BREN’T LEWIIS ENSEMBLE

Tremendous Pace Of Melt

(Butte County Free Music Society - BUFMS91) 3-inch CDR $4.25

The second in the Dumb Tangerine Dream series delivers a single eighteen-minute track of spoon-bitten synth murb, irregular guitar noise pulsations, dry-rubbed crackles, clunks of indeterminate provenance, and a warped children’s record or two. Constructed of stellar foam and layers of drone-toasted loops, organized into abruptly shifting episodes that mimic a series of Julius seizures at subterranean laundromats, this amorphous-adjacent block of charred goo is sicker and sweeter than a midnight s’mores fail. Includes a burlap swatch courtesy Yvonne Lovejoy. Front cover by Shalimar Fox. Edition of 25.
