"Sunrise Ocean Bender do it again - A quite simply stunning release via the mystical Daniel Westerlund (aka E - Gone) GENIUS" Optical Sounds Fanzine (Dave Cardinal Fuzz)
“Advice to Hill Walkers”, the second full-length album by Swedish musical explorer E GONE, appeared just briefly on cassette in 2015 via the Zeon Lights label, garnering high praise from the small circle of tuned-in antennae that caught the transmission; one reviewer called it “the best E GONE release to date … a mix of traditional instruments with digital technology creating a rich blend of bubbling electronica and Eastern flavours.” Musically, it’s a stunner: An all-instrumental travelogue of an upward trek through a rugged landscape (as literal or metaphorical as you’d like), twelve station points mapped out across endlessly varied ethno-electro-psychedelic terrain. For this new CD edition, Sunrise Ocean Bender and Deep Water have combined resources to give the album the deluxe upgrade it deserves in both sound and packaging, with expanded (two additional tracks) and reworked (remixed and remastered) audio, all housed in a gorgeous Stumptown-printed cover with a foldout poster insert. 12 tracks.
“ … melds together various musical stylings including electronica, psych, post rock, oriental, dub, raga, ambient and folk to create a stunning cacophony of mesmerizing soundscapes. … The albums penultimate track entitled ‘Continue Ascent While Blindfolded’ reverberates on a jangling guitar strum before organ stabs, light clavichord progressions underscored with sampled whirls & bleeps reminiscent to that of a dastardly ‘horror film’ merry-go-round scarily crawls into play! … another wonderful collection of tracks created from the mind of Daniel Westerlund …” — Primal Music
“‘Advice to Hill Walkers’ is the usual excellent E GONE mix of traditional instruments with digital technology creating a rich blend of bubbling electronica and Eastern flavours that earnt the previous releases such critical praise, however this record is far more focused than before and Daniel has really found his groove … this is the best E GONE release to date.”—Thee Psychedelicatessen
“ … (a) conceptual piece of work from a stylistic genius who has a genuine feel for experimental music that eschews the more discordant, abrasive aspect that the word experimental sometimes portrays, instead focussing on the juxtaposition of ideas and instrumentation to achieve an opus that challenges whilst maintaining a level of beauty and charm”—Dayz of Purple & Orange
“ … ‘useful advice’, comes in the shape of 10 track titles adopting the darkly comedic tone, of early 70’s Public Information Films. … a series of resolutely short vignettes, it’s staged ascents and descents, splicing nimble footholds, skilfully traversing crevasses and death zones, E Gone triumphantly peaking.”—Chromaticism
