I've come to expect nothing but quality from LOR and this is no exception. The layering of sound textures is amazing and the percussion builds a sonic quilt that wraps you warmly. Completely captivating.
Far Rainbow create vast neo-psychedelic slabs of gradually developing sound. "Somewhere Out There Was The Wave" is their first CD release (following an acclaimed series of cassettes on Zero Wave) and perhaps their darkest and purest release so far- a single expanding piece created from murky drones and loops and ominous percussion, the work has enormous dynamic control and intensity that sustains interest for its full duration.
