This single track release by the contemporary Icelandic cellist and modern classical composer Hildur Guðnadóttir is not for the light hearted. Full of crying strings, pulling at the soul in just the right places, the music swells and moans for a little over eleven minutes. But during this time, something drops within your spirits with the bounce of the bass, and the funeral procession to all things past is at last gone. Featuring Jóhann Jóhannsson and Skúli Sverrisson, this digital-only release from Touch is a companion download to Guðnadóttir's Without Sinking (2009) which immediately landed a spot on Headphone Commute's Best of 2009 : Music For Watching The Snow Slowly Fall In The Moonlight. Nevermind that this piece is over a year old now - it's perfect to carry us over until Hildur's another release. In addition to great production on this piece, the sound was mastered by BJNilsen, so you can be sure to find all of your tiny ear canal hairs trembling. Don't forget to check out a recent remastered reissue pf 2006, Mount A, available from Touch Shop and your favorite outlets. Alos, read Headphone Commute's Two and a Half Questions with Hildur Guðnadóttir. Recommended if you love soul wrenching melancholic music...
