Artist: ABRONIA
Title: Obsidian Visions/Shadowed Lands
Format: LP
Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Debut LP by Portland Oregon sextet! One can find evidence of a pretty broad array of musical touchstones on Abronias Obsidian Visions/Shadowed Lands: Morricone Spaghetti Western soundtracks, spiritual free jazz, Tuareg guitar bands of the Sahara, drone metal, 70s Krautrock, Ethiopiques, Glenn Branca, outlaw country, various tribal music, 60s psychedelia, and maybe even a little 80s goth. Recorded onto 2" tape by Jason Powers (Grails, Moon Duo etc.) at the venerable Type Foundry Recording Studio, this album is a document of the first five completed compositions by the six piece. Replacing your standard drum set with an early 70s 30" marching drum, which proves to be a proper centerpiece for the guitars, lap steel and saxophone to create mesmerizing and sometimes cacophonous soundscapes. Everyone gathered around the drum and played together, with minimal overdubbing. Its a snapshot of a band coming right out of the gate with a powerful, realized vision, that in actuality was a long time coming for this group of veteran players." - Water Wing.
