[ Until The Cosmos Takes Me Back ] is an endless story created by the finest of ambient sound, an experimental journey that should be cherished and cultivated for its profound delicacy and overloaded beauty. Originating in Portugal, the Portuguese based project [ We All Die! What A Circus! ] have created something timeless and endless in every proportion and every direction distinctive-ambient sound can travel.

Earlier last week we’ve featured two singles from [ Until The Cosmos Takes Me Back ], one being ( From India To Gaza I ) which is indeed one of the high of this album with a strong guitar-lead dwelling in the air with its simplicity and the other being ( Old Village In Space ) which truly combines a pure sense of nostalgia with an eerie slow-pace solo.

And now for the entire album which evolves around the notion that our very existence is a consequence of millions of years of evolution and endless connections, rising and fading. It deals with the fragility of life as a whole and as an individual, always remembering that our time here is limited. It all happened on this pale blue dot, our home, Earth. We shall always remember that every single life, past and present, lived there–on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

[ Until The Cosmos Takes Me Back ] opens with a spatial feel, almost like two planets colliding to each other creating a cosmic aura. The sound is instantly soothed with slow and comforting vibrations echoes. As the album progresses from one movement to the other a restful vibe tend to dominate while giving you this mega feeling of being floated on a thick patch of cloud. By now you’d think, that’s about it but no, that’s not it, more chimes and layers are sure to follow in a constant and progressive flow.

It’s like walking on the edge of a dream, figuring the difference between reality and fantasy, caught in between two worlds and awaken from a long trip where serenity and tranquillity are the core reflection of life. And this is just one facet of [ Until The Cosmos Takes Me Back ] as this album is equally drone(y) as it is peaceful. On various segments the album tend to bring a sonorous deep tones while also reflecting mysterious atmospheres unfolding into a restless realm with a low end rusty chords.

This title invokes a broad ambientscape, in many respects like those created by Rafael Anton Irisari’s moody electric guitar drones. The best part of this release is that it’s an easy listen with a variety of themes and atmospheres. One can literally listen to this album dozens of times without the feeling of having his head exploding. The moody guitars are backed by soothing notes and it makes the entire listening experience a journey and a half. This is definitely an album you don’t want to miss out on.

Hanetration Profile

Short quotes from various sites / web-zine are straight to the point, concise, direct, relevant and upfront… the music speaks for itself on this one. MEGA EXPERIMENTAL GLITCH-CORE that comes out extremely appealing and pleasant. [ Hanetration ] attributes more than just glitch element as it portrait the meaning of sound and vibes through an unspeakable trance. If you fancy the likes of [ Oyaarss ] ~ [ Improving Silence "Mixes" ], [ Amon Tobin ], [ Nitrada ], [ Subheim ], [ Rena Jones ] and [ Murcof ] then consider yourself in for a superb treat.

[ Mixtape Episode 8 ] comes from London based producer Hanetration who’s Tenth Oar EP is currently being circulated around the music blog-verse. Needless to say, we were hipping it long before anyone else was. This is an astonishing project, playing for 1 hour and 4 mins, and cross-fading many of the tracks brilliantly. Modestly describing it as “objectively spectacular” Hantetration, who still remains anonymous has the following say:

I focused on the records I was playing around the time I made the Tenth Oar EP, and which may have influenced its sound. It’s effectively a bunch of drones, glitches and sound collages, but there’s real variation in there; some amazing textures, tones, rhythms and melodies. Plus a Malian kora/cello duet, a bagpipe solo and an improvisation by a five-year-old elephant.” In other words, something for everyone.

DISCOGRAPHY:

2014 – Murmurist EP
2013 – Timelapse EP
2013 – Nae Troth EP
2012 – Torn Heat EP
2012 – Tenth Oar EP
2012 – Mixtapes Series 8

Over the course of two and half years we’ve all had the privilege to be treated with plenty of fresh materials from a number of monikers, out of which one of them is [ Hanetration ], fresh materials per-se… referring to drone-ambient pieces through a stable’s full sonic range. From the experimental part of a journey to the everlasting slow-motion decaying textures [ Hanetration ] warmth and glowing vibrant on “Murmurist” is not disappointing at all to the absolute generation of minimal-ambient producers. Check out ‘bigin’, ‘morning’, ‘wither’, check out the whole EP for a mega treat.

fydhws profile

[ Теми и Идеи ] is the side project [ fydhws ]. He has been working on this project for the past six months. [ Теми и Идеи ] translated as (Themes and Ideas) and taking a radical turn to neo-classical style. [ The Rigged Orchestra ] got nothing to do with drones, noise, ambient, or guitars although the compositions were developed on acoustic guitar. Go get it guys it’s an amazingly beautiful album.

This is zero-frills rock, (sort of, not really): guitar, bass, drums, a pedal board, the occasional piano. Wordless and unorthodox, it is nevertheless clear there is a plot to all of this — a screen full of character actors, menace, and resolution — you just won’t be able to divine it. Distorted, unjagged guitar; bass drum worship, air raid dissonance, and unabashed ironworking. It’s difficult to remember a hard rock project so fiercely independent, one so tirelessly devoted to discovery.  __[ Review by "The Muse In Music"  ].

Minimalistic, very slowly progressing primal sonic atoms, threatening infiltrating drone overthrows, static krautrock effects, and a kind of sound which comes very close to the sound-art-like approach. Knob-screwers` output indeed. __[ Review by "Recent music heroes" ].

There’s a lot of experimentation on show with musical boundaries pushed in every way possible. On top of this is a lot of layering in sounds creating a all encompassing atmosphere that drags you right into the middle of the sound and doesn’t let you out until it’s over… __[ Review by "Tomatrax" ].

[ The Sound "Four Movements In The Key Of D" ] is a diametric opposite of the previous album [ 9 ] in terms of style and atmosphere but as with the previous releases, this album also follows the same idea of continuity and conceptual work of composition and presentation of the music as a type of symbiotic relationship between the movements. The album is meant to be played without pauses in between tracks and as one continuous flow of the 4 movements.

NOTE: The Following albums are available for downloaded by request via mail, on the artist Bandcamp contact form. Those are some seriously good albums, you might want to consider dropping the artist a line for a free download link. Truth be told ALL releases by [ fydhws ] or [ Теми и Идеи ] are absolutely gorgeous.
