Calidonia County – The Ghosted YearsPosted: June 8, 2015
Calidonia Caounty is a solo music project of the Brooklyn based graphic designer Ian Ferguson. Carefully crafted over the span of two years and released on Moon Glyph label, The Ghosted Years takes some simple steps which always works: creating wonderful ambient music with guitars and synthesizers, not unlike Manuel Göttsching, Roy Montgomery, Dura, or many more before him. This is the sort of ambient music that doesn’t seek any “non-mainstream”, visionary explanations for their sound, it just seeks for “purity”, as the liner notes state. And the purity can be found here, the attempt at the reconciliation with nature and the surroundings wildlife, as exemplified by the picturesque artwork. It’s reverbed guitar bliss and do we need anything more? Recommended!
