Innerwoud - Mirre

by Brian Lange. Rating:7 Release Date:2015-12-14

Evil cellos beckon black cloaked apparitions that move soundlessly across foggy landscapes. Mirre is not for the faint of heart. Many images and thoughts are likely to be conjured up listening to this four-track EP by Belgian artist Innerwoud. 

A one man band on the double-bass, Innerwoud delivers haunting sounds apropos evening explorations in fantasy worlds. Perhaps akin to the soundtrack to a melancholy Norwegian film or the discovery of underground Cold War experimental laboratories in the unforgiving mountains of Russia.

This EP is definitely not the sort of thing you would simply queue up on iTunes and listen to. An entire full-length record of this stuff may be overwhelming, even for me.  There’s not a lot of variance in the tracks, which is why it works well as a supplement to something else; by that I mean, without taking anything away from the strength of the work, it is the perfect sort of “soundtrack” music.  If you happen to be in a remote area, isolated from human contact, you may not want to put this on.  It might drive you mad, literally.

This sort of music is why phonographs exist.  You will want to put yourself in a dark and comfortable space to really absorb the environment that is created.  If you have a subwoofer or good bass abilities on your sound system, you’ll get good use out of them when you put this on.
