Artist: How To Cure Our Soul (@)
Title: Saigon
Format: Download Only (MP3 + Lossless)
Label: Audiobulb (@)
Rated: *****
This project is an audio-visual duo working with digital and analogue instruments and Saigon is their second release. In the press notes is present as "a long meditation" where "each imperfection is built into the atmospheric experience", so, instead of construct a perfect and hyper detailed sound, they try to use the small glitches of their instruments, asking the listener a closer attention to details.
"Aurora" opens with a quiet drone whose resonances slowly develops while another one is juxtaposed and starts to create a sort of dialogue creating a sort of static landscape ever changing. The same structure is used also in opium and, instead of generating a boring release, is able to let the listener focus on imperceptible changes or small details.
This a typical headphone release that lost most of his impact, i.e., in a car listening, in noisy environment but has a charm for all fans of this type of music. Not for everyone but recommended for fans of the genre.
