Boomkat Product Review:
Line's latest release comes from Chicago's Scott Cortez. With hints of Fennesz and learned guidance from the sounds of Eno and Robin Guthrie et al, Scott works with treated guitars to create velveteen drones and blissed ambient spaces, often teetering on the brink of drifting into more secluded, and shadowy spaces but always remaining within view of the light. The effect of these nine tracks is a little like sitting at the window of a log cain on a remote hillside, watching a wintry sky outside almost imperceptibly cycle through a spectrum of tones, and of course conjuring Gas-like comparisons along the way. Fans of Seefeel, MBV, or Ulrich Schnauss will also get a lot of from this album. Warmly recommended!
