CUM GUTTER – THE SHIP IN THE TAIL (Silent Method Records)

Finally back with reviews after a long hiatus, sorry about that! We’re back with an album from Cum Gutter. As far as I know this artist usually is more into harsh noise / harsh noise wall stuff but this time he delivers us a great piece of ambient music.

As the cover artwork tells us, it’s a concept album about aliens. There are some samples into it which makes me believe that there might be a storyline involved in the whole thing but I’m not totally sure. Guess I should ask the artist about that.

The atmosphere in this album is indeed totally outworldly and fits the extra-terrestrial concept perfectly in my opinion. It alternates between light pieces and darker parts. I think the intent here was to make some kind of narrative ambient. The tracks usually totally fit their titles.

All in all this album is really a trippy and interesting experience and I advice anyone into ambient and experimental stuff to check it out here.
