  6. […] “This interesting release (the first on vinyl issued by Hibernate, adding a more remarkable patina to its main theme, related to nostalgia, whose musical translations seem to attract and fascinate an increasing number of listeners) signed by Wil Bolton aka CHEjU and titled from a quote referred to the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice – “Under A Name That Hides Her” – echoing in Wil’s consciousness while reading “the Space of Literature” by Maurice Blanchot seems a sort of skinny dipping in the ocean of memories or I’d better say it’s a walking in unforgettable gardens if I consider the occasional field recordings with a specific spatial position (chirping birds or maybe call notes taken in the ruins of a medieval castle in Beaumaris, North Wales, seagulls and the lapping of waves around a lighthouse in Anglesey, noises grabbed during a rain shower from behind the window of his flat in Liverpool, other alluring natural sounds grabbed within a forest in Scottish Highlands as well as sounds taken from inside atrain during a journey in North Africa), a spontaneous mental dive which seems to have been conceived when Wil was looking for inspiration by many guitar-driven bands such as The velvet Underground, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine and The Cure he used to listen when he was a young pup. Those musical references are just rhizomatic and even if they look like dropping from tubular bells, nylon guitar plucks, electronic celesta and harp-like tolls, they’ve been masterfully amalgamated by Wil in the exhalations coming from inside his magical sonic cauldron taking heed of the main features of mnemonic process with bright sounds which suddenly black out, broken harmonies, blind alleys and cones of shadow. After “Time Lapse” on Hibernate and many release for other labels (Cathedral Transmissions, Distant Noise, Time Released Sound, Rural Colours, Boltfish, Kahvi Collective and so on), Wil Bolton comes back on the stage with the umpteenth great and catchy ambient record.” – Chain DLK […]
