mumble(speak) III - 'real and imagined scenarios'
Available for pre-order now:
http://mumblespeak.bandcamp.com/album/iii-real-and-imagined-scenarios



'real and imagined scenarios' is the third full length album by electronic drone act mumble(speak) following on from a number of independently produced and released albums, EPs and compilation tracks. This album is musically the most varied and well rounded so far and is the first time mumble(speak) has had guests contribute to the material.
Special guests are: Laura Altman (Great Waitress/The Splinter Orchestra), Carolyn Gannell (Laura/Bodies Drawn Backwards), Felix Ratcliff (Time Office), Mark Spybey (Dead Voices On Air/Zoviet France) and stage & film actor (and former drummer for Sea Scouts) Sara Pensalfini. This album presents dark menacing drone pieces alongside melodic and melancholic odes to the departed, utilising, drifting guitar, field recordings, spoken word and electronically manipulated acoustic instruments, all wrapped up in a dream logic.

It is released August 29, 2014 on limited edition CD and download via: http://mumblespeak.bandcamp.com/album/iii-real-and-imagined-scenarios

For your interest.

Quote:
III - real and imagined scenarios offers 11 haunting meditations that are rich and multi-layered while maintaining a sense of ever expanding space; the depthless chasm of the unconscious perhaps. There is a timelessness to these pieces with little sense of urgent progression, yet they never succumb to stasis. The palette of sounds across the album melds recognisable midi and acoustic instruments with field recording and otherworldly sounds from unidentifiable sources. This is the first time Warren has used instrumental and sample contributions from other artists—Laura Altman, Carolyn Gannell, Felix Ratcliff, Mark Spybey and Sara Pensalfini—which he has interwoven subtly and effectively, particularly on the track “Loud as Ghosts.” “Entropic Flush” and “Departure” feature arpeggiated guitar which lends the album a folktronic flavour. Spoken text occasionally appears, sometimes as texture, sometimes as fragments of narrative and is generally well pitched and evocative with the exception of “silence” uttered at the end of “Entropic Flush,” which feels overstated. But as a whole, real and imagined scenarios presents a wonderfully dark and complex sonic world, offering equal parts pleasure and perturbation.
