Cousin Silas and Kevin Lyons do it again. With "The Fortean Project (waag_rel122)" they have created another album of dark and atmospheric soundscapes, an album that will soundtrack your wildest Cyclopean nightmares and provide aural accompaniment for your weirdest of unexplainable experiences.
The sounds presented here are deliciously dark and seriously spooky, they have a vibrancy that fans of dark ambient will totally get. I, for one, love them and have spoken before about my fondness for reading HP Lovecraft whilst listening to music of this ilk.
And it is reading that has inspired both Silas and Lyons, reading of the Fortean Times, a British monthly magazine devoted to what is called "anomalous phenomena" on their Wikipedia page. Whilst I am not a reader myself, I can testify to Cousin Silas' love of the publication: he's always talking about it and, when I visit him, he always has a couple of copies lying about. He gets his inspiration from this monthly and I get inspired by him ... and I hope you do too?
As before, my thanks goes to the wonderful waag community ... for their generous support.
A 320kbps version of this release will be available, for free, over on Archive with a lossless version available here on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.
