AllMusic Review by

Released by the small German label Hau Ruik, Sorgeist's first 7" EP, Les Roses du Matin (Roses of the Morning), comes on heavy pink vinyl wrapped in a lavish sleeve adorned by a detail from a decrepit Catholic sculpture. No details, not even track titles can give the listener a iota of information as to who Sorgeist is/are. The 7" presents three instrumental pieces. The first two are five minutes long and consist of violin and cello compositions. A simple, sad theme is repeated endlessly while getting gradually ornamented. In the second piece strings sound synthesized. Both tracks feature the melancholia and general state of mind of post-rock embedded in a gothic frame. The last track, much shorter, presents a similar melody using different sounds. There is an interesting tenderness to these Spartan tunes, but Les Roses du Matin remains a first effort. Sound quality is what can be expected from a bedroom production.
