Endless Caverns – Colour BreathingPosted: December 7, 2013
Fresh from Eiderdown Records, a new cassette by the Herbcraft crew head shaman, Matt Lajoie‘s solo vehicle, Endless Caverns. Rolling layers of psychedelic folk loop into sprawling, Gottsching-esque universes that are a little faded under a lot of tape hiss which nevertheless helps to build the dusted atmosphere of this record. The word “intimate” used by the label describes the sound well, with gentle tremolo reigning over the feeble, zoned out sound. Add the whacked-out cover by Max Clotfelter and we’ve got ourselves a great caveman lo-fi folk package right there.
