There’s something about owls that seem to inspire drone artists. Barn Owl, Deaf Center’s album Owl Splinters. Well, that’s about it, but my point’s gained a bit more weight since I discovered Moscow’s Twilight Owls. A solo guitarist armed only with a bank of pedals, his touch is considerably lighter than the aforementioned heavy hitters, but his lilting, psych-tinged compositions are just as affecting. Here’s a couple of tracks for you, as well as a mesmeric video for his song, Wakonda Auga. It was made by Lautremont RA Studios, whose other clips are well worth checking out.
