Tarentel – in particular, From Bone To Satellite – offered safe passage to many future Temporary Residence artists, including Explosions In The Sky, Eluvium, and Sonna. It was the album that first gave Temporary Residence its first sense of legitimacy, and provided a context for the forward-thinking, emotionally resonant, experimental rock from which the label built its roster and reputation.
Be that as it may, we have to call it something and as such, Tarentel's first full-length is an epic of a post-rock album. The title From Bone to Satellite is an obvious reference to man's evolution, and as this is indeed an ever-evolving band; this document is an accurate representation of the band during its formative years.
In the late 1990s during Tarentel's genesis it wouldn't have been a stretch to classify them along with the myriad other producers of what would become known, as is usual with music clichés, pretentiously and inadequately, as post-rock. That they would evolve so far beyond their rock-like origins only serves to illuminate the limitations of classifying music of any sort into genres. Be that as it may, we have to call it something and as such, Tarentel's first full-length is an epic of a post-rock album.
Yes, another post-rock band. The process that Tarentel try to establish within the album works to some extent. Despite the unnecessary droning that accompanies the introduction in every song, the songs don’t really start to gain steam until they reach the middle of the track. The simplicity cannot be stressed enough within this album, it isn’t that it’s boring, but rather dynamic in its stature to allow me to endure nearly 75 minutes of buildups within each track is kinda incredible.
The title is a reference to the Stanley Kubrick film "2001: A Space Odyssey".
I remember thinking of Tortoise's debut album as their closest cousin or influence. In response, two years later Tarentel came out with the famous "From bone to Satellite". The album starts with "Steede Bonnet" a piece that reminds me the first track in the great "Mi media Naranja" of Labraford. With a rare old west sound, like music for a Sergios Leone movie or something. This track starts slowly, building a melody until the 9 min mark aprox.
