Rhys Marsh 'Suspended In A Weightless Wind'

Rhys Marsh
‘Suspended In A Weightless Wind’

Released 30th September, 2013
Autumnsongs Records

1. Things Behind The Sun (Nick Drake) [4:31]
2. Helplessly Hoping (Crosby, Stills & Nash) [3:32]
3. Winter Night (Scott Walker) [2:52]
4. Moonchild (King Crimson) [4:27]
5. Mellowing Grey (Family) [3:59]

Performed, recorded & mixed by Rhys Marsh

“One of the most mercurial moments from Drake’s preciously limited catalogue, ’Things Behind The Sun’, as reworked by Marsh, is shimmered to the sweet allure of whispering strings, by way of accentuating and magnifying its bittersweet opine. Marsh adeptly hones in on that sense of quiet euphoria, stolen in faraway introspective detachment. Where Drake sours the sweetness in winter-lined reflection, Marsh wraps it warmly, investing a grounded majesty to the workbook; bathing and un-tethering the textures in a vividly-lush panoramic framing, that adds rather than detracts, one suspects, to Drake’s intended aural vision”
Mark Barton — Losing Today / The Sunday Experience (England)

“Richly-orchestrated dramatic pop”
Adresseavisen

“Melancholic and complex music, filled with unexpected chord progressions, rich layers of Mellotron and emotionally-loaded vocals”
Norway Rock Magazine

“It may challenge your idea of what progressive music should sound like in 2008″
Tarkus Magazine

“A beautiful auburn empire”
DotShop.se

“A dreamy slice of progressive pop that doesn’t sound quite like anything else we’ve heard in a long time”
Popsicle

“Inspiring and gorgeous, albeit heartbreaking, classical-countered sophisticated pop. This is a demurring 10 track collection that veers between heartbreak and euphoria, whilst touching base with all the boundaries between. A dizzying spectacle of spell-woven beauty…”
Losing Today

“Nick Drake is the obvious touchstone here, but Marsh doesn’t sound like a clone. Instead, like kindred spirit Eric Matthews, Marsh is an unabashed fan of the same shimmering folk/pop sound and wants to adapt to the 21st century. Based on this beautiful record, he’s succeeded handily”
The Big Takeover

“‘The Fragile Of Inbetween’ is sophisticated pop-prog at its best. It is a charming and great album, which in its field, stands like a monolith and supersedes most of what we have heard in the past years”
Merlin Prog
