Paa Annandalii - Altars [2015]

This massive release is actually 2 separate albums. I would be very surprised to find a better drone release than this for 2015.
Altars I is reminiscent of the Mohave Triangles sound. I instantly thought of Sky Limousine and Josh Burke as well. It is psych-drone done well. Very well.
Altars II begins in silence and builds like a Steve Roach piece. A slow build to some very warm swells, then before you become aware of it, it's gotten dark. The ending is loud and noisy and massive.

I really don't think I could talk up this album enough.

Paa Annandalii - Yen Pox [2015]

Robert Thompson is a friend that I have mentioned multiple times before. His previous projects Mohave Triangles and REALMS have been recognized as some of the best psych drone to come out of 2008-2010.
He is one half of Quartz Safari, who have released 2 tapes on Rotifer and Fadeaway, and plan on releasing a 3rd tape soon.
Paa Annandalii was birthed out of the death of Mohave Triangles, and his first release Transhumance brings back memories of feeling like I was traveling on a spaceship when I rode the late night train home.

Yen Pox was recorded in 2012, and is the first release on Robert's label Celestial Paths Ltd. 
The tape is an ultra low-fi 3rd generation recording of droning guitar and synth with an overlay of hypnotizing guitar doodles. Simplistic and patient, it is a definitive ambient piece. It doesn't demand my attention, and yet I find myself getting lost in the track without noticing.
