Great New Music: thisquietarmy, RESURGENCE

THISQUIETARMY’s newest album RESURGENCE is arguably his most accessible and varied record since his debut album UNCONQUERED. It reveals another step forward into the extension of his signature shoegaze/drone-based compositions, incorporating many different elements of post-rock, post-punk, psychedelic, krautrock, industrial & doom. 

As a result, RESURGENCE is an eclectic blend of gauzy textures and rhythms, a fresh reconstruction of his unique musical style and personal influences, and an adventurous ride from one end of the drone spectrum to the other. 

RESURGENCE took 4 years to complete, in between THISQUIETARMY’s previous outputs which have mainly explored the dark ambient/doom-drone realm since the UNCONQUERED sessions. 

The bonus disc of the CD and the bonus tracks on the LP and 7” lay out the amount of compositions that have come through since then. The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive & engaging dreamscapes. 

Guests on the album include: Meryem Yildiz (vocals) on the track ‘Gone to the Unseen’, Émilie Livernois-Desroches (violin) and Zena Virani (spoken words) appear respectively on the bonus tracks ‘Ballad of a Shepherdess’ and ‘The Cold Vacancy’. James Plotkin mastered the record. All the artwork for the album were illustrated by Mandi A. Morgan. 

For fans of NADJA, ZOLA JESUS, etc.
