►►► WORDS ABOUT

*** Short interesting work by Nobodi Soundz. He continues his work on this ambient style composed by a complex mix of elements, electronic and acoustic (digital samples, electric and acoustic guitars, acoustic piano, noises and so on). This formula is very stimulating cause it's beyond usual approach of hundreds of ambient releases, where you find just long drones, or long pads mixed with samples. That way to do ambient has become boring and obsolete in my very modest opinion. In Nobodi Soundz case, including this mini release, it's alway possible to find, beyond the specific style, some musical surprise for you ears. That's why I put again in evidence his work. Comparing with previous work in collaboration with Metek, maybe this release is a little bit below in terms of variety, but it's normal considering that Metek contributed to insert into last album some heterogeneous elements to Nobodi music. I hope you'll enjoy the tracks. ***

*** nobodisoundz, from France, presents us with “Isolation.” That title may make you think of sadness, being singled out, or perhaps loneliness. After listening to this EP (released in July 2014), I’m going to add creepy and paranoid to my list. This is some good stuff, and the experience is especially enhanced if you pull out the headphones for a close listen. Just don’t listen alone in the dark.

The title of the first track, “apparition from woods,” provides the first clue as to what you are in for. These five songs are full of lots of sounds, including weird electronic noises, mysterious and indecipherable voices, and mostly subtle guitar distortion. You can try to pick out individual elements (a guitar picked below the bridge here, sounds from a television there), but it’s the overall mix that makes this so intriguing. Each track is packed with muddled and murky sounds. It’s a dense soundtrack to an unmade horror film.

I particularly liked the last two tracks. Despite its name, “wind movements” actually sounds like some sort of troubled hospital setting, with whispered sinister vocals and off-kilter medical machinery. Final track “abstract bird tension” is full of chirping birds and distorted guitar (the most aggressive guitar on any of the tracks). I’m not sure what’s going on…but I’m worried about those poor birds.

Etched Traumas is a label out of Athens, Greece. They list numerous types of music they focus on including noise, electro , and experimental . But even better they say: “Our model is sound so let’s go down and burn the road. Leave your etched traumas behind. ***
