For the eighth installment of Geographic North's You Can't Hide Your Love Forever series, Windsor for the Derby looks inward, harvesting their most fearless material yet. The band shares its roots with fellow Austin, TX classical post-rock duo Stars of the Lid, but has never quite delved fully into ambient territory like this.
The North-side's "Speaker Special" stretches their aural experimentation in looped, bass-heavy tones. A haunted organ introduces a distant melody like a spaced-out dirge. Cycling in a concise line fractured tone, the rhythm is pure, asphyxiating low-end.
"Heard Worse" comprises the South-side, trailing deeper into sonic elegance. Exploring realms of patiently-treated tape manipulation, raga and early-90s shoegaze, the band manages to find common ground between Terry Riley and Seefeel. Gloriously hypnotic. Desolately enchanting.
