Boomkat Product Review:
Haunted, noirish tape loops, field recording and guitar ambience from Wavering Hands’ Laurin Huber, gloaming in zones and tones shared by Lynch/Badalamenti scores, Ashley Paul, Dean Hurley.
Effectively transposing the possessed air of Twin Peaks to the Swiss Alps and remote European, Huber’s 2nd solo release pursues the vibe of their 2020 debut LP ‘Juncture’ into slowly unsettling and introspective headspaces, using a less-is-more approach and appreciation of negative space to evoke a mysterious mountain air, like we’re perched in a wooden cabin miles away from civilisation.
Their opening statement of sallow guitar strokes and Korg MS20 tones in ‘Raja’ is named after the Northern Sami and Finnish for ‘Border’ and acts as a liminal threshold for the EP, which progresses from the vaporous ghost dance and hypnagogic grogginess of ‘Nickel’ to deliciously noirish neo-gothic synth pads on ‘A Town Is Not A Town,’ and appears to pass out into foggy mountainside drone scenes hashed with radio comms and EVP pheneomena bouncing off granite cliff faces in ’Storskog-Borisoglebsk,’ which is aptly titled after the northernmost land border between Schengen-Europe and Russia.
