Music: ladyshapes – end of glooming

This new 14-minute long jam by ladyshapes is a collective effort, but feels almost like a showcase for the work of Cassidy Kane within the band. The soft curving guitar lines w/ background drone are lovely enough on their own but it’s great to hear them being tickled from beneath by a stream of cassette-based samples. The only one I could recognize was a snippet of noise from R2-D2, but the rest are just as silly, squawking and burbling away throughout. Having those samples around yanks away any pretense or self-seriousness that you might fall into with music like this. No need to get analytical with this one; enjoy what’s lying right there on the surface.
