8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 20 November 2012
Fuzz fans will be happy to see that we’ve managed to score a few copies of this very limited new LP from Dead C guitarist Michael Morley’s long-running Gate solo project. On this album there’s a long track on each side. ‘Turned and glowing inwardly’ is a slow-drifting, dense wall of cracked, rumbling guitar drone, accompanied by distant bass drum pulses and some eerie high-pitched vocal mumbles the press release describes it as “moaning...reminiscent of pre-war blues chants”. Towards the end it seems to disintegrate into dark, thrashed crackles over which some smooth, slightly industrial dark ambient loops gradually take the fore.Flip it and there’s ‘Turning and towards the light’ continues with the intimate, brooding vibes, but things are a bit looser and less droney, with a creaking, clanking guitar patiently cutting into a dense haze of humid, sticky, crumbling womb-like murk. There’s more vocals, even weirder than on the first side, and it succeeds in being oppressively intense despite so little happening. It sounds like the soundtrack to smugglers trying to land their cargo on some remote, rocky bluff somewhere in the middle of the night. Ominous stuff.
