A night of serious drinking....

I feel uber-blessed to have taken in an amazing night of ambient/experimental/drone music in Kensington Market last night, featuring the sonic wizardry of William Davison, Joda Clement, the mighty Graham Stewart and headliners Christoph Heeman and Timo Van Luijk's In Camera.

Absolutely FANTASTIC sets by all the musicians involved in the evening!

Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape

To be honest, I'm still kind of sitting here with my jaw drooping after hearing this album. It really did a number on my expectations regarding what I might hear when I listen to something that calls itself 'black-metal'. For one thing, it starts off sounding a lot like what you might hear on classic heavy metal albums from a certain period in the 1980s. The guitar work especially brought to mind bands like King Diamond and a little bit of Iron Maiden (and yes, that was both a surprise, and a welcome one at that). And then, it just goes...well, I really do highly recommend that you just check it out for yourself because, no matter what you may or may not expect to hear and what label you may or may not put on this record, it really is quite fabulous!

Cosmonauts Day “Paths of the Restless” – 2011

Check em out!
"Suppose what your faith has said is essentially correct. Suppose that there is a universal mind controling everything, a god willing the behaviour of every sub-atomic particle. Now every partical has an anti-partical, its mirror image, its negative side. Maybe this universal mind resides in the mirror image, instead of being in our universe as we wanted to believe. Maybe he's anti-god, bringing darkness instead of light."
