suggestioni musicali a cura di raffaello russo
Taken from the new self titled Ptarmigan album, out August 26th.
Drawing inspiration from a breadth of artists, Ptarmigan first appeared on the scene with “Eliak and the Dream” in 2012. Recorded at the Lincoln County Social Club in Toronto and produced by James Bunton (Donovan Woods, Evening Hymns), Ptarmigan’s self-titled follow up album explores both the process of artistic creation and the fragility of divisions between past, present and future. The band delivers complex and evocative musicality, carving out meaning with lyrical allegory and texturally layered sound. Calling to mind celestial charts, sweeping windstorms, and otherworldly wanderings, these are songs that invite dreamscapes. Modern in their originality, shaded with medieval feeling, Ptarmigan is an anthology of an undefined time.
