Album Review
Rafe McBride
Reviewed 2008-12-20 
Dark, atmospheric, instrumental ambient music with layered guitars and synths (and no percussion) from Philadelphia. The dark layered sound is reminiscent of Godspeed You Black Emperor without the epic climaxes; The composition is more like Eno’s ambient stuff, slow and steady atmospherics with repeating themes. Start with starred tracks.
FCC Clean
1) 14 minutes – dark & atmospheric layered guitars & synths.
2) Repeating ambient synth theme that builds subtly to the end of the track
**3) 8 Minutes - Opens quiet and subtly builds into dark ambient soundscape.
4) Dark Menacing Sounds, looser composition than some of the other tracks.
5) Dark feedbacky guitar layered with ambient guitars/synths
