The Gloaming

As I've mentioned before, we usually don't make a habit of posting purely instrumental music on MML, so when you find it here you can be sure we are fairly smitten with it. Today's featured musician is just such an example of why some of our ideas for content change on a daily and sometimes hourly basis. If you are in the middle of a few things around the nest, now might be a good time to silence the television and/or any other peripheral distraction in the room. For some reason I imagine a late evening, with one last cocktail or cigarette, just before sliding off into tomorrow as the perfect moment to take in any one of these beautiful tracks. The Gloaming is an experimental music project of Bristol, UK artist Benjamin Shillabeer. Incorporating various instruments and audio sources including (are you ready?) guitars, bass, keyboards, piano, rhodes, synths, drum kit, drum machine, percussion, melodica, glockenspiel, harmonica, vocals, loop-station, tape loops, computer programming & field recordings, Benjamin creates an organic sound that will please even the most reluctant ear. To listen and download a total of eight songs, visit both The Gloaming Myspace page as well as The Gloaming Secondary Myspace. All of the tracks are equally impressive and the audio quality is surprisingly good where myspace downloads are concerned. We highly recommend a complete listen to the following.
