Landing "Oceanless" [label: strange attractors]

A totally awesome experimental shoegaze album. Slow and stretched out ambient textures that at times remind me of Low's droning wall-of-fuzz tracks. Instrumental (other than the occaisional whisper or distant voices). Excruciatingly beautiful moments strung all over the place. Play it till it breaks. -nari

1. "How Did You Feel?" (9:05)
solemn foreboding march with tripped out echoes and fuzzy guitar;
last 60 seconds eerie sine wave bending; blends into ->

2. "Harmonies" (3:53)
tranquil backdrop of shuffling drums, hopeful melody

3. "Rial Veed Fiir" (4:03)
MBV style fuzzscapes, present drumming, raindrop guits,
evocative of ocean waves

4. "Are You Gone To Vast Arc Hues?" (21:30)
requires patience but is totally worth it; the first
5 minutes are cooing electric guit ala Hendrix's "1983 a
merman .."; gets into full bloom around 8:00 with full
wall of echo, drums; dissolves into even more gorgeous
guit screams; amazing.

5. "Structure Vs. Chaos" (21:05)
a beautiful placid lull; layers of shimmering,
hanging chords breathe in and out; precious.

6. "..." (4:08)
forlorn guitar solo over ambience
