SIDEWAYTOWN is the new musical project of Markus Baltes (ex-Autumnblaze). With the stunning debut “Years in the wall”, a conceptional album, Sidewaytown is creating a wide range of soundcapes where the ethereal beauty of Shoegaze – most known from bands such as Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine – merges with earthy and edgy guitars of the Post Rock genre.
In between well-known elements shine through with early TripHop influences, added by some heavier leanings from Anathema to Katatonia. With his clean singing Markus Baltes perfectly covers the spectrum he needs for his performance, with no need for additional male or female counterparts.
Years In The Wall is an excellent musical realization of an unusual story, a pure pleasure of listening, hauntingly beautiful, full of emotions and sophisticated turns in music. It’s the soundtrack… the soundtrack to your own life…
