Here's Clinton review for Valley...
At my time of life it's very easy to get confused. As I was this morning, bleary eyed, looking at my review pile thinking, 'This has already been out before...'. Well what I was thinking about in my muddled state was the first part of this entitled 'Death'. This one, 'Valley' (geddit?), is the second part and both go together to make a full album which will be released on 2CD on Basses Frequencies this autumn. Explanations over and onto the music. It's what you might expect really, ambient evocative guitar driftings over the course of three lengthy pieces. More ambient and less 'played' than the Yellow 6 stuff. Instead, the guitars have been put through huge vats of reverb. Hugely evocative, nicely played cinematic instrumental ambience. My favourite track is 'Creek' with its gently ebbing guitars recalling Robin Guthrie or Vini Reilly producing lovely swathes of sound but the whole record is enticing for any fans of this kind of shifting soundscape.
and here's Brian's review for Death!
Now this is a real nice sounding record. If death sounds like this I'll happily slip away.... Erm.... As soon as I've seen Emeralds tonight. Not now. Oh Satan, take him instead, please! Yes! That man over there who just broke our toilet lever! How do you actually break a toilet lever? I despair. Anyway, enough digression. This collab is neither too doomy or particularly drifty. There's a tingly, dusty desert vibe throughout with some quietly ominous waves of impending doom on the fringes. 'Furnace' errs more toward desolate, shimmering dark ambience, but once more with a tumbleweed-y Godspeed feel on the backburner. Incredibly atmospheric & strangely beautiful, this is a piece to turn up real loud with some strategically placed candles dotted around. It's not often I feel like I'm hearing the distant wails of lost souls in a vast echo-laden sphere. I can hear them here. 'Salt' takes up the entirety of side two and is the epic journey to finish them all. If you ever wondered what a nervous Jon Yellow6 would sound like plonked on a stool by a pile of coyote skulls in the Nevada desert then you probably need to hear this very spectral record. It's a bit of a treat.
