The second offering by Purple Mountain Peal is an obscure unidentified object rolling adrift in an entropic void in search of the zero degree of music. There’s virtually no melody in these tracks and no rhythm, either, for no rhythmelodical coordinates are to be found in the regions the duo explore this time.
Alternately choking in desperation or floating in blissful oblivion, it is very difficult to remember that all these dark sounds are originated by such homely, apparently harmless instruments as acoustic piano, acoustic and electric guitars. A warning, if you like, that even the most ordinary objects or ideas may reveal dark sides one has never thought of.
1981 is an argentinian artist from Concepción del Uruguay, Province from Entre Rios, with an early approach to the musical arts as bass player and experimenting with guitars, keys and percussions. Composing pieces and using an old recorder. In 2004 he started to explore electronic based production. Neodimia derives of this period. An instrumental album with lost words. With the names of the themes we can deduce some concepts: isolation, melancholy, ansiety, plenitude, calm, passion. The metaphoric image of a planet with a eternal autumn, where the mind gives wandering steps, making stops in some short emotions and in the far away memories that talk about reality, this is, maybe, the imaginary sugestion for neodimia.
“Weldroid is back in the Kahvi fold, and with this 9 track album, he’s back up in the top of the Kahvi releases. A few guest artists make an appearance such as Planet Boelex and Mitoma, and with the ambient and electronic nuances that appear throughout this release, there is something for every Kahvi fan.
Fantastic analogue basslines (Diclofenac and Desloratadine) and ambience (Leaving quietly remix) show Weldroid in a different light – from his usual industrial percussion to a more delicate subtle feel.
Check out Flying Fist and Leaving Quietly for some quality production.” (4T/Kahvi Collective)

“The Place It Used To Be” is the first release of Cousin Silas under Sucu Music. In his own words: “[The tracks] are all aural sketches of a place I used to go to as a kid.
It’s basically a small valley, a stream running through it and an old mill that had just closed down not long after we moved there. Very peaceful place”.
