Album Review

Black Swallow + Other Songs

sonic textures twist
soft and sparse musings
around mournful melodies

this release is from Richard Skelton AKA Carousell. Intensely somber and dark but light and airy at the same time. The sparse guitar and piano highlight the scritchy violin overtones. vocal wailings on “The Clearing” by Autumn Grieve. Some faint giggles or sobbing can also be heard. My pick is “Which is the Blood”, but they’re all good. “Owl Lantern” and “the Clearing” track together, making for a nice 10 minute piece.
