Key of Shame- Threnody for Marcus Junius Brutus (2012)

Key of Shame
This two man group is a more sonically fused, abstract based band featuring Mark Morgan of Sightings.  The album is two long songs, with only tape loops (i believe) and guitar.  On first listen this would quickly be classified as noise, however I feel the title ambient suits it better.

The loops are longer, with a focus on space and depth.  Morgan's guitar stays true to the sound he is known for in Sightings, but coupled with the droning loops it creates a more haunting, sparce landscape of sound textures.

If you are wanting to venture in to the genre of noise, but do not like the typical wall of sound so often attributed to the genre, this is a great place to start.  I contacted Pat Murano of the group and he agreed to let me share the album with you on mediafire.  Thanks Pat!
Download and listen Here.  Hopefully a short interview will be following in the next few weeks.
