amiina ~ Fantomas

I cannot stop listening to this record. 

amiina is a quintet from Reykjavic, Iceland, that traffics in lush, warm minimalist music. Classical instruments and haunting, spare melodies with quiet percussion only sometimes, this is music to send you down the rabbit hole of your mind. 

Fantomas is the score the band developed and recorded for a screening of a film serial from Louis Feuillade from 1913Like so many of the best scores, this stands entirely on its own and adds a depth to amiina's catalog. This is great stuff.
