Tetragrammaton – Elegy for Native TonguesPosted: December 2, 2015
[ Subvalent, 2008 ]
Damn, it feels good to be back.
In 2008, there was a bunch of Japanese improvisers by the name of Tetragrammaton who dabbled in some serious droning space magick. Their debut release, Elegy for Native Tongues, is really something else. A deep ceremony full of feedback and organic drones that clash with drum freestyles and strange eruptions of electronic and electric distortions. This is what The Dead C might sound like if they listened to more jazz and were occultists. No wonder it got “Album of the Month” award from Julian Cope. And this was just the first disc. If he heard the second one, it would be an Album of the Year.
