It’s hard to imagine that 2011 will see many finer releases
Within the world of dark ambient, there are few artists whose releases are awaited with the anticipation of Montreal, Canada musician Tim Hecker’s and thankfully, ‘Ravedeath, 1972’ does not disappoint. In fact, from the shimmering pulses of opener ‘The Piano Drop’ to the tripartite ‘Into The Air’’s bleached washes of sound and the spiraling shards of noise which run through ‘Hatred Of Music’, this could well rank as his finest work to date. Sure, it might lack the narrative arc of 09’s ‘An Imaginary Country’, but it’s hard to imagine that 2011 will see many finer releases, of any genre.
