2007-01-31 Aerial - The Sentinel is out today!
It is out today! In stores on the 5th and reviews are starting to drop in. Seems like people from all over are embracing the 2nd album from Aerial. Uppsala Nya Tidning gave them 4 of 5 Read You get this gem for only 80 Skr and that is including shipping. If you want it straight to your computer/ipod etc you can download the album from Klicktrack (iTunes, Audio Lunchbox, Nimson etc coming soon!)
If you will not listen to me than please take Avi Roig´s (Its atrap!) word for it..."Aerial's new album "The sentinel" is so good, it makes me want to cry. If I was in an aspiring post-rock band and I heard this record, I would sell my instuments and quit music. If there's any album that deserves the adjective "face-melting", it's this one. Right out of the gate, it roars like some unholy hybrid of Mono and Emperor crossed with Him Kerosene. Epic barely begins to describe it. Soaring dual guitars, a vast, dramatic vision and a recording that blends them together perfectly. When I first heard this, my brain barely recognized it as a band - it sounds more like a single entity than four separate people. I imagine Aerial as some inhuman living/breathing thing from which this amazing music emanates. Eventually the parts become more distinct, but the magic never dissipates. I was shocked that Aerial could top last year's "Black rain from the bombing" so easily, I will be even more shocked if anyone else releases something this year even approximately this good. Right now Aerial is untouchable." 9 of 9
And that is Not enough! Courtesy of Nomethod and It´s a trap! we give a new MP3 from the album, entitled You will all die, all things will

2006-12-15 Aerial are No 1
Our first signing Aerial was chosen Nr 1 Album of 2006 over at It´s a trap! Black rain from the bombing is an amazing album and if you still havent got it...get it. It´s a trap says "It came out in January and stuck with me throughout the entire year. That alone says something. As for the music, it's an amazing display of epic bombast and twisting riffs. Why can't more post-rock be noisy like this?". We agree. In other Aerial news, pre orders for The Sentinel will start January 5th! Their bombastic 2nd album comes in a nice digipak. YES!
2006-11-24 Aerial releasedate set & digital single released
The Sentinel will be released in Scandinavia on January 31st (same date as BRFTB 1 year ago), it is a mindblowing 2nd album and everything seems to go Aerials way these days. Aerial will start touring on the new album in January. Both Sweden, Europe and hopefully some more exotic places! To give you some kind of idea what the new album is like we´re releasing a FREE single today! The song is called "My god it´s full of stars" and it is the 2nd song on "The Sentinel". It is Really hard to just choose one song from this album and treat it as a single, well it is impossible because this whole album needs to be listened to from start to finish. However...check out the "single". It´s Free, so spread it around! It comes in a zip file with a printable cover aswell! Direct link: http://www.nomethod.se/Aerial_My_god_its_full_of_stars.zip

2006-02-01 We have decided to start a series of limited vinyl releases
The series is called Nomethod Favourites and it´s basically as the name says...our favourite records on vinyl. Since there are labels out there that were faster, smarter, richer than Nomethod we see this as the only way to get to release all those great records that we werent around to sign...but seriously...we are extremely happy/giddy and proud to announce the first release in this series and also the 5th Nomethod release. The Bearquartet have always and always been our favourite band. Ever since we saw them at Tegsparken in Umeå maybe 15 years ago we have always followed this band and their albums. The Bearquartet have always had a very special place in the Swedish music scene, a place of their own, always acted with total integrity and always done what they wanted. Their latest album is a great example of that. So Nomethod#5 is The Bearquartet - Saturday Night on vinyl ladies and gentlemen.

Our good friend Avi Roig runs the best Scandinavian music site QGMR No Language EP is out. 2005-12-12 So! We signed another band from Sandviken/Sweden! Actually it´s an offspring of the band Aerial but not a sideproject, some of the same people. The band is called THE GIANT´S DREAM. very low key, cinematic, electric/electronic pop music...i get the feeling of some of the better work from Air or the overall feeling you get from the Lost in translation OST oand definately Hal Hartley/Ned Rifle inspired. So damn good. Their Nomethod release will contain 6 songs. Look out for more on the release in the Mailorder/Shop page aswell as sneak listens at Klicktrack! We are aiming for a february release. 2005-12-08 The Guestbook will be up shortly. Today we got a postcard for you from Aerial! (spread it around). Btw, go to klicktrack & listen to some songs from their upcoming, mindblowing debut album "Black rain from the bombing".
2005-12-05 We have opened our website, it is still under some construction. hata data. Big thanks to Joel for loving the devil & Avi Roig for setting up our Shopping cart. Nomethod is a recordlabel, publishing company & management. Browse around and you´ll get the idea. We have our 2 first releases set! QGMR from Stockholm & Aerial from Sandviken. Two bands that are truly amazing and we hope you´ll like them. QGMR have been friends to the Nomethod for years and their latest recording was just too good to not do anything with, i´m so glad we got the 3 songs that are the No Language EP. The QGMR No Language EP will be out on January 10th. Aerial...va kan man säga? Aerial could be the best band i have heard for MANY years. I can´t recall a recording that made me this excited. First couple of listens to the recording was like...yes really good...one day later i could´t stop listening to it, i´m listening to it right now. Förbannat bra. i REALLY hope there is an audience out there for Aerial...Nomethod are gonna try & find it. Definately a MUST MUST MUST have for anyone who ever liked anything with Sonic Youth, Mono, Motorpsycho (blizzard era) or anything in that genre. I think it is the best band i´ve heard doing this kind of stuff since Maybe SY´s Daydream Nation or something like that. I can´t understand why they arent one of the biggest bands in the world....ok överdrift. Men ja det är fan extremt sjukt bra. The Aerial ALBUM (4 song album) is out on my birthday...January 31. You can also buy all our releases in digital format (mp3) via the nice people at KLICKTRACK. It is cheaper yes. Men inget omslag.
