The Glorious Hum - Main Page


Sometimes I begin to listen to a song I've never heard before and the first thing that overwhelms me isn't the music itself, but the seriousness with which it's been made. It doesn't happen to me very often.

Amasser is of this rare species of music, coming at you in the region of space between ambient electronica, slowcore, the quietest and most pensive of shoegaze. "For Omaha" begins with piano and an inhuman whistle, I can't even try to describe the beginning of "Moonwalker." Usually when technical descriptions fail me I turn elsewhere to try to capture the feeling of a particular piece of music, but words have lost their place as my most treasured tools for communicating sound at the moment. Which is really why you should just listen to the music.
"but where have you been? and what next?
reborn? re-adapted? wiped? reprogrammed?"
Amasser - For Omaha
Amasser - Moonwatcher
