Crone - Endless Midnight Cover

Ex-Isis man returns, with a little help from his friends, of course...

While the apple mightn’t have fallen too far from the tree when it comes to personnel (fellow former Isis dudes Aaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer pop in to lend a hand while Aaron Turner provides artwork), Jeff Caxide finds himself in distinctly different sonic terrain with his first outing as Crone. Slow and ponderous as strange new bacteria drifting malevolently across a microscope slide, ‘Endless Midnight’ offers crystalline shimmers and mercurial drones that owe a debt to the Kranky roster but are perhaps a little too hurried at this stage to reach that label’s giddiest heights. Still lovely, though.
