Sean McCann - Phylum Sigh

DNT, 2009

McCann makes beautiful and tenderly woven multicolor psychedelic journeys in the vein of the best work of Axolotl, Astral Social Club, or even some Sunroof!. Only McCann has more of an emotional layering than those artists. This isn't just music of bliss or alchemical splendor, it's music of love and pain and bittersweetness too. McCann is certainly quite skilled in traditional playing of his instruments as well. I don't know why I held off on McCann for so long, this is one of the best releases of the year and he is one of the best new drone/psych-noise artists I've found.
