Bells Of Burford - Trembling Bells - The Sovereign Self

But when I came back to this album almost a year later, it was a whole different story! Some of the greatest fresh retro psychedelia with a bit of that Jex Thoth aftertaste.

What was I thinking?! Carpet Cocoon by Iceblink. A "bedroom new age" album by multi-instrumentalist Lynn Avery; sweetly melancholic, intimate, and highly textural music. A wild, psychedelic journey through the music of Argentina, where the musical styles are familiar, but everything feels wavy and lysergic. Calming Signals by Rich Ruth. Beatific electroacoustic music where saxophone, strings, synth, and bass pool out to create calm streams of sound. Thoughtful ambient from Seattle has elements of drone, experimental, and healing sounds in its musical explorations.

But such reservations are swiftly assuaged within The Sovereign Self 's opening bars, which usher in 'Tween The Womb And The Tomb', a primal blues-pop madrigal on a rollicking, epic scale.

The rest of the album follows suit, and becomes more intoxicating with each listen — from kaleidoscopic mantra 'O, Where Is Saint George' which echoes Trembling Bells' sonic ally, Mike Heron of the Incredible String Band , to hallucinatory, organ-spiralling psych-dirge 'Bells Of Burford', whose prog-rock interludes are incendiary, and joyous.

Not the usual collection of influences that go towards shaping an album, but then Trembling Bells are not your usual sort of band.

I came out of a relationship and was consoling myself creatively and emotionally by reading a lot of Greek tragedy. The language is incredible. I immersed myself in that and then cherry-picked lines from it, distorting and personalising them. Musically, this album has been a lot more collaborative and democratic and as a result a lot of our other influences have come through - psychedelia, earlys prog and rock.

I find it physically and emotionally draining to sing these songs, because they are quite intense you have to put so much into them. They are a band poised between mappa mundi and SatNav. The range of cultural and counter-cultural interest from the band is apparent on the front cover of The Sovereign Self - a series of twenty portraits painted by Lavinia Blackwall: an eclectic gallery of genius from Emily Dickinson to Aeschylus; Lou Reed to Ovid.

Indeed, on "Bells of Burford" the multiplicity of sounds and changes in orientation are challenging but consistently engaging. Spooky, serrated-edge ballads and disturbing tales of breakdown relationship and psychological are both unsettling and enthralling. Header Left Sections. Enter your keywords.

    Trembling Bells sit close to the heart of Glasgow's experimental arts scene, a group whose incisions upon the flesh of the traditional folk song canon have produced some stunning results in their own right. New album 'The Sovereign Self' continues this journey.
