Fursaxa - "Amulet"
(Last Visible Dog 2005, LVD 101)
From Aural Innovations #33 (March 2006)
I have never heard of this band but they have released several releases since 2000 and are on a label with cool bands like LSD March, Acid Mothers Temple, Bardo Pond, Circle, etc... so that was a very good sign. This project is all live and recorded at various locations between 2002 and 2004. The music is quite minimalist with mostly just guitar or organ and female voice or sounds and the voice is often looped. This is very special music and it reminds me of some of the odd Finnish stuff I have reviewed in the past. Very spiritual or pagan in some way. Great.
