|Week Ending:||12 Aug||5 Aug|
Soft drone. Way slowed down and heavily processed recordings of Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring. Thick but placid low end, wisps of melody disappearing upward, a very gradual pulsing. The low-lit, almost unearthly feel reminds me a lot of Stars of the Lid’s Avec Laudenum, which is a huge compliment. It evokes no-space in the way that a James Turrell piece might, if Turrell worked only in near darkness. Absorbing in its neutrality. Also RIYL Kyle Bobby Dunn, Adam Pacione. Favorites: 1, 4. No words, no FCCs.|
1. *(8:44)—Beauty at low-level awareness. It’s 2 a.m. and everything is blanketed in barely there, slowly shifting deep blue light, and you don’t know where it’s coming from.
2. (4:38)—A little domestic white noise, the sound processing more clearly warped.
3. (6:18)—In between tracks 1 and 2.
4. *(9:00)—Drone just above the threshold of consciousness. Foggy, deep.
5. (8:12)—Shadowy, not dark ambient but spectral and a little ominous. Last thirty seconds are silent.
