Plaines – From Silence – Audio

The New Zealand ambient-rock and visual arts collective, Plaines, released their eponymous LP on the 27th of August.

Plaines

The softly brushed velvet textured album (available on bandcamp) which has a dreamy gauze through which the eight songs are filtered drifts slowly through the room settling gently on the ears.

Given the still waters which emerge from the speakers, it may be anticipated there is little happening under the surface, far from it, akin to a swan frantically paddling beneath the apparently effortlessly gliding body, so it is with Plaines who elegantly deliver what are complex underpinning sequences and structures.

The fifth song – From Silence would seem to be an appropriate track to introduce their work.

Ioish – 1313 – Audio

A few hours ago the Indian ambient-rock trio Ioish revealed the LP Reconstructing Dreams.

Ioish - 1313

Ioish

The six song, approximately twenty seven minutes, album is comprised of luxuriant layers of progressive-rock that build quiet architectural complexities of multi-faceted washes that keep the listener focused within the angularity and extemporised feel of the compositions.

The antepenultimate track is the spectral 1313.

Dreamy waves of synthesis drift quietly through calmly repeated guitar chords giving the music a sense of gentle rotation while the bass creates a convex mirror reflection to the music as percussion trembles gently beneath the surface to which vocal drifts in an out of a soft-light focus.

The almost forty minutes, nine track album (available on bandcamp) is structured in a way that means the constituent parts can be broken, making for an album which, although best heard and digested in one sitting, can quite easily be consumed in smaller snacks – Enviado Desde Mi iPhone is the third track.

The first song to arrive from the EP – Medicinal Love – which was released as a stand alone single, available on bandcamp, on the 13th finds milkd referencing back to the gently blended keys, vocal and guitar of their eponymous EP, though with a more wistful footstep as the sparse piano forms a pondering brow.

Following their journey the past approaching ten months has been a pleasure and I look forward to the, as yet, untitled EP.
