I can't stop listening to this. Absolutely my favorite release of the NY and one of my favorite BC purchases and memories. The soundscape is cohesive and personally relevant and I love it when an artist isn't afraid to say that their work has value. Looking forward to the next release.
Favorite track: 07.1.
Deep sonic rushes of calm melancholy for contemplation. Once I purchased this album I had to acquire other works and look forward to new releases by Fahund. Take the time to explore these soundscapes carefully. :>
Sound-driven society is back with a new series of releases from Fähund. This time with a more humble and mellow touch. This series of two releases illustrates the advent of autumn.
Part one consist of two songs, where the first one is a laid back and deep dark monotone drone with a hint of light. The first song slowly takes you to the second, and turns things around slightly and bring back even more light to the darkness. It contains few surprises, but it floats you forward through hazy landscapes and clouded rays of light.
"I hail the fall to come, and change the tide from now to then. I wish for early nights to stay, and longer days that bounds to pay. Make the leaves fall from age, and let the summer go to sleep. Life we know must slow decay, and make the land fall back to haze. The past shall leave me far away, and turn my thoughts back into shades. Finally, I’ll walk with ease and make the journey into peace.”

If you are a usual player of The Long Dark or The Hunter Call of the Wild in the Medved Taiga reserve, you will probably understand why I like these five winter themed albums so much.
If you also have a special place in your heart for The Wendigo by Algernon Blackwood... same thing.
Very ominous themes which translate very well the dangerous isolation and cold of winter. Forto Reibus.
