Crash my Moon Yacht
Cerberus Shoal was born in Boston in 1994 and took time
year after year to create an atypical and varied music. One could qualify
the music of these Americans as post - rock , by simplicity, but it wouldn't
be fair, as they succeeded in avoiding all the clichésconnected
to that kind of music. Certainly the roots are taken in punk music, patiently
digested and tamed. Long pieces of ambient and atmospheric music, sometimes
with experimental sounds, like a controlled storm, when it is not roaring.
Music wants to be intense, rich and cerebral, as relaxing as subtle.Apart
from the classic instrumentation - guitar, bass, battery - there
are a multitude of sounds coming from trompets and saxophones, flute, piano,
congas or didjeridoo. Here is an essentially quiet, beautiful and bewitching
music, close to the dull and lunar ambiances of Godspeed You Black Emperor,
although more or less different, more serene, less tortured. " Crash
my Moon Yacht " is their fourth album, the first one officially released
in Europe, and their most mature work yet. A great album and a superb discovery.
Fantastic, and highly recommended to the amateurs of post - rock … and to the recalcitrant as well.
