Album Review

Reviewed 2016-11-30 
Pretty, gentle, pastoral, lo-fi instrumental post-rock/slowcore/ambient-drone from Lakewood, Ohio. All recorded by one person. Minimal and repetitive, with lots of interlocking guitars. Really nice driving music, especially for highways or places with trees. RIYL early Early Day Miners, Explosions in the Sky when they’re being quiet, Hood, Bedhead. No words, no FCCs. Favorites: 2, 4, 6.

1. (1:18)—Quick intro. Mid-tempo, bright, upbeat.
2. *(6:11)—Mid-tempo, a little jazzy. Several ringing guitar parts. Nice, warm keyboards.
3. (6:02)—Lo-fi, ominous guitar drone coated with tape hiss.
4. *(9:05)—Mid-tempo. Similar to track 2—dreamy, hypnotic, lush, mellow guitars. Long, ghostly, ambient middle section.
5. (7:57)—Furnace noise. Windy drone and subtle bass. Ends with nice tinny, watery guitar.
6. *(10:29)—Starts as mid-tempo, melodic, soft post-rock. Becomes a long passage of pastoral drone that fades out gradually. Guitars return for a minimal, pretty finish.
7. (16:23)—Starts with mid-tempo, jazzy drums, minimal guitar. A little propulsive, but not aggressive. Bright keyboard. Drifts along. Switches to keyboard drone at 10 minutes.
