The final track on the album My Kargyraa was recently performed as a live version at the Sziget 2018 festival in Hungary earlier this month, this being approximately a minute shorter than the studio version on the LP.

Longer stay readers may have forgotten the band name Hartyga as it was back in 2016 they last featured – though will be likely to immediately recollect the traditional Tuvan throat singing of Nachyn Choreve.

Originally scheduled for release last year, new tracks were added and the release delayed, to reflect of the slightly different overall soundscape of the LP the original artwork (shown above) which made strong reference to the influence of Japanese culture was changed to the one below (in music embed) which makes greater emphasis of the dreamy soundscape of the overall scope of Ignition, though still drawing from the initial well of thought.

My selection of the nine track album is the seventh – Say.

Ignition – Bountytweex is available on iTunes.*

Dark Voice Of Angelique – They – Audio

The Russian drone project Dark Voice Of Angelique released the LP Noire on the 14th.

Noire (available on bandcamp) whilst still of dark cloud, is of less dystopian menace than music previously featured.

The nine tracks are less compacted and resultingly afford for the listener to more readily explore the melodies and nuances of the roughly fifty six minutes album as the multifarious layering of electronica, synthesised instruments and vocal flows through the room.

The fourth composition and my pick of the release is the just over six minutes – They.
