Somnoroase Pasarele - AGONAL [Submarine Broadcasting Company]

Coming in via mail from Moldova recently is "Agonal", one of the most recent tape releases by 1971-born composer Gili Mocanu conceived under his musical alias that is Somnoroase Pasarele. Put out on the circuit via the Submarine Broadcasting Company on September 30th, 2k22 the six track cassette embarks on a journey into a realm of beautiful, touching and minimalist, almost organ-like Ambient movements as well as deeply retrofuturist sci-fi score sounds especially prevalent in cuts like "AG" whereas the subsequent "AGO" presents dramatic, powerful vintage synth bass tones and cascading space harmonies which are even more present and yearning in the ever climaxing "AGON", the first cut on the flipside of the tape, before "AGONA" presents intense, washed out and slowly degrading Cold Ambient x UnAmbient layers reminiscent of toxic gas clouds on hostile, life-defying exoplanets whilst the final extended cut that is "AGONAL" pairs unsettling warped, ever morphing suction sounds with a background layer of brittle, nervously vibrating Minimal Ambient for a closing. Spine-tingling stuff for all cassette collectors out there.
