Got an LP of drones here from San Diego's Alex Cobb, two on each side of this LP. This guy likes to take things very, very slow. That's why they call them drones.

Got an LP of drones here from San Diego's Alex Cobb, two on each side of this LP. This guy likes to take things very, very slow. That's why they call them drones. To start with we've got 'Famosa' which is a slightly cacophonous and organic sounding orchestra-tuning-up type drone, leading in to the very different 'Rain at the Fete' with its synthetic swells of pure tone and gentle guitar interjections, almost like a less earthy Stars of the Lid.   Flip it and we have 'Oversong' which features his buddy Maxwell Croy on Koto...this one seems to be somewhere between the organic and synthetic drones of the two contrasting pieces on side A, with a fuggy cloud of wavering synth hum hovering over some weeping bowed string droning. This one is strangely rousing. Finally we close with mystery drone 'Marine Layer', which I will refrain from describing so that I don't give away the ending. If you're into your therapeutic droney business like Kyle Bobby Dunn and Stars of the Lid and Celer, you'll find plenty of subtle slow-flowing tones to sink into here.
