Aaron Dilloway of Wolf Eyes & Jason LescalleetPopeth
"Aaron Dilloway and Jason Lescalleet worked on through the night until the sun came up, and the results are presented on Popeth, their riveting second full-length LP. Few artists exhibit such routinely impressive understanding of loops not as mere repetitions, but as possibilities for tectonic movement. Their music evolves and devolves simultaneously within the use of these patterns. They also realize the possibilities inherent in a host of experimental techniques. Their methods are not simply demonstrative ends, but tools for the exploration of new vistas.
The nest, a recurring theme in their collaborative work, is usually a protective place, a place of comfort. But in the Dilloway/Lescalleet milieu the nest is a place where protection and comfort fray and break open. You didn't come here for protection or comfort, though.
The first side, "Black Mountain," is a chain of glacial swirls. Icy wheels of sound are punctuated by warbling tape and a ghostly voice. Flip the record and you'll find "Western Nest" and "Ewch I Gysgu Popeth," two tracks which push the idea of simplistic structure to the limits of its vitally complicated ends. This is the sound of looking at a spiral staircase, or a clothesline, or a power line, or the center line on the highway. It's the result of deeply electric consciousness.
There is a gap in the assembly, a terrible and magnificent peace, a true taste of the passage of time, a measure of the hours and their shifting conditions. It's their most perfectly realized report yet. The album is a statement of confidence, an assertion of purpose with the assured possibility of purposelessness." Matt Krefting, Holyoke, MA 2014.
