Artist: HALA STRANA
Title: These Villages
Format: CD
Label: Soft Abuse
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Three albums in, Steven R. Smiths new Hala Strana project has delivered its first masterpiece. Following his first two full-lengths from last year (Hala Strana on Emperor Jones and Fielding on Jewelled Antler) comes These Villages, a further culmination of Smiths interest in Eastern European folk music. Smiths original compositions are peppered with interpretations of traditional songs, presenting the collision of his musical interests throughout his rather prolific career over the past decade. Built upon layers of sustained drone & delicately plucked and bowed strings, These Villages creates a seemless, almost raga-like environment, with quiet-loud dynamics aplenty. Its a dark record, a definite work of beauty, and a perfect soundtrack for autumns changing leaves and howling winds." - Soft Abuse.
