BLACK CLOUDS Dreamcation Limited Gold Vinyl LP

Washington D.C.’s post-rock and metal experimentalists Black Clouds release their sophomore effort (and Collect Records debut) - a significantly different kind of record. That sense of doom, once mined for its power, is more effectively harnessed for a nuanced energy - the darkness curbed just enough to let the light in - and the result is alternately aggressive and ambient, often in the same song, and sometimes in the same part: “Carcosa,” for one, takes equal cues from funeral and ascension, and “Some Of Us Are Meant To Disappear” somehow pummels you into a warm hug. A smart and measured progression, Black Clouds finds itself at their most introspective on Dreamcation, and if this album’s finalé eschews language altogether for a wash of subtle chords and a blissfully ecstatic drone, it’s only because - perhaps - everything is going to be OK after all. Produced by J. Robbins (Clutch, Against Me!, Dismemberment Plan) and mixed/mastered by Chris Common (Isis, Mars Volta, Pelican, Minus the Bear). For fans of: Deafheaven, Explosions in the Sky, Caspian
