Comment: I could remember for that I had had only good words about the St Louis, US-based duo Ou Où`s previous issue Geocities. The same could be assumed about Ou Ng which is similarly overwhelming in its aesthetics and epic touch. Similarly to Kinematik VKE`s Placental Drops From A Gestating Sky (2014, Dystimbria) it is often composed of elemental sonic “debris” (hisses, crackles, concrete sounds) which is magnified to get higher sublime reach and provide new colours through its alchemic approach. Of course, all the aforesaid elements are crossed with “ordinary” ambient developments and droning undulations to drift between the known and the unknown to uphold strain within compositions. In a nutshell, it is fabulous to spend a part of your life with these 26 minutes.
