This, believe it or not, is my first serious listen to Olan Mill whom we have formerly had two previous best-selling releases in by. While I'm not getting distracted by my utter dismay at somebody beating me to a stupidly rare and obscure CDr by Slug Pocket on Discogs this morning, I've managed to listen to the opening four tracks countless times now and this is refined, exquisite and seriously impressive gear from a duo I can hardly glean any information on whatsoever except Alex Smalley has had bits out under other names through Students of Decay and Highpoint Lowlife, both quietly excellent labels.
Following an industrial-like opener that collapses into shaggy carpet of hollowed-out white noise, a doorway then opens into a woodland walkway at dusk where eerie choral singing sprites weave their way wispily through the evening shaded trees. By 'Pampas' we have travelled all night in the company of our amorphous spirit friends only to arrive in a glorious Mediterranean town at dawn, already baking in the sun - we are now looking over a sleepy limpet-like mass of rustic chalk-white buildings and olive groves sticking to a hillside proudly situated next to a majestic rippling blue sea. And that is where we will largely stay, drinking in such tranquil serenity with this sublime soundtrack lapping away at our ears.I dunno, where the music takes me is pure fantasy really. I'm well impressed at their skillful merging of both the stirring feel of an elegant string orchestra and the shimmering celestial drone-scapes of prime Celer. Seriously, if this CD doesn't move or touch you with its cinematic seduction then nothing this week will.
