Distant Animals - Lines [Hallow Ground Promo]

Put on the circuit via the experimental music outfit Hallow Ground on May 15th, 2k18 is "Lines", the most recent album by UK-based artist Daniel Alexander Hignell who's using his artistic moniker Distant Animals for this two track longplay release. Following a well-intricate concept based on Hignell's work in the field of social studies and theory his musical result comes out as the A-side track "Pure Drone" which indeed is a slowly moving, minimalist bass drone affair turning into more of a pulsating entity which exists purely on its own, a confined sonic realm which, as part of the albums magic as well as conceptual approach, can be imputed to several sources one might recognize from his or her everyday life. On the flip we find "Line Made By Walking", the second tune on this album which follows a more eerie and dystopian path, weighing in a desolate ColdAmbient transmission from a faraway future, interrupted by swampy echoes, unexplicable clicks and various, highly distorted electrial buzzes, flickering like broken street lights in a dead end alley whilst the last functional robotic devices emit the occasional bleeps and beeps before fading into the brooding, everlasting silence that is eternity. Intense!
