Belong - Colorless Record EP (***1/2)



New Orleans dream weavers Belong, the duo behind one of my favorite ambient releases of the decade, 2006s October Language, return with a covers EP consisting of 4 interpretations of some rather obscure psych gems (the most notable being Syd Barrett's "Late Night"). Hidden beneath the layers of static and guitar waves is where you'll find the hint of vocals (a first for Belong), piped in from the originals, which come across more like ghostly transmissions than actual words. Here's 19 minutes of soul cleansing music. (Listen to the whole EP below while you still can)

Highlights: "Late Night", "Girl from New York"

RIYL: Fennsez, Tim Hecker, William Basinski, Stars of the Lid


"Late Night"
