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.

New album Land of Evergone by Ali Murray

Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.


Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
