Warm Climate – Agnomen I [Obsolete Units]

humana   8/28/2009   A Library, CD

The cool artwork on the handmade CD sleeve is in keeping with the two songs on this CD from a California outfit offering noise/industrial/ambient music. Ocean, Sympathetic Response (1) has guitar, vocalizations, and field noise sounds. It is very weird but not annoying at all, more like a droning with a lot going on in a comforting white noise sort of way. Sough—Warm Winter (2) starts out very differently, with a piano and single string working out a classical conversation in a very spare environment to which percussion, percolation, something that sounds like bagpipes or an accordion, and moaning vocalizations are layered to give a MiddleEastern feel. Very nice and my preferred of the tracks.
