A WHISPER IN THE NOISE – Dry Land
mainstream record thirty
The self-descibed “orchestral garage rock” band from Hanska, Minnesota, give an extremely humble and personal touch to gorgeous, string-laden rock music. Ever since their inception nearly 6 years ago, A Whisper In The Noise, have been almost completely self reliant. It´s exactly this type of hard work and perseverance that has molded the group into the amazing and brilliant artists they are today. Eschewing the more traditional use of guitar or heavy keyboards that might be associated with the band´s umbral sound, the instrumentation of A Whisper In The Noise has included the cello, violin, French horn, synth/electronic keyboard, bass, and percussion in some variation.
The resulting minimalist expression, unique arrangement of instruments, and the inclusion of visual media elements for live performances has seen the band described as “art rock.” Now in 2007 the band has composed their most accomplished album Dry Land, produced by long-time friend Steve Albini. The album, chiming in at 11 tracks and 55 minutes, is a full fledged attack on your senses that will leave you astonished.
