Earlier this year, Adam Williams along with Leonardo Rosado put out one of the most beautiful albums of the year, Take This Longing (Feeback Loop). So when Williams announced that he, as Model Citizen, would be releasing a new album, I was filled with anticipation. Model Citizen’s The Duke of Lancaster (Audio Gourmet) is everything I had hoped for, a beautifully layered two-song EP of drones that capture the listener’s attention. Each track seems to be divided into two parts, though not straying too far from the theme, and this division gives you an opportunity to reflect. Along with the fascinating tracks is the equally impressive cover photograph of The Duke of Lancaster by Hannah Richards. This photograph adds to the melancholy of Williams’ drones and provides a great example of the importance of artwork with a netlabel release.
Tracks: 01. I and 02. II.
After a tough day a work and coming home to a sick child, sometimes trying to get blogging in is a difficult thing. But on the way home I came across Entia Non‘s Dead Blue Horizon (Audio Gourmet). It was just the thing as I drove along the back roads that periodically touched the river beds. And now its bed time and I haven’t still written anything, but a look over my playlist from today brought me back to Dead Blue Horizon. James McDougall aka Entia Non isn’t a stranger to me — okay, maybe McDougall is — but Entia Non is not, due to several releases on test tube and Resting Bell. Entia Non’s latest work on Audio Gourmet is short, a mere 15 minutes, and it hugs the shores “ambient noise” though it leans heavily towards the ambient side. A great work and what was needed for this listener at this specific time.
Tracks: 01. Penultimate Teather, 02. When The Land Settles You, and 03. Nicklin’s Gate.
