Duff Egan Loving this! One of those records that had to be listened to back to back and I now find myself returning for a third this evening. Peaceful and mysterious with an effective contrast of organic and other-worldly timbres. Reminds me of Oophoi and Klaus Wiese collaborations with the elegant incorporation of the bowl chiming into the imaginary landscape. One of my favorites of the year. Favorite track: The Water Shrine.

Brian Bourassa A Quiet, meditative three-pack of drones spanning approximately an hour. Their lack of emotional bias aids in their use as a meditative tonic. Favorite track: The Water Shrine.

earthMANTRA is proud to announce our latest release, a deep and beautiful 3-track drone journey by label newcomer SiJ entitled "The Water Shrine".

"This album seems to me as a fictional meditation-travel to a shrine of water. In this work I tried to reproduce a delicate, enveloping surround sound which would force the listener to dive and plunge into the atmosphere of the music. I believe that it is best to listen to this music at night or even sleep under it.

This album is the first chapter in the series "Shrine", which I plan to write." - Vladislav Sikach

As always, all music on eM is free for download. Listeners can pay for eM releases if they choose to do so, and all funds from those sales will go directly to the artists themselves - eM keeps nothing of these funds
