One of drone music's most important Billys returns with what we imagine will be a gorgeous and crystalline record. Part of found sound snippet crew Fraufraulein and hot off one of the warmest ambient record's of 2015, Certain Words Again and Again, his newest effort has been prepped for drone school Students of Decay, for whom he lays down eight new pieces shimmering on the surface but deeper into the textures.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 13 October 2016
I keep on getting whined at for giving staff weird and difficult ambient music to review so...hey...the boot is on the other foot now. See if I like it.
Billy Gomberg is surely ambient music's best Billy. Here he has created a fascinating soundtrack of buzzes and hisses that is sometimes cold and dislocated and sometimes warm and hopeful. This twisting shards of sound seem to grow out reaching tendril like towards the ear. 'Acute' is cut and splintered as if glued together with gloy but when he lets the buzzes form into a whole as on the silken 'Mammals on Stilts' or the truly delicious 'Caprice' he dives headlong into the murky grainy world of the Caretaker. This is the most dislocated track here but also the best. The kind of thing that would be happy soundtracking rain pouring down a rustic window on the grey-est day of the year. Stellar ambient stuff to be sad to.
