Jefre Cantu-Ledesma – Shining Skull Breath

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma – Shining Skill Breath

After releasing a total blockbuster last year with the critically lauded Love Is A Stream, the sunburnt drone god Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is back with a darker, more introspective release. And in the world of monolithic, claustrophobic distorted-guitar drone, darker almost always means better. Culled from a limited edition CD-R release dating back to 2007, Shining Skull Breath finds a young Cantu less interested in the buzzing shoegaze melodies he cranked out last year and focused intently on creating otherworldly, bubbling passages of total blown-out fuzz. The results are almost always awe-inspiring – nobody can make this kind of music like Cantu. Powerful, mind-bending stuff.
