Album Review
Adam Pearson
Reviewed 2011-09-25 
Space drone/ambient. Original collaboration was released as an EP in 2007, but now gets a full release, including the bonus tracks, 5-8, which were originally unavailable. The album is guitar effects/loops/sustain/distorto-centric. Aidan Baker (of Nadja) is a drone stallion and releases an album probably every other week. thisquietarmy is Eric Quach and an equally competent workhorse, who has worked with Scott Cortez (lovesliescrushing) in addition to Baker. Play with Tim Hecker, Comoros, and any other Rx/loop pedal abusers. Tracks blend into each other so watch out. No FCCs.

1. Subsonic reverb echo hum, sparkly keys, futuristic, layered, swirled cocktail. (8:43)
*2. Deep submarine relaxation tones with ringing, overdriven looped distortions. (6:40)
3. An extension of 2 with denser layers of spaced-out effects, distorted guitar comes in late, lending a dark metallic feel. (7:30)
*4. Celestial out-of-body acid trip with some hypnotic looping
distortion/effects. (7:01)
5. Distorted guitar on heavy delay, dense drugscape. (2:57)
6. Sustained guitar layers amass over low-end hum. (5:43)
7. Minimalist guitar saturated with delay and distortion up to an
intense, climactic space drone. (3:36)
8. Deep keys loop near a simple, two-chord lead. (4:17)
