Strings Of Consciousness - Our Moon is Full
Awesome album from this international collective relased in 2007. Resembling an urban-noir take on Current 93's miserabilism (at its most psychedelic) with huge touches of Barry Adamson's "soundtracks for non-existent films" approach (no wonder it was released in Barry's label) and Talk Talk circa "Spirit of Eden", Strings bring the shit with harp, violin, guitar, double bass, vibraphones, electronics and processed trumpet (courtesy of Andy Diagram of Spaceheads/Two Pale Boys). With vocal contributions from JG Thirwell (Foetus), Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Scott McCloud (Girls against Boys), demented poet Black Sifichi and Adamson, you can't go wrong with this one.
