Glass House – Glass HousePosted: September 23, 2012
First of all, kudos for this project for having a PERFECT name. I don’t know how no one in the whole drone/ambient scene didn’t come up with such a name before, but here it is – a NYC/Philadelphia group carving cosmic vibrations from the distant future, so distant it is covered with a static of fading memories and lonely, emotional (even though it’s basically just dense textures with little melody) soundscapes. This is the soundtrack to a dream that may or may not happen – like dreaming of better places, where everything is good and everyone live in glass houses. Such an idea has a potential to possess a darker, more sinister edge – just like this album, where some darker undercurrents run below the massive, monolithic drones. Recommended.
