MGR – “Nova Lux” – [Neurot Recordings]

Numa   4/13/2006   A Library, CD

Sparse Droning Adventures. Outstanding instrumental solo release from Mike Gallagher of ISIS here on Neurot Recordings in which he explores ambient and droning sounds. Subtle shifts through-out this 44-minute adventure divided into 5 pieces keep you listening intently. Pulling in help from Oktopus (D’lek) and Greg Burns (Red Sparowes) on this release, Mike Gallagher sets up the perfect balance of droning soundscapes and sparse guitar. Every track has its own background drone setting the stage of the aural adventure of the guitar and bass. This is a soundtrack for breathing. Standing alone in the middle of a park at dusk on a chilly fall evening as the wind blows around you, breathe and look to the trees. Let the highway’s buzz transform into the ocean’s pulse. –Numa
