Gutta Percha - A Crawlspace Companion (2011)
/Ambient, Avant-garde, Sound art, Hauntology, Organic electronica, Dark ambient, Experimentalism, Noir, Musique concrète, Weird pop/
Comment: A Crawlspace Companion is the sophomore effort by the brothers Hibbett from Illinois, USA The 5-pieced set rings out as if an indicative approach of ambient music on getting aware of itself. However, it subsequently gets conscious of itself. It offers up warm yet haunting arcs of soundscapes being synergized with the samples from the scenes of ancient music and dark-hued orchestrated pieces. In fact, being adequately accented it evokes lots of memories with no certain addresses and hints at, however, reminding of the genuine works by James Kirby aka Caretaker. Just great.
