Sally Paradise - L'Ascension du Mont Shing (2010)

So yesterday for the first time I checked my AIM mail account and there was a letter in my inbox. The letter contained this album. I listened to it. After a few listens and careful consideration, I am posting this album here. The type of music Sally Paradise makes is difficult to label. If I had to give it a name it would be sleepgaze. The sound is reminiscent of those first few minutes before you go into a dream state. I didn't intend to evoke exclusively connotations of hypnagogue, because the music is certainly not by any means boring. You also get a sort of warm feeling when listening to this album, like someone is presiding over you. It's hard to explain. There is definitely a tinge of warmth to this album. While not the most enthralling music, I find that L'Ascension du Mont Shing earns a cozy place in my listening schedule during those times where I'm beat and in need of auditory solace. Check them out. Further their cause. Their myspace is at

    most of the music that gets emailed i wouldn't bother posting here. I'm all for helping artists distribute music freely, but not if it's garbage. I'll check this out later today.

  2. i agree. I thought this one was pretty good though. I think they definitely have potential.
