The first full-length Alex Cobb has released since Taiga Remains' well-received Wax Canopy (Digitalis, 2009). Sonically however, the two records could not be more dissimilar, with Passage to Morning recalling more the meditative guitar minimalism of Ribbons of Dust, his prior release for the Root Strata label. Here, glacially moving, eternally receding drones sourced from strings, tape loops and analog synthesizer are the order of the day, expertly arranged into succinct and imminently listenable compositions. Comparisons made of Cobb's previous recordings to Andrew Chalk and Christoph Heemann's work as Mirror prove particularly apt here, as Passage to Morning trades in the same sort of devotional, faraway sound design for which the pair have been justly praised. 'The Immediate Past' opens the record, with billowing, lulling tones hanging thick in the air like a struck bell frozen in time. Later, 'Bewildered By Its Blue' juxtaposes deep, brooding low-end tones with crackling tape noise and truly hypnotic cycles of analog synthesizer. That this is Cobb's first full-length under his own name is no coincidence, as here he offers us his most intimate recordings to date.''

We try to be as accurate as possible, but we use a service to get images for the vinyl records we sell. Sometimes, this leads to the image showing a special colored vinyl edition of a record when we only have the standard black vinyl version.
