Herod Layne – Sealand Fire (2009)

Posted: September 27, 2010 by @agazetademordor in Experimental, Nacional, Post-rock

Banda paulistana. Um dos maiores expoentes da cena post-rock nacional. La vai um trecho  da resenha do Whiplash:

“Mesmo antes de lançar seu primeiro álbum oficial, o Herod Layne, de São Paulo – SP, já se tornou um dos maiores nomes da efervescente cena post-rock brasileira. O estilo, basicamente instrumental, que evoluiu através do jazz, do progressivo, do avant-garde e até com pitadas do pop, explodiu nos Estados Unidos, onde surgiu inúmeros grupos, e começou a amealhar sucesso comercial e de público. Convenções críticas levaram a uma “linha genética” do gênero que engloba Talk Talk, Slint, Tortoise, Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, dentre outros, algumas das influências do grupo paulista.”

Lyrics

Raise your flags
you’ve had enough of all the shit you cannot write down
Alone, you mark your time
Wait long i’ll watch him for you
Change your mind when you change your clothes
I know but that’s not the point
Show me something i won’t forget
I don’t don’t think don’t think that you can
One more time i’ll pay my piece
It won’t change anything
Pay no mind it all goes on until it stops
