Loscil First Narrows
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Kranky
Vancouver's Scott Morgan is loscil-one of a handful of ambient/drone acts signed to Kranky. And, like labelmates PanAmerican and Stars of The Lid, Morgan's explorations into sound are extended journeys-he creates amniotic environments in which one can lose oneself for indeterminate lengths of time. A sense of submersion reigns, though Morgan occasionally breaks the surface with a half-remembered melody or a particularly poignant bit of musical phrasing. These moments are the reward for attentive listening, and are what keep one coming back to a disc like this over and over again.
