The Telescopes

 

The Telescopes:
Auditory Illusions

Written by: Corey Tate

The Telescopes: one part continuous drone, one part space-country folk ambient stargazing. I feel like I've wandered into a strange commune of hippies that have been off in the pastoral countryside for decades, playing their mystical music at the edge of the woods. If you go out on the summer solstice, you can find them at sunset, at the edge of the woods, playing this ambient and organic music.

These guys definitely get high approval for cultivating their own sound (I'm trying to stick to the commune metaphor without being cheesy). In the world of ambient noise/drone music it's easy to just slide off into sounds without actually providing a framework. The best ambient drone always has some form of loose structure to it. The excitement on Auditory Illusions comes in how The Telescopes walk back forth in that structure. Anyone can be an abstract artist, but to do abstract art with context is really hard. Try it some time and you'll see.

The strings are a nice touch. They provide a rich tone and backbone to the flute, guitar, singing and harmonies. If this music can't chill you out you might need help. Oh yeah, there's also a video too! It's a limited run of 500 - get em' hot off the press.



RATING: ***** 4 out of 5 stars
