More wonderfully nebulous psychedelic-folk music from Mehdi Ameziane and Solange Gularte. Ethereal drones and more traditional folk segments weave in and out of each other like an abstract medieval tapestry. They are a pair who certainly aren’t in a hurry, each track drifting for around fifteen minutes of gently finger picked guitar melody and washes of electronic fuzz and raga-drone. Gularte’s vocals are used painfully sparingly, only appearing tangibly for the last minute or so of This Ice Fortress and Still Desert, giving some welcome human gravity to the end of each. Whilst there is more focus to the record than last years Centuri Agent, the music remains an entirely elemental force.
