For “Mesh”, the UK-band TUU consisted of Martin Franklin, Mykl O’Dempsey and Nick Parkin along two guest stars. The band were able to get their album released in the flow of tribal-infused and darker shaded string of releases that appeared on the Hearts of Space sublabel Fathom in the mid ‘90’s along Steve Roach, Robert Rich and Michael Stearns.
“Mesh” is a tribal/ethnic/psychedelic release firmly rooted in imaginary and exotic ambient music, featuring dronescapes, clay drum percussion, Asian flutes, layered keyboards along sound sof bowls and bells. Next to soft waves of textures, the “psycho-active” ethno-ambient music turns rhythmic on “Migration” while heading into the layered Singing Bowl structures onf “Four Pillars”.
All in all, “Mesh” (that would be the last full-length album by the band) proves to be an exploration in darker and more textural sounds. Along a smooth sense of drama and something physical yet sacred, its also offers contemplative, Tibetan-oriented moods..
