Just waiting on the vinyl release of this awesome album. Got shipping confirmation from Alone Records just yesterday. An album made for wax!!

An excerpt:

It’s important to mention that this full-length came before the split, and with this album, it’s apparent that Yawning Sons aren’t simply involved in the Fennesz-esque surf ambient sound of the split. No, there is much more texture here than that, from keyboard work that brings out their spacey tendencies to the dark, proggy atmosphere of Ghostship – Deadwater that is made all the more pristine by the enchantingly minimal voice of Wendy Rae Fowler. The tribal percussion that the project implements is a strong element of their music, giving them another element to work with in regards to a beach-side theme, of course around a fire. The effects-drenched guitars are also ever present once more, though they take on many different characteristics through their sometimes harmoniously droning, sometimes overly vibrato approach. There is minimal experimentation to be found as well, especially on “Whales in Tar” which the project performed flawlessly by including an unearthly, spherical droning background of lush sound that gives rise to the mournful wailing of the guitar that has been effected to mimic the sound of whales. The only down-side to the release may perhaps be Mario Lalli’s vocal performance in “Meadows”. Of course, that’s not to say that his voice isn’t well-suited for music as it has a good tone overall, but for this record it was distracting due to its rough, Bruce Springsteen style vocals. It just wasn’t suited for this type of music and gave the track an entirely different feel.
