Solar Bridge

Starting out in 2005, performing live sets using only television sets as sound sources, Emeralds has grown in recent years into a monster of HEAVY improvised drone using analog synths and masterfully-effected guitar. Born out of the Midwest scum-noise scene, these guys have taken the intense heaviness of their Midwest brethren to a place that is entirely their own. They have replaced the creepy atmosphere and abrasive harsh noise of their peers with a very different, though equally intense blast of cosmic drone power! Hanson Records is proud to announce Emeralds' Solar Bridge, the trio's first full-length album after numerous cassette and CD-R releases on such labels as American Tapes, Chondritic Sound, and the band's own imprints Wagon and Gneiss Things. The album opens with the side-long 'Magic' where the band builds a quiet drone into an extreme thick saw blade of swirling noise as beautiful as it is menacing. The flip is yet another side-long journey titled 'The Quaking Mess,' a track that stabs your brain with fluttering sparks of synthesized needles before relaxing you into a Göttschingesque dream state while slowly bringing you back to earth with an electronic wave of molten rumble. Fans of the smooth tones of New Age Of Earth-era Ash Ra Tempel and the buzzing thick drones of Throbbing Gristle's Heathen Earth should take note, as Emeralds may be their new source for electronic drugs. CD pressed in 1000 digipak copies.
