about

Zelienople’s Matt Christensen and Neatly Knotted / Nevada Greene’s Ben Chlapek team up for a sensuous long form improvisation in four parts on their first outing together for Dismal Niche.
A casual survey of existential dread and nocturnal anxiety, the album is nuanced in a way many instrumental, ambient and drone albums aren’t. There is the repose many look for in this type of music - slowly exhaling analog synth swells and the high-end kosmische lunar vibes flutter, dancing freely over the top of it all - but there is also a sort of nervous tick. While laconic and illusory guitar lines nonchalantly trace shadowy wisps of figures with a kind of eerie jazz-like fluidity, they slightly stutter here and there while a quick minor chord piano plunk and an emerging synth arpeggio keep you alert to the things moving just out of sight in the dark.
