High Wolf uses loops, percussive sounds, fuzzy keyboards and obscure sunken melodies to create a ritual space that combines aspects of exotica, ethno-flux, drone and minimalism while skirting the kinda haunted forests of tone previously the domain of Spencer Clark and James Ferraro.
Chad Valley – the alias of Hugo Manuel – is part of the same Oxford collective, Blessing Force, that Fixers belong to, and there is a similar feeling of 60s music being given a shimmery modern electronic makeover. But maybe because there's just one of him he is able to give the project greater focus; there is no dilution, or sense of boxes being ticked, with Chad Valley – it's just one idea, gloriously stretched out over four tracks on his sublime self-titled debut EP; one long wave of luxuriant sound after another.
The solo universe of Long Beach psychonauts Magic Lantern's guitarist Cameron Stallones. Spanning Spacemen 3 garage cosmos, Starving Weirdos coastal séance, and a healthy stratosphere of pan-dimensional astral feedbackers, Sun Araw floats freely from form to formlessness in the blink of a third eye. A great journey into white light dirge and dead distortion blues. Creepster tropical psychedelic drone for more creepsters like yrself.
