New Clouds

White Rainbow

Kranky, 2009

Now here’s an album I’ve loved for years and finally own on vinyl. Probably the best White Rainbow album, and yet also the most accessible, especially next to a lot of his self-released content.

The first track in particular is really great, has a nice build that takes a long time to get where it’s going but isn’t boring at any point, and a nice cooldown about which I would say the same.

The vocals are really nice and sound at home on each track, as are the percussion and guitars. Also the synths. Actually, it all sounds well together, that’s the important bit.
