8/10 Phil Staff review, 06 May 2010
If you're into violins then this is one for you. Mains De Give is Thisquietarmy's Eric Qualch (officially a busy guy) and Emilie Livernois. They're part of the Canadian underground scene you know. Emilie plays beautifully eerie and moving violin whilst Eric makes feedback a plenty on his guitar and also does FX (I'd like to think he makes latex masks for horror films but I don't think that's the case). Here you get 4 pieces of music an they're all utterly breathtaking.... guitar and violin combine to make some of the most moving experimental post shoegaze/rock whatever I've heard in ages. The 13 minute opener especially reminds me of the quiet orchestral bits in Godspeed records before the shit hits the fan and everyone gets busy. Later on in 'Cauchemar Noir et Rouge' that could be possibly seen as a more doomy affair with some dark sounding guitar feedback smothered in sombre violin (ing). The production is amazing.... and the music is so intense you just get sucked into this incredibly full sound. It's reasonably varied as well given the fact it's pretty much just made with violin and guitar. Excellent!
