Robert Diack: Lost Villages

Drummer Robert Diack creates a musical story about a collection of 9 communities in Southern Ontario on this moody album of textures and emotions. His team includes Patrick O’Reilly/g, Jacob Thompson/p and Brandon Davis/b, and they mix stark and ominous themes such as “Displace” with some synthesizing and heavy metal on “Bittered.” Eerie dark shadows elicit somber atmospheres on “Sap” with a collective sigh and deep breath gives a moment for pause on the reflective and spacious “Lacuna.” The mix of electronics with acoustic creates an attention getting milieu, almost forming the background for a movie to be made for the story behind the album. Getting attention by soft conversations.
