As we reluctantly acquiesce from the vibrant colors of Autumn & on into the throes of Winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, the long darkness & deep cold begins to envelope our world. ‘Fall back’ they say, & perhaps that is aptly put, as the feeling does resemble that of falling backwards; weightless, waiting for what’s to come.
Yet with each ending comes a new beginning, as is represented in this ambient noise soundscape, ‘Dawn Patrol‘, via The Square Community. Analogous synths & lush, chamber orchestra-based, keyboard-driven cassette loops humanistically mesh with the tangible sounds of a gentle guitar & sparse harmonica. Each individual piece statically intermixes into an organically hybridized amalgam, as the warble of magnetic tape creates a sonic atmosphere cathartic & uniquely visceral. This an adventurously singular work, with a comfortingly familiar backbone; taking a further trip is well worth your time:
