Unearthed DIY ambient tape loops from the teenage mind of Warren Defever aka His Name Is Alive. With the help of Shelley Salant of Tyvek the original and ageing cassettes have been transferred and annotated resulting in a beautiful sequence of gently decaying, floating drone all made way back when on one of the most primitive set-ups.
As Defever recounts in the liner notes: “By age ten, I had a tape recorder and was using it to capture the sounds of nearby lakes, thunderstorms, and my older brother’s LP collection played at the wrong speeds. As a teenager, I got deep into all kinds of music - punk, new age, blues - and played bass in the high school jazz band, as well as studying Bach chorale harmonization and counterpoint. My first album consists of rhythm tracks made of loops of the next door neighbour raking leaves and shovelling the driveway with echoey guitars and vocals with lyrics about ghosts.”
Brilliant stuff from The Disciples. Highly Recommended.
