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.

"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.

E GONE – All the Suns of the Earth US

"All the Suns of the Earth" by E GONE E GONE is Daniel Westerlund, the creative force behind Swedish psychedelic folk rock group The Goner. With the full-band Goner on hiatus, for this new solo album Westerlund donned a slight name change and dove into a majorly scaled-up progression on the eclectic solo stylings of the earliest Goner recordings . In the same way a properly mixed drug will cure what ails you while a mis-forumlation could prove fatal, musical elements that in lesser hands might have been a disorienting mash-up – everything from sitars to banjos, old-school beats to ethnic percussion, stark folk picking to squalling electronics, heart-tugging balladry to strutting acid-rock – instead gets compounded in exact proportion through Westerlund’s ever-stronger skills in songwriting, performance, and production, making Suns… a perfectly-apportioned auditory tonic with potentially marvelous restorative powers. Nine tracks, 39 minutes.

Evening Fires - Live Spirits International

"Live Spirits" by Evening Fires Evening Fires’ (lucky) 13th release is their first recorded live in concert, featuring three extended pieces from various times & lineups channeled into one single ideal/typical set. Which might for instance stir into action with a rustic tribal drone invocation to wake the spirits, then lift off into some sort of electro-spectral celestial space prog excursion, before sailing back down to earth on a hefty slug of good old patented electric barn rock, all arranged and extended for collective trance induction possibility. Evening Fires live appearances being about as elusive as sasquatch sightings, this is likely the only way you’d have the opportunity to experience one, were you to be interested in such a thing. Three tracks, 36 minutes, one set.
