Genre/Influences: Experimental, Abstract.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Orphan S.C. Wallace strikes back with a new work. This project has been very prolific in a very short lapse of time. The title indicates what it is all about; a conceptual work wherein the seven sacraments have been interpreted into two cuts.
Content: We get two extended cuts which are quite diversified in their global form. Multiple influences are emerging revealing slow rhythms, dark, psychedelic sound treatments, obscure atmospheres and even a kind of surprising, sweet, dark, Lounge final part. On top you’ll hear fragments of speeches which are into the concept of the work.
+ + + : It’s an accessible work in the Abstract/Experimental genre. The diversity of both cuts -which sound like featuring different parts, reveal cool passages. I prefer the second cut for its deep, buzzing, and vintage sound treatments while the ending part with slow rhythms and this kind of Dark-Lounge style is really great.
– – – : You really have to be patient and listen carefully to notice the true essence of the work. It however isn’t the most accessible music genre.
Conclusion: Religion remains a great inspiration to music artists and this interpretation of the seven sacraments is an original one.
Best songs: “Interpretation II”.
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.
