The impressive set of musicians connected to project A Winged Victory For The Sullen grows; its founders Adam Wiltzie of Stars Of The Lid and Dustin O’Halloran invited cello princess Hildur Guðnadóttir (who, in the meantime, releases another collaboration with Hauschka) who provides their eponymous debut with her opiate cello stroking. As if it wasn’t enough, Peter Broderick widens the strings’ spectrum with his violin. Among other pieces on the forthcoming album (Erased Tapes) this personnel has created the sacred sound of this freshly published composition Requiem For The Static King Part One. In comparison to earlier reviewed Steep Hills Of Vicodin Tears Requiem is shorter, deeper and more robust. From the perspective of song’s structure it’s less layered and the calm euphoria of Steep Hills is much more tranquil with crossing borders of grief. Certainly, the idea of requiem indicates its implicit mournful melancholy with a bit of eulogy-flavoured ingenuity. Dedicated to Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse, the first part of Requiem For The Static King is their another sensible and touching step into emotional contemporary classical area.
