Recording: Cell Memory & Castle If

Artist: Cell Memory & Castle If

Song: unknown*

Recorded at The Tranzac ("Healing Power Festive Fest"), December 15, 2012.

Cell Memory & Castle If - unknown

Full review to follow. Healing Power is as much a vibe and a community spirit as it is a record label. Returning to their origins in the Tranzac, this night brought together friends in bands new and old for a holiday celebration at the opposite solstice to their picnics.

There's not a lot of info out there yet on Castle If, and I'm not entirely sure what the relationship is to Cell Memory — this was performed as a duo last night, so I don't know if those were their individual bandonyms. But this is a project to keep an eye on. The music I've checked out online is a bit more beat-driven, though it was commented that this set was performed without a drummer. At any rate, I really dug the darkness-inducing combo of guit and icy synths at play here.

You can check out some more photos of the night at the MFS Facebook page.

* This was played as one long suite, but I'm not sure if there's more than one song here. Please leave a comment if you know the title(s).
