william fowler collins - Enter The Host
Previously heard on Type with his Perdition Hill Radio album (released almost exactly one year ago), New Mexico's William Fowler Collins returns to the dark side with Enter The Host, an EP that finds him setting down his guitar in favour of shuruti box. Once again, droning murk is the pervading force in Collins' work, but there's a restraint and focus at play here that sets this cassette apart from his feedback strewn full-length. The first side soon fires up a gnarled, sustaining signal that's leant depth as Collins cultivates and nurtures various overtones and contextual atmospherics. There's a penetrative urgency to this piece that - despite being derived from a fairly humble droning signal - has a real sense of energy to it, but it's the more sinister second side that makes the biggest impact, dispersing some grim harmonics across a quarter hour piece. Strands of stagnant tonality ripple slowly up until around halfway, when Collins seems to clean up his act a little, consolidating the piece into a simple, organ-like presence that grinds the tape to a close in a shadowy and stealthily modulating fashion.
