Purling Hiss, From Pitchfork; 
Public Service Announcement
[Woodsist; 2010]

7.4
"Tracks like "Porch Dude/Slight Return" begin with a perfectly normal riff. But then the tape wobbles and the music sounds like an accident that’s been reigned in and controlled. The jams are given shape and then ripped apart by recording technique. And these days, when an album sounds this imperfect, you have to assume there’s a reason. It’s 2010, and recording pristine songs takes little more than a good mic and some pirated editing software. It’s up to artists to recreate primitive, raw recordings artificially, and Purling Hiss uses this rawness as a dominant instrument. Without these smudges, Public Service Announcement could play out as an off-kilter, potentially flat version of recycled AM radio gold. With these imperfections, though, it sits comfortably beside other sonic innovators with a vital pop music heart: Ariel Pink, John Maus, and even at times a stony version of Phil Elverum’s warm, all encompassing ambient hiss….

True Widow, From Pitchfork;
As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth
[Kemado; 2011]

7.4 


”[…]But there’s a lot more to this band than a generous nod toward their slowcore antecedents. For one thing, True Widow’s guitars are much louder and grittier, with a vast bone-crunching slab of murky distortion laid thick over the snail-paced grooves they settle into. They’ve even taken a stab at coining their own genre, “stonegaze,” to describe this sound, although it’s perhaps unwise to assume this is anything other than an inter-band joke. Some of the titles (“Blooden Horse”, “Skull Eyes”, “Doomseer”) suggest material that is far darker than the wares actually on offer here, but it’s clear that True Widow get their kicks from throwing a spanner in the works on occasion. It’s there in the mysterious, over-long, but strangely fitting title of the record, and in the mix-up of Josh Homme-style churning riffage circa the first Queens of the Stone Age album and the floaty, angelic vocals of bassist Nikki Estill on the opening “Jackyl”.

That song is a fine demonstration of this band’s complete mastery of control— the seething guitar sound of Dan “D.H.” Phillips makes it feel like they might spin off into recklessness at any moment, but they never do. Instead, True Widow slump into ennui and remain locked down there for the duration. The majority of the vocals are sung by Phillips, who enters the fray with “Blooden Horse”, which compliments Estill’s cooing with pangs of foreboding and cold-sweat rumination. The lyrics are wrung out with the same shaved-down discipline as the music, where nothing ever topples over into over-wrought emoting. Despite this rigid adherence to restraint, much of this material proves to be emotionally affecting— Phillips’ work peaks on “NH”, which plays out like a slo-mo dip into the bleak blues of Mudhoney’s “If I Think” and Codeine’s “D”, with great lashes of poignancy added via Estill’s heavily reverbed backing vocals.”
