Pelt – “True Vine”

Somewhere between the Eastern frenzy of Shalabi Effect and the supernatural introspection of Charalambides lies Pelt, whose string-and-feedback drones and acoustic soundscapes are difficult to pin down in any way. “True Vine” is my favorite of their long tracks (though there are several good ones), with its menace and beauty in perfect solution. It’s like watching the world burn, through a silk veil.
