Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet – Selected Sleep Studies

[Reviewed by: Iaha Crax]

This collection of songs is a vehicle for dreaming. We are assigned to different dream-like experiences mirrored on the background of our daily habits. An underlying tone of storytelling permeates the sweet flowing of each melody as we sense a spectral presence all along the music. The authors have created the album over 100 days, taking inspiration from oneiric life, and for each day they imagined a song. They have selected 11 tracks for this occasion given by the Mahorka label.

Images are typically subtle and unaffected and contribute to a schematic digital luring. There is a sincere and modest countenance that inflates our fragile soul-kit. 

The duo is based in Sweden and already released a couple of records but this project –to compose a song per day- surely surpasses everything they did before, at least in terms of length. As diverse as it gets, the atmosphere ranges from light ambient grooves to psychedelic creative qualms.

The limited edition tape adds an emotional dust to the recording, we are once more lying in the bed of grand-fathers, watching their black and white family pictures and trying to re-live dreams, nightmares that once haunted the same places now long time forgotten. As with good wine in the cellar, tasting these kind of memories from the music of Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet will get us to appease the noisy trifles of the present.
