Sounding the Deep – GlacierPosted: March 22, 2014
If you got a sunburn from listening to Energy Gown (or any other sun-scorched psych rock), have some ice to cool your suffering. Glacier by David Williams (Sounding the Deep) is a search for life under the glaciers of Antarctica. The shorter opening and closing tracks serve as brackets for the two droning and cavernous main courses which serve as an imagining of Lake Vostok and similar lakes thousands of meters under the ice. Equally wonder-inducing and creepy, Glacier is an imaginary exploration of the reclusive, isolated worlds. One of the last on this Earth that has not been properly explored yet. Well, maybe with the exception of the Earth’s core, but we’ve already got a hilariously bad movie taking us there.
