The lovely chaps at Norman records have decided that they like “Slow Music for Rapid Eye Movement” by Ekca Liena so much, that it’s their record of the week! Many thanks to Phil and the team for that, Ekca is dead chuffed.
Here’s what they said about it:
“Ekca Liena is another new name to me. It’s another of those releases on the Dead Pilot label and this one is limited to 100 copies in a metal tin. We all thought it looked well swish as the metal tin has a sort of large port hole in the middle of it for the artwork to poke through into your eyes. It’s called ‘Slow Music For Rapid Eye Movement’ and it struck me on first listen as pretty smart. Ambient, post rock, drone and eletronica all mixed up into a pot and all connected together very melodically. I hear a lot of music and what struck me about this was they really have a fine ear for melody as it sounds really well composed and put together. There’s a lot of people making music like this now but this sits head and shoulders above almost all of it due to the simple fact this guy is clearly really talented. I’ll be gutted now if his next record is shite….. Bits of Tim Hecker in some of the tracks, that warm fuzzy thing he does so well is here ‘n all….. some Eno as well…. some Stars of The Lid, hints of more recent Murcof and possibly quite a bit of Global Communication. It’s simply gorgeous with more warmth, depth and soul in a record than I’ve heard for a long long time. Fans of drone and melodic electronica will simply adore this I reckon. I think there’s gonna be some special records coming from this guy. Well lovely. Phil x”
