It's time for another eclectic (and free) MP3 selection, and tonight's will not disappoint. Germany's Denovali Records bills itself as an "independent label for experimental, ambient, darkjazz, jazz, drone, electronica, doom, indie etc." Their Nordic Lake Sounds Volume I certainly meets that description. Quite frankly, there's a breadth of sound here that one rarely encounters within the scope of a single label. My FLFs (First-Listen Favorites) would have to be Fromme Lugen by Sankt Otten, Les Fragments de la Nuit's Entre Ciel et Fer, and Nylonfrom Her Name Is Calla. In playing through this sampler nonstop, one hears the influence of everything from classical piano to progressive rock, with a healthy dose of electronica used both as thematic statement and effect. (Yes, there's a good chunk of metal involved, too.) Give this one a listen, and be sure to wander through their site; there are 20 or so other free downloads currently available.
