Magic Carpathians, the – “Denega ” – [Obuh Records]

Thurston Hunger   5/29/2006   A Library, CD

So Atman was a tremendous basement psych
project that lasted well over 20 years but
vanished into the air in 1998…in it’s
stead we now find these Carpathians, named
after the mountains in Poland where the
lead singer hails from. Anna’s voice is a
rare bird, cutting through dense clouds of
reverb. A lot of the songs here are remixed
to an even more blurry status, sometimes
submerged in little sonic tide pools. Too
stony for folk, to edgy for mystical music,
gypsy techno, ethereal jazz, makes me think
of ambient pop in some ways but not so
charted out. Man, this is the balm…a
soother of exotic instruments. When they
performed at KFJC, there was more of Anna’s
voice, this is a driftier side to the Magic.
