- Stay Asleep (Regression Vol. 2) by Nate Young
8/10 Mike Staff review, 30 November 2011
Great looking '70s-style psych covers on this with a nude lady under a giant green skull, and the music Wolf Eyes's Nate Young offers us on the platter is similarly affecting and minimal, dosing out a wibbly electronic sequence of pulses and drones and throbs and wibbles that's not a million miles away from the more abstract side of '80s horror soundtrack territory. It sounds like someone's asleep in their bed at night and their house is slowly and silently filling up with some kind of sinister night creatures without their knowing it. Under the beds, in the fridge, behind the TV, you name it. Some time soon they're going to wake up and and go to the toilet, reach for the light switch, then think twice about it and trudge back to bed oblivious. But this time they're not alone under the covers...there's something else there. Something pointy! Oh shit! Young certainly takes his time developing these tracks, and he leaves enough room for the tones and textures of the synths he's using to really be appreciated. On the second side things gradually become busier and more layered, and on closer 'Collapse' he's joined by John Olson on 'wind instruments' and Aaron Dilloway on 'tape fx' to create something that's got a more organically creepy feel, but still sounds like haunted house soundtrack music, with weird skitters and whistles over a creepy repeated piano refrain. The whole business is beautifully constructed and tasteful throughout, and anyone who likes minimal explorations into tone and texture and space will find a lot to appreciate here. Unique and thoughtful stuff.
