Aidan Baker & THIS QUIET ARMY - Orange LP
So “Amplifier” begins urgently, a massive engine sound crowding out the slasher-film carryover from the previous track: two of the more electrifying features of the album. It closes with a brief space odyssey, promising only further permutations at other stops along the way. “Milk” finishes the album with two minutes of random buzzing along the chromatic scale, applying a galactic tautness to what is already an angst-fueled release. In the final few minutes the production tapers gently to silence, and you know you have been somewhere: a cavern of sound, ill-lit at times, with some inner chambers, each poorly divided from the other.
