Frozen Dancers: Love from abroad!

Hey… here you are a collection of articles and reviews published on some great international web sites and magazines!

 

Comos las Grecas – Spain

“Nine tracks and almost 50 minutes of music made with feeling, with personality, an excellent album.”


Backseat mafia – Sheffield – UK

“The albums best moments come, alongside opener Drake, with the gradually unfurling washes of electronica on She Can’t Forgive, and the chiming techno of Nothing on the Horizon, both of which employ these little fragments of melody and vocal samples but build them into something beautiful and memorable.”


Robotic Peacock – USA

“With a charismatic mixture of lush soundscapes like album opener “Drake” and “Nothing At The Horizon,” melody-driven vocal cuts like “Change,” and “Monday Is Black,” and slow-burning minimal masterpieces “The Dusk” and “Skateboarding At Night,” Frozen Dancers makes for a true listening experience.”


Cosmic Disco – UK

“You wont hear a familiar pattern of recognizable samples anywhere throughout this album, it is a truly unique and beguiling mélange of many different sound sources, genre influences and human emotions, and one that confirms Tempelhof to be one of the finest duo’s in their realm.”


Liability – France

“En somme, Frozen Dancers est un beau disque d’électronica”


Rocktea – New York – USA

“this album is another gem to add to our favorite “coup de coeur” of the year.”

Finally… Here you are Frozen Dancers!

Our new album Frozen Dancers is out today on vinyl, Italy only. For the rest of the world will be out very soon. CD format and pre/orders HERE!

 

Da un magma ambient/shoegaze (lascito degli esordi per l’inglese Distraction Records), ampiamente dilatato in un’elettronica più radicale con innesti kraut, linguaggi dub e sapientemente miscelato con sperimentazione e gusto per la melodia in parti eguali, emerge oggi, mercoledì 23 ottobre, Frozen Dancers, il nuovo disco dei Tempelhof, suggellato dal marchio Hell Yeah Recordings. Dopo due ep (“You K” e “City Airport”), il duo italiano Tempelhof, ovvero Luciano Ermondi e Paolo Mazzacani, rafforza la collaborazione con l’etichetta ferrarese attraverso un album che rappresenta la sintesi estrema di un suono maturato in più di cinque anni di esplorazioni musicali. Frozen dancers è un “attimo congelato”, una danza glaciale, scura e abissale, nella quale il beat disgregato è illusione di movimento. Il suono si è fatto un viaggio ancor più lungo in terra d’Albione, ne ha interiorizzato la grana grossa, la densità, l’ossessione, per tracimare e riposare su una spiaggia nordica, laddove, quando il sole splende, ferisce. E’ un disco di ricerca, personale, che porta il suono Tempelhof alla sua massima definizione. Molte le registrazioni ambientali, massivo il ricorso all’analogico, alle sferzate elettriche di oscillatori eighties in marcia. L’utilizzo delle chitarre rimane fondamentale nel processo creativo. Riverberate, ritardate, dilatate all’estremo, sfiorano la terza dimensione, mentre le voci, sfigurate e convertite in strumento a loro volta, si stratificano in autostrade ribollenti. Per conoscere meglio i Tempelhof ti consigliamo di ascoltare le loro parole nelle interviste rilasciate a ilmucchio.it e rockit.
