Boomkat product review for:

barn owl - Shadowland

San Francisco's Barn Owl follow their widely acclaimed Thrill Jockey debut 'Ancestral Star' with the arrestingly evocative evolution of 'Shadowland', a truly outstanding record matching the panoramic visions of Ennio Morricone or Stephen O'Malley. For the past five years it's been a rare pleasure to witness the duo of Jon Porras and Evan Caminiti plane their majestic sound to a transcendent blend of panoramic guitar vistas and levitating synth music which they can proudly call their own. Each new transmission from their perch is greeted with bated breath and consumed like the lushest mid-winter fruit by a range of listeners who hear the genius in their scope and ability to pan the trace elements of drone, americana, black metal and ambient music into a dissolute, distinctive whole. Recorded by Phil Manley of Trans Am, and mastered at Berlin's D&M, 'Shadowlands' is a sumptuously rendered trip gliding from the Popol Vuh-like choral synth ascension of 'Void And Destruction', through the hallucinatory guitar mantra of the title track, and over to the remote wilderness of 'Infinite Reach'. This record is a monolithic episode in Barn Owl's catalogue and one we urge you to spend some time with. Recommended.
