Just under a year on since the drop of the label’s debut LP – the excellent ‘Elixir Of Immortality‘ from St. Petersburg sound alchemist Mårble, Emmanuel Corre and Silvère Letellier revive Natural Selections with a second album drawing in the same lode of organically-grown electronics, velvet ambient gleam and new-age-y therapeutics, as it sits us in the midst of some mysterious and idyllic rainforest, straight from Deep Nalström‘s wildest dreams and ayahuasca-induced visions.
Originally known for his visual designer’s output, including numerous collabs with Nummer, Guillaume de Ubéda alias Deep Nalström here demonstrates a certain mastery in brushing widescreen, immersive sound mosaics under strong exotica influence; engulfing us into a world of Arcadian quiet and breathtaking beauty.
Lifted from ‘Naive Melodies‘, our premiere ‘The Dream People‘ blends nostalgic tides of chimey synths within a sense-whelming patchwork of faint toms, didgeridoo, collaged vox samples and animal noises, to form what sounds like the lovechild of Mort Garson ‘Plantasia‘ and Midori Takada ‘Through The Looking Glass‘. Primed for the dreamy afternoons, this one’s a blissed out gem, half-way root-lifting vegetal funk and slo-cook tantric explorations. Vibes galore.
Naive Melodies is released via Natural Selections on May 10th, pre-order a copy from Chez Emile Records.
