After working with Sven Mann on two LIYR's albums, Alexandra Nordrac started a dark ambient project TREFLE NOIR. Her first album " Villanelle du Diable" leads us into a dark and poetic universe. Inspired by French poetry from the 19th century, the texts lead us through the maze of death, near borders of the afterlife, witchcraft and madness, and all this on a dark and scary music, mixing of soundscapes, drones and percussions.

Litevský rituální folk. Krásné digipackové vydání.
Sutartinės in their pure form! Unique Lithuanian polyphonic ritual songs are performed by the most known sutartinės singers (chanters) group Trys Keturiose. This is very old tradition from pagan past, kept alive in secret for ages, mostly among women. The songs (chants) on conceptual "Kas dar taka" collection are dominated by the Lithuanian verb teka which has several mythologically connected meanings: it means the rising of the sun, the flowing of a river, the flowing of time as well as the process of a woman marrying a man. The chants have a strict and careful connection to the authentic findings of folklore expeditions, and have been tonically perfected by singers' voices only, without other musical instruments or sounds. Strongly entrancing, magical sutartinės smoothly flow and weave a symbolic message from a femininely transparent, fragile and slow that time (in illo tempore) to the hurried and chaotic world. The CD comes in a...
Rituální elektro akustický šamanský ambient. Digipack. Polsko.
The first full-length album of Tundra is a continuation of the previously chosen path; soundwise, it is based on the sonic contemplation of space. Here it is mostly of spiritual nature. The starting point situated in the subarctic region is left behind, and is replaced with wanderings among symbols scattered in the infinity. This path leads to a point which seems to be familiar to us, but it is not its beginning of the journey.

31 August 1997 was one of the hottest nights in Paris that year. Just after midnight a black Mercedes Benz rushes through the dark streets with a horde of ravenous paparazzi on tow. In the Pont de l'Alma tunnel the car swerves into a roof-supporting pillar and in the echo of the metallic roar dies Diana, the Princess of Wales. The world has lost one of its greatest icons and the morbidity of popular culture hits a new high. The story is strangely resonant with the myth of the Greek goddess Artemis (Roman: Diana) and the hunter Actaeon, who, after having seen the goddess bathing naked, is turned into a stag and torn to pieces by his own hunting hounds. This picture opens Ulver's 13th album, The Assassination of Julius Caesar.
Such historical quantum leaps often occur in Ulver's musical universe, which has never been bound by any physical law. And the band's unruly play with myth, history and popular culture has never been more...
