🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences:  Ethereal, Neo-Classic.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: “Light Streaming Down” is an ‘early’ record from Australian formation Dandelion Wine. Originally released in 2002 the work last year has been re-released to celebrate its twentieth anniversary.

Content: The work is totally representative for the sound and approach of this formation. Ethereal, female, voices mixed with dreamy sound atmospheres. The playing of acoustic instruments creates an authentic sensation which comes directly through. From pure Cinematic reverie to Neo-Classic music this work hasn’t lost its original magic.

+ + + : Dandelion Wine maybe never got a deserved recognition outside their country and yet they’re adored by lovers of Ethereal music. When you’re listening to this ‘old’ work you can only but catch the magic emerging from the instruments and the vocals. It’s pure joy getting back “Begin Journey”, “Light Streaming Down” and “Cella’s Movement”. Some passages end with a kind of Psychedelic effect.

– – – : A few Experimental passages aren’t my favorites.

Conclusion: Music can be an invitation to travel and discover imaginary landscapes. Dandelion Wine is a great and experienced guide.

Best songs: “Light Streaming Down”, “Cella’s Movement”, “Begin Journey”.

Rate: 7½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
