Zelienople - Sleeper Coach (Loose Thread) This is some gorgeous ambient, etheral/psychedelic sounds. This floats somewhere around the spaces where Spectrum, Spirtualized, Sianspheric, Low. LaBradford and Slowdive operate from.
This was recorded totally in analog and sound fucking brillaint at that. Proving there’s really no need for super high tech recordings. The only drawback is the vocalist sounds like he’s slurring Excellent chill-out music.

((((1))))) Slow, floating guitar glistenings that eventually form a nebula of waves flowing in and out with some Slowdive-like vocals.
(((((2))))) Nice hypnotic droney slowwwww indie. There’s a reoccurring riff that sounds EXACTLY like “Flowers” from Godflesh. Great minds think alike I guess.
((((3)))) Lots of guitar echo mixed with random bits of piano. Hushed tones and lyrics that are incredibly sparse. He sings/reads two lines and then nothing again for close to a minute. Trippy!
((((4))) Super minimal repetitive main guitar parts and fluctations of randoms notes.
((((5)))) Some harmonica mixed in with droning guitar waves.
(((((6))))) Sounds like this could be a soundtrack to some images of a slow moving blizzard going across Yukon Territory. Pretty close to the sounds that Windy & Carl got on “Antartica” but with a little bit of feedback mixed in here.
((((7)))) Slow bassy, number that’s probably their most structured “pop”-like song. It’s still rather unconvential stuff, though.
((((8)))) Super minimal with sparse noodlings and washes of ambience. and some strumming that got a rad echo sound.
(((((9))))) More Spectrum/Spacemen 3 sounding than anything. Beautiful droning 70’s style synth with lightly moving chord patterns.
Total blissout!
((((10)))) Minimal sort of uh, “twinkling” ambience with 1-2 guitar notes slow cycling over and many layers of glistening sound in the ethersphere.
