Invisible White by Ancestors
Released: Jun 2011
Label: Tee Pee Records
Three long songs, stretched to edges of dolor, hope and/or relaxation by low-tempo keyboards, low-crawling guitar buzzes, low-flying bird chirps and intermittently emitted low-pitch, low-resolution sighs about travelling long distances. The effect hints at instrumental shoegaze metal, but when organs turn processional -- briefly in the seven-minute-each title cut and "Dust," then rather majestically in the increasingly hefty 14-minute "Epilogue" -- you can detect traces of bygone Procol Harum or Iron Butterfly, or maybe some obscure band on SST in the mid-'80s or Man's Ruin in the early '00s.
