‘Somnium pt II’ is like a lost Death In June track beaming in from a parallel universe – deep voice singing in German, breezy acoustic guitars, sparse rhythmic backdrop, orchestral strings, light percussion – and a beautiful chorus melody that lodges in your brain after just one listen. ‘Somnium pt IV’ has a relaxed jazzy swing rhythm, over which the Grandmaster recites poetry by Mallarme, with ethereal femme vocals from Vera W’r…H (sic), over a backdrop of organ, piano, acoustic guitar and drums. Final track ‘Somnium pt VII’ is an ambient tour de force, lasting almost 14 minutes, of drones, gregorian chants, distant choirs, spoken word vocals, backwards sounds and voices.
