4 stars Marslydhode is a dark, earthy landscape with intermittent sounds of toy piano, electronic beats, and acoustic percussion. The ambience of this one track sounds like a slowly developing field recording of nature progressive from day to night, in no special location in particular. Frogs, birds, crickets and various other insects can be heard infesting the landscape as the distant klang and drone of far-off bells and wind-chimes can be heard. Occasional electronic beats, also far in the distance, can be heard. The beats don't add too much to the landscape except to add a recurring theme of no importance or as an addition of random texture. Organic metallic resonances of pans or metal buckets agitate the soundscape, which are accompanied by the soft sounds of a human's breath. The atmosphere is very dark, damp and suffocating, almost as if this could be the soundtrack to be buried alive under a barn in the woods.

It's been a while since I've heard some truly captivating field recording based electronic music, and this really quenches my thirst for such an album. This whole album is much like an improved and more interesting version of Bass Communion's "Ghosts" album, so anyone a fan of that album should take notice of Lydhode's Marslydhode.
