A special magic surrounds this deeply evocative album, which is motivated by cinema, mythology and autobiographical exploration, striving to inject human soul into the cyclical repetition and sampled choral voices played by Brooklyn-based Kanaan in real time. With vinyl divided into ‘Dusk To Evening’ and ‘Underworld/Dream-state’ sides, tracks such as ‘Hesperides’, ‘Birds Of Myrrh’ and ‘Night Tide/Anteros’ swell with modern classical beauty (sometimes recalling Martin Rev’s ‘Stigmata’), while ‘The Archer’ and ‘The Heron’ are bathed in sepulchral pagan resonance. It’s all remarkably unusual.
