4 stars Saat or seed is a nice name for a folk-rock record. Emtidi only was not just a folkrock band, but a band playing progressive electronic as well. Both sides of the vinyl record start with a folkrock part, which is than followed by the progressive electronic part.

The folkrock sounds a bit like the Fairport Convention and Pentangle of the British folk movement. Emtidi's both and only groupmembers sing, which result in high pitch woman vocals and lower bass men vocals. In my opinion the woman vocals are far better then the men vocals, but which is the case in many groups - the men's vocals are somewhat more daring. And so, it's the men vocalist who has a vocalsolo! The folk-parts sounds very natural, even though they are somewhat more electronic than in the british folkscene.

The progressive electronic part of each side sounds much like Klaus Schulze, but there are more themes in the same time. Especially the electronic progression on the second side are really great. The first side however ends with some great vocal parts and is therefor also very good.

I do really like the combination of folk en progressive electronica. It's a combination not often heard. A very pleasant listening.
