Risil – “Non Meters Volume 1″ – [Important Records]

Risil is a collective of musicians building a sound collage. Check out the fat, handsome looking list of contributors on the back. There is a whole toy box of sound sources here including samples, vocals, electronics, flutes, bells, mouth noises, guitar, drums, sequencing and field recordings. Things here get loopy, sometimes a bit skippy. Tracks are gentle yet busy, dynamic, never static, not quite ambiance…but not far from it. The drum beat drops in and out, ocassionally turning a meditation into a bouncy little jig. Beautiful use of vocal layering- soft, lovely singing is processed and stacked…like a whispered lullaby. Drones all over the place, underlining every wistful thought, as well as crackling and popping electronics to add a bit of sour to your sweet. A tinkering cacophony of ethereal sounds.. humming, floating, engaging and really quite nice. -Surfer Rosa
