Terrene are a group from Seattle, WA whose music is very atmospheric and jangly. This is their debut album which is produced by Phil Ek (Built To Spill, The Shins, Modest Mouse). You can also hear influences of Sigur Ros and some Smashing Pumpkins (guitars mostly).
Most of the songs on this album are very beautiful. All of the instruments are heavily layered, and the vocals are mixed in almost just like another instrument. Media Sift Through Heart Rises (track 7) is faster paced than the others, with an urgency and the style of gy!be. One of my favorites is Stereo (track 5) which features the jangly guitars in the forefront and has build up. Unwelcome (track 9) is a change to electronic tones with a build up to guitars. 51 (track 1) is a strong opening track with indie pop leanings. Andromeda (track 2) is extremely layered and ethereal. Enemy Landlord (track 8) is an answering machine mesage from an annoying landlord.
