Recording as Loscil, the Vancouver musician Scott Morgan has released albums with themes based around subjects as varied as physics and submarines. His fourth full length is mostly concerned with the atmosphere, with titles like "Halcyon," "Mistral," and "Steam." Loscil uses treated acoustic and electric instruments, as well as synthesizers, to create full-sounding, rounded tones, which he punctuates with microscopic static clicks, matching mood to title with pieces like the unsettled "Rorschach" and the ethereal "Zephyr."
Loscil: Krista Michelle Marshall, Stephen Wood (guitar); Jason Zumpano (Fender Rhodes piano); Josh August Lindstrom (xylophone). SOME LAST COPIES OF THIS EXCELLENT ALBUM!
