(This is Andy Synn‘s review of the new album by the Spanish trio Neptunian Sun, which was released on June 13th of this year by South Coast Production.)
I don’t know about the rest of you, but this week so far has been one kick in the teeth after another.
Don’t get me wrong, lots of people have things worse than I do, but I’d be lying if I said the personal, professional, and musical setbacks of the last few day’s haven’t left me feeling bruised, bitter, and a little bit broken.
Different people, of course, respond to situations like this in different ways. Especially when it comes to their listening habits.
Some people like to listen to bright, uplifting music, stuff designed to help them rise above their circumstances and get them through the dark times.
But others prefer to embrace the darkness, to know it, to feel it, to experience and express it on an intimate level, in an explosion of visceral, cathartic release.
Which is why I’ve been listening to the latest album from Neptunian Sun a lot recently.
