Robert M Robert M

Robert Montoya, or Robert M as he apparently prefers, has been active in the San Diego music scene for two decades. This disc marks his solo debut, and his creation is a billowy, albeit surreal, style of experimental noise music. Featuring a blend of tribal beats, shadowy samples and ethereal melodies, Montoya creates an enjoyably eerie listening experience. The tracks are long, ranging from the just over 14-minute "…so, you come here often? (1:40 AM)” to "Landing Craft” at five-plus minutes, but each one is complex and you will notice something new every time you throw this disc on. With intended respect going towards the complexities behind each track, this is also a great release for anyone looking to add some ominous background music to their collection. (Accretions)
