Great review in OOR magazine

We just learnt that a great review of our album Tides is printed in a leading Dutch music magazine called OOR, issue 11. For our Dutch fans, please read the article here:

Translated version:
The genre of Prog Rock seems to be the exclusive playing ground of Steven Wilson (and his various bands) and bands that are signed on the Kscope recording label, such as Pineapple Thief and Anathema. Yet, in the Netherlands a number of bands adhere to this genre as well, such as Downriver Dead Men Go. Their album Tides is a collection of stunning melodies that, if you would like to make a comparison, comes close to Nosound (one of Steven Wilson’s pet projects). Languid, with sometimes an acceleration, dreamy, and highbrowed in the positive sense of the word. A musical fulcrum that is carefully structured and worked out. In particular, the moving Never Change, with minimalistic piano melodies, brings out the best of the band. Downriver Dead Men Go restates the Netherlands as an important prog rock country.

Tides van Downriver Dead Men Go is de soundtrack voor een imaginaire film

zinister

Iedere stroming leidt uiteindelijk tot een tegenstroming, ook in de muziek. In de overvloed van grunge begin jaren 90 ontstond slowcore (of sadcore), waarbij de inhoud en vorm van de alternatieve rock werd teruggebracht tot een minimale en atmosferische invulling. Bekende exponenten van deze muzieksoort zijn onder meer Low en Red House Painters, die ieder op een geheel eigen wijze invulling geven aan het toch altijd weer te krappe etiket. Ook Downriver Dead Men Go, een viermansformatie uit Leiden, voortgekomen uit de alternatieve rockband Caitlin, zoekt zijn eigenzinnige weg binnen het genre.

Background Magazine Review

backgroundmag

Downriver Dead Men Go are a Dutch band. It is the side project of band members of the band Caitlin (Gerrit Koekebakker, Fernandez Burton and Andy de Zeeuw), and additional musician Gijs van Rijn. Tides is the band’s debut album. I love the cover of the album, a beautiful and serene painting. This album was pretty tough to review. This is not the regular music I listen to but I can appreciate it. To me, it’s alternative slow rock/post rock music with long stretching musical themes. I do love the atmosphere that surrounds the album. It’s dark, it’s somewhat depressing as well, but very beautiful. Don’t expect up tempo and cheery music elements while listening to this album.

kindamuzik – Downriver Dead Men Go – Tides

Slowcore, de stroperige rocksound als tegenhanger van de grungemuziek uit de jaren negentig, lijkt de laatste tijd weer een beetje in trek. Downriver Dead Men Go is een Nederlandse band die ontstaan is uit de alternatieve rockgroep Caitlin….

altcountry – Downriver Dead Men Go

Begon als een zijproject van de rockband Caitlin. Op het debuut Tides (eigen beheer) staan 9 lang uitgesponnen, sfeerrijke nummers. Het Katwijkse kwartet, losjes vernoemd naar een boek van George Pelecanos, neemt je mee op een langzame zoektocht door een eindeloos duinlanschap…..
