Yellow Swans - Global Clone [Pacrec - 2006]

Globe Clone finds for the most part finds The Yellow swans more drony, aggravated grimy ambient sate, than their usual denser and more noisy tactics, striped nearly  of all the electronic beat work and  noisy walls of sound- this is a more ominous, sinister meditative, creepy and clearly unpleasant proposition.

It collects together various  tracks from cassettes releases from 2005, and real is as good as anything else they’ve done, maybe not having the same wide scope as this year amazing Psychic Secession. But more than making up for it with atmosphere- you could almost saw through. The first track feels like your been unshed into a deserter and run down cinema screen. All the time you feel like you been watch from the bent shadows and from behind the ripped seat backs. Stale unpleasant drones hover in the air, that to murmur of sweat & blood smeared torso, heads with eyes rolled back into heads. They layer up slow metallic drones and  clicks- almost to a suffocating point, as  strange images  of cut limbs suddenly elumnated the  cinema screen.

Track two  is the longest on offer here at 22 minutes feels like it could be ready to take off into noisy blow out – but never really gets there bassy sinister thuds are met by  guitar squeal, that very soon drops in to creepy dieing man chanting , then slides into concentration on streached last breaths buzzing, with hell’s floor drones, and shuddering calls from the abyss. The last track finds us in almost sinister post rock vibe, streached guitar tone angle and shudder in creepy grace, making a wonderful ominous  feeling of failed heroics to exit this collection of tracks.

A rather splendid collect of tracks and another quality releash from these raiseing noise stars.
