Goodbye Ivan – Anxiolytics (The Visit) (2011)

With Goodbye Ivan’s second album release, Intervals, Arnaud Sponar once again takes us on a journey: first across the Atlantic to a brave new metropolitan jungle (L’Ennui, East River, Brooklyn Bound) and redneck refuge (Hollidaysburg), then back around through the melancholic humor of the Eastern Bloc (Na proschanie, Shutka) and finally nestling in a cozy Icelandic fjord (Strokkur, Lónsfjörður) creating the rich feeling of movement found on this record. The eerie spaces in between on Anxiolytics (The Visit) and Left Wind give the feeling of being utterly lost amidst moments of discovery and great confidence. [Source]
