Sweet Ermengarde - Ex Oblivione

Sweet Ermengarde - Ex Oblivione
(2016) Equinoxe

Oh, how I wish for more records like this! The legacy of The Fields Of The Nephilim is always present, but Sweet Ermengarde has a distinct sound of their own. I don't ever feel like listening to a simple clone. The CD haven't arrived yet, so I'm listening to the Bandcamp download. My only complaint is that the album may be a little to long. 13 songs is a bit much to swallow for an EP lover as myself!

Metroland - Things Will Never Sound The Same Again

Metroland - Things Will Never Sound The Same Again
(2016) Alfa Matrix

This album is supposed to be a thank you to the bands sound engineer and very close friend Louis Zachert (Passenger L), who recently passed away. As a personal tribute, Passengers A and S created a complete new album from scratch, where every song, every note and the featured cd art is their way of saying thank you and goodbye to their close friend and fellow passenger.
As a side note, this is also my favourite Metroland CD so far.

Faderhead - FH-X

Faderhead - FH-X (2016)
Not A Robot

Yeah, I know. How low can my music taste sink, right? I've actually liked Faderhead since his first record was released, back in 2006.
This new piece of music is by far his best yet. It's possible that I like the new Kickstarter EP, "The Universe Has Spoken" (not yet on Discogs), even more. I can't really tell were the album ends and the EP starts, when putting them both on the same playlist...

Ari Mason - Neuropathy

Ari Mason - Neuropathy
(2014) Danse Macabre

I bought this album immediately after hearing the "Dim The Lights" and "Brother" singles. Buy them now! This album is a bit older, and maybe not as good. But I don't think it's fair to compare albums with singles. However, I really like her moody, synthpop-y sound - not far from a female Mr.Kitty. I want more!
