REVIEW: Moljebka Pvlse & Cría Cuervos “Vid vägs ände” (Road’s End) – CD

Vid vägs ände (Road’s End) CD, 2011
Cohort Records, 128 Condo Street, Monticello, IN 47960 USA

Two long pieces, assembled by Sweden’s Moljebka Pvlse and Italy’s Cría Cuervos. Epic drone-ambients. “pa vndrande fot (Traveling By Foot)” fills the air nicely, with several twists and turns. It’s cinematic in spots. “det ar aldrig for sent att vanda om (It’s Never Too Late To Turn Back)” is a cleaner drone, reminding me of the music for the film ‘Baraka’, it feels profound, especially around the 20-minute mark, it sounds like a didjeridoo or its eastern equivalent, and a bit of feedback behind it. The last few minutes, with the reversed vocal sample loop is astounding. Gorgeous.
