FROM BOCIAN RECORDS WEBSITE

This Italian group, with the great CD ‘Like Little Garrisons Besieged’ (2009) and two intriguing 7”s made in collaboration with Oren Ambarchi and Steve Roden under their belt, are back with a new release on Bocian Records with even greater momentum. Their music could be labeled as “post psychedelic rock ambient”. Its dreamlike soundscapes and mysterious, nocturnal atmospheres, hardly volatile, don’t waft upwards like some fluff, and the faint motorik skeleton and angular moans from the saxophone don’t seem to drive anything here. Everything here reverberates, crackling and creaking disturbingly, producing the entire chromatic scale. Much as ‘Reverie’ might seem the most accessible release in Bocian’s catalogue, it has little to do with ‘safe’ ambient. Rather, it’s more of sound guidelines revealing countless surprises.

The band give us the track “Reoccuring Dreams”, which walks the thin line between electro-acoustic avant-garde and dreamy psychedelia. Steve Roden, by his side, presents the song “Marvelous Is Flairs”: arch drones, vocal loops and field recordings driven by a melancholic pulsation.
