[Music] The Rosenshoul – Low Winter Sun (Deluxe Edition)

The Rosenshoul are a side project of the folks behind Flowers For Bodysnatchers (namely Duncan Ritchie).  If you thought FFB were bleak, this goes a bit deeper into the bowels of Hades.

What is particularly remarkable is the fact that time stands still for a good portion of this album.  One can feel like they fell into a bottomless pit and know that there is no place you’re going to crash at.  You simply fall and fall into the music, and the coldness and terror emanating from the album never seems to cease.

This is dark ambient music that would have been stellar listening during the 1990’s.  It’s incredibly well-done.

[Music] Muslimgauze – Eleven Minarets

It’s a bit perplexing to think that Bryn Jones (a.k.a. Muslimgauze) has been dead for 20 years, and yet continues to ‘release’ music.  He must have been far more prolific than anyone could ever have imagined.  Thankfully, the quality of a good deal of this archival music has been excellent.  Not everything holds up, but this release gives the fans of the man what they want – experimental beats with a techno sensibility, made for dancing with heavy boots, I suppose.
