House of Sun (no . ∞)
edition of 50
Grant Evans presents forty minutes of minimalist sound sculpture, capturing guitar snippets, found field recordings and reel to reel tape loops on his latest cassette Dragging Alabaster. Beginning with a heady guitar sample repeated over a whirl and whisper of taped sounds and their mysterious origins, Grant lays down some of the most gripping noise over melody being produced right now. Its decidedly a crisp recording with lo fidelity roots. The flip side moans with slowed down tape samples blurring together to produce a lulling trance. Throughout the length of the tape, there are touches of indeterminable sound sources that repeat translucently, managing to captivate the listener with its constant subtle shifts. It's a thoughtful record, and one that should undoubtedly be on wax, but here it is offered first through House of Sun as a C40 limited edition cassette.
