Album Review

Dilloway, Aaron & Yeh, C. Spencer – “The Squid” – [Hanson Records]

Roland Blunt   2/29/2012   A Library, CD

The sonic collision of two midwestern experimental noisestronauts…Aaron Dilloway ( formerly of the post-industrial noise outfit Wolf Eyes ) and C. Spencer Yeh ( past collaborations with John Weise, Tony Conrad, and Ryan Jewell ). Tracks 1-3 were originally released as an LP, on Dilloway’s own Hanson Records label, in 2007…now re-issued with a 4th bonus track collage of the 3 movements from their out-of-print “False Speech” cassette. The aftermath is an example of classic psychedelic ambient noise…a haunted, abstract, nebulous, entrancing, disturbing, languid cacophony of sounds. This is far from aimless noodling, or a happy accident…tape loops, tape delay effects, tape-bow, violin, electronics, field recordings from Tibet, and effected vocals are deployed to produce a dark, elliptical din that elicits a disturbed mindscape into a seemingly ancient conflict.
