French purveyors of fine ambient improvisations, Sylvain Beorchia and Emmanuel Célestin hosted a radio show in Le Mans where they created 2tokiislands. They distributed a couple of privately published discs but never got properly released until Plague contacted them in 2007 (after having bought a 99 cent promo CDR on ebay). Although the band already ceased to exist, Ambient Improvisations - 18.04.04 (Plague009) was released in 2008 and is now available as a free download in its raw and un-edited form. Those who prefer a hardcopy can get it in the Plague shop. Only a few copies left.
Many thanks to Fré for that rip !
Limited deluxe edition featuring a smartly silkscreened disc housed in a black c-shell case + sticker + a bag of black Ceylon tea (each with a hand-numbered black label), all packed in a square black, wax-sealed, envelope.
"Black Tourmaline" was recorded during the Easter week of 2007 and is the result of sound researches and experiments with the electric guitar. Only few non-guitar sounds (electronics & voices) were added. It's a oneness... monolithic, darker and unfriendlier than its predecessor "The River Disappeared Sidewards". Despite the black nature of this recording - sticky and nasty like tar - it is still very contemplative and truly mesmerising. A 2008 ambient Grand Cru !
