Well here is a little "le indie gem" as the cool kids now and days call it. I'm actually shocked that this flew under the radar because this is without a doubt one of the most stunning albums to come out of 2014. It carries a violent punch with the embrace of a soft hand in it's melodies. Glitchy guitars, pounding drums, thick walls of sound that hit like a brick wall... they're all here. At the same time though, you get the embrace of a softly sung vocalist who brings a calm to the madness... well, when one of their vocalists aren't screaming. This album is strong in it's melodies, mixing everything from sludge, post-rock, shoegaze, punk, and other genres; and while slightly inconsistent, it is unquestionably awe-invoking.
You can stream, download, or buy ULTRA SILVAM here. If you like what you hear, consider supporting Stiu Nu Stiu by throwing a few coins their way. You can also share this album with your friends! Becuase your friends adore shoegaze sludge post rock punk metal, right? Just remember, a little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! <3
