Windy & Carl - We Will Always Be
By Andrea AyotteMichigan-based husband and wife duo Carl Hultgren and Windy Weber release their fifth full-length album, We Will Always Be, on Kranky. Windy & Carl are primarily known for their deep, post-shoegaze, ambient guitar drones and have contributed to defining Kranky's quiet energy for well over a decade. We Will Always Be showcases eight dense and lengthy drone soundscapes that contradict the mood set by the sunflower on the album's cover. "Looking Glass" is a euphoric, floating, reverb-drenched guitar track, with gentle, resonating layers highlighting the duo's masterful restraint. "The Smell of Old Books" is a delicate composition, with sparse, beautiful chiming bells combined with rich, looping guitar rhythms. "Fainting in the Presence of the Lord" closes the album with a 19-minute, heavily filtered guitar track, making you feel like you are floating through thick, condensed fog. Windy & Carl deliver yet another significant and sublime release that's perfect for late night listening.
