dbrdaking I've been on a kick of listening to albums that feature no overdubs, and this is one of my favorites. I'm a sucker for good ambient music anyway, so the fact that this one features no overdubs is more of an added bonus for me. Favorite track: [Untitled 3].


Heralding the return of rust-orange days and cool blue nights, Milieu's first new full-length at SSR since 2008 is an elegant and minimal affair. Comprised of three long tracks, all improvised and recorded live to tape with no overdubs, The Loneliness Of Empty Roads sees Brian at the guitar, unaccompanied, driving through the uninhabited backroads and highways of his subconscious. This is a blues album, reduced to single chords and clusters of notes. A live broadcast from an unmappable location to a humming car radio. Power lines and the occasional streetlight pass by, but nothing breaks the monochrome repetition of straight lines, static speeds and the hope of arriving at your destination soon. For those of you still finding your way home, here's one for the road. -Second Sun Recordings, 2010
