Lykanthea: Migration

By: Brendan

Migration is the first in a projected 5-part series by Lykanthea. It’s a dreamily ambient collection of songs wherein ethereal vocals swim in the enticing sound of Lykanthea’s complex score. For me, the electronic beat of “Hand and Eye” seemed out of place in the otherwise mellow set. However, Migration is at times reminiscent of the Julee Cruise/Angelo Badalamenti Twin Peaks soundtrack and one of the most interesting collections I’ve heard this year.

Gorgeous version of the Tom Waits classic…


Introducing The Frozen North…

The Frozen North’s debut single, Origin/Electric Mistress, is a lovely, haunting, electro-classical instrumental work. A relatively new Warsaw band, The Frozen North features guitarist Neil Milton, a.k.a. the man behind Scottish/Polish indie label, Too Many Fireworks, and last year’s fantastic Variations on Chopin collection.
