Cerulean Crayons - post-rock

Postby carlt » Sat Apr 03, 2010 6:17 pm UTC

Cerulean Crayons is a music project of mine with ambient guitar sounds recorded in a lo-fi fashion with an abundance of overdubs and very little cerebral direction. Well-known influences would be John Frusciante, Devics and Red House Painters although similarities might be subtle. Be sure to do something else while listening. The music is intended to be ambience and thus can be considered dull unless treated as such.

Had a listen at the streaming one on the webpage - it's nice! Having trouble downloading it though, probably because I'm capped. Keen to hear the rest of the album once I got this working, though.

I like it. It's like a constant, low-level, laid-back hook. I was expecting it to be a bit 'elevator music' from the comments on the site and the first bar, but it keep changing just enough to be interesting while still maintaining the hook. This is background music that's just different enough to be cool. I'm convinced I temporarily became a better person while listening to this music. I want more.

I think the word you're looking for is post-rock :D

I'm a huge post-rock fan and I've only listened to the first 30 seconds of whatever song that giant play button is on the link is for and I'm already downloading it. This is great, thanks. I'll spread the word too.

well shit. i play bass the best. I do guitar alright, drums okay, and a bit of piano. But it looks like you have those bases covered. I suppose I can sing, but unless you go My Bloody Valentine with the singing, it doesn't really fit.
uhhhh fuck.

It's still there but apparently thread-notifications were off somehow. Perhaps when the board was renewed. How annoying.

But hi! :D Checked out your blog just now. Looking awesome and thanks for sharing Here, Air. I was wondering so much about that song.

More than a year has passed but not until today did I finish the third album. Since some of you liked the second and first one I figured you'd want to check it out, so please forgive me for borderline necroposting.

Love it. Got all three albums and PayPal'd $10 as well. I looooove post-rock and I have no idea how I missed this up to now.

This is some really interesting music. You should consider getting a friend to play some saxophone/horn on a few tracks. There are a few artists out there that mix saxophones with post-rock and it not only sounds great, it sounds interesting.
Blow your mind with new and creative music.

Thanks! Interesting suggestion. Might try it in the future. Though now I'm focused on my solo piano album.

I'm already looking forward to the piano album. I get excited every time I see a new post from you on Facebook.

I know you, Jesse, have already noticed that my solo piano album is out, and I hope you weren't too let down! :)

For anyone who missed it however, here it is. It's not Cerulean Crayons anymore, but rather a solo piano EP. Hopefully it will be of some interest. Just like with Cerulean Crayons, it's pretty nice to have it playing in the background while you're doing something else. I'd suggest knitting.
