The Centauri Agent

Hey folks,

I've been meaning to post some actual music on this blog for a while, so here's a new double LP by Natural Snow Buildings that has just been released as a download only album. So, no shame in visiting Mediafire and grabbing a copy. However, you should check out this label in the process. They are on a mission to provide free high quality music. This release might be a bit strange for some of you, but it's an amalgam of drones and dark folk. Some of the tracks feature vocals, but most are long spaced out psych jams. Natural Snow Buildings is a duo from France, consisting of artists Mehdi Ameziane and Solange Gularte. Both members of Natural Snow Buildings release music also as solo artists: Mehdi Ameziane as TwinSisterMoon and Solange Gularte as Isengrind. This release is a special treat, as most of their output comes in extremely limited quantities and is pretty hard to grab with grubby paws.

The Centauri Agent is Natural Snow Buildings’ first release of 2010, the free-for-download double LP. On part one, the 41 minute “Our man from Centauri” sets the stage, a cosmic, sprawling opener with themes that continue on into “The accidental remote viewer”, before fizzling out into static. Part two is comprised of nine beautiful and intense tracks (particular stand-outs including “The Psychic Circle/Uchronia”, “The storm of resurrection”, and “Solar flares”). Lovely and intricately woven as ever, while frequently heading off into new and challenging sonic territory, Mehdi and Solange have created yet another very special work of musical art with The Centauri Agent!

Part One:
1-Our man from Centauri
2-The accidental remote viewer

Part Two:
1-The Psychic Circle/Uchronia
2-Black holes
3-The storm of resurrection
4-Moscow signal
5-Phantom twin
6-Stuttering probe
7-Solar flares
8-Emergency network farewell broadcast
9-Memories found in a bill from a small animal vet

  1. 'the centauri agent' is very rad; however, if this is anyone's first exposure to this band, be sure to track down some of their older work, especialllllly 'the dance of the moon and the sun' (which is perpetually sold out, so don't feel bad about using the google).
