Stars In Aspic/ It's Here by Rivulets

8/10 Mike 27 February 2014

I'm not familiar with this band Rivulets but when Phil handed this 7" to me yesterday he said it was the first thing they'd done in ages and they were a bit like Low. He's right to some extent, as 'Stars In Aspic' itself sounds an awful lot like Duluth's finest, the plaintive vocals, the slowly strummed guitar, that church-like stillness even in what the press release tells us is the rock-out section. I suppose everything is relative. It's a gorgeous bit of old fashioned slowcore like I didn't know anybody made any more.

Over on the other side is something completely different. This is some kind of slow-burning drone piece with drawn-out Deathprod-esque melodies and subtle swelling chords of wibbling analogue dread. Really good, actually, although if drone music is good I can find the 7" format a little brief, and that's certainly the case here. If you're into all things sad and slow, you should pick this up.
