Brand new one on the forever awesome Students Of Decay (who has now semi-joined forces with Experimedia), Already Gone being only the second release from the two En dudes (Maxwell August Croy & James Devane), making truly wonderful ambient drones. Lush and warm, slow swells in the midnight ocean glowing under the moonlight, golden wheat fields dancing as far as the eye can see, slow ether drift, floating in calm drones while every other sound is a million miles away, and a full side-long piece of exquisite beauty, the definition of a slow burner, relaxed electronics & strings effortlessly intertwined, a woven blanket of heavenly bliss, textured like a fine white sand at the edge of the sea, growing to a subtle, harmless, glorious wall of static. This is the real deal, true blue dreams. You want this on vinyl, obviously, and it’s limited, obviously, so hurry your ass up.
