Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Toy bizarre & Pierre Redon – Saisons
Saisons mixers together nature bound field recordings, improv guitar elements, electronics and clever sound editing to conjuring up strange, alien and organic sonic worlds, which for the most part remain quirky, atmospheric, none threatening but often psychedelic.

Blood Ceremony – Self Titled
Canadian based Blood ceremony make wonderful flare shaking and devil worshiping 70’s occutic rock with odd touches of folk/ rock-ism and prog. This is the bands debut album and it’s a very satisfying dark, atmospheric and enjoyable brew.
