The Shore That Fears The Sea - United Bible Studies [2006]

Ireland's United Bible Studies' first release proper on Deserted Village imprint (cf. The Magickal Folk of the Faraway Tree), and sails set for all points organic, pagan n mystick. Strong composed pieces given freedom to breath n expand from improvisatory touches around the edges. Eerie sounds ebb n seethe; bells call up dead sailors; bowed drones; unobtrusive electronic oscillations; church organ, tapes, n vocal samples. Masterful.

Have not been through in awhile. Christmas comes early! Thank you for this my 1st gift opened. Brilliant stuff. Mesmerizing. I'm reminded of the Dutch saying; "de wal keert het schip" (the shore will change the ship's course).
