Dura – Silver / LawnsPosted: April 22, 2014
Brooklynite Matson Ogg sets out again on the ocean of gentle ambient sounds with the endless guitar spray of Silver/Lawns cassette, released via the emerging Polish experimental label Wounded Knife Records. Everything’s laid out here: from the clear cassette, revealing plainly how much tape is on the spools, to the artist and album title right there on the front cover (my fiancee would’ve loved that one), and most imporantly, the sounds are right there in the front, bare and emotional, yet calm and free of violent movements. It’s like accepting everything and knowing it’s gonna be OK in the end. One of the most clean-cut ambient meditations I’ve heard in some time. Highly recommended!
