I really had no idea what to expect when I put this disc on, and was quickly blown (okay, washed) away. 5WM are Windy and Carl of, well, Windy And Carl fame, along with pal Greg, AKA Violet Glass Oracle. Starting points may be W&C's "Antarctica" Ep, "Occasional Light" by September Plateau, or maybe even an ADD-fueled Main. Carl Hultgren's trademark post-Reilly guitar sheets billow from end to end, both in fore and background, with electronic ice floes disrupting any sense of total tranquility. Fractured beats and rusty machines (the last breath of a 404, out-of-focus Moogs) occasionally bob to the surface, only to be washed over again by cascading waves of endlessly delayed feedback. "The Devils And Angels Are The Same" could have been an out-take from "Selected Ambient Works Vol.2"; both versions of "Sleeping To Technology" have a very aquatic feel to them, thanks to the depth charge bass and soothing repetitious flow. Close your eyes, and picture the sea anemones lazily floating by. Transcendental? More like otherworldly.
