The lucky collaboration with the amazing Danish artist continues and KrysaliSound is proud to end the reissue series with his very first release. 
Some artists need time and a lot of work before finding a musical path, the perfect conjunction between soul and maturity is often hard to reach. I think ojeRum was born with this special feature and this was highly perceptible listening to his debut album. All of the music we know by him is just a natural consequence of this seed of art. “There is a Flaw in my Iris” will be available in vinyl format and in a new digital mastering.

“Maps of reason” in Rockerilla

Due viaggiatori alla scoperta di un mondo ancora non del tutto svelato. Alle spalle del loro vagare si formano lunghe scie di suono, attimi colmi di immensità elettro-acustica che rilasciano luminescenti sostanze visibili a chilometri di distanza. A vederle dall’alto formano un accogliente vibrante reticolato lungo quanto il tempo di un sorriso, quanto basta per abbandonarsi privi di barriere, distesi sull’onda continua e profonda di un suono che produce languore e crea ipnotica dipendenza. Un viaggio iniziato nel 2012, quello dei ToC, un tragitto nel cuore del suono che continua a stupire per la sua superba bellezza. SEGUITE LE MAPPE!

“There Is A Flaw In My Iris” in Beach Sloth

A unique rustic charm informs the entirety of øjeRum’s “There Is A Flaw In My Iris”. Blurred beauty emerges from the intersection of folk and ambience. The beauty of the album comes from its patience. Nothing ever feels rushes for the whole of it explores gorgeous melodies and careful gestures. Outright soothing the many layers interact in such tender ways ensuring that all of it simply shines. Songs play off each other making it all feel akin to a grand journey. Usage of a deliberate sonic palette further adds to its majesty.

Unspooling with such luxury “Mist” opens the album up on a high note. Vocals add to the surreal temperament with the echoes of “Il y a” for it all gently wafts up into the sky. Great restraint is shown on the immersive “Tonerum” easily the highlight of the album. Full of mystery the various effects give the whole of the album an elusive quality. Blissed-out electronics work wonders on the meditative “When”. Guitar tones ring out into such wide spaces on “Picture” where øjeRum occasionally touches upon Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy with his articulate lyricism. Wisps hover up into the air on the spacious scope of “Matka”. Sprawling and lush, “Pristine” has a toy-box melody quality to it, ensuring that the acoustic and electronic merge together.

On “There Is A Flaw In My Iris” øjeRum goes for an ornate lovely world, one that has such dreamy hues.

“Maps of Reason” in Toneshift

The Brussels-based duo present their new LP on the KrysaliSound label, and it’s a perfect home for their fusion of guitar drones, field recordings and hushed vocals.  Since 2011 Tropic of Coldnesshave pursued a blissed-out take on harmonic ambience that folds ethereal elements into their compositions.  There are rarely any sharp edges on their output, only the smoothest of shapes inhabit their sculpted sounds.

Maps of Reason is minimal yet layered, each wash of sound added with the utmost of care so as not to overload the senses, but instead placate them.  The album begins with “The beauty and the meaning”, on which long-drawn guitar lines are aglow with reverb.  Each note takes its time to unfold, never rushed, and an exercise in restraint is evident as new sounds are slowly added.  Synths are bled into the track to subtle effect, but stripped away towards the end as single guitar notes are plucked, the spaces between them stretching further and further apart until the emptiness becomes silence.

This is followed by the title track, and from the get-go there is an extra layer of texture, as the sound of footsteps crunching through snow or leaves is heard under the drones.  The guitar playing is from the school of Windy & Carl, where melancholic chords are allowed to delay into a state of dissolve before new ones are strummed.  This glacial pace is rewarding for the listener, like taking deep breaths into a relaxing calm.  More field recordings merge with slightly more aggressive guitar playing as the track comes to an end, and this shakes things up a bit, just before we get too comfortable.

“The loss of empathy” continues along this vein, a little darker at times but never claustrophobic.  It creates a sense of stasis, music that goes nowhere too far, but just exists as is, and allows the listener to float on its buoyancy for the duration.

Final track “Diving for pearls” is well named, as it plunges deep into still waters.  Those single guitar notes make a return, casting brighter light on the surface.  Those waters become a little choppier as the track evolves, as motion stirs in the drones, but we’re never lost at sea.  As the album ends, it feels like we’ve been in a warm cocoon of sound, and this consistent, unified sound is the strength of this album.

“Maps of reason” in Ver Sacrum

Non conoscevo Tropic Of Coldness, un duo formato da David Gutmann – chitarrista americano attivo a Bruxelles con il suo progetto electro-experimental Drawing Virtual Gardens – e da Giovanni La Placa, membro dei Fuji Apple Worship. E proprio a Bruxelles, nel 2011, i 2 hanno deciso di unire la forze formando Tropic Of Coldness. Hanno alle spalle diversi concerti tenuti in città come Bruxelles, Londra, Parigi, Berlino e Vienna e hanno pubblicato 4 dischi per etichette di nicchia come Organic Industries, Shimmering Moods e Glacial Movements. Ora la Krysalisound rende disponibile il nuovo lavoro del duo intitolato Maps Of Reason. Dico subito che ci troviamo di fronte ad un disco che farà la gioia di quanti amano l’ambient classica di Brian Eno e Harold Budd. Questa non è vuota new age per supermercati ma musica profonda che vi condurrà in uno stato di quiete immergendovi in un’atmosfera siderale. E’ musica di gran classe e molto raffinata piena di buone vibrazioni e di pulsazioni cosmiche. Lo spazio circostante viene riempito dalle noti tenui ed eteree prodotte da David e Giovanni creando un effetto ipnotico e facendo risvegliare antiche memorie sepolte nel nostro inconscio. Durante l’ascolto la memoria è andata anche ad un altro grande artista proveniente proprio dal Belgio ovvero Dirk Serries aka Vidna Obmana. Mi riferisco, in particolare, alla sua prima produzione rappresnetata da dischi come la trilogia Passage In BeautyShadowing In Sorrow ed Ending Mirage. In ogni caso la Krysalisound si conferma, in questo momento, una delle etichette migliori del genere. Maps Of Reason. Disponibile in vinile e anche nella versione digitale. Al momento su Bandcamp è possibile ascoltare una traccia al seguente link: https://krysalisound.bandcamp.com/album/maps-of-reason.
