DW006 Heavy Winged / Echoes of Silence
Across their first 3 full-length releases (plus several compilation appearances), the ex-NYC trio Heavy Winged have garnered a reputation for blowing out tuned-in eardrums with their urban retro-futurist DIY rampaging-giant-lizard noise rock. And deservedly so. Without giving up any raw power, Echoes of Silence focuses on another side of the group, one that works as much like a giant magnetic vortex as a nuclear-gargantua footstomp – hypnotically pulsating forward-motion drone drawing the listener inexorably further and deeper until they’re left, floating in space, whirrs of buzzing wattage their only living companion. Three tracks, 39 minutes.
