Comment: that outing makes you fall in love. By its spaced-out timbres and captivating melodies and blissful harmonies which used to endlessly whirl around your intimate zone and you have no power and wish to resist against it. Undoubtedly it is an ideal example of the so-called ideal pop. All the beautiful things seem to come from inside this 5-track whole – endless dreams, bittersweet, tickling perceptions, whatever more else you could find fro behind these thick orchestrated synths, pulsating rhythms and diffuse vocal delivery. Chillwave as a genre was being fabulous having been existed from the end of the 00s to the first years in the 10s. It was like a derivative of dream pop by finding a new direction toward synth-pop. It is a top tier within the genre though like a swan song of the deceased style. Mandatory stuff by any means.

Comment: behind the project is Pascaline Raphaëlle whose 5-track issue is quite disparate in its stylistic variety and length. It starts off with a silent electro-acoustic composition based on repeated sounds, guitar-based chords and effects, microscopic noises and hisses, and Pascaline`s chants atop. It can be considered an example of slowed-down, deconstructive post-punk. On the other side, it resembles those free folk/weird folk/freak folk numbers in a decade back where some artists from a new generation of folk musicians watched toward the forest and nature and therefore organic sounds. Indeed, one is listening to music which chimes as if recorded with the microphone from a distance (especially at Waterlidl). Nowhere is a very short, 1-minute yet the only rhythmic improvisation. The narrative will be changing in the last two compositions while introducing ambient and droning sounds into the mix. More profoundly, you can find out similarities with artists by Not Not Fun, Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, and her French compatriot Eléonore Hauguel a.k.a. Ellah a. Thaun. In a word, the strong issue.

The Cherry Blues Project – Psychiatric Years EP. 1 (2009)

  • DIY 
  • Indie folk 
  • Outsider music 
  • Folk indie

Comment: unfortunately I can't speak Spanish and because of that I can`t understand the message of these seven songs. Regarding the duo my previous and in truth first experience was related to Selectas Memorias del Invierno (2017, Petroglyph Music) which was absolutely different issue due to microtonal progressions, austere drones, and twisted ambient soundscapes (i.e illbient) music. Why should I speak Spanish because I presume one of the two Argentinian musicians (or both of them) does speak about his admittance in a psychiatric ward. At least I hope the sort of premise because musically it is backed up by sparse acoustic guitar chords which just create a monotonous background. The favourite of mine has been The Smiths for 20 years thanks to the balance between the quartet`s lyrics and music though the subject in Moz`s songs used to be a candidate in the aforementioned ward. It has a strong assuasive impact upon you. On the other side, you know, the medicine used to work a little bit/it is not curative with regard to psychological diseases either. It might be the current one does work (with message) as well. The issue is a part of the discography of a legendary Berlin, Germany-based imprint, Resting Bell Netlabel. Resting Bell makes sense. Of course, I suggest you listen to the second part of Psychiatric Years as well. The music will save the world if something would do it. But it does not save eventually.
