I was very disappointed because I had to leave before they came on in Stockwell, when they were touring the UK with Painjerk... I love everything that I've heard by them.
I totally agree with DNT rec's the collab with Dilloway is fantastic. Also the split with Tusco Terror on E Peace is sweet.

I was at that show. They were indeed great. Wasn't that fussed about Pain Jerk but you can't win 'em all.

Anyway, all the Emeralds stuff I've heard so far has been at least good and most of it pretty great. The s/t on Hanson is really good and so is the recent tour tape they did. I can't remember if that one is s/t titles as well....

Also, the side project stuff is worth investigating, espcially Mark McGuire's stuff. Guitar Meditations is really nice.

Please do, man!!!!

I actually just bought What Happened, everything else I have is out of print stuff I d/l'ed. I really love this band.

There's no rules aside from "if you do cool stuff you get mass rep" haha.

I picked up Mark McGuire's "Tidings II" tape a couple of weeks ago, and it's totally beautiful. Definitely wanna get more stuff.


EDIT - Just ordered a copy of his Guitar Meditations tape from a guy on Discogs too, which was what I actually meant to buy when I bought Tiding II.

Great blog link, I had most of those, thankfully -- I couldn't put up with the rapidshare bullshit if I didn't have 'em. There's an ongoing thread on Fangsandarrows.com (a GREAT message board... way better than most.. heh.. and probably what dntrecords was referring to earlier) where everyone's uploading all the rarer, older, OOP Emeralds and other related projects. I've uploaded a couple myself. Check it out.

Yeah, it rules. All the people actually discuss good music all the time instead of just 3 or 4 people occasionally mentioning something cool. Also, it's extremely active, and people are awesome about sharing OOP shit all the time.

Emeralds - What Happened (No Fun Productions)



 
Emeralds' name has been on the tongues of bloggers and noise addicts in the know for quite a while now, but, of late, they seem to have encroached on the consciousnesses of a far wider audience. Solar Bridge made plenty of year-end lists in 2008, and rightly so; it was perhaps the first major statement from the group, whose work until then was largely in the form of limited run cassettes or cd-r's. The title of the trio's follow up, What Happened, might be viewed as their reaction to their recent success, as just over a year ago they were still awaiting the release of their "proper" debut, and now find themselves opening for Throbbing Gristle. It's a rapid ascent, to be sure, but if their latest disc is any indication, not an wholly undeserved one, no matter their ages or the hype that buoyed Emeralds' growth.
The presence of synthesizers in Emeralds' music has always been a conspicuous one, but "Alive in the Sea of Information" owes far more to 70s synth fetishists like Tangerine Dream than many of the groups with whom Emeralds typically cavort. Other acts in the noise/experimental underground have adopted analog synths as instruments of choice, of course, but few use them in such a way. Emeralds music isn't exactly retro, but its sound is sometimes of a spectral, other-worldy timbre that, while often too roughly hewn to be called new age, certainly makes heavy use of the spacey psychedelia that marked the early forays of the genre. What Happened packs, perhaps, a bit less of a punch that its predecessor in terms of the overall heft of the sound, but its two opening tracks, the aforementioned "Alice in the Sea of Information" and "Damaged Kids" make for some enjoyable and interesting synth-based mind melting. The rest of the disc's five tracks engage in a simpler means of expression, more heavily reliant on drones and repetition, with fewer flourishes bubbling unexpectedly into the mix. The album takes on a more somber tone, save for a formidably menacing latter half of "Living Room," with the trio moving from the colorful palette of the openers to the grays and blues of the rest of the disc. Emeralds invoke an effective pathos, but by the time the slow swirl of "Disappearing Ink" has come to its close, the earlier spirit of the album is only a memory. The tonal dichotomy isn't severe, but a return to the bright environs of the opening pair of tracks might have lightened the mood toward the disc's conclusion, spreading out the album's best material rather than packing it at the beginning of its duration.
What Happened isn't a jaw-dropper from start to finish, but it is a well-rounded musical statement, a cohesive series of improvisations that, whether moving in a more linear fashion or spiraling into unpredictable musical environs, the trio tackle with an impressive focus. A number of releases loom in Emeralds' near-future, and if this disc, especially its openers, are a sign of things to come, it's going to be a good year for these lads from Cleveland.

Highly recommended!!!

You won't be sorry. So much amazing music to download and discuss. Almost every topic has links to like a thousand albums, haha. That's not true, but ... well it kinda is. Everyone there is really cool and on top of shit. Really friendly!

so im finally "getting" this band. What Happened started to click and i can tell that we will have a beautiful friendship, im now listening to the aaron dilloway split and being blown away. im DLing solar bridge.

but most importantly, mark mcguire is blowing me away more than any other artist this year.
his stuff is mesmerizing.

Yeah, amazing what a guy can do with a delay pedal.

That sounded sarcastic but I'm being serious. Great shit.

They're cool sometimes, never amazing, apart from some of the MacGuire solo stuff I've heard. They were incredibly dull when I've seen them live.
