A Putrid Oasis
The following appeared on An Adventurer in Text. A review copy of 'A Putrid Oasis' from Soleilmoon Recordings, the compilation disc to be included with 'Muslimgauze: Chasing the Shadow of Bryn Jones' arrived a week ago and I gave it several diligent listens. I think it a fairly good touchstone of musical styles Bryn Jones worked with during the last decade of his life. Soleilmoon was good enough to also include an unreleased track to give completists extra incentive to pick up the book when it finally is out. I continue to marvel at styles, textures, samples, and melodies Jones worked with to fashion something unique. I would go further to say that at it’s best, music borders on the sublime and 'A Putrid Oasis' hints at the riches to be found in the vast discography.
