    It was a while ago that I reviewed Daybreak EP from Lauge and Baba Gnohm. I was eagerly awaiting their upcoming album. Sadly, it seems as that project is laid on ice for the time being. But wipe your tears folks, because here is a free second EP from the duo, Monolith EP.

    “WOW!” is the first thing that comes to my mind. Every aspect of the music has been improved from the previous installment. Daybreak got criticism for being a little bit repetitive, lacking in diversity and variation. On Monolith the genuine Lauge and Baba feel is here, that slow pace, mellow tone, but now in an all new package with diversity, even more originality, greater production and composition. The tone is now much darker, but not necessarily so dark as to define it as dark ambient, but there is a more serious and profound feel to it. While Daybreak was not really psychedelic downtempo, though not stepping so far that it ended up being lounge, monolith really is the far side of Daybreak, there’s a ton of psychedelia here. It’s powerful, yet slow and highly contemplative. It sucks you in and there really is something hypnotic about this EP. That mystical, inexplicable, ungraspable but yet so perceivable feeling that defines, and is the very essence of psychedelic music is there the entire time. When I listen to Monolith I can sometimes almost feel the very fabric of space and time literally vibrating before my eyes, this is due to the extremely hypnotic nature of the music. It doesn’t force you into a mood, rather gently wraps you in. This is done so seductively that I fall for it every time. In fact, my infatuation for this EP is getting deeper every time I listen to it. The genuine essence and feel of great artists rests within the sound and silence of these tracks. What you get is a 4 track EP spinning over about 35 minutes, which is not bad when you consider it is an EP and given for free. Monolith has left me totally blown away, I’m aching for more Lauge and Baba Gnohm music. It’s a shame and a real puzzling question as to why no label has contacted and contracted this duo for an album release. If I had the money and time I would, without any second thoughts. The future seems very bright for Lauge and Baba Gnohm.

    Recomendation: If I say to you, this is “Ultimae standard” I guess you all know what to expect. This is not a joke or some sudden rush of enthusiasm, it’s really that good. Also skeptics of Ultimae might very well enjoy this since it’s not as beatless or minimal as many Ultimae releases. When I refer to Ultimae, it’s not the sound I am referring to, it’s the feel of extreme quality! Slow, moving, subtle, considerate, uplifting, melancholic, mystical, contemplative, groovy, the adjectives could be countless. Grab it, it’s free!!!!

    great work

  • lendelat says:

    my favourite album. every song is just perfect.

  • Jespar says:

    This is one of those released that shouldn’t be missed, if you’re really keen on (lightly) psychedelic downtempo.

    It’s a wee bit dark – it oozes of scandi-winter – but it’s really full of love and compassion. Even though the sound is rather dark, the sound interestingly makes for a good compadre through the long winters up here in Denmark. I know this from experience.

    Splendid, unique and ultimately warm soundscapes. It’s like a blanket.
