This Is Ethmo: 'World Peace Isn't Just A Dream' and 'People of the World'

A very welcome double-dose of genre-colliding musical meditations

Mark Christopher Lee's This Is Ethmo return to deliver a very welcome double-dose of genre colliding musical meditations, in the form of 'World Peace Isn't Just A Dream' and 'People of the World'.

Eighteen months ago This Is Ethmo crash landed on Earth and onto The New Beatmaker's 'Your Beats' section, with their very enjoyable 'Die Fledermauz' project.  I had this to say at the time:

'There is a myriad of styles and a sense of fun throughout this EP.  I strongly advise you to check it out: Dance-meets-death metal-meets-Middle Eastern-meets-mad-funky funkiness. Bravo!'


'World Peace Isn't Just A Dream' is another wonderful mix of styles.  However, this is not a 100 mph chopping and changing of musical forms.  Instead, this is a grooving mid-tempo bounce through the Himalaya or Tibet; aided by a simple but effective drum loop and some wonderful distorted guitars.  Superb.

'People of the World' is a more high speed journey across the world, merging heavy rock riffs that flirt with Middle Eastern melodies, techno drums, African vocal snatches and a helping of strings. 




As if all that wasn't enough, Mark's The Pocket Gods have just released their latest full-length, 'In Search of the Divine', an album full of prog / Indie goodness.

A full review of 'In Search of the Divine' will be coming to The New Beatmaker over the coming weeks.  In the meantime enjoy two tracks from the album below and check out this superb review of the album by Unwashed Territories.
