Album Review
Alma Mahler
Reviewed 2008-05-16 
Instrumental rock/soundscape stuff from David Heumann (Arbouretum) and Nathan Bell (Lungfish). These lovely songs are primarily guitar duets, but also use drums, xylophone, bowed banjo, amplified kalimba, glockenspiel and others. Overall uneventful but pretty stuff. No FCCs.

1. * Cyclical progression, amplified guitars with xylophone & gentle drums
2. Beautiful, almost blues-y guitar work layered over acoustic ambient melody
3. Heavy guitar duet, more linear song structure that builds. Ends abruptly.
4. Guitar over dark atmospheric sounds. Open, spacious.
5. * Slow beginning, amplified guitar & drums enter and build through ~8:00, and then takes a lovely almost prog turn as it comes to an end.
6. ** Hypnotic and gorgeous. Beautiful instrumentation on this one.
7. Psychadelic rock lite - big guitar washes, background drums, lots of feedback noise. Watch out: song ends at 6:46....starts up again at 7:05
