Natural Snow Buildings. Terror´s Horn

Natural Snow Buildings. Terror´s Horn (ba da bing, 2015)

"Stringed instruments trill, percussion gongs, feedback hisses and vocals maintain near monotone as if in a cultish trance. The songs still pride themselves on a slow development, and the album’s progression lends the impression of descending down through the depths, past hidden cavities and chambers that you will never unsee once experienced." Ba Da Bing

Hush Arbors. Hush Arbors

Hush Arbors. Hush Arbors (ecstatic peace, 2008)

"Water" begins the album with a brief instrumental that immediately sidesteps any negative connotations of 'folk rock' tedium. This is followed, appropriately, by "Follow Closely." Equal parts Byrds, Neil, and the ghosts of a hundred private press loners, Keith's lovely overlapping vocals and guest Ben Chasny's lead guitar solo make this an album highlight. And dig these heavy lyrics: "So I go to the mountains & carry with me / The bones & dust that I've found, that exist within / And set a flame to the dead that follow closely / And I look to the light and see it through her eyes." You go, Dungeon Master! James Jackson Toth
