Incense is a rock trio formed in 1998 in the Netherlands. They quickly won several national and international newcomer contests and released in 2000 Assorted Songs, a compilation of early demo recordings. Although Incense started their career as a noise rock band, they decided to follow with their two next albums Approx. 45 Minutes and On Tips Of Wings We Walk a more sophisticated way. Incense still play rock music, but also use odd instruments like old synthesizers, electric piano and several brass instruments. The opener Forever surprisingly doesn't rock, but is a very beautiful ballad, a delight for every post rock fan. The next songs Static and 20/20 have a retro touch and remind me of Motorpsycho. By the way, this album was produced by Pieter Kloos who has already worked together with the Norwegians. Incense have made a great energetic and raw album with a charming retro touch. A masterpiece of rock music.
