In 1996, art-design maestro Russell Mills assembled the tremendously impressive Undark collective – both Brian and Roger Eno, David Sylvian, Bill Laswell, the Edge, Kevin Shields, Robin Guthrie, Hywel Davies, etc. – for an LP of guitar-damaged beatscapes and textured invisible-soundtracks. Strange Familiar is an astonishing work, ebbing and flowing better than any other album in recent memory. Mills and his crew don't always wait for the next track marker to introduce a new theme, resulting in a work that pays huge dividends over the course of a full listen.

(For example, Michael Brook's infinite guitar ceases long before the end of his showcase track "Stone's Egg," leaving Mills more than ten minutes to deconstruct a groove that begins with a cavernous bassline and warped percussion but ends up with little more than a few solitary bells.) This fusion of electronic and organic, future and past, begs for a new term to describe it; perhaps the time has come for the next step on from Hassell/Eno's Fourth World of the '80s, a Fifth World of ethno-electronic sound. This is definitely an album of such excellence to be able to trumpet a new revolution in sound.

Russell Mills' Pearl & Umbra fuses world music, electronic, and rock influences into intense, predominantly instrumental songs like the droning, percussive "Swallow Crystals," the tribal, passionate "Canyon: Split Asunder," and the jazzy, brass-driven "All Wise Fly (Pneuma)." The album also features contributions from like-minded musicians such as Bill Laswell, Harold Budd, Roger Eno, Paul Schutze, Robin Guthrie, and Brian Eno. David Sylvian's world-weary vocals add to the delicate unease of "Rooms of Sixteen Shimmers," while Susan Deyhim's warm, passionate vocals add another layer of mystery to "Heaven Dips," and Clodagh Simond's brogue adds a Celtic tinge to the cover of Syd Barrett's "Golden Hair." "Causes, Causes, Causes" and "Cage of Air" pit winding, wailing guitars against pummeling polyrhythms and pulsing basslines. Every bit as intricate and engaging as Undark, Pearl & Umbra adds warmth and resonance to Mills' musical chiaroscuro.
The Sylvian track is amazing!!! In fact the whole album is a masterpiece. A lot of great artists involved like Brian Eno, Michael Brook, Robin Guthrie, Harold Budd, Bill Laswell, Peter Gabriel etc…..
