tu m' - monochromes vol. 1

just a quick post. been meaning to write about this release for a while. tu m' are a new name to me, but they are now definitely on my radar after 'monochromes vol. 1', which has become one of my favourite albums of the year. despite the strong techno focus of my contribution to mnml ssgs, this year, and especially in recent months, i've come back to ambient in a big big way. and 'monochromes' is exactly the kind of ambient i like: atmospheric, tranquil, contemplative...

not knowing too much about this italian duo, from looking at their website, it appears there is a strong visual component to their work, and this certainly adds something to the monochromes project. here is one excerpt:

[i cant get the video working, you can view it here.]

the video gives a pretty good representation of the album. not much more to say really. if interested, they've got some other videos and various mp3s on their website. anyway, this has been one of my finds for 2009, so i just wanted to share it.


  1. monochromes has been my little secret weapon for the last couple months. seriously lovely record. glad to see someone else recognizing it. .

  2. didn't know this one yet, thanks for sharing!

  3. I'll be sure to check this out, thanks. I've been in and out of ambient this year. The previous three years were very drone-music centric for me, so i needed a break from it, but I'm coming back to it these days. I've loved Leyland Kirby's "Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was". I have been discovering new names thanks to this ambient blog :

    I recommend it, if you havn't discovered it yet.


Say something constructive, bitte. Or if you're gonna take a swipe, at least sharpen your nails.
