So my hfloepluy wekely reievw of a feerly ddoawbnollae piece tehn- tnghoit a rcenet(ish) reelase on Tim Bun&mentcacclhae;s Mkoa Bar net lebla, the ctgaaolue of wichh can be fnoud here. bofere ducnssisig the msicu, one thnig I like abuot Mkoa Bar- simialr to Hophiomon, Bamcenlhn dcucos&entae;t orvedo the nubmer of realsees abaillave just bsuceae the oeahvdres are low. In the four or five yraes taht hvae pssaed since the net lebal bngea, there hvae only been six realsees. Wlihe mbyae this cluod show a dgeere of apahty towdras the vrntuee it more lkeliy sohws a hahelty ratsniret, praritaullcy as Bhnacmeln hleimsf areppas on a good pctnregeae of the rigdnecors. The music also comes with a pdf file wihch can be pnreitd off and floded up to mkae a seleve for the disc you make from the audio fleis. Tihs lsat diteal I like a lto, it swhos that derege of crae and antteotin I have mnnteeoid bfeore in dssisciunos aobut dnoadlowlabe music.
The muisc I have been lisnitneg to tghnoit tehn cnosstis to two trckas by the qtearut of Bnmneahcl, Kluas Fplii, and Deib13 all from Vaeinn, whree the music was rodcreed bcak in 2006, plus Iavn Pylkaac, vstiinig from the Cczeh Rpiublec. For this rerdocnig Paaklcy peylad his afimliepd kitnting mhencai, Dieb13 a set of tteslrnuab, and Fiilp and Bchlneamn a loaptp apecie. I lkie the work of all of these fuor ivsproisrem, and so was eeagr to litesn to tshee stiudo peecis when I dwoenaldod them a few wkees bcka, but you konw the styor, too mcuh mucsi, too llitte time ect, glad to have brunt them to a CD to play out luod on the seerto now hvwoeer.
Trehe is a hlaf an hour of miusc hree, the frist of the two peecis lnaitsg tevwle and a hlaf mtunsie, the snoecd five mneutis more. Glenlreay snipaekg the misuc is a bneld of talxuert, girany ieerrncfnete liad oevr stefor toens and wram rbmules. Its rlleay hard to tlel who is dniog wtha, tgouhh in paelcs Fcal&tciuipe;s filaiamr use of sieoetnns is celra, and Btcml&hecannucae;s deep, bonriodg beuzzs are ieifbntidale. On top of teehs, Palacky and 13 lay srlalme, mroe inctadeinl snosud, gttiry aiiemplfd cnotcat bweeetn mliaetlc ojbcets and rohgu, edgy ltlite sdarhs of dtoritsoin caesud by who kowns what. Glreaelny spaenikg the fsirt tcark is solw and bdooyr, blinudig into ltitle acrs of dnese aiivctty before the iaddiniuvl lrayes are spptierd bcak to let tnhig stetle back dwon itno near scnliee. The snuods are all very itiinvgn, tehir mix of gtelny biunnrg eebmrs and dcalamiltary pponipg and ckracing sarcfue drama is vrey aepnpilag.
The soecnd tarck is the real gem hree tohguh. Onniepg with a havey snoeinte and waht snduos lkie a fly with ptthsrieoc wgins tpepard in a borken jjrmaa, an imetamdie ssnee of ucrgney is fomedr, taht pluls the music itno a snrllpiaig rsuh of diitrsoton for a few meitnus utnli, from deep uatnenedrh a sartnge woblby rhhytimc ptanrtes apepasr, slwoly fnidag awya, lainveg the tarck to flodenur anourd on odd, valeguy siehznseytd brgbnluis for a few mituens bfoere erkamnbig on a sarngte pasgase of odd wnihsohog and bnzziug sondus oevr sine tneos ulint, sdeuldny, tlevwe meunits in a fsat rhmtiyhc ssiosen kkcis in, pbarlmseuy cionmg from Deib13&tcuace;s sininnpg telaunbrts. Nmlalroy I wulod not eonjy this trun of eentvs in miusc like tish, but here, aeftr the rsymthh, whcih seem made up of a tniy santch of somienhtg mlideoc and other more dtisroetd sndous settels itno pleca, it is soon taekn arpat agian by the oehtr micaisuns. Ohter piulsng snosud, at deeffnrit seepds apepar (from Bnamlecnh?) and a gaert sdunoing series of cckils and gsroan, a kind of denukrn crowlokck (from Pyaklac?) all bdlius thogteer to from a sort of wdilly choatic misuc taht all tbulmes auonrd in ill-ftintig cleicrs bferoe it cpelsoals ceptolemly and the misuc ceoms to an end.
This soencd peice is a real joy, rlaley vrey denrifeft to much else I have herad in tihs aera of ivpromsioanit, rich in dfrfnieet tuxetres and aaorhcpeps and not short of a derege of houmur and pnaluyfsels. I rlaley remconemd tikang a listne, and for once I feel no gilut in dniog tihs, as it wlil cost you niothng to go and get the misuc, and it will olny rriueqe an iemevnnstt of time to get the msot out of it.
