Landing Landing

(Geographic North)
Formed in 1998, this New Haven-based trio provides Connecticut with an ethereal blend of genres such as Krautrock, shoegaze and space rock. After six years of working on their latest album, the culmination of effort has paid off.  The shimmering synth dreamscapes and ornate guitars make me feel like I’m drifting through memories of surreal places. Landing creates gorgeous, transcendent ambience excellently with their uniquely mixed sound that shouldn’t be relegated to a single genre. Right from the beginning, “Finally” builds a massive wall of electronic glow to back the calm vocals, brisk drums and spacey guitar sounds. Another instant standout, the faster-tempo “Heart Finds The Beat,” emphasizes on nebula-echoing bass, airy female vocals and numerous other reverb effects for an atmosphere to get lost in. One more I particularly enjoyed is the very warm-sounding closer “Native Land,” with numerous “ahhhh” vocals used as a multilayered instrument, reminding me of Sigur Rós. For maximum effect, this album should be played extra-loud.

Lee Ranaldo Between The Times & The Tides

Being one of Sonic Youth’s founding members, Ranaldo has taken a surprising turn on his latest album. It’s been promoted as his “first rock record,” which is fitting due to its pure, very accessible sound of… well, rock (specifically of the alternative/indie persuasion.) Even with the absence of avant-garde, he constructs downright great songs without abandoning his roots: his strong voice combined with his glowing guitar licks makes me imagine R.E.M. if they drew inspiration from Sonic Youth. The powerfully delivered seven-minute “Xtina As I Knew Her” serves as an excellent example of this: the somber, overcast atmosphere is crafted with layers of guitars that aren’t afraid to wander into a bit of controlled-yet-trippy dissonance. “Fire Island (Phases)” incorporates a huge variety of multi-tempo passages, drawing influences from not only Sonic Youth-style alt-rock, but also steel guitar-based country rock and 70s hard rock, among others. Another example of the steel guitar sounding refreshingly rich is on the longing acoustic ballad “Stranded,” with easily relatable lyrics (“I’ll be right there when you call / you know I love you best of all…”)
