It's an exquisite feeling, to taste the truth, to let it wrap you completely, to feel it's ecstatic warmth, to let it ripple through you, to let you feel life with every breath, as if day and night are colliding, and sparks exploding, and the sky turning deep red, and night falls like a blanket, and the wind is a soft whisper, and the dune grass are like blades, piercing blackness.
Ensemble Economique is Brian Pyle of Starving Weirdos and RV Painting. His solo project (hence the slightly ironic moniker) has previously released a CD on Digitalis in 2008 and two recent LP's on Amish and Not Not Fun Records. His music is highly narrative and cinematic mixing synth loops and electronic rhythms with epic organic structures. Crossing The Pass, By Torchlight is the culmination of Pyle's previous works presenting his most refined album so far.

I first heard this album with tea in my hand, the sun shining through the late winter day and fungus in my mind. It was the most content I'd felt with existence.
I have now just woken to the sound of the last track having fallen asleep with the album on repeat, it affected my dreams so beautifully. There's a tear in my eye, everything is fine. wideeyedtoad
