The press release tells us that the second LP from Portland’s drowse was recorded in pretty unhappy circumstances. Kyle Bates, the band’s only full-time member, was struggling with mental health and addiction problems in the nine months in which Cold Air came to life. It’s as spaced-out and troubled a record as one might expect to emerge from these circumstances. Dream-pop, chamber-pop, post-rock and music concrete come together for an album that has pain at its core, yet also finds moments of great beauty and solace. For fans of Deerhunter, Cocteau Twins, maybe even a little bit of Suede...
