[ Sleepwalking ]. The elegance and charm “Sleepwalking” brings to the ear is evident, even in the pit of the abyss and the darkness of the underground, secret beauty of intruding ivy, unveil itself on the outer surface. As “Sleepwalking” dwells in silence and in despair, a narrow beam of light reflects admirably in between it’s charm and the reflection of elegance music.

Pristine as it is, the entire record is accompanied by some gentle crushing wave melody, slow-ambient unfolding in tranquillity and slow-developing beauty takes its form in colossal waves.”Sleepwalking” is the third releases by [ Invsible Elephant ] and it’s by far the most prominent work of “Rob”. The loudness / pitch is set to the most absolute perfect level, giving the sound an undeniable warmth.

Delving deeper and deeper in “Sleepwalking” the album disentangle flash lights sceneries that takes you to the past, beautiful past memories that flashes hazily and in the mist as it comes and fade in sequences. I’ve listened to this album over a dozen times and on each listen I’ve discovered a different melancholic memories. The atmosphere the album, unveil is typically fluorescent.

Sphere of ambience oscillates in slow motion and gently fade into the atmosphere while the vocals on the other hand, are masked as a soft and gentle rumble. The kind of music that drives you to say “Soft Scream” if that makes any sense. This record is amazingly gorgeous and it shines wholesomely with beauty. Six tracks, nearly forty minutes without any monotone moment, you are about to discover a hidden side of [ Invisible Elephant ].

I’ve waited almost four years to hear new materials from [ Invisible Elephant ]. While the wait on one hand was certainly long, by the same token the end result, however, delivers something truly spectacular and definitely, most definitely beyond my expectation. Top notch movements on “Sleepwalking” are Slow Wave, Never There and Drift, although I have to admit the whole record is simply epic. 2014 BEST SLOW-AMBIENT ALBUM. Stream the entire album if not get the record. This one is an ABSOLUTE MUST.

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.
