55 Cancri E / Att lämna Tellus / Music For Dreams

Test Pressing, Dr Rob, Review, 55 Cancri E, Att lämna Tellus, Music For Dreams, Kenneth Bager, Copenhagen

Folk counterpoint, icy and glacial. Human warmth reduced to a thin whistle amongst machine code morse. Careful Blues picking. A forest of cries. “Ett uppvaknande” is a Brenda Ray beach – sunlight and synthetic gulls – but for the main part 55 Cancri E`s “Att lämna Tellus” creates a world, otherly, as if recounting a dark fairytale. Joe Meek transmissions, melodica, and church organ tones lending the story a dream-like unease, while its lyrics look for some kind of closure.

“Forget”, “Not regret”.
