Luka Fisher – Mind Drone Business
With a woozy sensibility is the strange work of Luka Fisher’s “Mind Drone Business”. Bringing together pieces of ambient, rock, and drone together into a coherent whole the songs drift by leisurely. The collection itself is best taken in as a whole as each one of the songs plays off of the last. For opting for such an approach works wonders for the overall sound as it becomes a fully immersive experience. Exploration of mood and texture take priority over more traditional concerns like melody. However even with this relatively loose arrangement the songs linger in the mind long after they are over.
Things open up on a quiet note with the strange ambient work of “Mind”. Here the many layers come together in a myriad number of ways. Glowing gracefully they help set the mood for what follows. Anxiety reigns supreme over “Drone”. Within this singular track the way that it evolves heightens a sense of tension. Various elements of the sound interact to try and ineffectively cancel each other out, letting the way that the song evolves to be fully formed. By far the highlight of the collection is the collection closer, the brooding “Business”. Luka Fisher uses a great plethora of samples to tremendous effect as the song veers from sound to sound as if lost in a great fog. Gradually Luka Fisher cuts these sounds down to size until they evaporate into nothing.
Luka Fisher develops teeming seas of sound on the regal work of “Mind Drone Business”.
