5 stars After two albums and a handful of punctual collaborations with others, Mushy is back with an exquisite collection of sensual droning pieces, shimmering cinematic soundscapes. In Faded Heart, Mushy demonstrates a great ability to renew her style without neglecting her original musical signature. Mushy's disparate interests for dark romance, the subliminal self and narcotic quiteness are geniously expressed in this idiosyncrasic musical dialogue between enchanting voices, minimal pastoralism and surreal astral synth moves. The opening theme directly announces the color and mood with a distinctive, intuitive stylistic register. It delivers a majestic tripped out cosmic dronescape sustained by ritualistic electro patterns and warmly languorous chants.The ensemble is cohesive with pieces which seem to flow in a night-like grace and sweetness. Probably the most emotionally orientated effort to date from the artist, continously intimate, sinuous and delicately psychedelic. Faded Heart is slightly dis-connected to the post-nuclear industrial music charisma of previous efforts in order to let the place to fundamental isolated mindscapes, expressing the vicissitude of shades and enlightenment. To say the least, this one contains more psych-prog elements than the two first (deeply rooted into experimental synthesized industrialism). A convincing musical transporter , an harmonic call to climb eternity...highly recommended for those who are into the most lyrical vein of the 70s italian electronic avant-gardists and those who dream on the allegorical flicks of Bartas, Parajanov...
