Headdress - Lunes

headdress-lunes Formerly known as Worship (they released a small cd-r pressing under that moniker), the elusive group who now answer to the name Headdress continue their dusk lit creep through the enchanted wilderness. On their debut Turquoise, they craft a beautiful loosely woven tapestry of ivy-like guitar tendrils, lichen-encrusted percussion, solemn mossy male vocals that reside somewhere between Jandek and M. Ward. The album’s fifth song “Babylon” sounds strangely like a deconstructed folk rendition of America’s “Horse With No Name”. Whether intentional or not, the glinting familiarity of the latter’s central melody adds to the existing subtle hallucinatory atmosphere of the proceedings. The crowning jewel of rough hewn Turquoise though is the sixth track titled “Moon Of Shedding Ponies”. It’s a frayed, meditative instrumental populated with generous turns of a rainstick and what sounds like howling wolves or banshees. If you dig the rustic, abstracted psych folk sounds of Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice and the many bewitching branches of the Jewelled Antler Collective, don’t miss this! ------------------------ ( Psychedelic-metal / Drone-metal a la Eluvium / Bardo Pond GOOD ). ------------------------ Artist - Headdress Album - Lunes Release Date - 2009 Genre - Psychedelic-metal, Drone-metal, Experimental, Dark-core Tracklist 1 Seethrough 2 Tip of the Pyramid 3 The Lost White Brother 4 EEEEE 5 The End ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Headdress - Lunes Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Recommendations: Grayceon Nadja Jesu Eluvium Cult Of Luna ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SUPERB TOURISTAS... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
