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.

Dark Voice Of Angelique - They

Dark Voice Of Angelique

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.

The Russian dream-wave band Наадя (Naadia) have regularly appeared since their introduction in 2016.

Наадя (Naadia) - Спутник (Satellite)

Наадя

Recorded in live performance in Moscow and of more punctuated countenance than music of theirs more usually featured.

Спутник (Satellite) revolves around a skittish electronica through which the scintillating voice of Надежда Грицкевич (Nadya Griskiewicz) echoes as though imploring from a buried sarcophagus.

Deeply rooted in Russian and Danish folklore the nine track album is a rich blend of mutilayered instrumentation and distinctive vocal of foreboding intensity which encases the room in a brooding, bewitching, oppressive atmosphere from which the listener has no desire to escape.

The first of the nine tracks is Urheimat.
