Tape Chants

(Kranky) Used CD $12.00

The second album by this Oakland-based composer opens with a minute-long track of tactile, engine-rev drone…. His drones get denser and moodier as they progress, gathering dust and debris to become more like field recordings than studio compositions,” says Pitchfork. “[T]ones begin with a sandy hue, then drift into low-end rumble and what sounds like acoustic string plucks…. Kowalsky’s work … is mostly for hardcore drone-fans, and even they might not be blown away by Tape Chants. But anyone can appreciate his attention to detail.”
