From one drone straight to another. I just finished writing about Orbit Over Luna's graceful new processed guitar and piano drift-a-thon 'Transit' (which is really beautiful and I recommend you check it out) and now I'm digging my ears into the new Matthew Shaw CD, whose sleeve comes wrapped in a sheet of A4 adorned with a cat photo and signed and numbered by the artist himself.   As for the actual disc, the music here is a very different beast to the aforementioned Orbit Over Luna CD, with more of a physicality about it, the focus being on texture rather than melody, and capturing sounds as they are created as opposed to processing them into an unrecognisable blur. It's easy to pick out the sounds of scraping strings, breathy flutes and booming brass in the strange sonic sludge presented here, along with the occasional crisply strummed guitar and snippets of field recorded birdsong.   Quite often the dense webs of organic tones have a strangely breathy humanity to them and are reminding me of the Rain Drinkers' earthily spiritual droneworks. It's a beguiling listen
