RIYL: Seefeel / Fennesz / Belong / Tangerine Dream

Label: Drone Rock Records

The Silence That Follows marks the 2nd¬†full-length¬†by¬†Stereocilia¬†released by UK’s Drone Rock Records,¬†and¬†it is truly a thing of beauty. The man¬†with the brush¬†is Bristol based guitarist and composer, John Scott,¬†which paints vast sonic landscapes for¬†us to¬†explore. Analogue synths creates the rich, open backdrop, while treated guitars brush your face like¬†warm waves of long lost memories. I believe the feelings these sounds arise are based on each individual listeners experience, but the general perception will definitely be on¬†a soothing, positive¬†level of energy. To my mind it brings¬†remeniscence of something¬†familiar¬†yet slightly out of grasp,¬†like warped super 8 clips of good times past.¬†Close your eyes and let the soothing sounds guide you.¬†Stereocilias’¬†canvas is¬†your universe, the painting is your soul.

The Details

The next release on Drone Rock Records sees the welcome return of Stereocilia, AKA Bristol based composer and drones/loops extraordinaire John Scott. His debut vinyl album, ‚ÄėHive Mind‚Äô, released on DRR back in October 2017, was a personal favourite and captured a core essence of the kind of music I sought out to represent when I started the label. ‚ÄėThe Silence That Follows‚Äô is a phenomenal and truly atmospheric follow up which explores new territories and themes but could still essentially be viewed as a companion piece to ‚ÄėHive Mind‚Äô. This is an album to be lost in as it transports you away in a droney bliss.

‚ÄėThe Silence That Follows‚Äô is a limited pressing of 300 copies available in two variants both featuring the gorgeous artwork by Sarah James:-

Special Edition:
150 copies pressed on purple vinyl with black and pink splatters.

Regular Edition:
150 copies pressed on purple vinyl.
