Time Released Sound are known for the sheer attention to detail they put into their limited CD releases, and this one has been put out in a mega-limited “chocolate box” 2x3” CD edition which we're still not sure if we'll be able to even get a hold of. We've definitely got the 5” CD version already though. Needless to say that I, whilst reviewing this from a plain old promo, am more than a little curious to see how the finished product looks in the flesh!
Taskerlands is the duo of Michael “Plinth” Tanner and David “United Bible Studies” Colohan, both on guitar, with a little assistance from friends on piano, bass clarinet and “frequencies”. We've got two songs totalling 40+ minutes of somnolent, tinkly ambience with a slight Harold Budd feel. The dominance of guitar tones lends it a slightly psych-folky angle; but if there's one foot in ambient and one foot in psych folk, the one in ambient is certainly the larger and heavier foot.
The tones contained within are all relaxing and light and designed to ease the pressure off your tightly squeezed mind grapes for a while when you need a little respite. They work, too. Nicely done.
