microphones in the trees: reedbeds

Monday, January 30, 2012


"...The six untitled tracks of G’Morning Gomorrah oscillate between pastoral lo-fi guitar improvisations (with field recordings) in the style of Jewelled Antler roster (especially Loren Chasse) or the slow jams of Thoughts on Air and slowly evolving synthesizer-based drone pieces in the style of early Jeff Witscher (think Marble Sky at its most dronish). The fourth track gives a slightly creepy rendition of musique concrete with old song samples mangled beyond recognition, reduced to a set of droning ghost choirs, suddenly coming into existence and fading just as abrubtly. The last, longest track embodies the albums “ear to the ground” approach, enveloping the gentle synth notes with quiet hum, like a quiet wind going through the forest.

Reedbeds’ album, although extremely limited and not as “official” as other releases, offers a relaxing journey through a variety of aesthetics and might be an interesting link between the guitar-based improvisational ambience and the synth drone scene..." weed temple
