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.
In a new interview with Wondering Sound, the Blink-182 man opens up about those crucial years of the band, adding that their label would "make it look like we really were some kind of erotic boy band or some shit".
