The balmy, languid days of summer are a perfect time to discover the arcadian sounds of Albosel, an ambient folk trio from Nottingham, UK and their new album, Container about to be released on Hawk Moon Records. Theirs is an ethereal and melancholic sound built around pristine guitar lines intertwined with layers of gauzy vocals, and a delicate smattering of electronics, violin, & flute.
Add the charmingly esoteric song titles, fetching melodies, and overall less-is-more aesthetic and it is an inviting package. Like an ice cream at the end of a hot day, it may not last long, but you can still get immersed in its pleasures. Lovely stuff.
Container will be released August 3 by Hawk Moon in a very limited vinyl-effect CDr edition (56 copies). Pre-orders are now available.
