The Evpatoria Report biography
Biography taken from their website with the band's permission:

The Evpatoria Report was born in January 2002 and the band consists of two guitars, a bass, drums, a violin and a keyboard. The band offers an instrumental rock combining serenity, power and intensity. In order to enrich some of its compositions, The Evpatoria Report is willing to collaborate with other musicians, as it was the case with Reverse Engineering, the Orchestra of Ribaupierre or the Union Choral society of Vevey.

The band's activity can be summarized through the release of its first EP (2003), followed by its first album "Golevka" (2005) as well as through life performances, in particular with Mono (2004), Calexico (2004) and Red Sparowes (2006). The Evpatoria Report currently works on a new album and maintains a keen interest for all sort of project, notably that of a soundtrack.

2 stars Nice Report!

Once again I took advantage of the internet facilities and downloaded this free EP, from a band previously unknown to me, but whose name caught my attention. They are The Evpatoria Report, a post-rock band from Switzerland that started the project almost ten years ago. Here we can notice that this musical genre has reached places that are not known for having these kinds of bands, but that is a proof of post-rock success.

So in 2003 they released their first EP, entitled "The Evpatoria Report" in which we can have a slice of their music, and a glimpse of their talent. This EP can be downloaded from their website, so as I did, I invite you to do it. With two songs and a total time of sixteen minutes, here you will surely have a good time.

"Naptalan" is a seven-minute track that starts slowly and little by little progresses. Guitars first, then drums and bass together began to create a strong track. The part where keyboards appear adds a new atmosphere and direction to the song. After four minutes there is another change with a kind of symphonic sound (due to keyboards), that opens the gates to the final explosion, and final part of the track. It is the heaviest sound, the softness is gone and now the music is emotional and explosive. You will like it.

"Voskhod Project" almost reaches the ten minutes, and it is my favourite out of these two tracks. It starts slow (once again), the structure and formula is practically the same, the difference here is the use of new elements such as violin and the diverse figures every 4/4 . The song may be repetitive for a couple of minutes, but later it turns heavier and gets the listener's attention. But well, it slows down and changes the mood and the atmosphere, now it has a mellow, nostalgic and beautiful sound, here is when the violin enters and gives new colors to the track. The song makes some other changes in time and tempo, but keeps the same structure. Pretty cool track!

My introduction of the band left me with a nice taste, so now I want to hear more of them. These two songs together make easily to the three-star rating, however, in my rating style I don't usually give more than two stars to less than 20 minutes albums.

Enjoy it!

4 stars THE EVPATORIA REPORT are a Post-Rock band out of Switzerland. This album in particular is rated highly by Post-Rock fans so I decided to pick it up. I would describe the sound as cinematic, it's like I was listening to a movie instead of watching it. Lots of guitars and strings here, and it can go from calm to very powerful in a hurry. I just like how powerful the atmosphere is, this has such a full and lush sound to it.

"Prognoz" opens with atmosphere galore as different sounds come, go and hover. It kicks in heavily after 3 1/2 minutes then settles quickly with strings. Gentle guitar after 6 minutes. Beautiful section. Drums and bass join in after 7 minutes. This sounds so good. It kicks back in at 10 1/2 minutes. "Taijin Kyofusho" opens with the sound of a transmission between two parties and i'm sure one is in outer space. Gentle guitar joins in then strings and bass. Drums follow as it builds. Keys before 5 minutes. It settles a minute later yet it sounds urgent and it's building. Intense at 8 minutes. A calm 10 minutes in.

"Cosmic Call" opens with this repetitive guitar line. Strings then drums as it slowly builds. It settles before 4 1/2 minutes. The tempo picks up before 7 minutes then it kicks in. Settles once more and we get some spoken words 8 1/2 minutes in. "C.C.S. Logbook" opens with drums that fade out then guitar and drums take over. Great sound here and the tempo will shift throughout this tune. It stops abruptly to end it. "Optimal Region Selector" drifts along in a spacey manner. Drums 3 minutes in. Powerful sound before 5 minutes then it settles a minute later. It ends as it began. "Dipole Experiment" opens with strings as atmosphere rolls in and gets louder. Vocal melodies too. Emotional music right here.It stops at 5 1/2 minutes then atmosphere returns before we get a beat at 7 minutes with keys and strings. More vocal melodies follow. A moving track to say the least.

Easily 4 stars, and if your a Post-Rock fan it's essential listening.

4 stars This is for fans of Sigur Ros, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, pre-Hex BARK PSYCHOSIS, early-Piano Magic, 4AD arrtists, Tortoise and the '90s shoegazer scene...most notably Slowdive. Fans of the Detroit space rock scene such as Windy & Carl and Fuxa would also enjoy this. Basically, a nice fusion of the aforementioned groups. 4 long atmospheric tracks, the shortest being 11 minutes. _Mithridate_ is a definite highlight with some narration sampling which seems to be a commentary of some sort(haven't quite figured it out yet, but it has kept me coming back to this track often to figure it all out). _Acheron_, the closer is another highlight using white noise/distortion to great effect. Recommend to all post rock fans, although I do not hear any math rock. 4 solid stars.

Review by Prog-jester
Prog Reviewer

3 stars THE EVPATORIA REPORT is well-known band among Post-Rock fans (well, at least I think so!), and the usual thing about them is eternal comparison to YNDI HALDA, JOHNNYTWENTYTHREE, THE PIRATE SHIP QUINTET and loads of other bands who mix guitar-driven Post-Rock of EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY with Epic strings of GY!BE.

Chronologically, THE EVPATORIA REPORT (and lesser-known bands like BRIGHT RED PAPER and DETWIIJE) were the first to bring violin to the forefront, as the leading instrument. I like what I heard on 'Golevka', but I can't stop thinking of YNDI HALDA in the same time - I mean, I like YNDIES a LOT more. It's not fair to compare, but TER's stuff seems to be less interesting, epics are mostly built on one melody/chord progression, and climaxes are too predictable and even a bit boring. I like the whole idea and the very fact that each one can choose a band to his own likings (X likes YNDI HALDA, Y prefers THE EVPATORIA REPORT, etc), besides TER have released their stuff before others (there's a self- released self-titled EP from 2003 available for free download from their site, grab it while you can!)...so I feel like this review mostly spins around my personal moan 'I like it, but I heard it from YH and liked their stuff even better!' As a conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend this album to everyone, especially to PA Post-Rock lovers (more reviewing, guys!). 3.5 stars!
