Holocene – ChannelPosted: November 19, 2012
Mumbai, India may be probably the last place on Earth where you might expect to find some cold, alienated ambient/drone music with a heavily unsettling edge. But the electronic project of Rasik Srinath seems to work as a means of esape from the oppressive heat of the Indian metropolis. The sounds of “Channel” are distant, deeply atmospheric and blurry, as if they were recorded in some remote village in the far north reaches rather than one of the biggest cities on our planet (near the Equator, no less!). Sombre acoustic guitar impressions meet glacial Sunn-like drones in an unholy union of the love of Drone. Impressive work. Recommended!
