Following the release of his acclaimed collection of electronic and sample-based music, Emmettronica, in 2013, Bloody Marvels is a collection of largely instrumental pieces performed on acoustic instruments.
Emmett is a master of guitar as well as keyboards, and plays a bewildering variety of both stringed, keyed, struck and blown instruments to create this beguiling, atmospheric and haunting album. Strong on melody and mood, with occasional moments of both playfulness and terror, these fourteen songs – together with two bonus tracks – will transport the listener into Emmett’s musical realm, leaving a long-lasting impression of its beauty in the heart and the mind.
