Loving... 'Urban Legends' by Earlyguard
My friend, the prolific Earlyguard has done it again... releasing one of the most suspense-filled and deeply atmospheric ambient drones that I've heard in a while.
'Urban Legends' is simply marvellous. A journey into the unknown that begins with subtle drones and a regular motif that makes me think of heavy breathing... the result of being anxious and 'on edge'... drawing the listener into a dark and mysterious realm... before, some 20 or so minutes in, introducing resplendent light into the sound... a glorious and radiant relief.
I won't spoil the soundscapes presented for you... other than to say this is, once again, something very special to experience.
