Review of Mount Carmel [12k1090]

Music Won’t Save You (IT)

Translated from Italian:

At first under the alias Light Of Woods (“Field Notes”, 2016) and then with the abbreviation M. Grig (two Ep in the last two years), Mike Grigoni explores an electro-acoustic constellation linked to the natural environment and impressions connected to it.

The artist from Durham, North Carolina, condenses for the first time in an organic album a conglomeration of visions and personal memories, embodied by a sequence of placidly oozed notes from the strings of an acoustic guitar, a dobro and a lap steel. The peculiar “environmental” declination of Grigoni does not include any electronic filtering, but only field recordings and occasional vocalizations to frame the ecstatic purity.
