Jefre Cantu-Ledesma’s 2010 LP Love Is A Stream was one of the stand-out drone albums of last year, a blockade of nullifying multicoloured noise that belied some heartbreakingly tender melodies underneath – if you could actually locate them through all the scuzz and hiss, that is. So, for anyone interested in the kind of experimental, immersive soundscapes that he’s such a master of, the news of his impending follow-up release (on March 22nd) should come as really great news. Here’s a four track streamed teaser from Students of Decay Records to blow away those Monday cobwebs. NB: must be played LOUD.
