[Music] Katarína Máliková – Pustvopol


 
There’s not a lot of music I could compare Slovak chanteuse Katarína Máliková to. Her sound is utterly unique, and I could only imagine bands like Dead Can Dance as sharing her ethereal vibe. The instrumentation could fit somewhere comfortably between folk, fusion and Fourth World Ambient (think Jon Hassell).

For fans of these genres and of artists like Loreena McKennitt.

[Music] GlerAkur – The Mountains Are Beautiful Now (Luxus)

GlerAkur is the monicker of Icelandic composer Elvar Geir Sævarsson, who also happens to the sound engineer for the National Theater of Iceland (Þjóðleikhúsið). The music sits comfortably between post-rock and ambient music with a cinematic feel to it.

[Music] O Yuki Conjugate – Into Dark Water

O Yuki Conjugate were an early experimental music troupe out of Nottingham, England. They were not a conventional noisemaker, as their music straddled the line of ambient, experimental and ‘Fourth World‘ music made popular by Jon Hassell and Brian Eno.

This album is a reissue of an album from 1987. It sounds brilliant even after 30 years.
