Comment: my first contact with Ludo G. Maas` music was probably related through No-Source imprint. The artist comes from the Netherlands and as it can be seen at the Bandcamp site the hiatus by the artist did last five and a half year. Welcome back again! This 8-notch outing is the first swallow of Maas´ three-part EP trilogy. Indeed, the whole embraces the extended play format because the compositions are quite short extending to the three minute exactly at their longest point. The Flemish indie, folk and electronic music mixed scene is sometimes conveyed with a loose term, duyster, and I can remember one artist (Wixel) from within it who did a similar trick. However, the music is great over there (it is not surprising with regard to Maas` previous releases, though). Firstly, the issue contains technically very interesting threads yet the result is boosted even twice due to an emotional and emotive impact behind it. I have to admit it must be considered even an epic and cinematic one here and there (for instance, Dielman, Lights of Tomorrow). It might be I have listened to albums of 2018 a little but it seems to be the first one for me to be a serious one (I could remember for System Morgue`s Distress, and Massimo Ruberti`s Granchite Yumtruso PT. II either). I even got MGMT`s Little Dark Age as a vinyl but it is just an eunuchised flicker (read it as a way too calculated product) in comparison to it. The emotion and the sense of freedom are one of the most important aspects with regard to the music. And as a consequence of it – the product does not have them or does have just a scarce bit. I guess Lao Tzu would have listened to it in his austere mountain hut. In a word, the start was very promising – let's wait for the next one.
