Boomkat Product Review:
Magical transmission from Melbourne's Angel Eyes aka Andrew Cowie. Sourced by the relentlessly fascinating NNF label, 'Dire Dish' originally appeared on cassette sometime in 2010 loaded with 36 minutes of slow-droning, bluesy synth and twanging desert guitars, occasionally with vocals like a more solemn Forest Swords, Sun Araw, or Ian Curtis on too much codeine, and always with heavily evocative loner vibes. Funnily enough for someone from somewhere so hot, he's really got the drizzly, northern hemisphere ambience of Forest Swords (but then again, he's got the southern desert guitar thing going), and the warbly, tape-degraded synth fluctuations of BJ Nilsen, all bathed in an eternal twilight vibe regardless of geography. Because eventually it turns to night everywhere. There should be some more of this stuff coming out on Totem Tapes by now. You'd do very well to keep an ear out for that - this is very very good.
