Mongst – Philosophy & The Mirror Of Nature

An album by Vancouver local Jeremy Van Wyck featuring solo drone and noise work. Though he is perhaps better known as half of Aerosol Constellations and one quarter of Shearing Pinx, Jeremy has been producing work on his own (under is own name and as Mongst) for some years. Of course, he is best known to me as one of the friendly people taking my money on a weekly basis over at Audiopile.

The highlight of the album for me is the second track, which introduces a wavering feedback loop several minutes in that feels pleasantly familiar and cathartic, nicely tying together the rest of the track. The album as a whole is well-tempered and subtle, two traits often missing on DIY cassettes these days.
