9/10 Brian Staff review, 23 November 2012
This is a very lovely sounding record from the super-multi-talented ex-90 Day Man who made the recent live shows by Om sound even more stratospheric than ever the other month.
This is a hard record to review, The opener sounds like a mystical folk-drone piece made in a misty Icelandic forest with lots of mewling wordless vocal tones and blurry shifting atmospheres. Totally spellbinding. The other track of any considerable length nearly blows your speakers with the low-end drone catching you right in the Adam’s Apple. Or in the Lady Throat if you’re the fairer sex. This is layered with a much lighter high-end shimmer. The two together do strange drowsy things to your head.
The queer syllable-free mewling returns on side two, sounding in spirit like a collaboration with the girl from Mum and the pitched-up gurgle you used to get from Bogdan Raczynski when he decided to rap one off in deranged Polish accent. It brings forth a very unusual dimension to this music, I cannot believe his voice actually sounds like this, it’s like he’s had some helium and is singing into a bicycle pump. The final tune weighs in at over 16 minutes long and sounds quite like an uber-cosmic take on Grouper’s murky ghost-coreOne of the oddest “drone” records I’ve heard in a long time. It sounds slightly Scandinavian and faintly sinister but mostly just gorgeous and otherworldly. You won’t have heard anything quite like it this year.
