230 Divisadero – A Vision Of Lost Unity EP* [MILKMOON03]


*/Available here/ http://www.milkandmoon.com/catalog_6.htm...


230 Divisadero is a new project by *Matt Shaw* (Tex La Homa) and *Nick
Grey* (48 Cameras) : songs and music written and recorded between
England and Canada.

The music of 230 Divisadero conveys a deep end-of-the-world /
lost-at-sea feeling, a sense of sadness yet (perhaps unfulfilled) hope
triggered by misty soundscapes, torpid arrangements and psychedelic
electronics.

A Vision Of Lost Unity features natural and electronic sounds and
atmospheres that can bring to mind the drone music of Sunn O))) or the
electronic pulses you might find in a track by coil, two amongst many,
many different influences. Additionally, Matt and Nick are currently
working on a full-length release, to be expected late 2006.


*+ The Players :*

UK based singer / composer / producer *Matt Shaw* has released several
beautifully received albums and Eps under the name *Tex La Homa*
on labels such as Talitres, Acuarela and Moon
Palace. His current projects involve new Tex La Homa recordings and live
dates, also an EP is due for release in Japan by Knurb, a collaboration
between Matt and Masayuki Miyoshi. Matt is also working on recordings
for Mind Expansion records and Astro Lab.

*Nick Grey* lives in France and Canada and has been releasing intriguing
music since 2002. His projects for 2006 involve two new releases on
Hand/eye and Barl-Fire Recordings, and collaborations with the Far Black
Furlong ensemble (see MILKMOON04), Kris Force (Amber Asylum) and more.
He is a member of *48 Cameras* and
*°catlandgrey°*.


/(...) misty drones, pulses, non-word vocals, hallucinogenic
electronics, feedback attacks and mournful cello playing. This is
good stuff that manages to surprise by combining subtle drone
characteristics with repetitious aggression - /*Broken Face*/

Entre post rock et electronica vaporeuse, ce EP redonne au sens
d'aventurier une âme, loin des balises Argos et des gps, loin de la
technologie et des avidités de records, plus près de la vie et de la
mort - /*A Découvrir Absolument*/

Eerie psychedelic songs that weave electronic ambience in with noise
and abstract modernism. Droning thunderous repetitions lull you but
then your smacked with harsh distorted tones. (...) Pulsating waves
of sonic acid weave through the tapestry that was expertly mixed
with precision. Interesting and yet wildly disturbing all at once. -
/*Smother Magazine*/

A Vision of Lost Unity présente un amalgame sourd, ambiant et
nébuleux, que fracturent en douceur sons de cordes désenchantés et
psychédélisme rampant. Le drone est dans la place - /*D-Side*


*
Still available :


[MILKMOON02] °catlandgrey° - S/t*

/(…) cet album onirique se fait un malin plaisir d’accompagner, avec
une délicatesse insistante, chaque instant d’abandon. Un genre de
psychédélisme miniature, éclairé à la bougie plutôt qu’à la
pyrotechnie, empruntant son bucolisme au folk, mais aussi son
anxiété à l’electronica et au free-rock. Il y a un lézard sur la
pochette, mais aucun dans ce disque.

/*Céline Rémy / Les Inrocks*/

(…) ces deux-là font la paire pour transformer de petites mélodies
tristes et simples en projet conceptuel ambitieux, et atteignent sur
ce court album une profondeur souvent impressionnante. – /*Popnews*/

Quelque chose d'éternel et de charnel à la fois. Poignant. -/* A
Decouvrir Absolument*
