LE LENDEMAIN is the new project between Danny Norbury and David Wengrenn. Following on from their early collaboration under David’s Library Tapes moniker (Sketches), we find the pair delivers a more personal album of hazy dialogues. There are real moments on this record where you feel that you are let into the private lives of it composers; tracks such as ‘Lois’, where they are telling the tale of a friend. Other times the mystical finds it way to the mix as with ‘Petrichor’, where the organic lays on a bed of electronic sounds that have managed to find there way on to tape by some ESP. The depth of sound throughout this album make you constantly reassess what you are hearing as your focus is shifting to the fore and background. Writing about such music is always difficult, as words can never really penetrate the emotion of sounds. The music from this album is a journey of two instruments and the outside world, what it adds up to is a Soundtrack to the moments of unconsciousness, of times when one is dreaming, or the beautiful in between state. Conversations where you understand completely yet are unaware of the tongue. This delicate music, that is so skillfully weaved together of the most fragile fibers that one false move would result in the whole thing falling apart. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ( There's a couple of tracks on their MySpace ~ Last.fm that you can listen but I' ll strongly recommend to fire-up from here and GET IT. Well by all means visit the necessary pages and leave a shout though. All I'm saying is... don't skip this one.

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.
