Aidan Baker & Jakob Thiesen – A Bout De Souffle (ltd. cd)
“A Bout De Souffle is a 54 min Collaboration between Aidan Baker (who is also known as Nadja together with Leah Buckareff) and Percussionist Jakob Thiesen (who recently joined baker live on stage to play live drums). Aidan baker is famous for his experimental guitar music. This time things are a bit different. You wont find the typical Aidan Baker drone stuff here, but instead both men created an incredible journey through the fields of krautrock, Psychedelic and drone music. The Percussion of Jakob Thiesen adds a certain deepness to Bakers guitar explorations were he also uses bass and acoustic guitar to build an mind blowing album full of surprises and wonderful melodies.” -Waterscape Records
Sean Reardon – A Collection of Origins (ltd. cd)
“A shimmering and glitchy mix of guitar manipulations made between 2007 and 2008.” -Waterscape Records
Peter Wright – Burning a Hole in the Sun (ltd. 3″ mini-cdr)
“Peter Wright should not be a stranger for those who are into guitar drone music. So its my pleasure to bring you his newest release as a 3″ cd-r. Burning A Hole In The Sun is not what you expect, when you read Peter’s Name. This one is far away from beeing soft and cuddly. Instead, its a slowly progressing guitar drone that starts low in volume and ends on the other side of the peak meter. Really noisy and aggressive stuff on this release. Highly recommended.” -Waterscape Records
Apalusa – Live from the Dry Valley’s (ltd. 3″ mini-cdr)
“Live From The Dry Valley’s is an almost 19 minute long guitar drone. Starting really slow just to catch your attention while it is building more and more until it reaches the climax which is a wonderful mesmerising layer of guitar tones with tremolo effect on it. In some way this could be compared to Fear Falls Burning, just with the exception, that Apalusa is hiking on the bright and warm side of the mighy guitar drone. Highly recommended to all lovers of the guitar drone” -Waterscape Records
True Colour of Blood – The Cave of Knowlege (ltd. 3″ mini-cdr)
“Eric Kesner is the man behind True Colour of Blood. The Cave of Knowledge is a 22 min drone. Kestner perfectly combines dark ambient moments with minutes of pure clarity. Like most of the Waterscape releases this is a pure blessing for headphone trips into a world of shimmering guitar drones and ambient soundscapes.” – Waterscape Records
Jason Sloan – Static (ltd. 3″ mini-cdr)
“STATIC is a 22 min piece that is divided into two movements. The first is comprised of mostly organ sounds with a small amount of guitar, and the second is guitar only, which builds eventually into a wall of pure sound. One may be heavily reminded of Steve Roach’s approach to space music. Highly recommended for space music fans and fans of shoegaze.
