The US ambient-drone creator Tristan Welch released the LP Haunting New York City recently.
The roughly twenty six minutes, six track, album (available on bandcamp) is a release that is reflective of the death of a family member who had been a photographer taking shots around New York and is a contemplation of her spirit still Haunting New York City. Although ostensibly a eulogy it is, nonetheless, a soundtrack through which the listener will find some comfort as the extended, rolling loops melt in to each other.
The third piece – Untitled NYC 3 – gives a sense of the overall LP.

If you are in a hurry best to delay ensuing appointments, prior to hitting play, as Tristan Welch extends the ticking of the second hand.
Guitar is fed through loops and synthesised resulting in extended ambient textures that gently caress the walls until – disfigured distortion suddenly raises its head and the tracks descend into ravenous industrialisation that disintegrates the plaster.
Set in the key of A – Lights (A) perhaps prefaces of future material threading through chord structures, which to my ears would be a welcome addition to the catalogue and given than single tracks in the keys of C and D have already been released (available on bandcamp) not necessarily an improbable concept.
The middle of the two tracks – White Movement is the briefest, running at a shade under eight and three quarter minutes on the approaching half an hour, single.
