Comment: indeed, by now I decided to review two issues by an artist within one comment because I am listening to a tape which physically includes both of them being issued by Tallinn, Estonian underground imprint Trash Can Dance (a print-run of 36 tapes; soon in next days it will be officially announced for sale). Trent Hawkins is the pseudonym of a guy from Tartu, Estonia who is also known as the drummer of a local stoner rock group, Smõuk. However, substantial guitar riffs and oppressive psychedelic noodling of desert rock is jettisoned for floating synthesisers and ticking rhythms which are up there to depict something otherworldly and beatific. I like the artist's pure aesthetic of Kosmische Musik where all the elements are enjoyably aligned to constitute a logical whole with enchanting space between and around. It might slightly remind of some works by M. Geddes Gengras under Umor-Rex where one can discern similar perceptions of mathematical relations and measures between the establishing sonic elements. Furthermore, it is as pristine as one counterpart could be against lousy aspects surrounding us in our every day's life. A sort of music for escapists. Similarly to the American musician's soundscapes the recent one is also the grower. At first glance it might seem a little bit lightweight and even superficial but it is the deceptive impression. At first one needs to take some time for warm-up to comprehend this hippy of ambient music (the description by the label boss Gert "Trash" Moser). Or maybe not, though. All in all, both of them are fairly fine ones. After listening to these ones I am sure you will be listening to Trent Hawkins third issue (3) either (also available in tape format on Trash Can Dance).
