Critical Reaction to The Salt Garden 1
Brainwashed (Readers Poll Winner, Single of the Year, 2016)
“Another beautiful piece in a flawless catalog… The first installment of a new series of Fovea Hex EPs is reason enough for 2016 to exist”
A Closer Listen
“The group tends to fall off the radar every few years, only to resurface with a quiet vengeance… Fovea Hex makes music when it’s good and ready, and now is the time.”
Vital Weekly, Frans de Waard
“This music elevates to an entirely different atmosphere, not of this world. This is twenty-one minutes of heavenly bliss.”
“The Salt Garden I is a box of delicate mysteries with no resolutions, and it’s all the better for it. As brief as it is beautiful, it leaves the listener simultaneously reeling with the emotions it draws forth, and awaiting further installments to come.”
“The superlatives left to describe this unique chamber ensemble are fast running out… It is always an unmitigated pleasure to enter this house and warm oneself by its smoldering sod fire.”
