Concern - Living Wage - Digitalis LTD
Concern - Living Wage CS - Digitalis
Concern is something of a giant in my mind -- his mysterious drone music made from tape loops of real, live, vibrating instruments (dulcimer, piano, lap steel, etc.) never fails to stun with its depth and attention to texture. Emotionally, too, his pieces are deep, and steer clear of the usually traps of maudlin "ecstasy" or goth-y doominess. What I'm getting at is that what you hear on a Concern release is the work of person diligently following their own path and honing their craft, making music that is above trends and superficial distractions. Music that will last.
