Crib – “Remnant ” – [Transparency]
Crib (bassist Devin Sarno working solo) has been exploring low-end drone situations for over a decade now. Here are three pieces of typical Crib ambience, with unobtrusive contributions by a handful of guests on violin (P.Haden, J.Gauthier) and guitar (G.E.Stinson, N.Cline). Sarno adds subtle coloration to the mix with voices, breathing, and, on one track, a locomotive passing by. Each of the tracks is lovely and floaty, but not without a feeling of underlying tension to keep things in balance. Nearly 40 minutes of spacious chill-outs; little sonic worlds for you to explore. All in all, another fine installment in the Crib series.
