A beautiful work, transcending place and time. The lush instrumentation blends seamlessly into snippets of field recordings that add a muffled expanse to these emotive pieces. Another fantastic release from TRS.

ΛΗΤΩ is a work about traveling and lost childhood. Travel as a form of journal keeping, of anticipating, of remembering (and fictionalizing), and as a metaphor for this loss of childhood. The 5 tracks were composed during a period of two months following the loss of Leto, and cover a range of geographical locations to mark lived places and moments. In a way, the music on this release is related to a certain process of grieving, of revisiting the same sound and place many times in order to retain memories, and of remembering to come to terms with the waves and fulgurations this process brings. It is therefore a work that celebrates life more than anything else. Who is Leto and what is the story behind the release? It is left to the listener to decipher.
LETO was one of the Titanides (female Titans), a
bride of Zeus, and the mother of the twin gods
Apollon and Artemis. She was the goddess of motherhood,
and with her children, a protectress of the young.
Her name and iconography suggest she was also a
goddess of modesty and womanly demure.
Maria Papadomanolaki originally conceived Dalot in 2004 as an informal outlet for experimental composition. Papadomanolaki cites early post-rock, noise rock, abstract quitar-based music, drone, ambient, shoegaze and minimal electronica as equally important influences, however through Dalot she tries to sculpt a new territory where all these merge and form a delicate personal sonic language.
Dalot has collaborated and shared the stage with artists like Absent without leave, Bvdub, port-royal, Robert Henke, worriedaboutsatan, Mike Cadoo (Bitcrush, Gridlock), and Fil Ieropoulos (aka Filtig). She has released her music with labels such as n5MD, Sound in Silence, Fluid Audio, A Strangely Isolated Place, Dronarivm, Hibernate, Futuresequence, Sun Sea Sky, Hands, Fytini, Panospria, This Is It Forever, Radical Matters. Papadomanolaki has also composed music and sound design for films, dance performances and exhibitions and has performed across Europe and the US.

One of my top 3 favorite albums of the year. Its not very often and artist brand new to you can have such a profound impact on you. I can't even count how many times I've listened to this album since I stumbled upon it. Haunting, soothing, and deeply moving at the same time, this album truly relates the feeling of loosing a connection with someone or something you love, better than a lot of albums I've heard that have tried to.

If Disambiguation isn’t the gothic ambient album of the summer, it’s certainly the ideal soundtrack for sunbathing alone on a float at an abandoned community pool. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jul 12, 2018
