Boomkat Product Review:
Ten years into their ever-evolving imprint, LA's big-eared Post Present Medium offer a sublime slice of personalised ambient noise and shoegaze by Matthew Sullivan (Privy Seals, Deep Jew) as Earn. To date most of the Earn output has appeared on his own Ekhein label, with a few on Agents Of Chaos and Young Tapes for measure, but this the first we've heard from him as Earn and it's making a heavy impression. 'A Following Shadow' is a great example of how fine the line is between drooling wallpaper ambience and genuinely evocative beatless spaces. Falling firmly in the latter category, it opens a boundless, transcendent zone of shimmering guitar textures and pedal-teased effects shaped into emotive symphonic peaks and swirling, otherworldly atmospheres from the same constellations as close ally Rene Hell or even reminding of Leyland Kirby's most far gone experiments, interpreting and evincing similarly profound moods and experiences. There's moments of sheer melodic bliss like 'Pressure Of Speech' next to the beautifully violent shoegaze storm of 'Living Daylight' and the hollowed drone tunnel 'Only Black Out', all providing something far more visceral, relevant and "real" than so much of the ambient mush churned out by pissed-pants operators week after week. Fans of Vatican Shadow, Rene Hell, Leyland Kirby, Pete Swanson, this is a highly recommended purchase.
