- The Wintering Land by Savaran

This label are churning them out right now yet are retaining high quality control and it is quickly becoming thee boutique label for ones ambient fix. These five recordings by Mark Walters were recorded during the exceptionally harsh UK winter of 2010-2011 and are soundscapes inspired by the effects of the weather on the countryside landscape. I'm fairly sure one of the sounds on opener "Autumnal' is a recording of footsteps squashing through snow. To be honest this past winter for me was a bummer in many ways, my commute proved a nightmare for some time. However one day I was stranded for two and a half hours with zero public transport yet armed with my ipod filled with stuff on the Infraction label, I got through it and was a peaceful solitary time. What that did though, was make me appreciate ambient music more in terms of really tuning into the sounds outdoors and appreciating the weather while listening. These sublime sounds take me back to that day making me reflect on just how gorgeous the world looks under a blanket of snow. Now as far as I am aware this is the first release from Savaran and the sonics show a most promising artist at work. This is stuff you can just totally lose yourself in, always with several layers of gently evolving tones and lush textures. 'Meltwaters' is superb and really quite dramatic. Again this label has it's ears directed straight at emerging and fresh talent from the underground.
