REVIEW | WAND. AND PRINCESS - FUNERAL FLOWERS

Frans de Waard | Vital Weekly

A twenty minute tape from tis duo from Greece of whom we reviewed stuff before. They dwell on obscurity I guess, with lo-fi covers and lo-fi music. Lo-fi in that sense that we don't know how this music is made, recorded with low means but with an overall nice impact. 'Ice' on side one seems to be recorded with a bunch of cymbals being played with bows, all at the same time, along with perhaps a bunch of delay pedals. That gives us a somewhat crude and atmospheric sound, ringing aloud in the world of overtones. 'Fauda 2' is on the b-side and its a crashing event of distorted sound - of the wall of noise type of thing, but actually this one is pretty good, I think. It certainly has, at nine minutes, the right length.
