AMN Reviews: Sounding the Deep – Return to the Quiet (Sonic Meditations)

Sonic Meditations is the small home to big, celestial music by Justin Wright´s Expo 70 and other spacious, psychedlic drone artists. Sounding the Deep, hitherto a similarly deep droney solo project, expands into a decidedly earthbound trio of acoustic guitar, upright bass and drums, while contracting to focus on the small and nearby for Return to the Quiet. David Williams´ folk baroque thinks like Anglo-Celtic revivalists Bert Jansch and Martin Carthy, though he can also landscape flamenco-tinged Alhambras. Out of the Kansas City dust, a lucid dream of lush and leafy emerald fancy.
