TITLE / format : First Tone - CD
LABEL: Drunken Fish
REVIEWER: Ron K.
rhBand, purveyors of sound textures via analog drones, return for their second full-length release. Four long pieces that slowly evolve and pile electronic waves one on top of the other while still remaining somewhat static and still. I'd call it "ambient" but that might imply that it's meant to be played in background and ignored. If you try to "bliss out" to this stuff the louder sections will most certainly screw up your meditation and give you the heart attack that you deserve. I heard somewhere that these guys hail from my hometown of Venice, California. It's about time we had a decent band!
