vinter

"Evanescent psychedelia and haunting post-folk stylings on this beautiful debut record by acid folk band Vinter. Sounds like small steps of a troll-like creature on the thin frozen crust on the snow, with heavy boots and a faulty compass. "dream-like fairy-tale worlds, airy meadows, beautiful gardens and a winter-shrouded sadness ... low-key, folk-like structures blend with strange sounds to form a patchwork of meditative images tainted by an elusive sense of desolation. The fragmentary compositions are held together by an outstanding vocal performance that brings Carin Wagner, as well as Christina Carter (Charalambides, Scorces, etc.), to mind ... In spite of the relatively dark atmosphere their music is characterized by their impressive sense of space and detail." Mats Gustafsson

Recorded on a dark winter afternoon and lovingly packaged in a ribbed paper cover with hand-lettered design. cd-r edition of 200
