So I’m not known for reviewing instrumentals, so if I’m taking time to do a full post on Eliot Wilder’s new EP, “Quartet,” then I must really like it.
I can’t find anything out about the dude, but he makes some very interesting music.
Satanic music! Looking for some hardcore? Some violent, aggressive music to roast pigs by? Well, this is NOT for you.
“The Litanies of Satan” is the back half of a double-EP collection by We Are the Wooden House, on Treehouse Orchestra Recordings. It’s basically a series of poetry readings with ambient (mostly percussion) music. It’s okay, but not great. Frankly, it’s a little hard to hear the words on some of the cuts.
“Maya Devi,” though, the first half of this EP, is a collection of six beautiful instrumentals. Really good stuff.
It’s not the usual kind of thing I post here, so check it out for something new, quiet, and gentle…
