When DemiAura keyboard player Jonathan Gabriel Jr. mailed us if we could review the first album by his new band, he mentioned that there was a possibility that vocals were added to the final mix. We replied that he really had to be sure it was done, before the recordings and he replied that the instrumental version would be the final one. Now, after releasing their debut album ‘DemiAura’, I’m curious if that was the right decision.
Bands that compose completely instrumental music are to be praised among the best. It is one of the hardest things to write and record an album, without it screaming for some kind of vocals. Most of the time the voice is what binds an album, it’s what tells the story you want it to tell. Luckily My Sleeping Karma can tell those stories without even one spoken word. Therefore ‘Moksha’ is a record to be praised.
