Boring Machines Disturbs Sleep: Solipsism

Boring Machines Disturbs Sleep

Saturday, December 30, 2006


Solipsism have posted three brand new tracks from their forthcoming album, which is due to be released later in 2007, on myspace. They kindly sent me the tracks for preview when they were 'works in progress' and this collaboration with vocalist Neil Carill of Vedette (and formerly of Delicatessen) is thoroughly enjoyable. The last time I posted on Solipsism, the duo claimed that they were leaving behind their electronic roots to "venture into the murky fusion of ambient and folk music" and they have stayed true to their word with this collaboration.

The tracks could be loosely labelled as Post-Folk or Ambient Folk. But my favourite track, "Pestilence" is highly infectious and features some real other-worldly vocals, courtesy of Carill. This has led me to label Solipsism's direction as Space-Folk. Regardless of genres, one thing you can be certain of is, you have never heard anything like this before . I am certainly looking forward to it, the tracks can be streamed here.
