Comment: firstly, I have no hesitation at all while I am going to start to listen to any of the outings by the Latvian one-man project Sun Devoured Earth. Vadim`s music does have many hints at throughout this 14-notch album. It used to range from powerful, gloomy shoegaze and dream pop tinged guitar-based noise walls to more restrained, dark wave-ish incantations, however, being fulfilled with vital, sustainable energy. All these shifts used to realize in a seamless way where one track or mood is followed by other ones to build up something otherworldly and beatific. Although one could hear some similarities with such combos as Lycia, My Bloody Valentine, Galaxie 500, Slowdive, Cocteau Twins, Autumn`s Grey Solace, Love Spirals Downwards the result is unique due to its pristine fragmentation and idiosyncratic dreamed-out climaxes. Although the main motif of the issue is relatively dark-hued it paradoxically provides a breeze of optimism for you to amend your miserable, hopeless life in the middle of human being`s vanity. In this case let`s tell about it as an appealing, irresistible misanthropic example. For me, Sun Devoured Earth has been the favourite combo of me from Latvia, the southern neighbouring country of Estonia.
