HN ♥ Anti-Gravity Bunny ♥ Faures

The Anti-Gravity Bunny blog is one of the best blogs around frankly - we love how there is no mincing of words, and how incredibly forthright and to the heart their words are about music they love. They’ve been such great supporters of ours and really understand the noisier spectrum where other reviewers or blogs just don’t spend the time to absorb. Here’s what they very kindly said about the Faures album:

Faures is a new project bringing together René Margraff (aka PILLOWDIVER), Samuel Landry (aka LE BERGER), and Fuzz Lee (aka ELINTSEEKER), all three of them being totally righteous droners on their own, each from a different continent, and together forming up like a motherfuckin Drone-tron, unstoppable with their perfect mellowtones. Continental Drift was inspired by this quote from Hans Cloos in regards to continents & tectonics, “It let them float and drift, break apart and converge. Where they broke away, cracks, rifts, trenches remain; where they collided, ranges of folded mountains appear.” And Faures spun the quote to instead reference sound, letting loose a massive & delicate record of shifting glacial air, breaking open vents to unleash monumental walls of bliss and then filtering out the overwhelming static to leave you with a subtle soft ambient that’s deeply intimate and full of emotion, inaudible clicks intertwined with layered minimalism, resonant piano, and mournful strings, this is some divine head-filling drone that soothes all forms of beast, Home Normal proving yet again to be one of the most reliable sources for drone records of the highest fucking quality.
