AMULET OF TEARS

explorations in ambient since 2020


AMULET 033: EKIN FIL

This month’s Amulet of Tears mix comes from Istanbul-based artist Ekin Fil, which is veiled in reechoing wind, freefalling from misty sky.

The mix embodies acoustic qualities over tangibility of the spatial structure of turbulence - the sound, which unites phenomena, a vast world in yielding shafts, pliant brims with billows - stream of rush-hour merged into a single point.


TEARS011 & TEARS012 ARE OUT NOW

2 new releases by Verge and Arkhad/KAOSMOS are out now. Available in full for streaming on all major platforms and for purchase on Bandcamp.

TEARS011: Verge - Perspective

Where the waters seethe, traced the echoes running along the ridge. Grown into mounds - speck of dust, above and beneath, bent in their tensile way. 'Perspective' resembles graying daze for the tense lows, that holds subdued gentleness. Belfast based musician - Verge has brought his exalted grandeur to aural fluency in the vein of gauzy, filmy rumbles.

TEARS012: Arkhad/KAOSMOS

Accumulation of vulnerability, collective world of avalanches, this ancient land - ascendance, that so often takes on the countenance of being in more than one place. The patterns repeat themselves, adorned in anguish, with a feeling, compelled to vaunt - lustrous arrival in overwhelming lines. 'The Lost Columns' is a deluge of unbroken slashes in Arcadia between Arkhad and KAOSMOS. Arriving at the same place, in the presence of mutual accord.

The piece will be released in a split with Arkhad along TEARS011 by Verge. Pre-order will be available on Friday, February 3rd.


TEARS012 PREMIERE: ARKHAD - I KNOW A PLACE

Antiquated frames
Of night pool
Shining on steady shore
A mirror for seeing tumultuous sky
Tiles graven as sabulous coast

Ladders rolled into forlorn sheaves
Like bootlegged boose In dark doldrums
Wind between ground and lid
Arcane hovels pervade in dawn.

TEARS012 coming soon...


TEARS011 PREMIERE: VERGE - STANDING WATER

Deluded way in woodlands
Thousands of oaks - grow hushed
Dangling
Fog gobbles stubborn barricades
Empty caves rumble through gaps

Breathing flesh
Burnt banyan

Remember again, who's dreaming?
Who served the night with closed eyes?

TEARS011 coming soon...


AMULET 031: UNDVELD

Undveld composed sounds of vital noise, shored against the wondrous ruins for Amulet of Tears.

Inner visions brought into sharper focus on mysterious efflorescence.
 The gate opens dizzyingly like a sheaf of wolts, beam of torch - a nonbeing can hold. Roaming shift of perspectives comes obscurely like thundering ale, whereas cryptical plateau meets untamed colloquy between phantoms.

Among the inexhaustible striking releases, Undveld is co-running the Lithuanian label static motion and is a part of the Swedish label offworldcolonies.ltd.

AMULET 030 BY DROTTNING OMMA

Polychrome and insomnolent stains render into serpentine contours - mixed by Drottning Omma for Amulet of Tears.

Monumental heights charmed by coldness, moving into vertiginous mass of emotional resonance. Maelstrom continues in a highly textured collation through ploughed fields, fostering the magnetism of pavers covered with verglas - hear the ashes rise.

Part of the Swedish label - offworldcolonies.ltd - Drottning Omma coalesces an immense stream of palpable grounds.

ANASISANA COMES BACK WITH AMULET029


Ethereally abounding tunes with silken chords held together. Bouquet of melodiousness assembled by Anasisana for Amulet of Tears.

White heat slowly lifting the curtain to greet the scenery of the mix - elegantly escorted and carried by delicate hands that shapes, rather than grounds - interferes into the porous air. All shades of drizzle from every branch drips and swells skyward.

Anasisana comes into the view with his thick glaze of cordial, soul-stirring music pieces which amass over each other - ardently, solidly, fervently.
