EnSync

ensynclpA little while ago the self-titled by EnSync album found its way to me and my turntable… I had listened a bit on internet and was very curious for the album… I can never really enjoy listening music online… I only use internet to “check” if it is worth getting a certain vinyl, cd or tape… anyway… what I heard triggered me… and now the album is here on vinyl and after I played it several times I can only recommend all who are into some wicked ambient soundscapes with tribal, ritual and occult touches to get a copy.

EnSync is a duo playing drums and electronics… yes like Silver Apples… but the music is more abstract and more occult sounding while sharing the trance indulging character with the 60’s psychedelic duo…

Another comparison that springs to mind is Cannibal Movie… although they play organ and drums… but their music has the same occult and ritual feeling…

EnSync deliver some subtle and distinguished ambient sounds which built a trippy and spacey listening experience… simply amazing and exciting and for sure one of the best things to be released this year!

You can listen to a full track here… and I have a few copies for sale here…

Sieben

sieben_spark_cvrI did not listen to my old Sieben cd’s for a long time when I decided to order his latest album… first I wanted to order the older ones which are now re-released on vinyl for the first time but in the end I got hold on a copy of “Each Divine Spark” released last year…

Since it got here it has been making quite some rounds on the turntable… even though the music is recognisable instantly as being that of Matt Howden the songs and this complete album is so strong it is not at all a disappointment… apparently Sieben has lost nothing of its creativity and flair…

This flair is best evident in the live performances… Matt Howden is alone on stage with his violin and pedals to loop pieces he plays… each track is built layer on layer with rhythms, melodies and vocals… this results in maybe a typical song structure but still this way of working does not make you end up with the same kind of songs over and over… as evident on “Each Divine Spark” album for example…

Here is one track from this simply amazing album…
