Ali Khan This album is sooo cool. Playfully crafted melodies, organic sound, and lively, buttery production ... which is why I'm hooked. The song "The Seed of the Areoi" stands out especially, for me. Favorite track: The Seed of the Areoi.

TheSlowMusicMovement Troubled by modern living & its money gods & armed only with an ambient agenda & recording studio, Wanderwelle search for ancient lore & unspoilt lands with this percussive, electronic, Pachamama sampling, musical incantation for Silent Season.

It's a wonderful listen start to finish. Just press play and sit back. No need to skip.

The Amsterdam-based duo Wanderwelle return to Silent Season with their second album. Gathering of the Ancient Spirits is inspired by the last years of the life of Paul Gauguin, which he spent on the islands of French Polynesia. The album tells the alternative history of his search for a land that is untouched by modern society and whose inhabitants were still dependent on the gifts of nature and connected to their ancestors. During his stay, the painter encounters forgotten rituals and the primordial beings which haunt the islands since the dawn of time. In 2018, it’s exactly 115 years ago that Paul Gauguin passed away. This album is an ode to one of the greatest artists that ever lived. - Wanderwelle
