- Bird Songs In A Deep, Hollow Tone by Sachiko
8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 23 October 2012
Japanese drone-queen Sachiko has a very limited CD here from Linney’s ever-prolific Reverb Worship workshop, recorded and mastered by long-time collaborator Rinji Fukuoka, which has four lengthy pieces. Opener ‘Rajin Song III’ has looped drones of bowed viola, delicate twinkles and wisps of ethereal Christina Carter-esque vocals poking through the haze, reminding me of the likes of Natural Snow Buildings, Windy & Carl and Rain Drinkers, but with a bit of a warm, blurred Hakobuneish feel too.
This melodic drift continues in various guises throughout the CD. On ‘Soar’ the cosmic drone is joined by recorder toots and jangly percussion, ‘Ajar’ has a rumbly drone and some crazy vocal loops where Sachiko seems to be imitating a cat (no, really!). Who does she think she is, Yoko Ono? It’s initially unnerving but then quite relaxing, and it’s definitely weird! The UPS man just said “What the hell is this?!” and he was only in the room for like 30 seconds.Then to round off the CD there’s the almost-16-minute ‘Appear In The Sky’, which is a long, celestial peace drone which brings to mind Celer to ease us back down after the yowly madness of the previous track. It’s really lovely. What a curious CD.
