Album Review

RST – “Sunset Limited, The” – [Utech Records]

Thurston Hunger   12/11/2010   A Library, CD

Prolific Andrew Moon as RST delivers drones that have a
soundtracky (if not solar) flair. Dark humming black holes at
the core, but slow shifting pulses at the fringes. Like some
sort of sonic diffraction. Recorded in a long white cloud
known as Aotearoa to some, and New Zealand to others. As this
is out on Utech, I assume it was a live gig, but the recording
has a studio’s nuanced attention to detail. All effects are
well controlled, like docking a huge galactic guitar. No
scrape of misaligned metal, no squeal of runaway feedback.
Slow draping of chords, heavy delay on higher notes, and
feedback exists but it lands as gracefully as a bird on water.
Stability built from steadfast simplicity, the first four
tracks find their desolate soul in a more pronounced manner,
the latter four drift more aimlessly.
