sontag shogun and moskitoo

Disturbingly beautiful, a forthcoming heading out of the Home Normal sound house, a rare 7-inch event no less, limited to just 500 copies. The release tied to coincide with Sontag Shogun’s tour of Spain and Portugal towards the end of the year features them cosying up with Moskitoo for two tender performances. An utterly affectionate and adorable aural apparition, ‘the things we let fall apart’ emerging frosted and fragile, delicately sculptured in thawing ice tones, the symphonics delicately shy eyed and whispered are breathlessly beguiled by a graceful neo classical hush, the effect really is entrancing as it is teasingly brief, sitting somewhere between a very youthful Mum and Smile Down Upon Us. ‘thunderswan’ over on the flip is expressed with the kind of poise and musical poetry that shimmers and twinkles to those early post YMO outings from Ryuichi Sakamoto, its minimal toning sweetly gathering to blossom into caressing cinematic crushes dappled in surrendering sepia hazes, a most exquisite and rarefied thing of bewitching beauty.
