Gregor Samsa - Rest Is Peace


If you want to buy a Gregor Samsa album in your local record shop, you better have to go to the letter S instead of G, that’s how I could found Rest ten days ago. Maybe someone in the shop thought that Gregor Samsa is the name of a musician, wrong my friend, it’s a post-rock band from Virginia formed in 2000. It takes its name from the main character of Franz Kafka's short story The Metamorphosis.
It’s a good thing that Gregor Samsa called their latest release Rest instead of 01:50:24… Imagine the title of their seventh one, something like 1 day 05:26:24… Difficult to follow (to understand, you must have a look
here to see how the titled their previous albums).
Rest is the record I was very much looking forward to hear this year. 55:12 was for me one the best surprises from 2006. This time, for his second full-length (after the released of two EP’s), Gregor Samsa has largely dismissed the guitar in favor of piano and keyboard flavors. Champ Bennett’s piano is crisscrossed by violin, cello, vibes and clarinet adding majesty to his murmurs, underpinned by the beautiful harmonies of Nikki King. Rest is a peaceful journey filled with languorous singing and minimalistic restrictions. Perfect for the sunny days we have now in Europe. A record that will listen a lot.
The album was release in May on Kora Records in North America and Own Records in Europe.

Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
