Egoismo by MMMΔ
Dark drones which ruffle and soothe in equal measure
Egoismo, a new six-track album by Greek duo MMMΔ (short for Mohammad) and it's been my primary bed time choice of late. It's dirge music on the right side of funereal. A dark, sweeping, circling vibe pervades, like a menacing crow overhead, sometimes with long waves of synthesiser notes, rising and falling, other times, guitar feedback fermata and drawn-out double bass create a clandestine tension. Gregorian chanting with a folky streak introduces light and balance, even though a chiming church bell hints at the horror western Sergio Leone never made. It's a strangely alluring place for a late night retreat.
