9/10 Mike Staff review, 31 August 2012
Everyone’s favourite mega-prolific spliff-jammer is back with a new LP of his slow-chunter radiance for you to stick up your life pipe. Opening with apocalyptic slow guitar dirge-rumblings and wet analogue bloop-loops, we then find ourselves in a sheet of what sounds like violin drone, then bringing in some gently throbbing, shimmering guitar picking and dubby high pitched swoops before the real desert island delayed guitar picking comes in, massaging your head into a mongy putty while the background loops throb and decay away to themselves.
It’s pretty upbeat and airy for Wright, and definitely back in the cosmic psych-drone chunter territory he excels at (although it was a thrill to hear him doing straight stoner trio jams on that cool recent four-way split), creating a sprawling new-age stillness and then tinkering around inside it like Sun Araw gone cosmic drone. Apparently these jams came from the same session as last year’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it ‘Hovering Resonance’ 12” and aesthetically it’s in similar places too, with his blazing cosmic guitar leads being both understated and grandiose and the dense fuggy analogue dronescapes being exotic and intoxicating.
Flip it and there’s more analogue droning and dusky shredding on ‘Backmasking Deeper than Darkness’ before closer ‘Pulsing Rings Of Ice’ brings in insistent tinny drum machine tics with an accompanying bass throb pushing the sheets of middy synth drone ever-upwards into the ambient techno cosmos until they’re finally overwhelmed by warm bass swells. Nice.
