BLIND CAVE SALAMANDER (Ita)

"Troglobite" Digipack 2009

(Shayo)

This is the project of the always creative and dynamic spirit of Fabrizio Palumbo, former member of the Italian cult band Larsen. And this time BLIND CAVE SALAMANDER, emerges as a mutating amphibian organism projecting itself through seven nocturnal soundscapes in which you shall experience the enigmatical sonic frequencies and harmonies created here. One more time Mr.Palumbo presents just a part of all his creativity. "Troglobite" is the exposition of in deep sonic spaces in which is found the strong character and dynamism, always moving into different facets through the whole tracks. "Moonfish" for example is an experimental ambient composition with such amazing sensitive moments, due how atmospheres are created here. "Blue Lagoon" is another track built into such emotional elements which are mould specifically through the use of electric guitar, viola, piano and other elements creating an specific mood which the listener must find in order to have an exact idea of what BLIND CAVE SALAMANDER is all about. Through "Transition”, things goes a bit different, offering you melancholic piano passages as the main structure, surrounded by field recordings and other electronic devices."(Set The Controls For) The Heart Of The sun" arrives with such hypnotic electronic strings and guitars, moulding a strong structure mixed by the perfect work of voices, suggestive to the point to get hypnotized by such subliminal mixture of music, voices and atmospheres. Is always interesting to have the opportunity to get such kind of releases for review, because it gives to you enough basis and elements due the dynamism and experimental nature, ready to be explored by one as journalist. Next comes an untitled track, which is a fine composition full of harmonies and beautiful soundcapes, created to the excellent development of electric piano, cello and viola. Closing the album are "Magma" and "Used To Be The Last”, the last one a monumental, hymn of melancholia and sadness in its maximum expression. A very interesting release if you are looking for something sensitive, hypnotic and original.
