Just letting anyone know, if you want to listen to Room with a View - "Collecting shells at lighthouse hill" it is available from spotify. So I've been listening to it and it sure as hell sounds a lot better than what it did back then, presumably because I do enjoy katatonia beyond "Viva Emptiness" now as well.
WOW.. this thread contains some awesome music!! All that's missing is some new NOVEMBRE STUFF!! Any news?
Anyways... got some more stuff to add!
You guys must check out ALCEST and LES DISCRETS.. amazing french black shoegazey type stuff, i find it quite similar to the dreaminess of Novembre.
Also a band called Falloch for anyone who is a fan of Agalloch
And lastly, Pilgrim have a new song out which is extremely Novembre-like in parts!
Another similar band from Italy, L'Alba di Morrigan : [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QQMOzBPxt4&feature=related[/ame]
They've just released a debut album on March 2012 called The Essence Remains. Listening to the preview, it looks like they often put some Novembre's or Katatonia's cd on their stereo at least once in their life
Would anybody agree that this has some Novembre touch too? for them(in last.fm), it's tagged as experimental, avant-garde, guitar virtuoso etc, but to me it sound familiar, and expected, and like a bit lighter version of Novembre music.(I haven't heard much guitar virtuoso though, quite negligible)
Buckethead is an extremely famous guitar virtuoso, he is known for playing shows with a kfc bucket on his head. I think his melodies in this song cause this magnetic field of dreamy/nostalgic emotions, which is what Novembre pulls off in most of their songs. Thanks for sharing it, it's a brilliant song indeed!
Also thanks for sharing the tidbit on Arctic Plateau; I've posted it to the facebook page already! I'm also curious to hear the album of L'alba morrigan, I've added it to a playlist on spotify so will be listening to it next.
For those of you who didn't yet, please join us on Facebook, look up the page "Novembre Fans" and like us. You are very welcome to share good quality music, preferrably the kind that reminds of Novembre!
Just my 2 cents on L'alba Morrigan: The band is great, but... they sound way too much like katatonia in some of the songs. At times they are so closed that I thought I was listening to one of their covers, and that, unfortunately, is quite annoying. However, when they manage to sound like l'alba morrigan they sound great! I hope they embrace their own talent and try not be spin-offs of Katatonia!
Just checking back after a long absence - do Novembre actually still exist? It's not that I'm grinding my teeth, but it surely would be nice to hear something new. In the meantime, I'll just enjoy this fabulous fan-made video I'm sure you all are familiar with:
