Cyclic Law Releases

From Cyclic Law:

AUN “Black Pyramid” (29th Cycle)

Continuing on the foundations laid with the acclaimed 2009 album Motorsleep, AUN are further blurring the line where earth and space intersect with the ominous floating monolith “Black Pyramid”. Casting a new shadow, the seven tracks that make up Black Pyramid are loosely inspired by the worlds created by visionary french artist Enki Bilal. While still dealing in dark matter, the twisted guitar and electronics mutations find the duo at their most melodic, luminous and accessible yet, but in the world of AUN there is always a very fine line between light and darkness. AUN’s singular psychedelic ambient drones laid on Black Pyramid definitely marks this release as some of their best work yet, and this says a lot about the power of this new album given their prolific and highly praised discography.

SUB LUNA “Awake!” CD (1st Eclipse)

Sub Luna is a Swedish duo formed by Mikael Lindblom (also a live collaborator for Karjalan Sissit) and Fredrik Sooberg. After four years of silence they return with their new album Awake! Their sound has definitely been refined and expands the framework established with their previous album, the double CD “”In The Shade of time”. On this second album Sub Luna are merging the more traditional elements of the dark folk genre with influences from the world of pop and rock and thus avoid falling into trappings of the genre. Awake! Also symbolically marks the ending of one era and the beginning of another. These are songs of love and hate, nostalgia and progression, magic and loss… songs of protest from the age of nihilism. With a guest vocal appearance by Ann-Mari Thim (Arcana) and Mastering done by Peter Bjargo. Mesmerizing quality Folk Noir.

The JACK Quartet Makes Good

From NYTimes.com:

ON a sweltering August night in New York the young members of the JACK Quartet found themselves playing a gig at the Stone on the Lower East Side, a no-frills performance space: just a small room with black concrete walls, no stage, no bar, and folding chairs for roughly 50 people. A rattling air-conditioner did not provide much relief, and during the 60-minute set, which included Webern’s Six Bagatelles and Philip Glass’s String Quartet No. 5, the noisy thing had to be turned off.
