my own review: well its not a review but i would like to tell some, years before i was working as a dj in my university's radio. I had tons of US/UK psych prog, some krautrock, and some music from my country(=Turkey). One day by coincidence i found some songs of Swedish band Kebnekaise, i suprised a lot for the quality of the work, a few days later Arbete & Fritid..a few days later Mikeal Ramel.....they were all special because they light a fire on me to listen other countries music..On those days people were not lucky; if they had passions to listen other countries music (glad we have internet to listen and find almost whatever we want to..). With the raise of personal pages on Geocities(Yahoo), some vinyl traders made personal pages to swap vinyl rips. I was writting them for album requests, and as a return i was sending psych/prog/folky things from my country. One day i got some music from my one of trader friend; it was continuum. honestly i listened once and put it to my collection, it was not my cuppa. On recent days i found Autumn Grass album from my friend Cassandra. i listened the album and i like it a lot. its something folky/classical/avant something. and if you are in the right mood its one of the best in its type. that reminds me the first continuum album, and i listened it once more. it was great for me also. so i wanted to share these 2 albums today with you. hope you enjoy them too.
