Watkins, Zachary James – “Black Spirituals” – [None]

“Doepfer modular synths + gospel field recordings + marshall half stack + the amazing drumming of jordan glenn = holy shit!!!” – from the website of The Norman Conquest, who engineered some tracks on this release. Zachary comes from Oakland, but I think is currently teaching music in Santa Cruz. It all starts out with the first track, which sounds like a glowing alien hub. Slowly keeping the place in tact, it could alternate as a sci-fi sound effect track. It leads you into the next, 20 minute long epic doom track. Warning: ends about 2 minutes early! Track three has a sort of melancholic, but uplifting feel from the guitars. Crazy drums hide in the background, while words speak over the whole thing. The final piece is a long ending drone, very monotone and finishing. Altogether a great collection!
