Cold Spring presents:


Twll Du (‘Black Hole’) is an ominous dark ambient journey through vast atmospheric landscapes. Each beautifully crafted opus is based on a bespoke field recording and is named after an area of Cwm Idwal, home of the Twll Du. Swelling, monolithic drones reveal the majestic power of the mountains. The music conveys an immersive atmosphere and is intended to be played as the listener falls into a deep sleep. 

Llyn Y Cwn (‘Lake Of The Dogs) is a small lake at 715m in the Glyder mountain range of Snowdonia, North Wales. The Devil’s Kitchen is the name given to the dark, black crack which splits the rock of Clogwyn y Geifr (‘Cliff Of The Goat’) between Y Garn and Glyder Fawr. The Welsh name for Devil’s Kitchen is Twll Du, meaning ‘black hole’, because of the plume of steam that is often seen rising from the crack resembling a chimney. It’s said when steam can be seen rising from the chimney, the Devil is cooking.

NORDVARGR “Tantum Melior” CD (125th Cycle) 
After the success of 2018’s ”Metempsychosis” album, Nordvargr´s most song based recordings ever, we asked close friends and collaborators to create their own interpretations of songs from the album. The result is an interesting blend of styles and methods that expands the Nordvargr universe even further. With exclusive reworks by MZ. 412, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio, Vassafor, Visions, Kristoffer Oustand, Spetsnaz, Michael Idehall, Thorofon and The Benjamin Codex, the spirit of “Metempsychosis” mutates splendidly into new and unexpected territories.
Artwork by Dehn Sora.
Edition of 500 copies in 4 panel Digisleeve. 9 Tracks.
Running Time 37:42
Release Date: May 1 2019

Spheric Music presents the CD
Gabriele Zibret „Happy Songs und Herzenslieder“
Spheric Music SMCD 8912
Release Date: May 3rd 2019

Genre: Healing Songs / Wellness / Health
Gabriele Zibret sings her self-composed, varied songs with a clear
voice and at times fascinating polyphonic canons.
“Happy Songs und Herzenslieder” („Happy Songs and Songs from the
heart“) are positive and life-affirming songs to sing along, swing along and
listen to.
Songs about everyday life and the desire for more calmness, songs for more joy and for inner peace, songs about ships sailing across the Rhine to the North Sea, about the green ray of light and Heiugesu, the song of healing and health-promoting singing. Songs about sound, about life, love, laughter and the song “Fly and smile” about Robin the redbreast that flies out into the world and spreads a song of peace and joy.
A colorful, relaxing and refreshing song mix for those who like to sing, swing and listen.
Just for the fun of it, without pressure and without music sheets.
As a balance to everyday life, to recover and gain strength, for individual and collective joy, to relax and enjoy and to encourage health.
A small wellness program for the body, the mind and the soul, a source
of energy and a chance to meet oneself and other people in a human, sympathetic and appreciative way – to experience moments of inner and outer peace.

The album, which was composed in the remote valleys of Wales solely by Rebecca Rose Harris and Franklin Mockett, offers ruminations’ of solitude in the isolation of nature. Each song is a meditation laid to tape, forming an album of a natural order of thought and feeling to take us to great heights.”Samana was realised in the heart of an Austrian forest surrounding a secret lake 3000 meters above sea level, during a journey the pair undertook across the natural wildernesses and distant cities of Europe; unaware of when they would return or where the road would take them. Between themselves, Rebecca Rose Harris and Franklin Mockett are multi-disciplinary artists. Franklin crafts the instrumentation, recording, and production of the music to tape, whilst Rebecca Rose is the visionary behind the conceptual imagery, artwork, lyrics and film. The process by which all works are recorded is of great importance to Samana, who compose their art in their analogue recording studio and darkroom in the remote mountains of Wales. Samana inhabit a musical space somewhere between Weyes Blood, Nico, Beach House and PJ Harvey, yet they possess a unique spirit born out of their nomadic existence. Each song is written with its own distinct weight and significance, born from the interpretation of dreams, the philosophies of ancient rituals and personal experience of love, loss and deathStartlingly engaging and intense live performers, the pair most recently played a handful of shows earlier this year in their native Brighton with Micah P. Hinson and The Howl & The Hum and a show at the Shacklewell Arms in London. Last year saw them make an acclaimed appearance at the Great Escape Festival, where they played a hypnotic show at the One Church and they have recently announced a number of shows in the forthcoming months.
