In the Post #23: The Cinematics – Love and Terror

By on Tuesday, 8th September 2009 at 12:00 pm

The Cinematics are a Glaswegian quartet who released their debut album, ‘A Strange Education’, a couple of years ago back in 2007. Following the release, the band proceeded to take on a monstrous tour schedule which saw them supporting the likes of The Editors, Snow Patrol and We Are Scientists. Still, it was a rocky road for the Scots. Along the way, the band managed in losing both a departed band member and a demised record company. However, The Cinematics defied their troubles and are back at long last this September with their second full-length record, ‘Love and Terror’.

The first single off the album of the same name is a certainly a dalliance with deliciously dark indie. A prickly psychedelic guitar riff tickles at the underbelly of the song, while crunchy drums and swampy bass lines add further to the musical monster. The apt words of “You give me love and terror” are repeated throughout the chorus by frontman Scott Rinning – who spreads his buttery soft voice over the contrastingly murky sounds. ‘Love and Terror’ certainly manages in retaining an air of mystery about it, however, it cleverly strays from being overly dark. The song concludes itself with a mighty explosion of shiney riffs perfectly fit for a Mystery Jets indie-pop gem, ending ‘Love and Terror’ on a lighter, yet undeniably less exciting note.

Video of the Moment #124: Yacht

By on Monday, 7th September 2009 at 6:00 pm

Yacht have been one of those bands that have been the talk of the blogosphere for a while, but I’ve never really known about. Then I saw this video from their new album, “See Mystery Lights“, and fell in love with the surreal story. The tune ain’t half bad either!
