Track Of The Day :: Soft Walls - Guided Through
Like the ubiquitous MJ of Hookworms and producer extraordinaire (and who also mixed this track here), Faux Discx owner and Cold Pumas guitarist Dan Reeves is another whose name attached to anything warrants closer inspection with one's ears.
Reeves is back with his Pumas side project, Soft Walls, who release their second album, ‘No Time’, on July 29 via Chicago-based label Trouble In Mind. Lead track ‘Guided Through’ is everything you would expect from the man behind some of the best hypnotic drones this side of a US
reconnaissance mission. A zizzy five minutes of psych around which Reeves works a fuzzy guitar notes and trademark lo-tone vocals - ended on the best white noise scratch so far this year.
