8/10 Laurie Staff review, 22 January 2016

HTCOS is a duo of Italian FX junkies who enter the night for this little tape thing called Luna on Low Point. That’s the label that brought us such luxury music as Ex-Easter Island Head, Gareth Hardwick and Kyle Bobby Dunn, a favourite of resident crusty Robin. This C40 paints a still scene from that time where nature tends to take over and most humans are bogged down by their need to sleep.

Gently wavering drone notes coalesce into a single black wall on the first track, the subtle off-pitching offering some warmth in the night world. This one drifts by quite nicely, nothing to distinguish it too much from similar static tones, before the drones get separated - one drops to a low, foghorn call, and the other teeters on the brink of the softest feedback possible in the background, hinting at a more chaotic sound than is presented. That must be the ‘song of crickets’ that the track name refers to. I can’t believe that the only defined instrument on here is the guitar - you could guess at least a few types of synth and maybe some woodwind / stringy strings here, but it’s just a guitar, some tapes, some FX and a mixing desk.

‘Night climb to the mount analogue’, as well as having one of the best names in drone, takes a similar approach but with a more forlorn but strangely grand harmony. A sorrowful note threatens to pull you into oblivion, occasionally surfacing above the thrumming oscillations, but that’s about all the contrast you’ll find. Some nice minimal, tonal and meditative ambient pieces.
