Following on from his
warmly received cdr
releases of 2007, ‘Obadiah’ is the second full length album
by Apalusa, aka Nottingham based musician Dan Layton.
Over the course of 50 minutes, these three long-form tracks focus on
darker territory than previous releases, with sub-bass rumbles and
minor-key chord progressions augmenting the multiple layers of
Apalusa’s trademark processed guitar drones and field recordings
to form an all-encompassing listening environment.
With Layton’s use of raw sounds and processing techniques now
forging an identity for himself which is very much his own, the end
result is the most focused and realised Apalusa release to date.
