La Quiete - Tenpeun & s/t 7" (2006)

La Quiete - Tenpeun '01 -'05 (2006)

La Quiete - s/t 7" (2006)

Thanks to Sam for these....More of La Quiete beauty....haha! what a paradox..

Tenpeun is a collection of all of their split 7" material, comp. material and demo recordings. They are rougher sounding, but there are some definite gems here.

The self titled 7" is from 2006 and is the bands latest recording and see the band exploring the melodies that made La Fine e Non la Fine so butter. At first I was thrown a bit, but I have to say, these three songs are so freaking good I listened to them over and over and over....So many melodies and so many tempo changes...At first it seems really complex (and it is to some extent) but the songs flow like water and have such amazing energy. All this while still remaining positive and not falling into the typical angry or depressed school of hardccore thought. (Dont get me wrong, they make for some amazing songs too) This is powerful emo hardcore music that actually makes you feel good.

Thanks again Sam.

Don't forget the La Quiete s/t has animated videos to go with each song. They're available on their Myspace... each is in a different style, i.e. line drawing, puppets etc. Arty and quite, er, weird. But cool!
As for the music itself, on the first couple of listens I thought it was kinda slight as a record. But wow, once you let it sink in, you can really appreciate the melodies and see how it builds on the La Fine... sound. Fantastic.

since La Quiete started off that whole Euro HC v. US HC argument, how about the people who really know how to do screamo/hardcore - Envy? You're obviously a big Boris fan, so you know how Japan is good for insane music. Plus, Envy's music straddles both screamo and ambient post-rock. Got any interesting 7"s or whatever from them?
