Mogard, Abul: And We 2LP
And We Are Passing Through Silently is the sublime first survey of reworks by cult synthesist, Abul Mogard. Rounding up divine renderings of songs by Aïsha Devi, Penelope Trappes (The Golden Filter), and nick nicely (heralded by luminaries of the US underground Ariel Pink and John Maus), the album culminates with Brian Eno's collaboration with Irish avant-folk band Fovea Hex. Also included is Abul's brand new rework of Becoming Animal's "The Sky Is Ever Falling" starring vocals from Cinder (This Mortal Coil, Cindytalk) and Massimo Pupillo on bass (Zu, Thurston Moore, Stephen O' Malley). Houndstooth have long been admirers of Abul Mogard's beautifully stately, romantic melancholia for the best part of this decade. Leading on from Abul Mogard's Above All Dreams album in 2018 (ELP 037LP), and following veiled live appearances across Europe, And We Are Passing Through Silently offers another tantalizing window onto one of modern synth music's rarest spirits. A must for fans of Alessandro Cortini, Pye Corner Audio, Fennesz, Gas. Cut and mastered by Matt Colton; Manufactured at Optimal Media, Germany.
