30.09 /// RAOUL VIGNAL in concert

Sabato 30 settembre ore 18.00

RAOUL VIGNAL
live da VO LUME

Molto felici di ospitare Roul Vignal, folksinger francese che ha fatto un grande disco, The Silver Veil, pubblicato da La Cordillère.
Canzoni acustiche, essenziali, delicate e profonde che riportano alla mente nomi come Nick Drake, Neil Halstead, Leonard Cohen e Matt Elliott.

“Inciso nel 2015, The Silver Veil è une preciosa gemma acustica sospesa tra le malinconie del folksinger e i virtuosismi del primitivista con poetiche ballate crepuscolari strappate al cielo sopra Berlino”. – Luca Salmini, BUSCADERO may 2017

“Un disco davvero più vasto e profondo della sua estetica, non a caso, laconica ed essenziale, che proietta Raoul Vignal tra i nomi più rilevanti apparsi nel nostro Continente e non solo negli ultimi anni.” – Lorenzo Righetto, ONDA ROCK, album of the month, April 2017

“Trattandosi di un album sostanzialmente lineare, non vi è molto da aggiungere dal punto di vista tecnico, sebbene si debba evidenziare quanto la produzione polverosa curata da Martin J. Fiedler contribuisca alla resa di un lavoro intrinsecamente profondo e sentito.” – Samuele Lepore, THE NEW NOISE.it

“Raoul Vignal ha tutti i numeri per distinguersi dagli altri, sia per capacità di scrittura che per la sensibilità e il gusto che trapela da ogni canzone. Un disco dalla bellezza tremula e sfuggente, a tratti commovente, che si fa amare come una piccola cosa preziosa, da collocare accanto agli Herman Düne, ai Sodastream o a Matt Elliott.” – Ignazio Giulotta, DISTORSION

04.10 /// Common Eider, King Eider /// live

Wednesday, October 4th at 730 PM

COMMON EIDER, KING EIDER
live @ VOLUM E

Common Eider, King Eider is an evolving art and music collaboration between Rob Fisk (Badgerlore, Six Organs of Admittance/Hexadic collaborator), Vicky Fong, Andee Connors (A Minor Forest), Andrew Weathers and Blaine Todd. A potent mix of blackened ambience, drone and silence incorporating viola, vast chorale arrangements, and field recordings.
Labels representing CEKE since their inception in 2007 include Cold Spring, Pesanta Urfolk, Black Horizons, Root Strata, Sol y Nieve, and their own imprint Caribou People.
Swelling vocal abstractions augmented with lush blankets of layered viola stretched out of time- hushed, yet unnerving to experience. Terrifying, beautiful, spare, the sound of light nullified and at the same time a celebration of the power and beauty of the sun.

“If you like shit like Sunn O))), Swans, GSY!BE, Thisquietarmy, Lustmord, Haxan Cloak, Mamiffer and Sutekh Hexen, then Common Eider, King Eider, will take you on an unforgettable voyage through the most remote corners of your mind and deep into the most hidden crevices of your soul, tunneling into you until your ego completely disintegrates” – CVLT Nation
“The project’s latest album, Unhuulda, has a heavy environmental focus and its five movements sound like a dark forest evening” – Noisey
“As with a lot of Fisk’s work (Badgerlore, Deerhoof) there’s the feeling of the music summoning up vast untamed tracts of wilderness, the unfathomable deep of the lakes or endless forests, or the sheer violence of nature that can catch one completely unawares” – Incendiary Mag

Helen Money /// live

martedì 12 settembre
ore 1930

HELEN MONEY
(Usa, Thrill Jockey Records)

///

Alison Chesley aka Helen Money è una violoncellista sperimentale con influenze che vanno da Pablo Casas a Šostakovič passando per Jimi Hendrix e Minutemen. questo per far capire fin da subito che il suo è un approccio contemporaneo, libero e punk o addirittura metal a uno strumento ‘classico’ come il violoncello. ha collaborato con artisti del calibro di Bob Mould, Broken Social Scene, Anthrax, Mono, Russian Circles, Disturbed and Poi Dog Pondering, pubblica dischi con Profound Lore Records e Thrill Jockey e ha girato il mondo con gente come Shellac, Shellac, Neurosis, Sleep, Russian Circles, Magma, Agalloch, Earth, and Nina Nastasia. Il 12 settembre sarà da VOLUM E e presenterà il suo ultimo disco “Become Zero” (hrill Jockey 2016).

///

“ Become Zero is an obliteration of the senses to leave one wrung out and euphoric, offering both epiphanies from Heaven and elegies from Hell. ” – The Quietus
“The most interesting feature of Helen Money’s live performance is the ease at which Chelsey’s compositions shift between the two poles of vulnerability and harshness. The whole performance comes off as simultaneously heavy and disarming.” – CVLT Nation
“ Become Zero is spare but heavy, dark but beautiful, melodic but meditative.” – The Guardian

Finally online!

VOLUM E website and e-commerce is online, finally.

it took a long time, but we did it. and we are happy.

on volumevolume.it you’ll be able to find more or less every item we have in the shop, and it will be more or less updated on a more or less daily basis. more or less.

for now, used records are not included yet. if you want to have a look at the used records catalogue, you can find some on volumeshop profile on discogs: just click on the little record icon at the top of this page where all the other “social” icons are, and it’ll link you there in a sec.

we’ll do our best to improve the shop in the next few weeks, but for now we hope you’ll find it easy, user friendly and functional.

and of course, any feedback will be much appreciated.

enjoy surfing volumevolume.it!
