mwvm: rotations (Silber)
release: September 25, 2007
style: shadowy minimal ambient
similar: other silber artists, NPR's Hearts of Space, 2001: a Space Odyssey
rating: **** If you haven't yet experienced what a guitar can do outside the conventional thinking box, rotations is a place to begin. UK artist mwvm plays with guitars that produce otherworldly ambient textures that you could swear are computer electronics and synth. The UK artist has worked with guitar effects since the mid-90s and finally releases this debut. Goody, there is much to explore here. The coolest thing about rotations is that the tracks blend together seamlessly. Mind expanding for sure. -Kenyon
