manja ristić – kairos & the dwellers

The sound artist Manja Ristić takes you on a fascinating tour of the Korčula Islands in Croatia through field recordings of her sonic encounters. The auditory landscapes created are at times haunting and calming, grating and soothing, cute and harsh. It’s a fascinating listen that will transport you to the islands. Listen below:

clorinde – The Gardens of Bomarzo

Listening to “The Gardens of Bomarzo” by clorinde today. This double album is a great listen from top to bottom.

In the song, “We will either find a way, or make one – Hannibal’s Elephant” we get the answer to the question, what id Big Lazy went on a beach vacation? with it’s twangy guitars. The next track, “Between virtue and vice – The Dragon” reminds me of the opening to “20 Minutes to Save the Human Race” off our latest album, “Horror Songs”. Track 11, “Abandon all thought – The Mouth of Hell”, sounds like something out of a Lord of the Rings movie soundtrack.

My favorites off the record are track 2, “A single feather fell to earth – Pegasus” and 18, “She lay in silence – The Nymph”. What are yours?
