THE GHOST OF 29 MEGACYCLES - LOVE VIA PAPER PLANES (CD by Sound & Fury Records)
So far I counted two and half releases by The Ghost Of 29 Megacycles, a three piece from a land downunder. Karen De San Miguel, Matthew Aitken and Gregory Taw. The latter started the band, but now is a real band. They are a guitar band primarily. A shoegazing guitar band, with a strong influence of Windy & Carl and Stars Of The Lid. Long sustaining sounds are produced the guitars - maybe with the addition of other instruments, but I can not be sure of that. Spacious music, played with the use of looping devices, lots of chorus and reverb - perhaps the latter is over-used here. The guitars no longer tinkle away, like they did on their previous two releases, but sustain on end, with every now and then some wordless singing added to it, the Windy & Carl influence I'd say. 'Dusted', a short piece towards the end uses organ like sounds and no guitars. The final track, the also short 'True Love Will Find You In The End' is the only one in which the singing has words and seems to be breaking away from the first four tracks. Ambient music for space heads (wether or not inhaling substances).
