(Album Review) “Examinations” by Drekka

Sometimes doing a random review can lead to amazing things.  Such is the case as we got hooked up with listening to Bloomington, Indiana’s own Drekka as he released his album “Examinations” via Bandcamp on September 14th.  Allow Drekka to take you on a magical soundscape with this offering.

I absolutely love doing reviews that are full of mystery and wonder, and this was certainly no exception.  Drekka is an individual who studies sound so much that he continuously revisits, examines, and makes sound into his personal artform and study.  Drekka should be considered for an honorary PHD in Sound 101!

The beautiful thing about “Examinations” is that the songs relaxes your body while heightens your senses while experimenting with Middle Eastern and Asian sounds and melodies from the mountains of Kathmandu throughout this album.  Don’t let the length of some of the songs scare you, as some songs clock in anywhere between 10 and 14 minutes in length.  The songs are hypnotic and provide that ominous, yet magical soundscape that will heighten your senses while providing that zen that the listener might be yearning for.

Madness To Creation certainly recommends that you pick up “Examinations 2016-2018” by Drekka if you want something completely different and relaxing to listen to in the midst of chaos in this world.  Madness To Creation gives this a 9 out of 10 star rating.  Here is the track listing below.

  1.  Spring Rain, Indian Summer
  2.  Sense of Senses
  3.  Lissajous
  4.  We Negotiate Shadows Much Deeper Than Winter
  5.  Call to Prayer
  6.  Length of Night
  7.  Myrkramakt
