Comment: the year of 2015 has been a fruitful year for the Estonian alternative music scene because of many astonishing issues has been released throughout the year. For instance, Mart Avi`s Humanista, Tont`s Rändurvaim, Mavra`s Mavra (though it is a re-issue), Kroma`s Prince of the City. In fact, many albums are waiting to be listened to. For instance, Djerro`s XXmagick, Taavi Tulev`s Rand, Janek Murd`s Kuidas ehitada kosmoselaeva?, Ratkiller`s Comfortably Declined, She Bit Her Lip`s Viiv, Mikk Rebane`s Fragment, and Particles, Florian Wahl`s Sugar Trip. The biggest discovery for me was Day of The Triangle`s two albums Chair Conspiracy, and Salvia Sundays both of them have been released in 2015. There is little known about the artist but he is living in Tartu and is (was?) the keyboard player of one quite fruitless progressive rock combo. Fortunately he decided to launch his creative abilities with the listeners for whom it is great pleasure to listen to a fairly impressive music created in a time span between the years of 2009 to 2013. First of all, it is something of Kosmische Musik where synthesizers are set out to hover in a hyper-realistic realm. More profoundly, one could discern glacial ice-alike glimpses moving across the path between two channels and amplifiers. Mind-boggling sound effects are pushed to the fringe of the soundscape. At times those layers are mixed up with sublime concrete sound ones being supported by more and less motorik driven rhythms below. One might even suffer some vertigo due to those moving poignant noises to create some exuberant vamps within the soundscape. Nowadays the term “New Age” is mostly used as something wearisome and old-fashioned which may sound even ridiculous in some cases. However, Day of The Triangle`s exploitation of these seeds within the sophisticated melting pot is being far away from it. It could be compared with a wondrous, otherworldly dream of which you could remember faintly after restless sleep where fiction met reality in a warped way. Furthermore, stylistically this batch of compositions is a little bit more than a notch within the compartment of electronic music. One is sure the listener could also hear some influences coming out of more guitar oriented but heavily motorik rhythm propelled krautrock (Neu!, Faust) and psych-rock bands. Although these indications are obviously in minority they are represented over there though. In a word, it is a must be outing waiting to interact with your impulses coming out of your cerebral convolutions.
