Country: France
Size: 102 Mb

01. Hieronimus

Description: Hailing from Toulouse in the South of France, SAÅAD is composed of Romain Barbot and Greg Buffier. The prolific pair have been spending the dark hours of night-time exploring the realms of sound for a few years now with a combination of epic, abstract drone and ambient improvisations, new concepts, elaborate murky atmospheres, and a strong visual identity as the trademark of their collaboration. 
This new full-length album "Orbs & Channels" immerses listeners into the maze of a haunted and shadowy invisible world where superstition plays a key role. Making audible that which cannot be uttered, it is an ode to the beyond, the expression of the inexpressible that is associated to it, and an echo of unfathomable grief. After a handful of fascinating albums and appearances on various compilations - most of them released on tape or digital format through their own record label BLWBCK - we're delighted to have these fellow sound experimentalists carrying out their intriguing research in the Hands in the Dark lab.

Endless Melancholy - Five Songs

Endless Melancholy - Five Songs

Genre: Piano/Contemporary Instrumental/Modern Composition
Format: mp3 | CBR320kbps
Country: Ukraine
Size: 30 Mb

01. We Have Met Before
02. A Place Called Home
03. Leave
04. Nowhere, Never
05. Nostalgia

Description: "Five Songs" is a small, semi-improvised EP, recorded in one week. Please, find some time to take a listen while having your morning cup of tea or coffee. Don't forget to think of the ones you love and where do your roots come from. Don't forget to think of a place you were born. And remember one very important thing: this is not the end.

Titles of tracks 1 and 4 are inspired by a poem of Ukrainian poet Ivan Androschuk:

Мы с Вами где-то встречались
(розмінна фраза)

А ми зустрічались. Не тут і не в цьому столітті –
В наступному кадрі, чи може, в минулому світі,
Можливо, були ми квітками в одному суцвітті,
Чи просто – сусідніми днями в спекотному літі.

А ми зустрічались. Лиш спогад у пам'яті стерся.
Можливо, були ми двома половинками серця,
Луною і криком, чи змістом одного мовчання –
Ніде і ніколи, та все- таки ми зустрічались.

Ніде і ніколи, та все-таки ми зустрічались…
Два промені зірки в холодному просторі мчали,
Два промені зірки на мить перетнулись в дзеркалах:
А ми зустрічались…
А ми зустрічались…
А ми зустрічались…
