QUETZOLCOATL [2006] TRIUMPHANT ROCK SHARDS RISE FROM THE SEA, AWAKEN MY GIDDY CHILD HEART



About: "We have been going a bit nuts for this drone murk ensemble, an offshoot of another group we're pretty gaga about, Irish drone collective Bonecloud, so we grabbed as many of this super limited release as we could get. These guys travel a similar sonic path as legendary Japanese drone improv outfit Taj Mahal Travellers, as well as sharing sonic similarities with some of their modern noiserock brethren like the Skaters, Birchville Cat Motel and the like.
Each track is some super obfuscated smear of sound, as if inside the tangle of fuzz and grit and whir and tape hiss and reverb and distortion was a little perfect pop song, or some dreamy vocal snippet, but we're peering at these sparkling gems through layer after layer of sonic murk, colors are muted and dull, like looking at a night time cityscape through an old broken and dirty window, a cracked prismatic swirl of constantly shifting sounds. Melodies or fragments of melodies surface and disappear, drift briefly into earshot then fade away. There seem to be vocals all over Triumphant, but they are so wreathed in fuzzy FX they become nothing more than disembodied melodic streaks, brief flitting blurs of sound. Reminds us a bit of Grouper, but less lush and organic and more raw and lo-fi and buzzy. Dreamy, fuzzy and lovely."

"Welcome the dark side of Ireland with the arrival of this new talent. After cdr releases for his Haunted Trail label and Onomato, dive in this world of echoes, strangled voices and other hypnotizing noisy drones. A medidative journey through a new age noise..."
