Bosques de mi Mente is a Spanish contemporary classical composer, that has been creating minimalist piano pieces over the years.
Gargle is a duo from Japan that plays beautiful post-rock, ambient with modern classical influences. Absence is their first collaboration from these two artists, a delightful and pleasant record.
From the beginning, the goal was to create a completely collaborative album. The process started by sharing small ideas and song pieces, and soon everything started to gall into place, leading to the three of them working together as a true three-piece band in a gradual and natural way. The result is pure harmony, beauty and a wing for atmosphere, space and time.
Bosques De Mi Mente's pianos are like little paper ships floating over the water. String players from Tokyo College of Music, conducted by Jun gives the album a great symphonic dimension.
Fluttery Records invites all the modern classical, ambient and post-rock fans to listen to this album on their website.

HEARTS COOKS BRAIN: "Post-rock that synapses, leaves are falling, even more expressive images that are inherent in this album, waiting for their liberation. In 37 minutes they flit around then, wafting into the remotest corners, give shyly times, sometimes powerful, sometimes energetic. At the start, Silver Lining sounds like the tradition of Mono and Envy, are being developed post-rock prototype, first softly, then loudly and makes everything absolutely perfect."
MRU: "I was extremely impressed by these guys and I really did like the album. A genuinely unique act, they really fill their own little space at the rock table expertly. A solid 5/6 from me.Definitely worth a listen, just maybe, steer clear of the Seagal box set before hand!"
BEACH SLOTH: "Gespenst’s ‘The Bloodline’ has adrenaline rushing through its veins. This Malaysia band’s work has elements of Post-Rock and Classical brought together. Each song feels strong, in a literal power sense."
SLEAVE STATE: ""The Bloodline" is simply everything a post rock album should be and they do it in a interesting way. The tunes makes me want to run cinematic with open arms at sunset, or if I would prefer to hide under the bed sobbing spirit that nothing will ever work out. I just know that "The Bloodline" would be the right soundtrack for the two."
CALEIDOSCOOP: "The various parties and piano (electronic) strings provide not only with some regularity for the beautiful resting places, they do play the music with strong emotions. Thus they created a CD which includes both the hard and deep quiet moments that manages to hit. In all respects a very surprising album. Great class!"

Heinali collaborated with Maria Navrotskaya, Pleq, Merzbow, Aiode, Anton Baibakov, Orchestra Eclettica e Sincretista, Matt Finney. Collaboration with American poet Matt Finney became a separate heavier and darker sounding project. “Air” is his 6 song album: cinematic sad music, strings moving around the central piano motifs which are minimalistic. Power of light touches, the ambience, the echo and the sense.
