, and the standard multi-instrumental Loss of a Child approach providing many hidden melodic passages requiring repeat listening to find and understand, but each proving that the obvious is not necessarily the best when it comes to musical depth.

    There is a FLAC version of ‘Hundred Million Angels’ available for those audiophiles…

    Painting By Numbers - Live Demo
    Archive.org download
    Torrent download

    It's always easier to form a band when it's not your first. Painting By Numbers has been a recurring project in the head of its architects long before it actually took shape in autumn 2008.

    Antoine Ollivier (Dawnshape) and Gregory Hoepffner (Radius System, Time to Burn, Template) always felt their belonging groups didn't let them experiment as much as they wanted. Soon joined by bandmate Axel Dallou (Radius System), the trio didn't ask too many questions and quickly started making noise, in a language they didn't even speak : improvisation.

    Drums, Guitar, Bass, Synth, Samplers, and endless possibilities : Painting By Numbers are devoted to pushing the standards further, fight against their own musical habits, and try to find the right balance between sonic experimentation and pure groove pleasure.

    In result of this first year of endless recordings, the parisian trio will is now releasing this "Live Demo", available for free download

    Sleepmakeswaves / Tangled Thoughts of Leaving - split LP
    Archive.org download
    Torrent download

    It's been a while, but good things come to those who wait. Hailing from opposite ends of Australia, Perth's Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and Sydney's sleepmakeswaves are proud to present you with a shiny new split LP. It's a record from two bands that are very different yet one that finds an equilibrium between the seemingly disparate tendencies of the two groups. Although both bands find common ground in their latent electronic influences, sleepmakeswaves marry these ideas to their characteristic brand of energetic and uplifting instrumental rock while Tangled Thoughts of Leaving pursue a relentlessly improvisatory, innovative path. The results are more foreboding yet no less spectacular, and are all the more reason to watch for their debut full lengths, slated for 2010.

    Tracklisting :

    1. Sleepmakeswaves - Keep Your Splendid Silent Sun

    This Is My Normal State is a post-rock/ambient band from Bristol, South West England. Formed in October 2008, the band has just finished recording its debut EP: Angel Falls ++ (October 2009).

    Taking influences from bands such as Sigur Rós, Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You, Mono, Mogwai and Joy Wants Eternity to name a few, the band create a sound-scape of interlocking melodies, typified by the use of reverb drenched guitar loops, and fragile, ethereal vocals.

    Tracklisting :

    1. Number 3
    2. Angel Falls
    3. Phineas Gage
