Plastic Violins Of Darkness - Plastic Violins Of Darkness (2013)
The debut album from this German one-man band.
The man who is the band is Marc-Andre Mahn and he does the guitars and programming.
I reviewed his second album, the 2014 opus Spiral exactly five years ago to this day and got the debut album too as I liked that album. Read my review here.
And those two albums are the only albums Marc-Andre released.
The music on this album is a mix of space rock and psych rock. It is instrumental throughout this one hour.
The music is dominated by guitars. Mostly half-acoustic guitars. In the back of the sound, you get computer generated bass and drums. That and some cosmic sounding synths.
This simple form of music is actually very effective. There is no massive complicated details here. It is just like a darker form of Pink Floyd. Indeed, Pink Floyd is a very good reference here.
This one hour does not offers up some fantastic excitements. But it works.
This is indeed a good album and it can be downloaded from the link in this review.
