Hiss Tracts
Shortwave Nights

Cacophonous layers of fuzz, guitar, cello, synth and samples

FCC: 4

****1. (8:07) Low growly noisy snarls (16mm projector?) with bowed cello droning on top of it. Guitar playing some quiet Western flare. Gentle feedback fuzz. Eventually noise fades and plaintive cello and guitar come to the fore. Beautiful
*2. (3:57) Dubby wobbling, then piano playing single chord quickly
***3. (5:41) Bouncy synth waves, intense drone Flattens out a little but still fuzzy oscillator drone, weird noise sequencer fade out the last minute
4. FCC SHIT FUCKING (1:16) Harmonica, banter
5. (3:36) Low bold drone, rumbley slowly oscillating
*6. (5:44) Faint tap dancing, cello, menacing drone, whirring incoming slowed down sparkly noise, sparse twangy guitar notes and some slide sparkles
7. (5:18) Sparse ringing prayer bowls, very quiet school bell ringing off to the side getting louder, growing synth expansion, layers of cello
8. (0:41) Ahhh-Weee Dictaphone sample
*9. (7:18) Creepy non-melodies jangling together, carnival, cartoon explosion, bag pipes, triangle
**10. (2:53) Distorted bull horn commands, pretty synth drone
