8/10 Brian Staff review, 11 August 2011
Just spent 20 minutes writing a review for this then the computer crashed and wiped it. Basically, it's hard enough trying to review "drone" records as it is without computers being utter twats for no good reason. So I'm in a bad mood now. Jason Corder here shifts from atmosphere drenched sound-art pieces with shimmering neoclassical overtones to intimate, warm sad-folk plucking poorly concealing the dark, foreboding low-end drone monster of brooding proportions threatening to eventually engulf all that is lilting and calm. There's a lot going on throughout this Colorado lake cabin recording. He seemingly just took his entire smorgasbord of instrumentation with him and barricaded himself in. I really love the acoustic guitar-led pieces here, the way he compromises these reflective forays by letting deep cello drones and ricocheting frequencies almost overpower the tune at times really makes for some intense, rewarding listening. 'Daydream Tarnation' which opens side two is a dream-like womb of a song, all heavenly auras, twinkles, pattering, echoing percussion seemingly in another room. It's a magical slice of cosmic head-candy for sure. I'm really behind now so I'm gonna leave on that note, hopefully you'll come to realise my review only suggested a fraction of how much fun to listen to this sweet, varied record is. Plenty of personality and depth to this one...
