Title: Lahva
Format: CD EP
Label: Thisco
Rated: *****
Third release from Fernando Cerqueira's solo project Rasal.Asad, one lengthy 20-minute track, curiously called "Anomia", not "Lahva". While surely being no dramatic departure from the previous records, Cerqueira's cosmic ambient has apparently become more minimal, and I think this change works fine. The electronic element, with ethereal synth sounds, is still prevailing, but merged with deeper, less recognizable frequencies (field recordings of a seashore, perhaps). The whole track has a dreamy and nostalgic feel, and evokes blurred images of deserted, yet not hostile places.
