Artist: TRUE SWAMP NEGLECT (@)
Title: Sleep Function Lost
Format: CD
Label: Superglider (@)
At the first listening the album of this band coming from UK could sound boring and melancholic but I thought that the eleven songs of the CD needed more time and attention to be judged as, even if they are guitar based songs, there are experimental moments (as on the final "Sleep Function Lost" or on some moments of "Umbrella Weather") which change totally the sound. After the second listening two bands came to my mind: Velvet Underground and Dinosaur Jr. The True Swamp Neglect sound is less noisy rispect J. Mascis' band but their songs are equally tense. Personally I liked the other Superglider's stuff most but check their website to make your own opinion.

Title: afairytaleelatyriafa
Format: 2 x CD (double CD)
Label: S'Agita Recordings (@)
A new release by Raffaella Graziosi/Regivar after "Colonna sonora per un film immaginario" (see archive); this time it's a double cd-r, with circa 90 minutes of music. "afairytaleelatyriafa" follows the steps of "Colonna sonora...", with its mix of deep cosmic ambient and eerie concrete material crawling in here and there. But, in a way, I feel this is a much more mature, and more daring, release. Possibly even darker, though it's probably a matter of personal perception. Definitely akin to past greats like Klaus Schulze or Edgar Froese, but still "modern" in its approach, I'd immediately associate this release with label-mate AAL's "In Luce"; they share the same hallucinated, but soothing mix of light and darkness.

Title: The impossible days
Format: CD
Label: self-released
Giuseppe Verticchio is easily one of the most prolific and interesting names in the Italian ambient-electronic underground, and it's about time he got the attention he deserves from labels and public. "The impossible days" is a mature, inspired cd combining the best characteristics of works like "Line of Fire" and "Frozen" (see archive) but taking them one step ahead. Far from being repetitive, "The impossible days" seems to take the deep synth layers and field recordings from "Line of Fire" to a different plan; I'd say this is more meditative and indirect in its approach, though not less effective. Actually, these compositions gain strength from their rarefaction, like the brilliant incipit "Lost signals", with its minimal, hypnotic pulses, definitely my fave track here. If I had to mention some akin artists, I'd say the ritual ambient of Steve Roach, Vidna Obmana and Robert Rich at their best has left its mark here; but bear in mind Verticchio's sound easily stand on its own. Really worth checking out, like every other releases of Nimh's.

Title: Circolo della Vela vol. 1-2002
Format: CD
Label: Il Circolo della Vela
Inspired by elitarian and hierarchical sects (Thule Society, Tatenokai, deviated boy scouts, Masonic lodges à la "Un borghese piccolo piccolo"), the Circolo della Vela (Sailing Club) offers here its first sonic output. Strictly limited and definitely esoteric in its circulation, this 1st volume presents musica nova by mostly old known faces in the Italian underground grey area. Genres range from atmospheric electronic/industrial (Folkvang, KZ9, Der Feuerkreiner, Mushroom's Patience) to dark-wave (Bohemien), from pounding industrial noise (Rapid Action Brigade, Foresta di Ferro) to sexy lounge-funk (La Dolce Victima) or deranged techno (DBPIT), from electro-EBM (XP8) to folk noir (Inner Glory, Spiritual Front). The Misty Circles/Runes & Men lodge seems to be particularly influential, also offering an unreleased track which alone is worth the whole cd, i.e. Ain Soph's demo version of "Gli amanti tristi" - by far one of the best tracks of the "Aurora" masterpiece, here in a moving choral version. I think all songs are unreleased, alternative mixes etc., which adds to the rarity and value of this document. Can't comment on eventual 2003 releases because this has NO FUTURE written all over it.
