kyle bobby dunn - A Young Person's Guide to...

This new Low Point edition takes the four original tracks from Kyle Bobby Dunn's Moodgadget album, Fervency, and expands upon them with a whole extra batch of material, enough to fill up a second CD. Perhaps because of the double-length formatting, Dunn's music seems even more closely aligned with Stars Of The Lid, acheving a similarly time-elongating effect with his deeply immersive treatments of guitar, strings and brass. But for the excellent closing track, 'Small Show Of Hands' the first disc corresponds to the Fervency playlist (excluding the Moodgadget-only Viul remix, of course), so let's delve into the second disc for the bulk of the new material: 'Grab (And Its Lost Legacies)' is an incredible opening piece, sounding like a gradually shifting layer of brass overtones, virtually frozen for eleven minutes. Exhibiting a little more variation and a broader tonal palette, 'Empty Gazing' suggests what it might sound like if Biosphere's produced a Harold Budd record, embedding repeated orchestral phrases in a dense clump of processed ambience. The quality keeps on coming with the painfully brief 'Last Minute Jest', which treats half-finished piano phrases in foggy delays, while arguably the finest piece is left until last: 'The Nightjar' rounds off this wonderful collection with a booming low-end presence and a beautifully blurry sequence of bowed chords that eventually dissolve into a mysterious dialogue recording. There are so many drone records around these days - and a good portion of these reach a pretty high standard - but with this one, you can rest assured that you're in for something very special.
