My ambient listening habits have gradually stretched into drone, so I've been looking into the modern scene more and more. This one, Brosound by Sundog Peacehouse, is one of my favorite albums of 2009, drone or otherwise. There's only two things wrong with the album. One, that it sounds like a mock hippie album, and second, that it was only released on cassette, a format I hate. The problem is that cassettes are the usual format in the drone scene, so I'll live with it, but anyone that gets pissed at low quality recordings should get over that. This one shouldn't be too bad though, I've heard much worse.
So yeah, the actual music. I think it's a great transition from ambient to drone, because there's no noisy tracks, just long tracks with gorgeous textures and slow moving melodies.
