a really inspiring narrative for me, thank you. It's mysterious, distant and deep but also relatable, human and compassionate. The window opens at the end to great effect.
Favorite track: 09.2.
Sound-driven society is back with two new releases from FÄHUND, celebrating the spring and summer. Both parts contain a more soft and light sound, were darkness has been put aside and the sun has arrived to shine with rays off light.
This release is a farewell to the long cold winter, and a celebration for a lighter tomorrow. With longer days and warmer times. It starts with a mellow drone that rings out the darkness, and prepares for the light to arrive. As the darkness turns to light, calm chimes leads through the fields of sounds. Finally, at the end the voice of summer gets clearer and lands in a wave of soft light that fades away.
"At first flash of Eden. We race down to the sea. Standing there on freedom's shore. Can you feel it. Now that Spring has come. That it's time to live in the scattered sun. Waiting for you to come along. Waiting for you to hear my song. Waiting for you to come along. Waiting for you to tell me what went wrong. This is the strangest life I've ever known. Can you feel it. Now that Spring has come. That it's time to live in the scattered sun."
— Morrison, 1968

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.
