My Country of Illusion – “Jambient Excursions ” – [Majmua Music]
Dreamy, droney, loopy excursions with musical and non-musical sounds coming and going and coming and going. As I understand it, this duo –Astro Glam Boy and Barnmaster Scud, possibly working with another guy named Mr. Tiki; the band info I found is not super-clear– played the material pretty much live on guitars and basses and maybe keyboards and stuff, then assembled the tracks with some sequencing and sampling and layering and whatnot. You’ll hear some pleasant, relaxed sections and some tense, uneasy sections too, covering a wide range of ambient moods. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is, but something about this music makes it sound a bit different from much of the other ambient-style projects out there, making it definitely worth a listen. Limited edition of 75 copies. Track lengths range from under a minute to over 12 minutes.
