The North Valley Subconscious Orchestra The Right Kind Of Nothing
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Ghostly International
Guitarists and laptop explorers Brad Laner (Medicine) and Christopher Willits (Flossin) have entered new, Kraut-friendly ambient territory. Less dreamy than Medicine and much less serene and glitchy than Willits' solo works, The Right Kind Of Nothing falls somewhere in the groove of a hazy Cocteau Twins record, but with a barrage of delay and fuzzed-out distortion. Panned samples acting as percussion and epic amounts of guitar loops help create a densely atmospheric record that truly stands out in an overpopulated genre.
