Here’s a CD in a brown recycled cardboard package so you probably know what it sounds like as everything in brown recycled cardboard packages sounds either pastoral or droney right? This one ain’t a collaboration. It’s a split CD with 2 tracks by the 6meister who is travelling a darker doomier path than usual but it still has his instantly recognisable trademark guitar musings there to keep you grounded. Egsun is a name I’ve not heard for years but they make a lovely neoclassical racket. Strings and dare I say more twinkles! It’s very maudlin sounding (in fact the whole CD is) so if you’re after some party music you’d better stop reading now! It’s a lovely sounding CD with the Egsun tracks being my favourite on this particular release. more...
