Some psychedelic drone music to bathe yourself in from Komodo Haunts. He’s actually called Ollie and from Lincolnshire. With a mix of analogue and digital, Suijin pulsates and woozes, shimmers and squirms and is ultimately captivating with its rhythmic and intertwined layers of sound.

Get ready to swim against the tide. Infatuated with disintegration and slow-burning fracture, Ollie Tutty has made 'Suijin', a record of forceful but aimless psychedelic drone that totally ambiguities the idea of "texture" -- what we can we hear, after all, except that one great wall of sound? On this record, his longform pieces are astonishingly sustained but impressively beautified -- he uses rolls of an undead piano, distanced in the ambient fog, to lend a sense of home recording to the ghost-haunted "Goliath Breached The Heavy Clouds". It's the kind of record that slows down time, but doesn't freeze its participants.
Like recent drone compatriots on the Hibernate and Eilean labels, what Tutty is doing is curiously diverse, incorporating toy instrumentation for melodies that are cluttered but tender. At times on "Beetles Don't Like the Rain" it sounds like a Sigur Ros album could poke its head around the corner, peaking through Tutty's constant waves of restrained sound -- ultimately, though, he derives beauty from every style he sees fit. Phenomenal stuff for a noisy new age.
