Sunbather by Deafheaven
Released: May 2013
Label: Deathwish Inc.
This San Francisco duo-plus-drummer's widely praised second album may well vary its mournful wall of caterwaul more than most introverted ambient metal -- the architectural details beg for headphones. Shorter tracks shift the pace: a music-box lullaby for post-Tortoise post-rockers ("Irresistible"); film sound bites overcome by a vacuum cleaner that reveals acoustic strumming when unplugged ("Please Remember"); more dialogue collage into musique concrete ("Windows"). But yaaarghing panic attacks and criss-crossing feedback overtones in the longer ones are these guys' interminable calling card.
