Eydis Evensen – Bylur – XXIM Records
Bylur is Icelandic composer & pianist Eydis Evensen’s debut album and it doesn’t slay – it quietly slips into your interior space and slowly adjusts your mood. Tranquil and lush are the easy and trite ways to describe it, but it doesn’t make it untrue. If you’re a fan of solo piano, there’s a lot to like, but some pieces also have violin, viola, cello, double bass, trumpet, and trombone. The penultimate track, “Midnight Moon,” also features the voice of GDRN singing in English (No FCCs). Somewhat reminiscent of Olafur Arnulds, but lighter and sweeter. Music to reset your brain during and after fractious, tense periods.
