This is a nice surprise, a lovely drifting evocative record from a duo of guitar and turntable. Opener 'Breech on the Bowstring' is a lovely piece of ambient music, utilizing the guitar textures of Disco Inferno's 'DI Go Pop' experiments the track weathers as it's progressing gradually becoming immersed in sonic junk until it's unrecognizable from its earlier, prettier incarnation. The album continues in this vein - superb fizzing electronics mesh with shards of guitar and odd dislocated voice. The overall sonic feel is somewhere between Fennesz, Rothko, Belong and Strategy. The ghosts of My Bloody Valentine show up on several tracks in the heavily effected guitars. Another name that springs to mind is Arovane's superb 'Tides' record of a few years ago, this is more brittle, more metallic, less tuneful, but something in the flow of the thing has passed down through the years. The B side is more difficult, noisier and generally less appealing but by the final track the whole thing has dissipated into a hugely overdriven bulge of sound, as if there's a huge ball of fluff on the stylus.
