Architectures - 2006

Origin Point:

Sounds Like:
Art Rock, Post Rock, Electronica, Alternative Rock

The Feral Text, formerly known as Brenda, is an outfit based in and around London and the south coast of England. Their relative obscurity is unfortunate, as the band crafts an outstanding blend of sounds with sublime vocals not unlike those of the late Jeff Buckley, particularly with their first full release, Architectures. Later work introduces more of a concise song-writing style and something approaching an electronic vibe, but still with some of the post-rock and art-rock sensibilities that made their 2006 release such a complete listen. It is recommended late-night headphone music: there is much to be heard deep in the mix.

If you're going to listen to just one of these offerings, be sure to make Architectures your choice: it's a personal favourite of mine, and a slow-burning masterpiece.

Now, I know the discussion of music can be an emotionally charged subject for some people, but I'm not claiming that anything is better than anything else. This is no more than a soap-box for me to promote music that I enjoy; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. That's fine!

If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself. :]
