Release notes:

Conceived by horror prog maven Daniel OSullivan, Mothlites sumptuous debut
suggests post-Syd Pink Floyd passing through the looking glass. Its sylvan
procession of keys, violin and woodwind is dramatized by vocals that echo Talk
Talks dislocated English melancholy and the choral spook of olde world
madrigals. Mojo

Brakhage used found debris to startle viewers with a dynamic celebration of
colour and light, whereas The Flax of Reverie is original material cast in dusk
and shifting shadows to trigger nostalgia and disquiet. Wire

Like some black-cowled Merlin straight out of a Kenneth Anger movie, serial
collaborator Daniel OSullivan applies his blackened midas to yet another piece
of perfect darkness scraped from the bowels of some forgotten Albion. Vice

Mothlites debut is a mix of more organic Ulver type atmospherics, dark Pink
Floyd, jazz, post-rock/ prog, dark psychedelics, modern classical and dank
English air. All to make a wonderful rich and darkly tinged filmatic experience.
Musique Machine

Something of a shadowy iconoclast, Daniel OSullivan has been making darkly
sensuous music, heavy on the obscurantism, for some time now, be it with Guapo,
Miasma & The Carousel Of Headless Horses, thenor or Sunn 0))). On his latest
project he teams once more with programmer/producer Antti Uusimaki to script a
beautifully composed macabre fairytale for adults... Grim like the Brothers, as
heavy as an anvil made of clouds. Rock-a-Rolla

Theres a feeling of delirium to Mothlites debut, a whirling carousel of
imagery and soundscapes which ripples from delicacy to tightly-controlled bursts
of impressive energy. The simple description might be post-modern prog-opera a
better explanation would take around 50 minutes, and a deep listening with
possible captivation by intricate and occasionally overpowering beauty as a
consequence. Plan B

Slickly sewn into this by orchestrated insect rustlings is The One In The
Water, in which Pink Floyd psychedelia and Lewis Carroll-esque lyrics frolic.
Darker crevices are also unearthed as rumbling cellos and macabre choir pervade
The Untouched Dew, while a sense-seducing bassoon gnaws at Neverbegoodwood.

It is so richly composed, performed and produced. A testament to OSullivans
compositions and Uusimakis production. The musical ideas are so clear and
definite, Mothlite know exactly what they are doing, where they are taking us,
and have created a unique and stunning album. Freq

A closeness to the listener, a fascinating way with melody that makes you
question everything you thought you knew about tuneful songwriting, and an
ability to be both comforting and unnerving often in the space of one sentence.

Terrific London duo Mothlite deliver a mix of hypnotic, quasi-devotional spooked
folk, eerie drones and ambient electronica, as on intriguing recent album, The
Flax Of Reverie. Time Out


astonishing band
Не моё, даже до половины альбом не дослушал. huh.gif
в лучших традициях пост-рока!!! ((: пасиба огроменное!
Млин, офигенно, хотя и немного какофонично...
З.Ы. Особенно понравился голос, в пост-роке голос как правило не катит, а тут отличненько
З.Ы.Ы. Местами на пинк флойдец смахиваетsmile.gif
Неоднозначная музыка, но очень понравились.
А духовые вставочки сногсшибательны!!

до жути разнообразная и потрясающая музыка.

дико атмосферно и неповторимо


some hearts are true
хм.. на ласт.фм в Similar Artists первыми стоят Guapo и Miasma & The Carousel of Headless Horses.
если это действительно так, то однозначно стоит заценить )

неа, ни на Гуапо, ни на Миазму не похоже...
зато частенько вспоминались Kayo Dot, не знаю почему))
Релиз на самом деле заслуживает внимания, хорошая работаwink.gif
