Comment: this 7-track issue is an amazing listening thanks to its mystical peripheries of sublime noise plateaus, exuberant post-rock jitters and spaced-out incantations. Actually the album represents a huge periphery on its own. The more you listen to it the more you get involved in a vast picture of galaxy or outer space. Indeed, it seems to be no music anymore, it is rather a tremendous prayer or chant to call people back to their own roots. Despite its technical approach and premises the album chimes truly in an organic way like a swarm of bees or hornets frequently. At times Nicola Fornasari aka Twyxu´s masterpiece reminds of Seefeel`s more experimental glimpses into a morose ambient and electronic mixed universe. All in all, it is one of the best albums in 2014 so far. Fabulous.
/Math rock, Art rock, Epic, Avant-rock, Experimental rock, Post-rock, No Wave/
Comment: Wood And Wire is a fine Australian label whose catalogue is a part of those labels thought for distribution of cutting edge music produced on the Green Continent. Mudlark is a fine example of how merge avant-garde tendencies with math rock and post-rock bottoms in an organic way. More concretely, Zimdahl encompasses lots of majestic overdrives embellished with hi-hat sounds, clockwork-alike and electronic effects, repetitive sonic patterns and angular yet delay-enriched guitar chords and there are up many interactions between guitars and rhythm sections. Undoubtedly such kind of music does have more similar characteristics with academic circles than pop-oriented guitar pop bands. Still it sounds somewhat poppy in a strange and otherworldly way (similarly to Mice Parade, for instance). It is truly artsy and marvellous created for the listener`s sake who likes music. In a word, it is a very mature work with a lot of depth.
/Musique concrete, Organic electronica, Conceptual, Experimental electronica/
Comment: this issue consists of two relatively short-running tracks particularly regarding the concept of it. It is a tight blend of concrete sounds, extended vowel experiments and spacey horizons. In spite of its mellow and dulcet nature the release sounds like an endless, even somewhat uptight outlet. However, these contrasty sides regarding the premises and effect allow an extraordinary dimension to the whole. It sounds like a lullaby for unidentified flying objects. If you are deemed to be an UFO then you should listen to it. It is thought for human beings as identified flying object as well. The issue is released on Galavrna, an Italian label for field recording music.
