Artist: WINTER DRONES
Title: Blood In The Coffin
Format: CD
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Leon Dufficy is primarily known as guitarist in the hippie-jam outfit, Hush Arbors, but now he steps into his own as the driving force behind Winter Drones. Sounding like the perfect combination of fuzzed-out ambient drift, shoegaze swirl and propulsive pop sensibilities, Winter Drones have slowly gained attention in their native U.K. with a handful of obscure CD-R/cassette releases and compilation appearances. Earlier this year, the bands debut album, Blood In The Coffin, came out as a limited-edition tape on U.K. micro-label Sexbeat Records. While legions of artists are mining the ambient style, Dufficy stands out because of his ability to develop his soundscapes, infusing them with a touch of melody to impart a sense of emotion. Songs like the lead-off track, Watch Your Eyes, set the mood perfectly while Bongs Dream shows Dufficys intuitive understanding that the perfectly weighted note/chord can add tremendous emotional resonance to an atmospheric piece. But Dufficy isnt some common nu-age denizen and the album really shines when the drums come in and the band rocks out. Winnie Coopers Bones and Two Long Weeks Part 2 find Dufficy perfectly capable of crafting memorable songs that stick with the listener. The albums centerpiece, Stiff Wizard, serves as a thesis statement for the entire album. Over ten minutes, the track starts with flanged/fuzzed guitars swishing about and sounding like jet engines on a runway. As the piece builds towards take-off, a simple radar-like melody begins pinging and the song takes flight when the drums and driving guitar chords launch in -- a perfect microcosm of the whole record." -Weird Forest
