Album Review
Reviewed 2013-10-24 
Mysterious soundtrack to a hypothetical art film about a guy whose life is crumbling around him, existing in the mind of creator Jason Zumpano (known for work with Zumpano, loscil, Destroyer). Lots of synth work going on here, along with guest cello, double bass, tuba, violin, sax. Just as atmospheric and moody as you'd expect from an X soundtrack; cool stuff, and definitely worthy of the "experimental" classification.

*1 (4:07) Warbling, wandering, spacey synths backed up by strings
2 (1:18) Percussion, low rumbling drone+tuba, a constant watery rustle
3 (2:25) Repetitive cymbals, tambourine, a low constant chiming; bright synths, low brass over final third.
4 (2:56) Plaintive droning synths and strings
5 (1:09) See 2
6 (5:27) Constant high fem choral "ahh," jazzy noisy touches around it
7 (1:23) A bucket being hit with a drumstick over a repeated noir sax/brass riff
8 (0:53) See 2
*9 (3:22) Hot water pipe drone, bagpipe synths, more modern classical music than noise
*10 (3:03) Dark, sparse, discordant piano with sporadic violent string sections
11 (3:40) Low strings and tuba riff around a haunting drone. 5 sec pause at 2:10
12 (1:26) See 2, with a 5 second burst of choral fem vox at end
*13 (5:07) Layers of droning instruments and voice, pretty stuff
