(Quick Take) Post Global Trio – Minus Seven
Another great one from Amsterdam’s Shimmering Moods, who deserve major cred for putting out øjeRum’s Naar Vi Vaagner in April, this time from the Macedonian Post Global Trio (Dimitar Dodovski helming an array of electronics, Toni Dimitrov gathering field-recordings as well as taking the cover photo, Martin Georgievski on guitar and synth): the ethno-ambience of Minus Seven. Nothing too serious going on here, just four sprawling helpings of some fourth-world music cross-pollinating electronica with exotica and calming field-recordings– pure bliss, but with a lightness to it. Toni Dimitrov’s oblique recordings of nature and everyday hubbub give a relaxing backdrop to the story-travelogue. Playful stabs from synth and swirling dives and re-surfaces in the mix (check “Part II”, in particular) may remind you a bit of dub and the steady pulse of techno. But knowing these guys, this thing was inspired by piles upon piles of ambient and electronic obscurities spanning the globe to the point where there’s no origin that stands out but the heart. Good stuff; make good and dive right in.
