Album Review

Natural Snow Buildings – “Night Coercion Into The Company of Witches” – [Ba Da Bing]

abacus   10/24/2012   A Library, CD

Apparently French duo Mehdi Ameziane and Solange Gularte are pretty prolific in the realm of experimental drone, though we wouldn’t know it since all of their releases come in ridiculously limited runs. Thankfully, Ba Da Bing rereleased here, an album from 2008 (originally 22 copies); unleashing their ancient tribal emanations. Massively dense ragas woven together and timestretched to the big bang, keep you transfixed in hypnotic rapture, transporting you back to primordial earth and creation. Melodica mantras and flute reveries cascade from chasms of harmonium drone. Acoustic guitar rituals and percussive hypnosis dance around a raging fire. Ghostly chants and echoes of prayer bells and chimes offer respite from the avalanches of distorted guitar bliss. These extra long tracks soar through universes of sound, grasping possession of your soul for what seems an eternity but passes instantly. It’s like that last flood of DMT before you go. Will you take the journey?
