Teething Veils

If you’re keeping score, this album is 19 songs shorter than the last disc from Greg Svitl’s odd musical vision Teething Veils. However, what he lacks in quantity he makes up for in quality. The two songs here, both 25 minutes each, are actually the same song, with the second song being the first song in reverse. “Constellations,” the forward song, builds dense atmospheres with intricate guitar work steered by Svitil’s baritone voice. “Dimmer” is where the tape reel is played backwards and remixed, and is a sadder, eerie affair that doesn’t resemble the song it mirrors all that much really. An unusual listen and ideal for ears that are tired of the mundane. (Tom Haugen)
