Ltd 180g blue vinyl LP on Latitudes.
Aidan Baker is back with his second Latitudes session after 2010’s Nadja one, this time accompanied by tour-mates Plurals for two epic and very different passages of drifty atmospherics which run to about 20 minutes each. First up is ‘Dead Foxes In The Middle Of The Street’, which slowly and patiently layers drone upon drone until it’s a shimmering, morphing, multifaceted chord, static and yet constantly changing, suspended in time and space.
Flip it (or simply continue listening if you have the CD version) and there’s ‘Turning Children Into Mice’, which is based around a simple booming guitar melody which cycles hypnotically as the drones and interference start to build, going from a Coil-meets-Deathprod dread-drift, building slowly but surely into a doomy Decimus-esque swamp of crackling, creeping moods, far removed from the celestial drone shimmer of the other track. Fine stuff for those who like their records slow.
