1958-2009 – III


1958-2009’s “III” is a collaborative work of Matthew Sullivan (Earn project, already reviewed here) and and Alex Twomey, whose album was released on Ekhein label. Lush, affectionate and pensive sounds of the two tracks are obligatory to give rise to a listener’s delight. Great backing for relaxation, meditation, it is as well a magnificent experience for direct listening, perceiving the gentle tones of synthesizers, smooth, unostentatious transitions and atmospheric, candy floss chords. You will not observe too much events and turns here, the ambience is predominately static, as if it is a solution of rainbow opalescent liquids, unhurriedly overflowing into each other. It is some kind of a restful movement, as if Brownian particles achieved the Enlightenment and calmed down, having found the best sequence, the sequence, which reflect the nature of serene, bright and colorful Existence. So, have a listen to 1958-2009’s “III”

Earn – In A Year


“In A Year” is a truly enchanting release from Jugular Forest label, which was created by Earn, also known as Matthew Sullivan. The sound is represented by guitar oscillations, drones of unknown origin, discrete organ hummings, which range from silent and melodic ones to furious harsh attacks with squeakings and overdrives. For me, the most favourite tracks are “Tri-City”, where unapparent airy melody tries to tear itself from the embrace of interferention signals, and “Feather (For Charles)”, where merry guitar chords are blurred into one united system, like a mixture of different colours, lazily blending with each other. However, the whole album is interesting and worth studying. I suppose, it is a nice present for a dronehead. So, have a nice psychic rest with “In A Year” by Earn.
