Saaad. That's the name of a drone band if I ever did hear one. And yes, that's what's on this record. Drones of the deep space variety. I'm assuming the two sides have been titled 'Deep' and 'Float', although each is split into three fairly distinct tracks. I don't think I've ever come across a record with such a self-explanatory title in my life. People had better start watching it with these self-reviewing records or they'll put me out of a job along with that hamster that looks like Boris Johnson.
I'm listening to the side I presume is 'Deep' at the moment. It's pretty deep, lots of layers of shimmering synth drone piled on top of one another in a Princess & the Pea mattress scenario. Flipping it I'm surprised to discover that it's not all that floaty but kind of heavy and oppressive to begin with, like you're in Mordor, although it does ease off into angelic voices treated with about a minute of reverb by the third movement of the side via some uplifting sci-fi synth layers. It pretty much does what it says on the sleeve. If you like your drones deep and floaty, 'Deep/Float' could satisfy your needs.
