Description:

BlRR Recommended! first pressing of 1000 copies comes in a full-colour circle-cover. Second part of the "tjukurrpa-trilogy". (Transgredient Records TR-01b) (11/2001). Troum's second installment in their Tjukurrpa trilogy is self-evidently subtitled "Drones" following the equally droning, but far more placid "Harmonies" of Part One. Since their days in the prolific isolationist ensemble Maeror Tri, the two members of Troum continue to masterfully craft incredible dronework through densely processed sounds, mostly originating from guitars and bass, but have also used vocal chants, lutes, accordion, and percussion. "Tjukurrpa" translates as the physical, spiritual, and psychological state of dreamtime for the Australian Aboriginals, symbolizing Troum's intention to construct a cathartic transcendence through their hypnogogic drones. Such agendas may hedge themselves into the earnest flakiness of New Age-isms, but the dreams that Troum externalize through their music are incredibly grim, but not without their ashen beauty. Such nightly visions translate as an ever-shifting fog of shadowy sound, that billows, pulses, and fluctuates with the same fluid invasiveness of a wintery fog through a forest. Troum's success comes from the revelation of details within these miasmic drones, which at times are simple sonic whisps that decay through washes of digital reverb, and at others are massive harmonies which emphatically protrude from the ambience below. Troum's "Tjukrrpa: Part 2" stands as darker versions of the buried folk of Flying Saucer Attack or the sleepytime bliss of My Bloody Valentine. Very highly recommended work from one of the most consistently great bands working today!
