Aidan Baker I Fall Into You

This free verse poet, erotica writer and musician has combined his strengths to form a deep, sensuous and libidinously charged recording. Aidan’s guitar drone work is the driving force of the album, supplemented with vocals, tape loops and string loops. In true spacy ambient fashion the tracks here range from a minute to almost half an hour. In the midst of guitar loops and layered textural effects are fragments of Baker’s erotic poetry read by himself and Naomi Okabe that are finger licking good. The mood on the album is rather brooding and slow at times, but also has its build-up moments as well. One of Aidan’s great talents is to create a dense, lush, varied sound with the most pared down, limited means. Who knew that guitars alone harboured such orchestral sounds? (Public Eyesore)
