The Green Kingdom - Solaria [Sound In Silence 080]

Coming in from the Greek headoffice of the Sound In Silence label only recently is "Solaria", the new, March 27th, 2k21-released and eight tracks and roughly 40 minutes spanning album project created by Michigan-based producer x composer Michael Cottone under his musical moniker The Green Kingdom. Once again following his approach to amalgamate and blur the lines between what is described as 'soundscapes and structure' in the accompanying press release Cottone presents a fragile, icy and somewhat brittle take on Ambient atmospheres combined with harmonic swells and naturalist guitar of a well minimalist nature in the opener "Atmosphere 1" whilst the subsequent "Arc" relies on a sparse IDM / ChillOut pulse in combination with elegic, cinematic strings and a touch of Electronica before drifting off into a realm of folksy Post-PostRock meets PopAmbient. "Sol 1" indulges deeply in a dreamy, slightly twangy PopAmbient meets Balearic fusion, "Landform" presents itself as a perfect, slightly guitar-infused soundtrack to wind down after a long and hot day whereas the concluding cut that is "Atmosphere 2" dives deep into lazy sunday summer afternoon dreamworld as well just to name a few. Beautiful, once again.
