After listening “Nothing is real” released in May 2014 i seen a comment on bandcamp that mentioned an album from 2008.
As i prefered the second part of the album mentioned above for tracks as “Rose hierarchy” (full of glitches) more experimental than most of the songs contained in the first part of the album i opened curious the page of “Soundtrack to a vacant life” or “Winter map.
The main difference for my opinion is how vanished the postrock color that fill 2008 works from time to time.
The electronic sounds are properly behind in 2008 and in front in 2014.
Something sweet appears in “Nothing is real” and something darker in “Soundtrack to a vacant life”.
Guitars are heavier and the composer seems more free 6 years ago.
The albums are both great, don’t get me wrong on this.
Songs are short but so intense that they seems longer than they are.
Listening to it on bandcamp is a bit a mistake because tracks are done to fade one into the other.
Purchase it and listen to it all as it is a kind of ‘concepts albums”.
Preludes, interludes are here to give a sens and a way to drive you thru musical journey.
It could be two different seasons but summer provide loud storm and winter can offer delightfull fresh lighty morning.
It’s is a naturally delicate and never black or white neither.
As some electronic feed the background of the LPs the are both influenced by jazz and classical roots.
Contrast all along the pieces surprised me as piano arpeggio tracks can walk you to a heavy guitar postrock song surrounded by romantic strings melody pieces or a percussion beat that kicks you a bit to come back in some strange new soundscape and even ethnic voices from time to time.
Never boring because even there is a song you are not very fan about there is soon something else.
Both albums are pretty long with numereous pieces in each of them.
Pieces are rarely longer than 3 minutes and it makes it a great intertainment for the audience.
So here we are with two good stuff from the same artist in twin lifes travelling time.
The birth of “The french touch connection” opened with “Jean du voyage” find out about this .. it’s as good as what is following.
After a year and the finest collection possible for a young and fresh label seems to be an artistic director success.
To celebrate this first step in a life of one of the numbereous labels existing in the musical world of 21th century a giant huge compilation of 36 songs provided by the elite was release .
The selection is just incredible of quality and names.
They all offered the track and it’s in free download … AMAZING…!
Doctor Flake, Medl4, Hugo kant, Mr Mood, Neemah, Goomar, so many great names anonymous or a beat more famous.
The theme is dark and by the way so sweet to listen.
To have a little flavor to taste a short movie made as a teaser gives a color of the album people was surelly waiting for after math.
I never got the chance to know about it in November 2013.
There is so many things to listen and days are so short.
I have no favorit styles and diging on the web as a butterfly jump from flower to flower is just my way to drink music from all over the world.
36 songs in 2 LPs…?
All of them better than the others…?
Yes it’s like this .. this compilation is just all i love and more.
The Label provides all references to discover works of the artists listenable in Mysterious lane, so, enjoy…
The soft voices and delicate whispers is a the great chilling sound that help you coming down from all the stress of modern life.
It’s so delicate that it seems even a natural echo of the inside needs of peace of mind.
Jerome Alexander play many intruments and it allçow him to fill songs with many smoothness as it seems to be his will.
There is a bit of folk, ambient that surround the poetry. The voice is almost shy and overall very precise.
The drops of darkness adds some mellow in the composition.
It’s a spring in a green fiels full of flowers.
it’s the pleasures of lonelyness in front of an endless panoramic view.
The electronic sounds around the strings and guitars are well chosen as it give waves of pleasure and relax the ears.
In one word if you like sweetness listen to it it’s perfect for you.
When ambient and spacebub are mixed up in a perfect way.
Very cool album to fill the void of an empty room with soft beat and slow sound or slow beat and soft sound.
Edited on Cold Tear Records after it’s been a bit forgoten it’s great idea to dive in again.
I’ll make it go to the next podcast it must fit to many mixtapes.

The progressive colors and the endless evolution of the songs are going straight to the listeners.
This is a kind of music that blend styles and keep the ears focused and never bored.
The videos are absolutly brillant and it deserve also your eyes.
From the first till the last track this LP released in december 2012 give to the listener a delightfull journey.
Soft colors of travel, spiritual call, sensual mood, mysterious pictures are the components of this amazing brend of styles.
As electronic sounds delicatly surround the acoustics recording the easy listening offer to the ears a very carefully beats .
The ethnic roots added to the simplicity show how skilled it is because it sound so simple.
Simplicity can be sometimes the sign of years of works and in this production it is what i feel…
A lot of work to give to the audience pleasure at is best.
it’s warm and it can fill a room without disturbing but it also bring soft and deep emotions.
There is feelings and sensitivity in the melodies …
Loci record selected this one.
I share it here… it deserve more than those few words .. it deserve you to listen to it carefuly.
The fresh air of the spring sounds like this album.
The blend of soft pop voices and electronic music is just perfectly balanced as a dusk of april and the colorfull light of an early morning shared by passionated lovers.
Some vintage sounds come to fill the harmony of the composition colored by extremelly talented skills that bring to the ears beats from all over the world culture.
none of the little details remain far from the abillity of feeling little glitchs that make this album so fashion and out of the time.
Miranda Rae is a guest in the third song called “Lossless” she open the whole fairy tale with this arrangement that is dynamically brought to the voice by finger snaped all along the song.
The wave that make the album so delightfull is also the contrast between songs.
If the color can recall memory of English soft rock of the 90’s as the lyrics ,the positive energy that cary the heart of the listeners is without a doubt something that come from the androgyne voice and the discret rising of the soul in each song.
If a physical reaction that this album give can wear some words they could be light, open, dance in a a free open field.
The mellow emotions are never sad but more as a cuddle.
There is some about the candid childhood, even maybe the sweet smile of a loving mother who brest feeding a beloved baby.
The audience chose this album as i chose it for my spring.
it’s well ranked and could be shared more and more anytime you need to make a gift to people you care about.
