Auzel ¦|¦ Old

     A collection of intriguing sound vignettes by new Vuzh Music artist Auzel. (Who is Auzel??)

     One might be tempted to call this innocent & curious experimental music 'freak-folk', but these nocturnal psychedelic sounds were not made to fit in a genre. By the time you think you can define it, there is a change. You can listen.

     Mixing and production by C. Reider on all except 4, 9 & 12. One of the voices on 8 by CR. Guitar on 13 by CR. Songs 3, 8, 11, 13 co-written by CR. Everything else Auzel, (including the cover art)

Review by AUTOreverse:
     14 shortish pieces. Micro, minimalistic. Lots of samples, surrounded by rustic, homemade vocal drones. "I Remember It More Now" is a couple of rhythmic, glitchy loops beset by noise-abuse. "The Maid And The Cook" is kooky and frenetic, using some seriously high frequencies amid piano and xylophone-type sounds. Like a lost piece by Skinner Box. "Incorrect Spell" continues similarly, maybe like one of the early Rasputina album interludes. "Too True" is an all-too-brief vocal piece that sounds like some lost record on 4AD that I wish I had heard before. Wow. "Herringbone" is a whispery, breathy, trippy, heavily-processed conversation. "She Turned Into The Dog" is just gorgeous ambience, sounds like an echoey cello or an e-bow with a bit of humming on top. This album is scary and weird. I like it very much. A mighty fine release.
