Album Review
Reviewed 2011-03-24
Pine Smoke Lodge is a free drone project based out of Portland, Maine that consists of Matt McKeever and Hillary Dickerson. (Together these two also run the excellent Existential Cloth cassette label). They have only been producing music under Pine Smoke Lodge for a few years, but they have already cranked out a good two dozen releases that have received much critical acclaim. This album consists of three vast sonic landscapes that are ominous and mysterious and evoke images of the dark winters of the far north.


1. A dark deep dungeon romp. Chilling and haunting with deep resonating drumbeats, echoey breezes, distant chines and a faint light at the end of the tunnel. Huge black brushstrokes on an all-white canvas. 150 square feet of Franz Klein abstract expressionist isolation.

2. Amplified 2001 Space Odyssey monoliths. Frostbitten limbs and frozen lakes that eventually thaw in a renaissance of light and color.

3. Deep and dense with echoed horns, rattles and skittering percussion. Perhaps dead men do tell stories?
