Peter Wright is a bit of a top geezer when it comes to arresting sounds and his whopping 'Snowblind' double CD on Install is somewhat of an essential beast. Hot on the heels of The Caretaker's ' Persistent Repetition Of Phrases' CD that was critically acclaimed (and we couldn't get enough of as every batch of discs to arrive would sell out super fast). This is another gem in the Install label's catalogue. For those not familiar with the New Zealand native's work then it's worth mentioning that he's gracefully been dropping underground bombs on Last Visible Dog, Blackest Rainbow, Digitalis, PseudoArcana, Apoplexy, Students Of Decay, aRCHIVE etc. so he's built a tidy array of quality releases. His sound probably falls into the drone category but he sprinkles the genre with his own magic and manages to take things way deep. Imagine if Stars Of The Lid had turned to the dark side of the force. His sounds resonate around your skull in a weird deja vu kind of way and take you to a place which is simultaneously familiar yet refreshingly new. It reminds me of a state of sleep deprivation where every object seems to vibrate with its own unique tone. All the frequencies that Wright hits are just perfect.. The bottom end is full and slightly menacing then the higher frequencies evolve in unexpected and gloriously lush ways. There's a distinct contrast of bleakness and impending euphoria. Comparisons to Godspeed and Windy & Carl are being spat around the office during what is a captivating and dramatic listening experience. Your ears need this.
