Drifts through industrial ruins. Guitar pluckings, field recordings, and eerier distant scrapings w/ feedback constructed into monolithic sonic landscapes with a brilliant sense of tension. Gloomy, bleak, heavy, and beautiful. Reminds me a lot of the sounds GYBE!'s the dead flag blues, without the pretention or posturing. Quality musicianship. Play this drive time, and make sure to follow it up with the suicide prevention psa. For fans of Edward Gorey, Mogwai, Guitars. |
1-sprawling vast twangy guitars w/ feedback and huge low end sound. mammoth guitar canyonscape. bonus orchestration midway through.
2-gloom dungeon w/ shrills and dying factory noises, shrills. satan!?
3-mysterious fingerplucked guitar journey w. field recording, builds in intensity. reminds me of the x-files.
4-12 minute long gutiar drone guitar drift into unsettling jan svankmajer style nightmares, that becomes a mellower wash w/ unnerving scraping sounds like you're going to be butchered.
5-more frozen and spacious soundscape, different the rest of the album, hits a real bliss point in the middle and eases to the end.
6-13 minutes drift through a space junkyard of dead floating astronauts, hung from a resonating beacon. tension climaxes in the middle and near the end, but ends real quiet.
