[NooLtd18] Neozaïre – Apothecary Dream

Five tracks between trippy electronica, dreamy ambient, field-recordings and spaced-out guitars.

Music and archival scans D’Evoé, mastered by Manes at SALZ Mastering, design by Alex Ketzer.


»[…] it’s time to round things off with some nice introspective reverie from Cologne based Noorden. Spaced out slide guitars and ethereal ambience blues sum this one up. Perfect for any dream really—not just one about an apothecary.« Andy Gillham, Igloo Magazine

»Neozaïre […] takes a mortar and pestle to the likes of dream pop, space rock, new age, ambient and IDM. ›Colour Me Grey‹ characterizes a dark, rainy night you spend at your lavish home probably during a time when trip-hop and downtempo were making their rounds on the population’s stereos. Of course, you’re also slouched in your giant leather chair with a Marlboro Red lit and looking out the window you have to the city below you with raindrop streaks obscuring the view. The following four tracks are what ensues in your head after you shut your eyes unexpectedly, with the white noise of rain flooding your ears. These four tracks, ›Yellow Passion‹ especially, sound like the bleak existential fallout from a Pink Floyd album. Whether you took a visit to the apothecary before turning this album on is entirely up to you.« Cameron Hilliard, Sly Vinyl

»›Apothecary Dream‹ di Neozaïre è una bellissima tape realizzata dal giovane artista tedesco D’Evoé, che dipinge intriganti e raffinate atmosfere ambient di notevole portata. Dai sensuali sussulti di ›Colour Me Grey‹, alla struggente malinconia di ›Blue Bell Treasure‹, si traversano droni incisivi, ritmi ondeggianti, fields e strumenti dall’imprint esotico ed esplorativo: a tratti, con ›Departed, Gone and Lost‹ e ›Graves Creek Tab‹ sembra quasi di immergersi in un tipico ambiente tropicale d’antologia Cooperiana.« Loris Ligonzo, Electronique.it
