Here are a couple of dark-ambient releases that I found and enjoyed recently:
- Nagual Art – Seance 1931 – Tales from F.
I love the atmosphere that Nagual Art creates here. The choice of sounds is superb. Scratchy vinyl and echoing clicks and taps give it a vintage feel, while ghostly drones and unsettling melodies on piano, violin and (possibly) harmonium conjure up the haunted atmosphere of a seance. Highly recommended.
Inspired by the story of the ghost of a girl who haunted the town of Wem in Shropshire and the photo that supposedly shows her, Last Nights of Paris uses deep, menacing drones with slow, ominous synth melodies to recreate the scenes of two fires.
