White Noise Sound a sorti en 2010 un album qu’on a bien aimé par chez nous chez rock it. Lors de leur passage à Montpellier il y a quelques semaines, on a encore plus aimé. On a tellement aimé qu’on leur a demandé de nous préparer un petit podcast. Et comment dire ? Ben on a pas été surpris par la sélection, et c’est déjà en boucle dans nos enceintes.
"Each member of White Noise Sound has an eclectic taste in music. To try and deliver our musical influences to the reader summed up in only fifteen songs is a very difficult thing to do. However, we have decided to give it a go. Our musical influences come from numerous genres ; some of which include artists such as Mogwai, The Warlocks, Can, Hank Williams, Django Reinhardt, The Gun Club and The Byrds. As a result the songs are a mix which have heavily influenced who we are and more importantly the music that we make."
1. Beach Boys - Don’t Worry Baby
Could have picked so many Beach Boys songs, but this is just beautiful.
2. Jesus & Mary Chain - Catch Fire
Cool as fuck
3. The Fall - Blindness
Well, why wouldn’t we want to listen to Mark E. Smith ranting over a rumbling beat and filthy bass line.
4. Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues
Johnny cash is a legend ! There’s not much we can say about this song !
5. Brian Jonestown Massacre - That girl suicide
This song really grabs you instantly ! A perfect mix of 60’s psychedelia and 80’s shoe gaze !
6. Ride - Paralysed
The drums, song and lyrics are everything you could ask for or want in a song !
7. Super Furry Animals - Run ! Christian, Run !
Production is flawless. A Masterpiece !
8. John Cale - Big White Cloud
I have never heard strings as loud as this on a pop song. Shivers down my spine. I dare you not to weep !
9. Leonard Cohen - So Long, Marianne
The genius at his very best. I can’t think of a more beautiful record.
10. Godspeed You Black Emperor - Moya
This song starts with a droning string intro and builds into a sweeping orchestral masterpiece that has the potential to damage ears !
11. Velvet Underground - What Goes On (Live 1969)
The noise they make on this song is the reason why I have always wanted to be in a band. 9 minutes of sheer excitement. Puts the album version to shame.
12. Spacemen 3 - Mary Anne
A simple thundering bass line and hypnotic swirling guitars and synths - It’s hypnotic and is Spacemen 3 at their best !
13. Nancy and Lee - Down from Dover
Amazing lyrics and song by Dolly Parton, but the vocals by Nancy and Lee are incredible.
14. Sigur Ros - Vaka ()1
This is as close to perfection as it gets. Spars pianos and minimal vocals produced superbly.
15. My Bloody Valentine - I only said
This song and the whole album is just an amazing mix of beautiful vocals and intoxicating Lo Fi noises.
