Though Americans know Tiersen mostly as a whimsical-yet-technical composer, he has, in his native land, released music that can be grouped in with a number of different genres, including post-rock and even progressive rock. For Dirt Lane Tiersen has taken the guitar-driven style he's flirted with along the way, creating an eight-song epic that should alert a new fan base, likely comprised mostly of 20- and 30-something males who dabble in early 70s electric jazz, loved Radiohead deeply for a period and now talk mostly about Canadian collectives, "movements," Sigur Ros, Mogwai and, probably, French films.
The strings and accordions, xylophones, harpsichords and melodicas pop up here and there, but the focus is on the electric guitar, which Tiersen is masterful - if not showy - with when it comes to composing.Read more ›
One other recommendation: Yann has been on tour with this album. I'd strongly recommend seeing it live. The performance was easily one of the top three concerts I've seen, full of the desperate energy that runs throughout this album.
