Album Review
Alma Mahler
Reviewed 2008-04-11 
Growing makes "pretty soundscapes, drowning but still sparking" (summed up perfectly by Yr Imaginary Friend). Lots of oscillating loops with minimalist drone textures that are bright and hypnotic. Each of the four tracks is great - and the range will please drone, electronica and indie fans alike. Lovely stuff.

1) Pulsating guitar & hollow, oscillating loops swell into a loud, bright, & semi-melodic soundscape by end of track.
2) Quivering electronic blips over a treated but simple guitar melody --> most structured and accessible track.
3) Starts out as a slowed down, very glitchy trance tune, dark pulsating beat enters around 3:30.
4) Faint melody plays behind - and occasionally breaks through - layers of undulating warm drone.
