"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Afternoon tea & green tea

A fluttering, immersive live workout (Leeds, last month - full stream below) underlines the sloping, accreting excellence of Relmic Statue. Savour his languid, somehow submarine soundscapes via the snappily titled, utterly unsnappy netlabel release abscon (5.L) ditus ianua (on High Linear Music)...

Blurb: "abscon (5.L) ditus ianua" by Relmic Statute easily flows through whole sonic worlds and musical genres. One can't help but feeling that this album takes a tour through the personal world of its creator and through the vast places that modern electronica has made possible through technological wizardry.

This album is the perfect fusion of its elements. Filled with field recordings and manipulations, the experiencer is quickly driven through an evolving environment that at once embraces noise and ambience, music concrete coupled with a deep sense of folky romanticism. This work will surprise you, it will challenge you, but it will not leave your deepest desires for music unsettled.

This is the music of someone who embraces what is and what will be."

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
