As elegant riffs collide with sudden monstrosities, the duo known as Spangle Makers combine various amounts of despair and jubilants on all their Black Cottage releases.
Foam And Fret
Their latest Black Cottage release, Foam And Fret, explores a more ambient terraine than their previous efforts...but the familiar agitation remains.
An abrasive guitar meets a delicately played piano. A sweet, well-tamed guitar becomes fraught while stumbling upon a nest of drunken synthesizers, all with dreamy and nightmarish results.
Harold Lloyd meets Harold Budd.
The combination of effects-laden piano, effects-laden guitar and effects-laden effects mixed with the occasional lack of focus makes this a great atmospheric soundtrack for any crisis.
