Matt Davignon – “The 3am Music ” – [Ribosome Music]
Matt Davignon’s “The 3am Music” seems pretty aptly titled. An album of ambient and noise that evokes the sounds your house might make as it creaks when you’re trying to fall asleep. This is on the more mellow and palatable side of the genre; quite minimal and benign, it doesn’t have the punch of some other noise artists; but what it lacks there it makes up in curiosity and strangeness. Analog organs, acoustic bass notes, plucks and tears, the sound of spiders walking across water, pulsating and carried tones and drones.
