Music: The Van Meyers – “The Persistence Of Now”

2016 is off to a mighty fine start, thanks to the appearance of a new album by the Corvallis trio The Van Meyers. I’m fond of the entirety of The Persistence of Now, but have especial love for the title track. It’s just over 21 minutes long, and brings out the influence of William Basinski on these jazz players. The long drones and spacious washes of sound that lap over their sonic jetty go very well with the icy wasteland that is slowly dissipating right outside my window.
