Arc Two

The follow up to their last self-titled album, simply entitled Two. Never much for nomenclature, the tracks are simply numbered. This time around the band seems more aggressive and the pieces more satisfying, perhaps simply because there are more tracks. The album is based on two all-improvised live shows, yet the members have jammed together for so long that there seems to be structure surfacing on these pieces. Two is comprised of guitar, djembe and drums emulating a traditional percussive African sound harnessed by dark guitar loops. For those who tend to the darker atmospheres rendered with skill that inspire epic daydreams, this is your album. (Mathbat)
