The stark landscapes and crisp climates that characterize the winter months can clarify, if not intensify, our emotions. Music released this time of year has a tendency to be especially raw and poignant, which is certainly the case for the six exceptional cuts featured on "Winter Selections 04."
Veteran American sensations Blugazer and The Cynic Project kick off this release with "Avalon," a chill contemplation that establishes the introspective tone of the release as a whole. Shortly into the track a heavy bassline emerges, followed by hypnotic vocals that fill the gaps between subtle crystalline effects. A break interlude at the song's halfway point showcases The Cynic Project's atmospheric accents, once again reminding us of the American duo's prowess for deep, mesmerizing progressions.
