Brooklyn's Sarah "Noveller" Lipstate and Montreal's Eric "Thisquietarmy" Quach join forces here for a long-player containing four meditative duets. The two guitarists' style seems almost tailor-made for a collaboration such as this, since both of them specialise in slow-oozing drone'n'tone compositions which mix a shimmering angelic lightness with subtle drawn-out sadness.
It doesn't take a scientist to figure out what'll happen when these two come together. Drones, that's what. Achingly beautiful, economically placed, lazily drifting concordant drones, blurred and woozy, split into four passages titled 'Reverie I', 'Reverie II', 'Reverie III' and (no prizes for guessing) 'Reverie IV'. Perhaps I am being a little flippant but that's only because the chances of this record being anything but the silky therapeutic ambient drift I'm listening to were, frankly, slim. This is lovingly constructed, patient and ultimately totally gorgeous. Plus there's a picture of brutalist architecture on the sleeve. Win-win.
