Gish is a mysterious entity with significant pedigree in the underground experimental music scene. S/He (?) has had a number of releases on Dirty Demos and Krayon and now it's Dead Pilot who have taken up the mantle on 'Billion'. This one is a serious exercise in minimalist sound manipulation and sustained drones. The album begins with a cheeky percussive flurry that eventually gives way for a selection of ambient tones and glacial soundscapes. The majority of it sounds like manipulated guitar sustain but other treatments include subtle distortions, mild static hums and possibly treated vocals. It's a blissful affair unburdened by any consistent noise element and very much consistent with Eno's vision of a ambient drone utopia. Peaceful stuff. Oh, it's really long and it comes in a brown paper package all tied up with string, which incidentally are two of my favorite things.
