Review of Shape Memory [12k1088]

Discreet Music (SE)

(Translated from Swedish)

Two ambient favorites release disc together at 12K. Recorded on a free day at the S1 / Synth Library in Portland when Slowdive was touring the US. A 36 minute song divided into three parts. Before they met, they had shared recordings on cassettes with field recordings, tape loops, acoustic sounds and various synthesizers. Over these recordings they also played live with guitar, cymbals, contact microphones, live samples and synthesizers. The result is so beautiful. Drone, melodious, discordant with some electroacoustic elements. Invalid as usual when it comes to 12K.
