The Veil by Sobria Ebrietas
compilation - recorded at 432 Hz
'The first tracks of "The Veil", might mislead you in putting this release in the "standard electronica" box. By track 3, those ethereal, opera-like voices are making you reconsider it. By the time you reach track 6's ambient/folk lullaby you are wondering whether there's anything Sobria Ebrietas cannot do. Ambient and downtempo tunes culminate in the sublime track 8's emotive trip-hop trip, promptly followed by another sublime, moving tune involving a kid's sweet singing... By then I was on the verge of tears (literally; yes, how silly is that!). That's where "The Veil" takes you: in unexpected emotional places. A rare feat for any band or composer... which tells you how precious this album is! What follows is of equal quality, mixing moods and instruments so easily it's uncanny. This album is not played on radios and does not involve "hot pieces" that might sell expensive tickets for live concerts. As a consequence many persons will not listen to "The Veil". They don't know what they're missing' (CodesAndNotes / freemusicarchive.org) 'This is a brilliant album, an intriguing sonic soundscape, with smatterings of vocals and experimental music. It's one that warrants spending time listening to, but you will be rewarded. Elements of jazz, eastern and trip hop and others all combine. xx' (@artist4483 / jamendo.com)
