Album Review

Black Thread – “Descending Heliotrope Shards” – [Chaos of The Stars]

humana   9/1/2014   A Library, Cassette

I need to describe how this sounds without any knowledge of the band itself, except that its label is Chaos of the Stars, which is fairly apt in describing the sound. There is chaos and drone, and electronic ambience that borders on noise at times, but there is also the prettiness and comfort hinted at by the mention of heliotrope, which has purple flowers. Just think of how these flowers would sound if they were descending as shards, and you’ve got the sound. Also, the third track starts out reminding me of sizzling bacon grease, but then I realize it’s more of a blipping electronic sound. Very interesting music indeed.
