Gate & Tom Carter I Split 7"
Gate & Tom Carter
For those who don't know, Gate is Michael Morley's (of The Dead C) solo project. His side is a mesmerizing track, consisting of distortion washed guitar over a slap-back drum machine rhythm track, with classic Morley slow-drawl vocals, ending with a super... super, low end rumble.
Tom Carter, of the Charalambides, contributes a guitar (?) layered masterpiece. I can only assume its guitar, but at times it sounds like synth/keyboard, or even bagpipes. Seemingly random patterns, all fall into place to create a beautiful, melodic, textural drone composition.
