Hakobune is the moniker for Takahiro Yorifuji based in Japan and this is his 17th full length! Side A, the title track kicks things off with some nice lush electronic drones. REALLY lush. So simple, and so great. Harmonious and organic, it doesn’t even sound THAT electronic. The harmonies shift ever so slightly, barely noticeable. I feel like an ocean is singing and the harmonies are just washing over me in waves, but gentle ones!
Side B, titled Maps, is also a drone affair but things sound a bit more – in music theory language – minor, or diminished, as opposed to the first side which had more of a major/happier vibe. Side B sounds a little more pensive. Some birds in the background. Frogs underneath the drone! Some very quiet waves crashing, or what could be wind. – Virtual Ritual
Walden Pond’s Monk is the brand new album from Portuguese musician and composer Tiago Sousa. Following the limited vinyl-only album InsÃ³nia released in 2009 on German label Humming Conch, Walden Pond’s Monk is the first album from Sousa released worldwide on both CD and LP formats.
Distressed notes run asunder on Tetra, a vinyl-only offering from the duo, Mem1. A current, quivering along these three fine works, creates a unique yet indistinct mass that, as we follow along in its icy wake, degrades and renders the listener inert, as we wait to meet the ghosts.
