Album Review
Reviewed 2013-10-19
Entrancing, hypnotic, dreamy electric guitar ruminations and synth; kind of ambient, kind of drony excepting the guitar. The kind of stuff that makes you more aware of your slowing heartbeat and warming skin temperature and less aware of everything else. I can never tell if the vocal sounds are human or synthesizers, hence the ?s. Warm and organic- will play just as well in the day as at night.

RIYL: LA Lungs, Hobo Cubes, Neil Young's Dead Man, Kevin Greenspon, Debacle Records

1 (5:36) Sparse drumbeat, supernatural falsetto humming?, touches of dusty acoustic guit. Tranquil
*2 (4:26) Loud, noisy electric guitar over pretty tape keys
3 (5:09) Guitar experiment over balmy, droning synths. A little dark
4 (4:30) Quiet fades in and out. Screeching guitar over warbling synths; intensifies and spacifies as it goes on
*5 (7:03) Slow, organesque synths, plucked bright guitar, effected wordless vox?. Sparse, quieter final 2 minutes
**6 (10:17) Sparkling, spacey noise, occasional low + high hums? near start, loud guitar takes over. Final ~1:50 is just of noise warbles, quiet synth drone
7 (2:19) Lo-fi guitar explorations and tape hiss
