Album Review

Palestine, Charlemagne & Schaefer, Janek – “Day of The Demons” – [Alga Marghen]

cinder   7/13/2012   12-inch, A Library

Beautiful, distant, cinematic drone. Shruti Box, Voices, harmonica, carillon bells, chimes, melodica… It has the sound of a desolate, isolated, melancholic feeling. The part of a movie where you’re stranded and left for dead, the scorpions smell your fear as your face drips with blood. Doomy and gloomy, but of the southwestern touch. Gorgeous floating moans, and echoing bells, almost monk temple-esque. The second side is a bit more optimistic, starting with sounds of children, people and life. It soon gives way to what sounds like an organ with a stuck key. Both Charlemagne Palestine and Janek Schaefer are known as sound and visual artists, musician and composers.
