Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Amber Asylum – Still Point
I was pleasant surprised by Still point, in the past I ‘ve found Amber Asylum mix of ambience, neo classical and metal interesting on paper but it never really seemed to gel properly for me. This just feels more enthral, darkly grand and inviting than their often awkward sound in the past.

Gregorio Bardini – Sentinelle Del Mattino
Sentinelle Del Mattino is a rewarding and unique mix of flute playing, electronica/ industrial, neo-classical, cinematic and jazz. With spoken word and sampled elements, It’s for every darting into surprising genre mixes making it difficult to tie down to one place.
