ZiRP breaks the silence with new album, Circle Divine

When an album gets featured as a Daily Disc, a full review AND a Monthly Marker, you know it has to be something special. And the newest ZiRP album is just that. Something really special. With Circle Divine, ZiRP ‘invents’ a whole new genre: instrumental fusion folk-funk. and we at Celtcast absolutely love it.
Circle Divine is one of those rare albums that is earcatchingly good at the start and still gets better and better as you play it again and again and again and again. There is nothing more here I can say, that I didn’t already said in the review, so here is the link, enjoy the read, and enjoy listening to this amazing band.

Finishing the year with a masterpiece!

It took the new The Moon and the Nightspirits‘ record a while before it reached my CD player. Already released in June of this year it almost got lost in the stream of releases that were coming out this fall.
Almost but not quite, and that is a good thing because Aether swept me off my feet from the very first note I heard. This is the best album I’ve heard this year. and that with stiff competition from bands like M’anam, Jyoti Verhoeff, Priscilla Hernandez, Rachel Croft, Grumpy O sheep, Gói, and Irdorath. (what a musical year it has been.)
With Aether, The Moon and the Nightspirit wanted to add a certain ‘masculinity’ into their sound and the result is a gothic/medieval pagan folk CD that just blew me away. Now you could follow the link and have a read what I find so special about this new album – (and it would be highly appreciated by yours truly) – but really, if you love the music of Dead Can Dance, Shireen, Cranes, and of course The Moon and the Nightspirit themselves, don’t be bothered; just buy the record; put it on; get yourself a headphone; a chair; and vanish in this beautiful masterpiece.
