Amongst Myselves "Fragments" CD

Amongst Myselves aka Steve Roberts is another newcomer on my fave list, for long time unrecognized and mostly known for his appearance on "Chasing The Dawn: Ultima Thule Ambient Volume 01" CD compilation. Even if relatively unknown, "Fragments" is already 5th album of this Australian. "Smell Of The Sun" introduces the album more than effectively with its nice drifting and immersing ambience colored with few glitchy sonic adventures. Aerial "She Who Loves Silence" is again supported by various glitches and later also by catchy strings, very interesting I must say! Cicadas and bird sounds start "Morning In The Bowl Of Night", this gloomy piece is carried by cicadas through most of its length. "Field Of Broken Mirrors" is more experimental track with little touches of modern classical music in its first half, while the second part features again some strings. Fresh blend of modern classical elements with guitars and on-site recordings makes from "The Sunlit Tower" one of the highlights on "Fragments", amazing!!! Carried by ocean sounds, "Clouds Of Unknowing" is more minimalistic and dominated by field recordings, later melancholic guitars invade the track. Quietly drifting "City Of A Hundred Gates" and "Town On The Hill", mixture of storm, birds and ocean sounds and guitars, later shifted into pleasant synth washes, are another beauties on this album. "Haunted By The Ghosts Of Sounds" flows beautifully from bird calls to ethereal sound waves, a truly captivating end. "Fragments" is a very personal, colorful, warm and naturally sounding work of one of the most underrated artists in ambient genre. It's highly recommended to explore the soundworlds of Amongst Myselves!!!
