“the once and future world”
Label: Helmet Room Recordings
“the once and future world” is a brilliant title for an absolutely engaging instrumental release. The music is just as pondering, dark and beautiful as the title of the CD would suggest. Lush textures and melodies accompanied by faint and distance rhythms. The average track length is just long enough to put you into a comfortable trance-like state without over staying it’s welcome. The CD packaging is more utilitarian than anything, offering little more than extremely minimalistic (though appropriate) art, a track list, credits and absolutely no information on “mingo” himself. Produced extremely well and an absolute joy to listen to. Stand out track: “time turned new”.
