Helena Espvall & Marcia Bassett "lapidary"

Helena Espvall & Marcia Bassett
Heavy Blossom

This tape sounds like lullabies for glaciers. Super delicate and dense, consisting of Helena Espvall (Ghost, Espers) playing cello and Marcia Bassett (Zaimph, Zaika...) playing guitar. The music sounds so far away and private you feel like you may have wandered into the halls of an old church, searching for the source of this haunting music but never finding them. Long sweeping drones carry the guitar's accents a long way. I recommend this quite a bit. I only wish the audio was a bit more clear. I want to be able to sit on the floor of the Chapel and drift away with the music.

  1. alt-vinyl just put this out on high-quality LP -- the audio is much improved...
