Ghostheory and Tree Helicopter - The Insidious Effects of Nostalgia

Sometimes listen to everything is getting a bit old. There are labels and artists I want to listen to that I just haven’t been able to get around to, such as the netlabel Webbed Hand Records. I did review a release of their’s in early August, Mystified’s Adventures of Plunderman (review), but that was purely by accident as it was originally a self-released album that moved over to Webbed Hand. What’s the point of this short rant and no review as yet? What this issue brings to light I think is that I listen to too much damn music and  that I am not discriminating enough in my listening habits. At least I think I know what the problem is, but no solution as of yet.

I promised a review, so here it is. Two veterans of the netlabel ambient scene, Andrew Latham and C.P. McDill got together as Ghostheory and Tree Helicopter, respectively, to put out The Insidious Effects of Nostalgia. The compelling Nostalgia is long three-part dark ambient work filled with deep tones and well-chosen noises. It’s of no surprise that this work is good, but what’s amazing is the artists ability to hold on to the listener’s ear for the several hours it takes to repeatedly listen to this work.

    Thanks for the review! It was a very interesting collaboration for me in that I learned some new things and got some new inspirations in the process of dark-ambientizing the material.
