Genre/Influences: Experimental, Cinematic.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Swedish Moljebka Pvlse has now been releasing works for more than twenty years. For this new work, core member Mathias Josefson has been joined by three more musicians unleashing a long duration, piece of music of more than seventies minutes of music.
Content: The tracks sounds like being divided in 3 sub-tracks. The work sounds like an extended tracks featuring metallic sound treatments and dark, humming sound waves mixed with subtle play of real instruments like piano, harp and double bass. The track is progressively evolving while remaining pretty Experimental.
+ + + : The intriguing title of the work has been adapted into a dark and mysterious piece of music. The dark and hostile atmosphere still has something ghost-like which is achieved by the addition of real instruments.
– – – : The Experimental, but also Cinematic, style of the work sounds like it needs a visual extra and that’s precisely what I’m missing when listening to the album.
Conclusion: Moljebka Pvlse is tickling the listener’s fantasy world, inviting him to embark for a surreal, dark, sound travel.
Best songs: “The Distant Past Resounds”.
