Italian duo Andrea Marutti and Andrea “Ics” Ferraris bring their first full-length collaboration in a very nice wallet style cardboard packaging. The duo mention dusk till dawn drones in their press sheet and that sounds about right. Slow moving as a sun entering a skyline, where a guitar splinters in is the same way a beam of light is fractured when hitting a cloud or the grass. It’s not a difference, but the same part of the rising.
Four tracks in just under an hour, the tundra feeling of movement is a task to endure while sitting in front of a cd player, but I imagine it’s quite different in a live setting. “The Spring that Never Comes” is fashioned with a certain amount of dread, certainly matching the feelings of a long, bitter winter and the desire for its end. “Light at 4:48” references to “4.48 Psychosis” which apparently takes its name from the most common time for suicide, but I have no idea where they got that proof. For an album of all guitars and treatments and shrouded in drone minimalism, it does tend to wear on you with the lack of range, but it’s pretty good. 5/10 -- Andrew Murdock Livingston (11 November, 2009)
