Comment: Darrell Burgan (the founder of Earth Mantra Netlabel!) is an artist who has been releasing music since 2010 and at the moment his legacy is big enough to bring forth his genius. Indeed, the quality does not depend on the quantity with regard to the point of the previous sentence. The 8-track issue is influenced by reading poems and by one sentence being surfaced by a Japanese writer, Matsuo Basho. A good poem is one in which the form of the verse and the joining of its parts seem light as a shallow river flowing over its sandy bed. Undoubtedly the outing is elemental in its calm drift yet on the other side it seems to be so well self-organised and natural and cloudlessly dreamy that the listener can just forget all around him/her. It is a sort of cerebral massage, a sort of ideal soundscape, a sort of intangible matter you could only imagine before you had not listened to it. At times the sonic glass resonates due murky dark ambient progressions (at Abendwind, for example), and more bold synthesiser, feedback driven and sonic effects backed appearances here and there (Essential Oil, and Tall Grass Their Monument, for example). Thanks to the opposite facets and subsequent tension the outing will be even more perfect. I used to have problems with New Age music considering cheesy and flimsy seeds coming to the mix yet Shallow River Flowing can be considered a perfect, seamless form of it. Additionally I am wondering if anyone could create more emotive music nonetheless its predominantly minimal nature. It is like the materialisation of Lao Tzu's thoughts full of profundity and space at the same time. Philosophy and music will come into one. The outstanding issue is a part of the discography of Emergent World.
