Haunting guitar drones, volume swells, and distortion washes bleed between dense songs. Listen at 6:45 am when the sun refuses to rise until 7:15; shreds of existing light sneak through your curtain, preparing you for dawn aside intense, endless drones. Distinct layers of fuzz provide texture for the release, although the effects aren't so overwhelming that you drown. Rather, it is the sound itself, and the sequencing of the songs, the perception of never-ending soundscapes that will hold you hostage. The imprint of this release remains well after the cassette stops.
Highly recommended. Currently available at all Reckless Records stores; if your favorite Reckless store doesn't have it, Permanent Records should. Plustapes, second pressing (100).
Intense, surreal, remote, dynamic. Come along with us as we chronicle the adventures of the soul through psychedelic, drone, noise, experimental, pop music based around Chicago bands in particular and local bands everywhere.
