Numina - Solace (cdr)
Numina - Solace (cdr) Quantity in Basket: None
Code: num04
Price: $11.99
Originally released in 2002. Re-pressed in September 2004 and finally back in stock!

"Who better to offer Solace than Jesse Sola? They're right next to each other in the dictionary after all; as Numina, Jesse sends sweet sonic gaseous into the space between your ears. Good old ambient floatations!

Too pretty to be too eerie, through a little of that quality also looms in the darkly glowing abstractions which softly expand and simmer through Luminous Form (Recalescence) (8:08). Sparklier When the Stars Fall is bespeckled with trickling tonal shards, dropping into a warmly thrumming nightsky.

The Visitor In Dreams is another layered droner which achieves a near-spookiness amid the full-blown loveliness of its hauntingly lush nocturnal drifts. The muted chaos of battered metals slowly penetrates the swirling glowstreams of Touching The Stem.

Sounding like a paen to Steve Roach's Structures From Silence-era material, Unaware of Dark Matter spews light, glinting trails through an amorphously boiling fogbank or tranquility. Subaquatic textures and phantasmal synthchoruses arise from Neverwhere (5:27); that especially fluid immersion prcedes finale Magnetic Aurora and its plaintive ray-crossed spaciousness.

As shapeless, lovely and tangible as a cloud, the sounds of Solace ring with Numina's thoughtfully applied touches. Subtly stunning ambience gets an impressed A- for 54+ minutes of free-flowing comfort."
