8/10 Phil Staff review, 20 April 2011
I could have sworn we'd had things in by Orphax before. The name rang a bell... but after a quick hunt we'd had bugger all from 'em. Which just goes to prove I don't know what we sell anymore... too many records coming out! Well Orphax is an Amsterdam based musician called Sietse Van Erve and he tends to do traverse the droney way of doing things. This is a 19 minute piece which is very atmospheric sounding. Throughout the music is a gorgeous stringy sounding sample which keeps your ears perked whilst strange noises do their best to suffocate it. They fail miserably and the two go hand in hand rather well. As far as drone music goes it's good as there's plenty going on which sound interesting and there's elements of ambience and even shoegazing in there as well. Maybe somewhere between early Coil stuff some Machinefabriek and possibly a bit of Yellow 6 in there at times. I like it!
