Port-Royal biography
Port-Royal is a band formed in Genoa, Italy, in 2000, that plays post-rock with strong ambient, electronic and shoegaze influences. The founding members were Attilio Bruzzone and, life-long friend, Ettore Di Roberto. They decided to start a band after they realized that they shared similar taste in music and bands like Joy Division and Mogwai. Attilio and Ettore began practicing in Ettore's bedroom and later joined his brother Michele Di Roberto on drums. Michele came with the name Port-Royal. The other members liked the name so they adopted it. Emilio Pozzolini joined the band in 2001 and their first release was the EP called "Kraken", in 2002. Giulio Corona joined the band in 2003 and in 2005 they released "Flares", their full-length debut. The band caught the attention of many reviewers and fans of the genre with this released. Michele Di Roberto left the band the same year, but the band continued releasing music. In April of 2007 Port-Royal released their follow-up to their debut, "Afraid To Dance", and an EP, "Honved", soon followed behind.

Review by chamberry
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars Such lush and soothing music.

Flares is a gentle album that moves slowly and without much hurry. Port-Royal managed to create one of the most atmospherically pleasing post-rock release that's rich and full of soothing synth reminiscent to Sigur Ros' "Agaetis Byrjun", Daturah's debut, God Is An Astronauts' "All Is Violent, All Is Bright" and Mogwai's "Happy Songs For Happy People". The ambient in Flares takes a bigger role on the music compared to the previously mentioned albums (roughly 80% of the music is made up of tranquil soundscapes). The live instrumentation is sparse, but very effective when played and lifts the music to new highs. The crescendos are very few and far between and the effect isn't as heart-racing like other bands (but that's actually a good thing since it doesn't affect the flow of the album). There's also electronica beats in the album that appear just as much as the live instrumentation does.

The strength of the album is also its weak spot. While the ambient landscape is one of the better ones in Post-Rock, it can get too long and tiresome if you're not willing to devote yourself completely to the album. Another thing that drags it down is that its 77 minutes long! You'll need to have a strong appreciation for ambient music if you're going to sit through the whole album and enjoy it.

Port-Royal still managed to make something fairly unique with this album. Fans of Stars Of The Lid, NoSound, ambient music, electronica and the Post-Rock mentioned above may enjoy Flares. So don't pull back if you're interested, but if you're not a fan of ambient music then think twice before getting this.
