Pluramon's debut, PICK UP CANYON, starts with a random, assemblage of an intro, but once "Noh" starts, it all starts to make sense, as the ambient drift carries a vaguely East Asian edge in its instrumentation, all before the drums start clanging in. "Phantom" is much quieter, with a single guitar pluck amongst the spaciousness, while "Self" lets a buzz continue beneath the radar as the guitar riff and slow drum rhythm echo above it. "Skala," on the other hand, is almost ambient, with its reversed tones and thrums, leading into the waves of feedback on "Peak." One of the longest tracks here, "Planet," similarly starts off ambient, but grows in strength and volume in a classic post-rock vein before dropping off into complete silence, a pattern that's repeated by the even-slightly-longer "Teental." I think the album, as a whole, could have done with more focus, however, but it's still a pleasant listen.
