Ambient Bliss: Cinchel – Quiet Nights, Lonesome Woods


Artist: Cinchel

Title: Quiet Nights, Lonesome Woods EP

Released: June 2013

Label: (self-released)

Format: Digital

Genre: Ambient, drone, experimental

The music is THICK.  It’s layered with so many levels of sound, so many various types of sound and so much finesse that it astounds me.  This isn’t your typical chill out album, this is your lay-in-a-field-at-midnight-and-watch-the-stars-during-a-meteor-shower type of album.

The track “Tiny Woodland Creatures” takes a mellow turn, creating a chorus of clangs, clanks and other odd rhythmic sounds.  It is a bit of a drone track at its start but evolves into a gentle yet lively track.  I can picture small critters moving about silently at night as this song plays through.

“Reflecting Pool” is the final track on this release.  By far the mellowest of the three tracks, this piece offers something for reflection, as the title suggests.  It’s gentle as it washes over me; I feel like this is the perfect track for night-listening or for woodland hiking.

Overall, this is a great ambient piece that doesn’t stick too close to the drone genre.  It’s adventurous for such a mellow compilation of tracks.  Cinchel delivers once again!

About Nick H.

I'm a geek for music whether it be on vinyl, CD, 78 or whatever. My goal is to sniff out the greated music on Earth, specializing in the obscure. I make music myself as well, mostly ambient and sound collage (1 album out and a few remixes so far). I work full time as a professional mascot (it pays the pills) but will soon retire, i hope.
