Drones, vocal murmerings, and a heavy does of strangeness comprise this ep from this Tokoyo based group. Sort of dark ambient, but a bit too weird.


Ellende give us a tone pulse and wave, adding layers and some notes, a scrape and guitar. Then they play with the varispeed, slowing and speeding it up, synths notes in there. A high shimmering swarm, a musical twanging, lies over the varying base, a whistly shimmer that sounds like a bowed saw. There is an eerie mood. A change to rumbling roll with long low tones and bloops, voicelike noodles building. A bussing that has speech rhythms with a dark rumble under bleak and troubled, wavering being used again. A slow ambient drone takes the foreground while a distant chatter drops, becoming more equal, then easing. A bubbling synth and tingles takes over, some warbled tones, a drifting melodic, mysterious long metal and voice tones, dronal to fade. Intense short works that flow like thaw fed rivers. - Ampersand Etc.
