United Bible Studies - So As To Preserve The Mystery US

"Incredible Adventures" by Evening Fires

Incredible Adventures is a sister release to Where I've Been Is Places and What I've Seen Is Things (out simultaneously on LP from Sunrise Ocean Bender records), and features longer tracks from the same sessions that didn't quite fit on that album. Opening with a strum-along hymn to the north 40, concluding via an extended plunge into the great beyond (as begun on Where I've Been...), and in between traversing a pair of drifting electronic landscapes that offer glimpses of ambient jazz and gloomy kosmische vistas. As a companion piece to the LP, Incredible Adventures (titled after a book by Algernon Blackwood) delves deeper into the album's terrain, while also expanding into some uncharted spaces out beyond. Four tracks, 38 minutes.

United Bible Studies - So As To Preserve The Mystery

"So As To Preserve The Mystery" by United Bible Studies

United Bible Studies return to Deep Water with what may be one of the crowning achievements of their ongoing musical journey. Since 2001 the Ireland/UK-based experimental folk ensemble has explored sounds ranging from traditional balladry to avant-garde noise; and while So As To Preserve The Mystery features plenty of the haunting vocal melodies and collective improvisation for which the group is known, it also rises beyond any genre and stylistic limits via an extended compositional logic that feels both centuries old and brand new. Alchemically marrying lo-fi psychedelic drones with sweeping orchestral arrangements, poetic folk song and classical structures; all in support of heartfelt paeans to nameless gods, apocalyptic requiems for the new/old world, and an overwhelming sense of wonder at the natural beauty of Éire and the Western Isles; this is United Bibles Studies at their transcendent finest. Seven tracks, 40 minutes.
