1 - SOFT HILLS, THE - CHROMATISMS - (CD) 
TAPETE


Chromatisms by Seattle indiegroup is a study in contrasts - of light and shadow, yin and yang, birth and death. The album combines the delicate immediacy of folk with the power and majesty of post-rock, arrangements that nod to the classic era of 60's rock while looking forward with intertwining synths where beautiful harmonies sit on top of layers of feedback, and lyrics dig deep into the unconscious, trying to make sense of the magical and the real, the place between madness and euphoria. Compositionally, the band utilizes a diverse palette of colors, blending together reverbed guitars with moog textures, fuzzy riffs with mellotrons, lyrical bass lines against thunderous drums and delicate lapsteel weaving around vocals to create lush collages of sound. The music reveals a band in transfiguration, a group moving towards darker realms of sonic and lyrical exploration.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Riding High 02. Sweet Louise 03. Marigolds 04. Dear Mr. Moonlight 05. Payroll 06. Un 07. Horse & Carriage 08. The Gifts You Hide 09. Mighty River 10. Desert Rose

3 - SOFT HILLS, THE - DEPARTURE - (CD) 
TAPETE


On "Departure" Hobba disposed entirely of the Americana leanings which had characterized the previous albums, allowing European influences to become more apparent. These include Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, Brian Eno or the Factory Sound of the early 80s, which might be due to the fact that Hobba started to write the songs during a several-month stay in Europe. The instrumentarium was supplemented by Mellotron, Moog, Hammond B3 and a Rhodes piano. "Departure" is a monolith of an album, an album of contrasts - unlike its predecessors, yet unmistakably "The Soft Hills". Hobba is simply an excellent songwriter and his voice unmistakable. The album was mixed in London by no less than Abbey Road veteran Guy Massey (Spiritualized, The Beatles, Manic Street Preachers).

TRACKLISTING: 01. Golden Hour 02. Black Flowers 03. Road To The Sun 04. The Fold 05. White Queen 06. Reverie 07. How Can I Explain? 08. Here It Comes 09. Blue Night 10. Belly Of A Whale 11. Stairs

5 - SOFT HILLS, THE - THE BIRD IS COMING DOWN TO EARTH - (CD) 
TAPETE


The Soft Hills are the musical adventure of Garrett Hobba, Brittan Drake, Randall Skrasek, and Brett Massa. A Seattle band with an appreciation for experimentation and harmony, their songs draw from a wide range of influences from folk to psychedelic to ambient, drawing on literary influences, and incorporating experiences from dreams and visions. To listen to The Soft Hills' music is like wandering through a magical landscape where horse-like creatures run wild across velveteen fields and mythological birds soar under melancholy clouds. It is the band's love for space, melody, and sonic exploration that shines through their compositions. People might hear influences from artists like Neil Young, Sigur Ros, and Grizzly Bear.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Phoenix 02. Days When We Were Young And Free 03. Midnight Owls 04. River Boat 05. Tidal Waves 06. Chosen One 07. Purple Moon 08. Return To Eden 09. It Wont Be Long 10. Falling Leaves
