The music of Aukai is like the lost sound of an ancient and refined civilization. It’s both familiar and new, the sound of ancestral spirits touched by a modern hand. It’s a project of Markus Sieber from the duo, Mirabai Ceiba.
We open fall with an autumnal CD of the Month, the debut album by Slow Meadow. Slow Meadow is Matt Kidd who previously made music as Aural Method. With the guidance of the post-rock band Hammock, Slow Meadow creates a serene expanse of elongated melodies and deep textures. This is music that owes as much to Arvo Pärt as Brian Eno.
