8/10 Brian Staff review, 25 November 2010
I'll take a step back into calmer pastures now. The ever-reliable Infraction have sent us a pile of new releases. Well, two. And because i've pulled a ligament in my leg and am chair-bound, i'm review king for the day. I'm gonna try beat my record and review anything that isn't nailed down in the office. But first I'll try Capricornus. What is left to be said about this kind of ambiance? This is a minimal one that is quietly sobbing, begging & pleading to be taken home tonight & placed on the CD player as I indulge in my Redbush tea & morphine ritual last thing at night. I was joking about the Redbush tea. On 'Halation', mildly fluctuating drone waves gently mingle & fluctuate, encouraging deep listening & a zen-like calm. After the 21 minutes of 'Cubes in Stereo' have elapsed, you will surely be in a right floppy soporific state and all the better for it. Further immersive tonal experimentation on the similarly lengthy 'Line' has Hiroshi Tanaka laying a relatively distant sounding road of drone whilst somber sustained notes slowly interject & fade. As with the majority of Infraction releases, this is private-time music for eking out the days stresses & psychological tumbles & then, quietly, disposing of them leaving barely a trace of concern. Only peace.
