Surprising one this. I've heard of guitarist Ken Camden because I loved that kosmische-styled slab of vinyl that came in last year but now his complete Chicago-based brotherhood/collective have erm...Imploded onto the scene with this rather superb long player. I especially love the shifting, hazy, spangled s-s-s-sound of this record because it gets up, wanders around thoughtfully - perhaps even slightly restlessly - then barges, squeezes & shoves its way through the confines of any one of those pesky pigeonholes that you care to try cage it up in. Is it a dense drone record, an electric camp-fire free-folk travelogue or a fuzzy shoegaze opus? How about a deep zen-like psychedelic masterpiece or a tribalistic slab of dusty, muffled introversion? What does it all mean? Where are these folk coming from and what are they doing to my head at 11.30 pm? I'd not even particularly acknowledged what a complete powerhouse of a label Kranky has actually become 'till recently! Look at that massively tasty roster, both old & new! Now I insist you all add Implodes to your list of new favorite bands because this is a highly meditative, absorbing mind-trip full of shimmering textures, subtle cerebral distortion, discreet heart-melting chord progressions & miniature blurred melodies. 'Black Earth' is a rather splendid, lysergic, trippy record and I'm certainly not gonna namecheck any other artists because as a début it definitely stands alone to these ears, and hopefully yours! Very Kranky - taking from the past the hardiest tools to help shape the sonic future......
