Album Review
John West
Reviewed 2014-06-25
experimental album from the UK in two long tracks. second half is much more ambient/interesting. two tracks linked by some outer space keys and large, broken-vehicle ambience. recommended if you like tim hecker, biosphere.
1. starts with lone analog synth stretching out and panning/zooming around your head, until it starts sounding like a broken helicopter rotor. cuts out at 3:15. electric guitar (?) and gusty whooshes pick up after silence. higher tones start to blast and screech at halfway mark. gets more mellow again at 10:50 with spacey keys.
***2. starts with a two wavering organ tones, which the same spacey keys begin to skitter over. static and old cable/submarine sounds build from below. everything pitches up around 5:00. organs transform to analog synth tones so slowly you hardly notice. lose synths around 11:00 to weird aquatic skittering. much less busy than 1.
