Album Review
Abra Jeffers
Reviewed 2019-12-09
A collection of minimalistic instrumental compositions which transport the listener beyond the confines of Earth. Both guitar and electric humming is featured frequently. The songs are significantly long. However, they appeal to an attentive audience willing to concentrate and be swept away on a spiritual journey. Overall a very soothing listen. Music created by Warren Ng, a former resident of San Francisco.

FCC Clean

1) * From The Field To The Factory (10:38). Glides through 6 minutes of tranquil, ethereal echoes and then suddenly it is interrupted by the staggering sound of incoming transmission. Brings to mind a spaceship soaring through the galaxy.

2) ** The Streets Were Paved With The Blood of Saints (7:00). Begins as a solemn and lonely whisper and then erupts into chaos. The sounds of grief and rage respectively.

3) And The Rain Swept In (6:47). Guitar sounds travel with a sense of urgency beneath a veil of radio cacophony.

4) * Circular Rains (9:40). Melancholic electric guitar notes ripple through the vastness of outer space. Captures the feeling of a hopeless desire.

5) We Are The Children of The Ahistorical (5:57). 6 minutes of intensifying buzzing. You can hear a beehive awakening and a swarm begin to take flight.

6) Memories of The Blind (17:00). Similar to track #1 but much longer. Gentle guitar plays beneath a rush of gentle winds. Be aware of the length of this track before playing it.

7) Poem of Struggle (3:43). The shortest, most manageable track for casual listeners. Dominated by thunderous vibrating and then is taken over by uncontrollable transmission.

8) Atonement (7:34). Dreamy slide guitar. Transports the listener to a sandy beach and is content to linger there while the sun sets.
