Boomkat Product Review:
"'Sever' is the third solo album by San Francisco-based composer Jim Haynes, whose singular music evades simple attempts to describe it. The process of decaying and wearing down materials is implied in 'Sever', its passages of rough clang and cyclic scraping metal seem implacably tangible, as if one is witnessing time-lapsing erosion in action. For me, Sever conjures images on oncoming storms, abandoned industrial sites, huge empty warehouses, creaking glass, ships rocking in a port, the middle of the ocean far from land. Sever is an engaging album of evocative, highly visual drone music made up of layers upon organic layers that are in constant motion, and yet somehow still."
