Cleared – Cleared

Cleared – Cleared

After the weekend’s warm weather tease, it now appears we are right back in the dregs of winter. Accordingly, this debut LP from Cleared (duo of veterans Steven Hess and Michael Vallera) is just full of dark, glacial ambient well-reflected by the pitch-black sky and piles of snow on the record cover. Synthesizers, guitars, field recordings, percussion, and infinitely more sounds are layered and warped making these drones truly ominous and astounding. You might need a flashlight for this one.
