Alexander Tucker "Guild Of The Asbestos Weaver (Thrill Jockey)"
I have never been an asbestos weaver, let alone in the need of a guild dedicated to just such a craft (I try not to light my books on fire without the need of such a group, thank you very much! But if I was such a person I’d be pretty chuffed that Alexander Tucker dedicated his new album Guild Of The Asbestos Weaver (Thrill Jockey) to me and my brethren. An expansion to Tucker’s already wide breadth of sounds that lies somewhere between modern experimental electronic music and modern classical music. Here we find Tucker dropping the word “Dreampop” in the PR for the album, and he certainly isn’t wrong. So check out the dreamy, surreal “Energy Alpha.”
