Urze de Lume (Portugal)
"As Árvores Estão Secas e Não Têm Folhas" Digipak CD 2018, Equilibrium Music
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ new : recommended ] : [ add to cart ]
Second and final chapter of their ode to Autumn. Bonds to both Nature and tradition are at the heart of the band's rendition of Dark Folk, and both skillfully come together on this acoustic introspective incursion into life's ever-looming solitude.

"...The trees have grown dry and bare, as have I..."

On their third album, Urze de Lume turn inwards for a soothing journey which illustrates not only departure, but also homecoming, meticulously setting to music memories imbued with both nostalgia and longing.

Inspired by Iberian traditions, their music aims to celebrate the roots which identify a people and bind them to their land.

"As Árvores Estão Secas e Não Têm Folhas" is the second and final chapter of Urze de Lume's ode to Autumn, in a follow-up to the acclaimed "Vozes Na Neblina" EP released in early 2017.

Although predominantly focused on guitar-based pieces, the leading role in "As Árvores..." is often taken over by the rebec, a bowed stringed instrument whose fiddle-like timbre brings forth an archaic, medieval-like, character to the album's instrumental canvas, which further expands on occasion to include wind instruments, discreet percussions and bagpipes. The intentionally minimalist aesthetics seem to match the beauty of bare trees to perfection, yet Urze de Lume's use of multiple field recordings allows the hues of autumn to embed deeper into the music. Now and then, they turn also to narrated poetry to lead us further into the recesses of remembrance, urging the embrace of loss as one welcomes back nighttime, the cold, and a sense of void for times bygone that the arrival of Autumn inevitably brings about. This is the season where days start to run increasingly shorter and quieter, much like the lives of those to whom Urze de Lume dedicates this solemn work.

Bonds to both Nature and tradition are at the heart of the band's rendition of Dark Folk, and both skillfully come together on this acoustic introspective incursion into life's ever-looming solitude.

"As Árvores..." is appropriately robed in an Autumn-tinged matte-varnished Digipak.

Urze de Lume (Portugal)
"Vozes na Neblina" Digifile CDEP 2017, Equilibrium Music
6.00EUR • approx. 8.7USD [ add to cart ]
On this new EP Urze de Lume take a more quiet stance to their Dark Folk, in contemplation of the beauty of Fall. Two new instrumental tracks, as well as two preludes narrated by their friends and brothers-in-arms Àrnica. Lim. 300 copies.

Urze de Lume represent a homage to the past.

Inspired by Iberian traditions, their music aims to celebrate the roots which identify a people and bind them to their land.

Founded in 2009, the band has recently become the Portuguese flagship for a new wave of like-minded projects currently spreading across Europe, who have embraced ancient ways and spirituality as both a starting point and a beacon for their incursions into Folk music.

Iberian ethnic instruments such as bagpipes, war drums, horns and various ancient stringed instruments provide the roots that burrow deep into the rich Lusitanian soil to nourish Urze de Lume's powerful and unique sound, whose belligerent tone ignites the audiences at the band's live performances.

"Vozes na Neblina", however, finds Urze de Lume taking a more quiet stance, in contemplation of the beauty of Fall. Its faded colours and a moist morning mist bring forth the memory of a transient moment, when the warmth of the Sun retires to give way to pitchblack night-time.

Just before soft percussion, along with the gentle shimmer of stringed instrumentation or the mesmerizing hum of a distant horn, take hold, Urze de Lume stir the embers of the crackling fireplace which welcomes us back to the comfort of our own inner sanctum. The time has come to cherish Autumn's melancholy farewell, as we recall all other departures that we came to face throughout our lives.

"Vozes na Neblina" brings two new instrumental tracks by Urze de Lume, as well as two preludes narrated by their friends and brothers-in-arms Àrnica.

Regular edition, lim. 300 handnumbered copies.
Semi-transparent CD disc housed in silver-printed black carton stock.
