St. Francis Duo – Peacemaker AssemblyPosted: March 22, 2016
[ Trost Records, 2016 ]
St. Francis Duo is an explosive free drone unit formed by guitarist Stephen O’Malley and drummer Steve Noble. On Peacemaker Assembly O’Malley breaks up with the ultra-distortion of Sunn O))) and goes for equally droning and psychedelic, yet less amplified and more liquid areas, while Steve Noble keeps showering everything with a deluge of crashes and cymbals in a frenzy of free improv drumming. SOMA’s drones are slow and monumental, yet somewhat nearly ambiental in nature, providing a transformative backdrop for Noble’s insane drum assaults. At times it even feels like a less harsh version of La Morte Young. Deep psychedelic free improvisation to help you achieve higher states. Recommended!
