Yes, I know you don't know who this is, but take 2 minutes and read this! Doom Ribbons is a duo that features guitarist/composer Shane Perlowin from Ahleuchatistas, joined by drummer/percussionist James Owen. You would expect it to sound a lot like the Ahleuchatistas, but the sound is a lot less intense and a lot more psychedelic. There's some nice added instrumentation on violin, accordion, double bass, saxes and trumpet, and sonic surprises abound, such as the fourth track that sounds like Faust jamming with Urban Sax. Anyway, in my book this is a hard-core keeper; probably the best record I heard this month. High recommended!

"Doom Ribbons is a band from Asheville, North Carolina, featuring multi-intrumentalist/vocalist James Owen and guitarist Shane Perlowin (Ahleuchatistas). The Violence The Violence is Doom Ribbons' debut album. It is a beautiful and haunting opus and a lament for humanity's folly. An ambitious conceptual work over three years in the making, it moves from ambient soundscapes, to epic world beat, to acoustic psychedelia, to tension-building post rock, to noise, to nuanced sound-collage, and it features guest musicians Meghan Mulhearn on violin, Tyler Kittle on tenor sax, Simon Goldberg on trumpet, August Hoerr on accordion, and Joseph Burkett on upright bass."
