In my last posterous I was happy to tell you that one of my favorite artists of all times, the wonderful Vincent Fugère aka Muhr, is back for good. In the past, Vincent didn’t only produce and release his own music, he was also the head of Apegenine Records and the fine netlabel Camomille. Sadly, Camomille closed down in 2009, mostly because Vincent needed to take a break from his musical activities to get some fresh air back into his head (something I understand all too well, as some of you might know). But after releasing his latest EP Her Fall Themes, Vincent was fresh enough again for some more action, and he used his newfound strength to revive Camomille.
The first release on this new-old label is a wonderful compilation of no less than 15 tracks called Hope’s Not Lost. Vincent was able to gather some of the finest names in symphonic netalbel-ism for this album, such as the great Ian Hawgood and Emanuele Erante as well as some new faces and names. Needless to say, he also contributed a new piece of his own music under his moniker of Muhr. I can honestly say I enjoy and love each and every single track of this amazing New Classical collection. And again, like with so many of Vincent’s own albums, I really love the cover art of “Hope’s Not Lost”. A really terrific work by misspaq. You can download this compilation of 320 kbps MP3s for free from Camomille’s website. And if you’d like to enjoy this fine music in full quality, there’s also a Bandcamp page which lets you name the price you are willing to pay for lossless formats such as FLAC and ALAC.
