Album Reviews
Mr. Tumnus
Reviewed 2017-01-21 
Drone/ambient. Deep, rich drone coming out of Oakland. Great combination of organic instruments and synth, with lots of organ and trombone. The use of trombone in the second half of track #1 is particularly striking...a horn echoing across a vast landscape. This is great stuff.

Recommended: both. No FCCs.

1) “Blessing & Embodiment” (10:48): Harsh, sort of crackling guitar. Gradually increases in richness...voices in the distance, blown on the wind. Becomes a blown-out barren landscape, big horns.
2) “Desire & Dissolution” (10:58): Deep refrigerator drone, breathtaking in intensity. Quavers up and down. Becomes harsher in the second half, like some kind of storm is brewing. Noise dissolves into something more serene.

Sunken Cathedral // Subtle Body

A dreamy, constantly and smoothly evolving, sometimes tense, effort from Sunken Cathedral, the solo project of Bay Area musician Ryan Jobes. Encircling guitar with evolving pads, with curveballs like trombones and pure noise dropped in. No discernable vocals no FCC.

1) (10:48)* Panning guitars with a low droning bass and evolving pads, song takes on a more vacant feeling halfway through, but the quiet is broken by horns and rumbling effects. 2) (10:58) Slow fade in for about 0:15, monophonic and somewhat dissonant tones, about halfway through a compressed wall of noise and yelling hides hides under a high ring, then retreats Slow Proteo
