Ensemble Pearl: Ensemble Pearl | Advance | Pitchfork

There's an option at the top of the page that looks like a waving flag to switch tracks. Possible the most pretentious way of describing drone music as well, "Ensemble Pearl, led by Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley, release their self-titled debut album on March 19 via Drag City. The quartet features Eyvind Kang, Timba Harris, and ex and current members of Boris, Ghost, White Heaven, and Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter. Describing Ensemble Pearl's style, their label states: "amplified rock drops and ripples, auras radiate and fade away into cloudforms, through which lightning bolts."

I'm listening to it now and since I dig drone-y, boring music this suits me fine but I'm sure the majority out there won't be thrilled by it

So despite being led by Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley, this shit gets really ambient like Stars of the Lid/Brian Eno type shit and all I can wonder is how the fuck this group came to be :lol: Seriously, they're not polar opposites but the ability to go from one to the other between tracks is just ridiculous

Can't say that I hate it. But definitely need to be in the right mood to listen to it. Liked what I heard though.

Much like what I use most of my music for, this worked out really well while doing gesture and figuring drawings for my Advanced Life class so I'm biased but I know there's a slim majority (7SoH) that also don't mind long droney stuff and ambient music
