Belief Is The Death Of Intelligence
Album: Base Fluid Single
Origin: Canada (Toronto)
Genre: Drone, Shoegaze, Doom
I'm in the middle of my exams so here's a freebie. Enjoy!
"More Nadja, this time its free too, which can only be a good thing although the trouble with free stuff is that it can on occasion guarantee crapness in the musical department. Luckily, the two tracks here are not in that department and showcase more of the ambient doom drone we have come to expect from Aidan and Leah. With this release one track is new, one is old, yet both melt into each other perfectly. Opener Base Fluid is the newest of the two tracks and is slightly more ambient than anything else they have done recalling Aidan Bakers solo work at parts. Its got a killer opening and towards the end the tightness of the duo becomes very clear. The second track Numb is more of a chillout piece, at least for the first half anyway. At times almost reminiscent of Jesu at times, certainly much more in the ambient department than doom, with synths taking presence over full on heaviness, that's not to say this isn't loud and heavy, its just not depending on the trick of deafening people. Again, you can't really go wrong with Nadja, and these two tracks are totally free so you may as well have a listen, cant be that bad right?" (Nothingatall.net)
