New immersive album from Liam McGeorge's (D.S.W.A.C.V.) excellent Shurayuki-Hime project. Usually working in a pretty blistering HNW mode, "Yukibango" sees the project veering away from the caustic violence of previous works and exploring a more meditative and gentle mode of noise. The pieces here are dripping with detail and depth but are incredibly unique in their pursuit of a softer space. It's incredibly minimalistic and lovely; the six hour long pieces here sound like various rainstorms captured in different locales. A masterful exercise in thoughtful composition, truly relaxing to listen to and immerse yourself in. Definitely one for headphones and high volumes.
Packaged in a DVD case and released in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies. $30 ppd. in the United States, $43 rest of world.
