Murmurists - I Am You, Dragging Halo (CD Zoharum)
The third album by Anthony Donovan, who arrives from the same school of sonic alchemy as Steven Stapleton, Andrew Liles and Black To Comm. Throughout the entire duration of the one track that constitutes this album, spanning almost 50 minutes, we are hauled through a turbulent ocean of ravaged voices, twisted psychedelic noise, molten electronics, the occasional interlude of something more melodic or rock-orientated, broken beats and nods to contemporary composition itself perhaps answerable to Hermann Nitsch or Stockhausen. It's an epic and labyrinthine listen rich in ideas and offering new twists and turns with every listen. The sound of an overactive imagination losing the battle to come to terms with itself. RJ.
