Ryan Huber: Comoros CDr

Doomy drones and ticking loops from the prolific Massachusetts-based CDr-slinger. This one’s actually somewhat poppy in compared to some of his other albums, at least in terms of song lengths. There’s no 20 minute slowly evolving pieces here, most of these are around 2 or 3 minutes, with only two tracks reaching the 5 minute mark. There’s a slight bit more melody to some of these tracks (not too much though), and some tricky rhythmic patterns as well. The tracks don’t flow into each other as one work, so it feels like a collection of short sketches or snapshots. “Parapet” is a cool micro-groove. “Takfir” has a cool splittery effect near the end. “Cambridge in Flames” is the most straightforward 4/4 techno track. “Trinity” is the longest and most droney/ambient track, and it sneaks some shoegazey guitar in near the end. “Vrej” is also eerie and droney, then “Saladin” is more of a Stroboscopic Artefacts-type techno strack. Available from Bandcamp.
