Comment: these 20 minutes within just one composition reveal quite different angles and facets throughout the course. It starts off with low-end, buried frequencies to evolve into more masculine and labyrinthine, noise-drenched droning where guitars are being set up to be either static or ready to render its undulations in a minimal manner. I guess it is not the most primary case to puzzle out is it either more about experimental rock or ambient kind of music. I guess the borders between the styles started to blur stepwise after outings by the likes of Labradford, Slowdive, Flying Saucer Attack, Lycia, My Bloody Valentine. Later on, of course, Montrèal, Canadian ambient/drone/micronoise juggernaut Tim Hecker loaned some of the peripheral rock influences from these artists and synthesised them into his own work. Dead Gum`s Ghost Wise is like a clockwork which has been managed in the way to rev up with every minute. Indeed, in the middle part of the whole an abrasive, chord-changing guitar and Oriental-alike vowel effects alongside will begin to build on mind-boggling phantasmagorical threads and noisy terrains which almost chime like a converse, “minus-signed” symphonic work. Indeed, its influence is twofold – it is both aesthetically overwhelming and physically loud to stimulate one`s forehead and brain. In a word, it must be heard and shared being created by the Greek Panagiotis Spoulos.
