When I think about how great Yellow Swans were, I am continually impressed at how Pete Swanson and Gabriel Saloman’s post-YS solo work keeps upping the ante. “Movement Building Vol. 1” is refined. Saloman’s ethereal soundworld is full of dangling harmonies and stretched, transcedent melodies. As the heartbeat-inspired rhythm gently fades in toward the latter half of this excerpt, a sense of excitement and payoff builds. Beyond this snippet a river of catharsis awaits. Stunning.
Movement Building Vol. 1 will be out on October 17th via Shelter Press. A second volume will come later and both will eventually be collected onto a single CD. Hurrah.
