Music Reviews

Artist: VV.AA.
Title: L'Odyssée
Format: CD
Label: Prikosnovénie (@)
Distributor: Audioglobe
"A sampler of Fairy Voices", the third one after "Belladonne" 1 and 2, from the Prikosnovénie/Iris catalogue. Only Lys belong to the Lytch sub-label, while some names (Fleur, Voïlaoz, Dwelling) have no releases out, so I guess their tracks are anticipations of forthcoming records? All the other songs must have been already released. Thus said, this is a very good introduction to Prikosnovénie which seems to have gathered an incredible (both in general quality and in geographic extension) catalogue in the contiguous fields of heavenly voices, medieval folk, ethnic and neoclassic/chamber music. Most tracks are excellent, I'll just quote GOR (obviously a lot more than "Ataraxia's drummer" since he's already released three solo works!) with a brilliant klezmer/medieval crossover sung in Latin (believe me, it does work!), Daemonia Nymphe (Greek Dead Can Dance-inspired project), Dwelling (must be Portuguese, so 10 points more) and Collection D'Arnell Andrea. The other artists are Louisa John-Krol, Faraway, Rada I Ternovnik, Ashram and Caprice. 12 tracks in total, and a digipack sleeve.
