Glissando, I've been informed, are from Leeds. I can't get in their 'Loves Are Like Empires' CD because it's got a wax seal on it's envelope & is embellished with thread & beads. Seeing as though I may be destroying the future of rock by opening this delightful package, I'll hunt elsewhere for sound samples. And all i've got to go on is 2 tracks, 1 as-yet-unreleased beauty called 'Flood' for instance, is bewitching stuff indeed. Taking it's cue from early, ethereal
4AD and apocalyptic Canadian anarcho-classico types Godspeed, this is torch music for the post Bjork generation. I can imagine fans of Cranes loving this. Also Epic 45, with thier use of subtle chamber-enveloping guitar effects, Eno-esque piano/field recordings & a haunting female vocal that is both yearning & forboding. 'What the Exultant...' is actually on this CD & is more lo-fi & electronic but nevertheless alarmingly fine. It's her voice, hovering over a bed of whirring glitch & space bleeps, with a warm minimal piano backing. This duo are quite simply one of the most engaging things I've heard for a few months! For fans of This Mortal Coil & Matmos??? On Loom Music.
