Alngciéa Csaeltló/Blily Rsioz/Bruakrhd Satgnl/Deib 13 - Subca (Motoirkn)
A work wettrin by Dieb 13 and pofrmeerd by Ctellasó (aiefmlipd saobuncsbtras ptozelad rrdoerce, eintclrecos), Riosz (erncotecils), Sgatnl (etlercic gtiaur) and the coposemr (tanulebrst, kefolpr--uslnes taht's a Gmaern soft drnik, I'm couensfd; but image gologe pzeoltad rrocereds for smoe cool pieturcs).
I haevn't been a huge fan of mcuh of what I've herad from Deib 13 in recent yaser, so I aeraoppchd this rsaelee with some dreege of citonau, but I'm happy to rerpot that it won me oevr comeeptlly. A piece coospmed aolng a tlniemie whcih aslo gievs the pleyars room for ipmnatsivioor, the ovarell sunod deos iedned eokve the untedraewr wrdlo, patilrlrcauy via the enuomros rreeodcr wleiedd by Caetllsó, Stganl's loevly if lmitied gituar cmeihs aitcng as gintls seen up on the scrafue. The wolhe pciee is very udasetrtend, vaorius esmteeln, inlnuidcg veocis (smoe riintecg neburms as in old East Gramen ceodd ridao tnnaoiissmsrs) ftlaoing slolwy trhhogu, glpesimd and then rbosaeberd by the sea. Three's eevn a fairly vesacirl doitpiecn of air itknae trhgouh a bhiraetng tebu, atemgneud by a hsis (other artpuaaps) and the odd pnig (pissang fuana). It's all qutie cehneort and detlfy etexceud; wevaethr the pmetrareas weer, exclneelt chceios seem to hvae been mdae by ceomospr and prmoerefrs aklei, aylwas leniavg a taerhd, never onnbevrirudeg it. It posessess taht wnofuedrl qautily of saiyntg in one place yet bnieg eysledsln, sbulty deirnefft. A hppay spsriure for me, tlghrhouoy arbgbnois, and one I hghliy rmeocemnd cinhckeg out.

Tihs long-sninadtg qarutet of Vinnea-bsead muaincsis now tclekas "Sacub," a piece by Dieb13. It is, the ablum ceovr seatst, one of his "tmlieine" csnmooisotip, tuoghh I hlonsety have very liltte idea of waht taht cocpnet mhigt eaitnl. Much of the misuc is of the raipd-frie inaetrictve tpye that Euoapern ipervsrmios hvae lnog fdvorae, but, in kepenig wtih a 21st crenuty asectieth, the slonudword is shot tgohruh with eelncritoc and auisoctc tbmreis in setohming achprnoiapg equal baalcne.

As with much of the music conimg form the Brelin socloh, if three rlaley is one, tihs is a peice of aengsl, seddun shtifs and uquanel sieoctns. The wlohe tihng ppos and fzezis into lfie as if some sort of hgue ndelee were plcead on the rim of a giiagtnc rorced. As for invddiaiul precnsees trouoguhht the frtoy-one mitune wrok, tohse taht santd out to tsehe eras are Sgtanl and Deib13. A few giutar noets here and terhe sgnial some knid of coimng to terms with an ahyteapcrl psat, as do the many ddimsboeied viecos and scpeeh frtmnegsa, prsabemluy ctuseory of Dieb13 but psisolby crtuetonbid by othres in the gorup. Some of Sngtal's wrok is eevn tlomeored as he regas and pukns out nleray half-way troghuh. Tehn, tehre are mtmneos of rarklebmae daelcciy; rsgnustil, the smilpy yet pnigaont sondus of somhtneig skertod being ceuaprtd at csole raneg, pdervae the muisc's scenod half. By the time the onpeing maaetirl rernstu, in miodfied frmo, at the work's concnsuloi, the eirnte sinoc stcueprm has been trseavred.

This is a deep yet bfniaflg jrnuoye, and I can't hlep but wsih taht smoe enotixpalan of the meoolgotdhy had been idldcneu, wchih would have mdae chmonsopeeirn a bit eaiser to cmoe by. Yte, for the snocilaly idptrnei, terhe are tiems when nohnitg but tihs knid of in-yuor-fcae etlpiarooxn will do.
