"Frolicking Through The Meadow" Cdr 2011
(Dark Meadow Recordings)
Well,This Experimental project comes from Argentina,and has lost of amterial which you shall explore,so this is our first experience reviewing this project,although we have heard about this one time ago.This time PLAYING WITH NUNS comes with an album basing itself into mutative experimental elements with strong emphasis in diverse elements as drone,and ambient with interesting elements. "Frolicking Through The Meadow" is a 4 track album which opens with "The Quiet Grass",a repetitive exploration of sounds adapting perfectly to the ambient field generated by the sutile movements here and there. Then comes "Meadow In My Mind",a more suggestive piece with intense moments from start to finsih,the track is dark,penetrating and well performed."T.V Static(Insoluble)" is the third one,and really a very stong one,full of dense passages and enigmatic elements surrounded by such ambient atmopsheres collapsing and emerging all the time to create a vaporous piece of drone ambient nature here.Closing the album is a track called " The Last Field Recording On Vinyl",a more experimental structure crawling with thin sounds,and diverse elements surrounded by such eclectic elements which enrich so mcuh the music on general! so,a very interesting release worth to check!

I AM ESPER(Usa)
"Glowing Valleys" cdr 2011
(Dark Meadow Recordings)
Justin Palmieri is an american artists dedicates to promulgate and release music with his project I AM ESPER and Salamander Lane Productions.This minimalistic drone ambient visionary,has just released "Glowing Valleys",cdr,which includes 5 compositions in which you shall experience the drone minimal atmopheres,bathed with a primal mutative enviroment able to penetrate your mind in a sutile but effective way.The track"Stars Above The Frozen Forest" is a great opening track,full of dynamism and ethereal guitar sounds collapsing all the time,the next track is called "The Dark fog" and its nature its more strong in perspective,the guitar elements are rawer and dense than the last track,carryng an spectral atmophere all the time.I AM ESPER is one of such projects which you will love or hate ,due the highest emotional structures in each one of the tracks included here. Through "Mid Night",things goes more calm and ambient oriented,with thin sounds and dressed melodies apearing from the whole picture of the composition. "Morning Dew" is another track,following the album,and the voyage continues with such minimalistic structures through psychodelic guitar elements and atmopshres creating ghastly visions!!The album finishes with "July 19,2009",another incledible exposition of drone elements,guitar atmopheres and more yet to explore! For more info just visit Dark Meadow recs!!!


SYRINX(Uk)
"In The Shadow" Cdr 2011
(Dark Meadow Recordings)
The sentitive organism called SYRINX returns...this time with a new release,"In The Shadows" and album with such sensitive and floating atmopsheres as previous material. A solo long 56 minutes composition in which you shall float far beyond a new dimension of possibilities where shadows veils will be opened in order to discover its many dark,and isolated faces.Again Ed Plenderleith (Pink Venom), Dave Saunders (Glowingpixie), and Jon Bayliss (Ghoul Detail) surprise us with a very interesting album full of intense moments due how the track is evolving from start to finish.such Long drone ambient composition mutating all the time in order to giving you the possibility to explore the psychedelic dark voyage to the center of shadows where everething is beyond the illusory world to be a concrete latent force.Without a doubt the guitar atmospheres and ambient layers generated here are just brillant in the way as slowly the drone elements emerges to absorb everything and creating diverse atmospheres again and again.The use of homemade thythmic instruments and the use of fieldrecordings among other elements gives a diferent touch to the whole track in general.lets just hope to continue exploring the intense moments generated by SYRINX next time...when we have the opportunity to float again In The Shadows!!!!!
