a2402575146_2Maven is a four piece instrumental post-rock band from France. This is from their bandcamp webpage:

Maven is an instrumental post-rock band of music from Metz (France) and was born in 2012. Hammock, Caspian or Mogwai are some of its main influences. Deep ambient melodies are brought by the 2 guitars (Alex and Stephane) completed by the aerial harmonies from the piano (Marie). Bass guitar (Marie) and drums (Guillaume) bring the intensity to support the melodies. First EP out in June 2014!

I’m looking forward to the new EP. Their influences are favorites of ours (Caspian and Explosions in the Sky) and their style is deep ambient post-rock with some heavy bass and percussion providing the framework for some beautiful and hypnotic music. This is the official video from their upcoming EP, “Staring at Eastern Light” and it’s called “The Hymn of Her Innocence.” The cover shot is Marie (Bass/Piano) and the reflective composition of the photography is a perfect representation of Maven’s music. Enjoy!

Glacial, creepy, and impish is how The Guardian described Fever Ray’s self titled LP in 2009. This minimalist record has a spooky vibe throughout and the effect is achieved with bass heavy drones and haunting vocals. The official videos for this release are macabre as well. Fever Ray is an artist. Her sound is unique and ahead of its time. Enjoy these tracks by candlelight.
