(Twenty Hertz)

Even if the first “Dronework” in this (hopefully long) series lasts less than 20 minutes, I warmly suggest the use of “repeat” button to enjoy hours of pure pleasure. By now I don’t need to recommend you Paul Bradley anymore – just read my other reviews and visit his website – but I still have to talk about his music’s almost scary depth. This particular record is a perfect example of how a dying genre like dark/ambient/drone could be revitalized with the right touch of magic by someone who can lift you mid-air with just a low vibration spiralling around. These sounds will have you concentrated yet relaxed almost to the point of abandon, while everything negative has flown out of your body. It’s a lesson in economy to dozens of self-believing sacerdotal loopers.
