Boomkat product review for:

stian westerhus - The Matriarch And The Wrong Kind Of Flowers

Remarkable album of string drones and manipulations by one of Norway's and the world's most talented, visionary new guitarists. With 'The Matriarch And The Wrong Kind Of Flowers' he can safely be regarded in the realm of Eyvind Kang, KTL, Pan Sonic, Jim O'Rourke for his calibre of sheer, icy, sonorous soundscaping and contemporary composition. He's aided in no small part by the mastering touch of Helge Sten aka Deathprod, but the often breathtaking production, recording, and mixing is entirely handled by Stian. It's incredibly difficult to believe that it's all sourced from just guitar and vocals, but unless Rune Grammofon are lying (we thinks not) this really is a stellar accomplishment. He uses the famous natural 20 second reverbs of Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum in Oslo to great effect, lending his haptic sensitivities a sepulchral quality and grandness while some subtle, and some heavily applied, digital processing amplifies the effect to stunning degrees. It's strongly recommended to fans of the recent Roly Porter records, Demdike Stare, KTL, Deathprod.
