Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Label: Constellation Records
Electronic Dark wave from Montreal Quebec Tracks (1)

A moody, atmospheric, romantic soundtrack for contemporary urban decay, or more appropriately, the industrially declined. created with classical acoustic instruments (violin, cello, guitar, drums) using distortion, the harmonics that ride the swell of coloured noise on the opening track are richer and fuller than could ever be achieved by purely electronic means. these acid-tinged, filmic compositions reside in the mysterious, misty realm of experimental music close to - but centuries away from - ambient, chill-out music. classically fucked up, godspeed could be really pretentious but the sounds they make are way too cool to be merely coldly superior. sensitive, intelligent, original music for gentlemen and women of all persuasions.

-matt galloway, now magazine, october 1997
