Comment: soon it is the end of a year and it is time to count the best albums of the year of 2016. I do not hesitate to denote Sunset Wrecks' 7-track issue Salvaged as one of the best among the best ones. It is an overwhelming one by its form and substance, by its appearance and emotional burden. More profoundly, shoegazing meets doom rock meets ambient meets art rock meets post-metal. It is full of static magic or at least restricted within the aforementioned borders to progress slowly and rise to the full-fledged status. It is a fine example of how beautification and benediction in music can be reached through more gloomy and glowering ways. It might be it is the best pad to reach it. For instance, listen to the mind-provoking start and a spaced-out yet tenaciously stomping bold rack at Homeless where contrary elements are spliced with one another in a seamless mode. The next notch Salvaged And Reclaimed wakes itself up sweeping partly spacey dust and exploiting more (post-) metal inflected verve and even a krautrock-drenched motorik impetus. If trying to describe it in the so-called juggernaut terms, the issue is aesthetically a mediate appearance between My Bloody Valentine, and Lycia, between Labradford, and Bark Psychosis yet exceling frequently at better qualities and more climactic moments than the aforesaid indie and experimental rock legends. Bewildering and magnificent. The project is led by Jarek Leskiewicz (Naked On My Own, and Martin Anderson (Dopedrone).
