Luciernaga – “Sleeping / Wandering” – [Fabrica Records]
Luciernaga is a project of Joao Da Silva, a member of the hardcore-punk scene in Santiago during the 90s who now lives in Brooklyn.
This 7″ contains two beautiful guitar-driven ambient drone pieces on clear vinyl. Both tracks are extended versions of songs originally released on cassette. Only 100 of these were pressed, each featuring one of four different photographs on the front.
“Sleeping Green-Eyed Girl” is a study in resonance and (subtle) dissonance. Shimmering feedback like a glass bell, with harmonics coalescing and then slowly melting away.
The B side, “Wandering June”, layers bowed strings, faint whistles, and low guitar rumblings. Very pensive and meditative.
