Japan’s reigning monarch of the blurry guitar drone, Hakobune, returns with an epic 2CD dronework this week. You probably already know the score with this ambient veteran. We’re talking monolithic walls of indistinct melody, earth’s core rumbles and cathedral-esque reverb shimmer, rising and receding as slowly and surely as the tides. It’s time-stopping, meditative stuff which fills a space somewhere between the spacious minimal melodies of Chihei Hatakeyama or Stars of the Lid and the sweeping otherworldliness of Rhys Chatham’s ethereal guitarmies.
It’s a winning aesthetic for sure, and this album takes full advantage of Hakobune’s sweet skills with a sleepy soundscape. It’s making me feel both relaxed and uplifted. However there’s not much more to say about this that hasn't already said about this guy in previous reviews. If you’re into drones you almost certainly know exactly what to expect here...and if not, there are many more unpalatable places to start than this.
