  • Mood music
  • Art rock

Comment: the last issue of an imprint called Inglorious Ocean which got letter space at Recent Music Heroes was Sub Noir`s Reflex, an issue of made up of influences of IDM, indie electronica, and concrete sounds. This issue seems to be quite similar in some respect though providing more post-rock allusions to the 4-track blend. However, it does not mean it is a somehow guitar dominated, crescendo directed experiment. Instead of it one is drawn into a Tortoise/Mice Parade/The Dylan Group-influenced terrain of minimalism, progressive rock, art music, electronic music, and indie rock/indietronica. The Bruxelles, Belgium based artist`s music used to relentlessly drift within those styles and boundaries as if being hurried up to create possibly many combinations and textures altogether in a certain amount of time. In spite of it the issue`s course used to meander in a slow and tranquilized mode which are at times accentuated with syllables and words and concrete sounds . Guitars are deftly combined with electronica or used to run alone previously being prepared or processed. With regard to the cover print it could be admitted the greyish tone is predominating over there. In a nutshell, I recommend to listen to other issues under Inglorious Ocean additionally because I have found no issues so far being somehow disappointed to my mind. Manual dexterity meets beauty meets calmness.
