We Stood Like Kings - USA 1982 albumThursday 21 – 9- 2017 was a great mid-week day: We had We Stood Like Kings and SPOIWO in the cosy town of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. 2 video’s right here!

 

 

 

We Stood Like Kings

This Belgian based band is high on piano and movies. With the album”USA 1982″, they made a completely new soundtrack for the movie Koyaanisqatsi and that’s exactly what we got today: the full movie and soundtrack by We Stood Like Kings. ¬†Imagery and Postrock always work well and We Stood Like Kings delivered. Sometimes cosy and soft, sometimes raw and loud, We Stood Like Kings played a set that’s almost like classical music (certainly with te same intensity), but with a heavy guitar and drums. It’s Neo-classical stuff that suits the movie well. ¬†Truth to be told, it lasted a bit too long as this music and imagery requires very focused attention. Just wobble your head on a relaxing tune is not available here, due to lots of shifts in rhythms and styles. I enjoyed this gig and I have a lot of respect for the musical talents and artistry that’s at the core of We Stood Like Kings.

 

SPOIWO

Well, SPOIWO, the second time in W2 poppodium within a year, what a treat! I just love these guys. The heart warming messages to the crowd included. It’s such a fun band which creates a dark and cinematic atmosphere. Double synthesizers are the shit….. excellent stuff. Their live gig sounds a bit more heavy and raw, but that’s the way a live show should differ from the studio album. An excellent show and I’m looking forward to new material from this greatly talented band from Poland.
