Catlin, Tim & Machinefabriek – “Patina” – [Low Point]
Tim Catlin is a guitarist and sound artist based in Melbourne, and Machinefabriek hail from the Netherlands. This is their second collaboration together, this time on white vinyl. Beautiful side long tracks of lush, dreamy guitar drone. The first side has resonating tones and a ghostly floating chorus in the background. Incredibly mellow and relaxing. Sounds of bells and chimes drift through. Has an abrupt end. Track two has more of a loud feel to it. A slowly pulsing guitar drone, still with a hovering undertone though. A rhythmic pounding joins about halfway, then fades out. Very nice!
