Mus /Coti Split Single [coll] – [Pop Art Records]

COTI is famed producer/sound engineer on the Greek electronic
indie scene; he has 2 LPs out on of mostly ambient
electro melodics, and one more recent on that veers
toward a deep listening, gentle Moor Music / harmonious landscape.
???Crab Promenade??? is an outtake for those sessions, using a seaside
melody as backdrop, it skips along over ascetic rocks & sensual
whirlpools in an unflagging example of clean + sedate parallel melo-
harmonics/percussive electronica. Much the left-brain at the beach
to this, the left side, that is. The MUS track previously appeared on
???Little Darla Has a Treat For You V. 18???, and strolls the fashion
runway with a definite andalusian couture; subtle, stylish & serene ???
small jacket, flared skirt over layers of lace and tulle, detailed perhaps
with beaded frills and a bliss-out of pristine dimensions. Delectable,
of elaborate embroidery, as if finding a slow moment in this messy
world, ???Dexase Apagar??? is a pause of serenity in a swelter of frivolity.
Sanguine sounds from Greece and Spain.

  • Carissa’s Wierd – “You Should Be at Home Here ” – [Brown Records]

    Improving on debut, ???Ugly But Honest???, producer Chris Walla
    delivers a recording of immediate/emotional power within a
    carefully balanced parameter of acoustic string instruments,
    resonant lo-fi percussion and songs that are like secrets,
    veiled in violin & whispered in sleeping beauteous emulsion.
    CARISSA???S WEIRD founders Mat Brooke + Jean Ghetto
    front this 5-piece, which also includes accordionist Jeff Hellis,
    Sarah Standard on violin & drummer Ben Bridwell; having
    emigrated from Tucson AZ to Seattle with dreams of wistful
    contemplation (note somber tones + musical shades of grey)
    and a not-to-be-outdone riffing that adds a nice low-end punch
    to the material. Picks???.???Brooke Daniel???s Tiny Broken Fingers???
    ???I did not think those screams were for real???.??? Opening with a
    woeful violin line, it arrives finally with a medical solution???.the
    haunted ???The Color That Your Eyes Changed??? is a sad, blurred
    waltz of elegant harmony & displacement???..???Blessed Arms That
    Hold You Tight??? is Ghetto???s finest moment???.??????it???s all long good-
    byes???..??? sung with such an ephemeral nondeliberation of beauty
    that it becomes clear why the band scribbled out their lyrics in the
    accompanying booklet???.no point in overstating the obvious.
