Danish Post Psychedelia - Tales of Murder and Dust

edited November 2015 in Alternative

- "Danish sextet, Tales of Murder and Dust, was formed in 2007 with the desire to play noisy and cool rock music. Drawing on inspirations from especially surf music and film scores from classic Spaghetti Westerns, the band quickly gained the attention of the Danish press. When the band released their first EP in 2009, called Peyote, Tales of Murder and Dust was critically praised for their slow and dreamy soundscapes with attention to folk-like details.

Tales of Murder and Dust have spend the years following Peyote honing its musical expression even further, approaching a much more shoegazing sound, while supporting artists such as The Black Angels, Crystal Stilts, Wooden Shjips, and The Blue Angel Lounge.

On the 20th of March 2012 Tales of Murder and Dust finally released their long awaited debut album: Hallucination of Beauty is an awesome thought-through record in the name of noise rock and shoegaze, yet with an increasingly obvious psychedelic touch, not least in the instrumentation, which often focuses on strings, percussion and sitar."

- I've had a bit of a hard time getting into this, most likely because the new album is so unbelievably gorgeous.

    . . . "The band’s second EP, Skeleton Flowers, was released to wide acclaim on the 6th of June 2013. Skeleton Flowers consist of four tracks mixing cool post punk settings with the cinematic and beautiful soundscapes the band is known for, making the record an awesome example of the musical diversity the band is capable of."

    - "Marks a new, dark chapter in the band's long history of exploration with stirring and inspiring sounds.

    This brand new album shows the band from a much more gothic vibe than before. With its strident yet alluring soundscapes, it is a masterstroke of blending post punk and noise rock together.

    The album was completed across multiple recording sessions through 2014 and 2015 and produced by the band themselves."
