SPECIAL
CD / DVD LIMITED EDITION OF THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM POST-PROGRESSIVE OUTFIT
SANGUINE HUM.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly
awaited new studio album by Sanguine Hum. “The Weight of the World” sees Sanguine Hum
expand their musical horizons on all fronts with a seven-track collection of
diverse compositions – technically challenging and exciting yet always melodic
and direct. Songs such as “From the Ground Up” and “System for Solution” pursue
the Porcupine Tree meets Radiohead approach of the debut record “Diving Bell”
with powerful yet intricate riffs propelling the songwriting that continues to
make ever more inventive use of surprising twists and turns in the arrangement.
Surprises
are to be found as well in the instrumentation as the band open up the sound
and more explicitly reference a love of electronica and the music of artists
such as Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin, best heard in the song “Day of Release”
as synthetic percussion and rumbling synths give way to chiming acoustic guitar
and a soaring vocal melody. Perhaps even more exciting for a band that perhaps
held some of their Prog influences in check on their debut album, is the
15-minute title track that manages the task of combining effective and
emotional songwriting with thrilling musical developments that push the band to
the limit. “The Weight of the World” breaks new ground for a band at the
forefront of truly “progressive” music.
This
special limited edition set Sanguine Hum’s new album also includes a DVD
(Region Free / NTSC), “The Making of ‘The Weight
of the World’” which follows Sanguine Hum as they prepare the ambitious
follow-up to their acclaimed debut album, “Diving Bell”. Filmed on location at
Oxford’s Evolution studios, this fascinating and revealing film delves into the
complex processes that lay behind the construction of the band’s challenging
music. The documentary also captures Sanguine Hum’s first recording session
with new drummer Andrew Booker (from No Man). For fans of the band, this DVD is
an essential glimpse into the world of modern progressive music making.
