Reveal by Elskavon

Elskavon cd

Reveal, the third album from Chris Bartels’ ambient project Elskavon, is a magical blend of beautiful sonic textures, slowly played piano and guitar, and sparsely placed post-rock drums. There is a deep feeling of fluidity and spaciousness on Reveal, perhaps due to the album having been composed in Minneapolis where water is abundant and the winters are cold, snowy and long. The synthesizer pads, guitar and piano are calming, soothing and mesmerizing, while the addition of percussion on several of the tracks adds an energizing, uplifting and driving force. All of the tracks are superbly produced and reflect Bartels’ experience writing music for film, television and online projects.

Shakti Guitar by Stevin McNamara

Shakti Guitar : A Yogic Journey from Dawn to Deepest Night

Stevin McNamara’s seventh solo album, Shakti Guitar, is a mesmerizing 75-minute soundtrack that pairs well with the ebb and flow of a yoga practice. This mystical sonic journey begins with the soothing sounds of nylon-string guitar, bansuri flute and tambora, inspired by the quiet and awakening energies of dawn. We are slowly brought into the fiery aliveness of midday in the fourth track with a faster tempo through the addition of upbeat drums and percussion. The remainder of the CD travels into the nighttime with slower tempos, less instrumentation and the notable addition of beautiful Indian female vocals.
