Das Mörtal

The first of the ten tracks on the album – Midnight Rendez-Vous – is a just under three and two third minutes track that wraps up the listener in a downy dreamy softness in which the mind becomes hypnotised by the looping synths.

glaswegians – orwellian – Audio

glaswegians is a modern-classics multi-instrumentalist from Canada.



The latest EP severance (available on bandcamp) came out earlier this month. Although only consisting of four movements, the release lasts for roughly sixty seven minutes, so before contemplating hitting play – do ensure you have plenty of time.

Featuring a list of instruments, too long to go through individually, though includes: percussion; brass, reed, bellows and pipe – wind; strummed and bowed – string; keys and even a frying pan – the music has a continuity and fluidity that holds the attention as although seemingly a plethora of the abstract the compositions have a mesmerising organic flow. Each movement is centred around a different theme, which although disparate, when heard in completeness makes for a cohesive whole.

The seventeen and just over two thirds minutes opener – orwellian – seems a sensible place to start.

Rogez – I Want You – Audio

The Canadian experimental-hop creator Rogez recently released the LP Princess.



From the album – I Want You is an absorbing collision of architecture that, like shattering glass caught in sunlight, fills the room with refracted colours of the rainbow as the fragments of silica explode in random shards across the floor.

The Battle Of Lights – Reinvention – Single Review

The Battle Of Lights is a soft-wave project from Canada.

The Battle Of Lights

The Battle Of Lights

From time to time new material surfaces, by The Battle Of Lights, in which the listener is invited to immerse themselves in the muzzy electronics that drifts through the room akin to a flotation tank meditation with the mind and body loosing sense of space, time and gravity as the curls of sound gently massage away the stresses of the day in combinations of synthesis, instrumentation and gauzy vocal.

This is not music to play prior to heading in to negotiation, unless you are desirous of conceding every point, rather to play with plenty of time on your hands whilst in recumbent pose with curtains drawn tightly shut.

Somewhat appropriately although Chris and I have been in communication since last year – it is over three months later that I get around to introducing The Battle Of Lights with the newest track to surface Reinvention.

I am unable at this stage to offer you any social media page or website to discover more about The Battle Of Lights.
