TAIGA REMAINS

Crushed Radiant Deities

In this dense, polyphonic fugue of dynamic collisions and endless collapses, luminescent, wrecked shards of overtone drones merge with zoned and disembodied choral whispers and ribbons of pure white electricity.

TAIGA REMAINS

Works For Cassette

(Helen Scarsdale - HMS026) LP $15.00

In the final drone / hypnogogic statement from Alex Cobb under this moniker, a sadness of things hangs in the air. The decaying sound is a steady dissolution of one pattern chromatically rippling into another, which in turn diffuses into another, and the cycle continues. Mystery and ambiguity hang upon Cobb’s crepuscular minimalism; radiant guitar drones flecked with impressionist melodies bathe in the snow of a thousand radios placed throughout Easter Island offering forth their eerie, luminous and beautiful sound that floats among the stoic heads that gaze beyond the horizon of the Pacific ocean toward infinity (or oblivion if you prefer a more sublime reading). Includes “Sup Pralad,” “There’s Nothing” and “Skin, Leaves” from Beneath The Weeping Beeches cassette (Ekhein 2008), and “Winter Tai-Tung,” and “Spring Shan-Lin-Shi” from Thereafter cassette (Arbor 2008).
