ANA NEVER - Ana Never (2008, Slušaj najglasnije)

Sastav dolazi iz Subotice, osnovan je u ljeto 2002., a članovi su Srđan Terzin (gitara), Dejan Topić (gitara), Ivan za kojeg nemam prezime (gitara) i Goran Grubišić (bubnjevi). Svi su prijatelji od djetinjstva, te su inspirirani glazbom koja uključuje emocije i strah. Na njihovoj web adresi www.myspace.com/ananever nalazi se brdo utjecaja koje su naveli, a navodimo one najpoznatije - Mogwai, Arab Strap, Songs: Ohia/Magnolia, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, The Devastations, Tindersticks, Lambchop, Mark Lanegan, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Sigur Ros, Piano Magic, Sonic Youth, Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk... Ovo je kako mi se čini njihov prvijenac, a osim toga pojedini članovi ili ex-članovi imaju i neke svoje solo projekte. Goran je i kantautor, Ivan ima solo gitarske ambijentalne radove, dok bivša basistica Ivana radi ambijentalnu industrial glazbu poznatu kao glioksizom.
Kao što se može i pretpostaviti po spisku utjecaja, Ana Never radi čisti post-rock u izrazito laganom, tužnom i elegičnom raspoloženju. Album ima samo pet skladbi, no traje gotovo 74 minute. Tri skladbe su izrazito dugačke ("Streetlights" 25, "A diary of a morphinist" 18 i "Future wife - live" 15 minuta). Ono što krasi Anu Never su neopterećene minimalističke ambijentalne strukture koje imaju sjajnu gradaciju iz takta u takt pri čemu neprekidno dodavaju (ili oduzimaju) novu dozu adrenalina koja u jednom dijelu kompozicije doslovce eksplodira poput velikog praska. Nema potrebe objašnjavati njihovu glazbu jer bi bilo kakav komentar na njihovu sjajnu umjetničku formu došao kao desetka na as. To što su oni napravili na ovome albumu je blistavo i savršeno dobro. Sve skladbe su instrumentali (uz nekoliko vokalnih samplova), a ja ću jedino dodati da u skladbi "Streetlights" jedan dio kompozicije neodoljivo asocira na fantastični i tužni povratnički album Throbbing Gristle "Part Two Endless Not" meni najbolji album prošle 2007. godine.
Album je sniman u periodu od 2004. do 2006., masteriran je uglavnom kod kuće na 'homecomputer' i bez obzira na to, odlično je urađen.
Za poklonike post-rocka ovo je sjajan album kojeg valja samo slušati i uživati u njemu, a za one koje to ne zanima ne trebaju se opterećivati s njime.

Kad smo bili na koncertu zagrebačkih Mutual Of Omaha, Peđa (s terapije, naravno) rekao je da smo jedino u post-rocku bliski s ostatkom svijeta. Ništa nije pogriješio.

Naslovi: 1.Streetlights, 2.A diary of a morphinist, 3.30 seconds of my past life, 4.Future wife (live), 5.Gorgeous one (live)

Overview: Ambient, evolving, abstract hollow feeling. Feels like this could a movie soundtrack for a silent movie. Lots of Erie sound effects and moments where you swear you heard this in a movie Once. Overall very good production for what they were going for. If your into a ambient guitar feeling this ones for you. All tracks were recorded during the Mid 2000s in Serbia. Tracks 1,2,4,5 were all recorded live.

FCC CLEAN

1.(Streetlights)-Very hallow, ambient sound effects. Song has a extremely gradual build up. Very spacey feels like your floating in outer space. Very low drums make an appearance. This feels like it could be played concurrently with an epic battle of some sort. People whacking arms and legs off in slow-mo. You can just picture it. Very dark and grimy lyrics come in around 5 minuets also. At 8:30 snare drum, lots of it. Song picks up its tempo around 10:45, continues to get faster and more hectic. slows back down at 18:45. distant guitar and Erie sound effects. Fades out very gradually (24:50).

2.A Diary Of A Morphinist- Ambient evolving sound effects, switches up tempo and instruments over the course of the song. Around 6 Min gets louder and more hectic. Feels very lonely and distant. Lots of cymbals and electric guitar. Calms down a bit at 8:15, continues with downtempo harmony. Becomes mainly noise near the end of the track. But eventually slows down, fades out (17:55)

3.30 Seconds Of My Past Life-Expressionistic guitar, very nice melody, complementary soft drums in background. Picks up tempo with bouncy guitar and sound effects. Picks up tempo just a touch after 3 Min and then again slows down. Feels like this song could be played in the background while someone is having a life changing event happening right before them. (8:07)

Future Wife (Live)- Very slow build up fells like your floating in outer space. Guitar takes the limelight while very calm drums remain in the background. This song has a more tamed sounding version than the songs above., has a certain level of significance to it. Gets more ambient near then end of the track (15:30)

Gorgeous One (Live)- Starts with guitar and people talking in background. Echoing feel. Then develops into hectic demanding drums and inventive guitar. Starts fading out around with 1:30 left on track so stay close near the end.(7:27)
