the snowbringer cult

Here is the work of Mehdi Ameaiane and Solage Gularte, two ladies from France who go by Istengrind and Twinsistermoon when playing solo. Natural Snow buildings is their collaboration. These pieces are drone-scapes, sound collages and acid folk lullabies. Spacious and slow.. riddled with stringy strums and opium lady vocals.. sounding dusty and far away. Something lovely out of a haunted attic. Two CDs of heady meditation. Gentle with a bite. Isengrind has more of a broken toy box sound, with lots of clinking and tinkering alongside the drones. Her vocals are murky.. more like ethereal hums. Twinsistermoon sets up a dreamland, her mesmerizing singing on many of the tracks. On the shortest she is accompanied by only the pickings of an acoustic guitar. Natural Snow Buildings will give you a natural and varied combination of these two.. ambient, organic, electro- acoustic..a freak folk ritual, shining through the haze -Surfer Rosa
