Hermelin – Hermelin (2008)

  • Experimental rock 
  • Art rock

Comment: once one previous indie man and later house music and jungle promoter called the post-rock musicians as representatives of the so-called normcore. His statement was made with the purpose to hint at the normality and conventionality of the aforementioned style. By listening to this 9-notch issue by Hannover-based combo Hermelin one could perceive opposite sensations. At times it could sound as a post-rock example in ages, at times it is full of interesting sounds and tumultuous dodges. However, to understand its full value it should be taken back to 2008 when post-rock was still a full-fledged style with inspiring idealism and immense inner burning. The more I am listening to it the more I have to admit to disagreement with the aforementioned indie man about the normality of the style even if it is a little bit worn by time and changes in our understanding. Honestly, the problem is hidden within us but not in music. What is the goal of music in overall? To provide a solid rhythmic accompaniment aligned with the sturdy melody line. That is accomplished over there. In a nutshell, get involved in this forceful tour de force with exquisite pastel hues. It says more than the guys with low self-esteem. The fascinating issue is a part of the discography of 12rec. .
