The brand new dark ambient album from the Georgia (Europe) based female/male duo Phonothek is out now via the dark ambient label Cryo Chamber.

The “Lost in Fog” album offers a rich texture of what the label correctly describes as being ‘vinyl crackles, echoes and bowed strings’ but then also mixed with long trumpet fractions creating a very organic yet cold atmosphere (that somewhat reminded me of the cool Scandinavian atmosphere which Jan Garbarek transferred on his “Officium” album).

A very introspective release which is out now on CD and as a 24 bit FLAC download via Bandcamp (from which both formats can be ordered).

Here’s also a preview of the first track “Old Swings”

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.
