Boomkat Product Review:
The bass and guitar duo first declared their relationship with 1999's ‘The Lost Mariner’. Since then they have continued to develop their spindle of intwined sound and counter-melodies. While Darin Gray's tenure in the Dazzling Killmen, You Fantastic!, and Brise-Glace (and ongoing performances with, among others, Misha Feigin, Alan Licht, Ikue Mori, Bobby Conn Band and Jim O'Rourke, etc.) Darin and Loren performed at the Monroe County Library in Bloomington, Indiana in March 2000. A standing-room-only crowd remained hushed throughout and recording engineer Daniel Burton (of Early Day Miners, Ativin) attended to the sound. If you lock yourself inside the recording, approaching it not as a relic or a document but as an ever-evolving present, it seems to melt beautifully inside of your head, falling through time like honey from a spoon, each glimpse a separate sub-atomic entity, but also part of a glorious, gigantic whole.
