These Feathers Have Plumes – ‘Hegira’ 3”CDr
Edition of 65. Beautiful, haunting drone works by masterful avant-garde composer Andie Brown under her alias These Feathers Have Plumes. Former performer of underground goth-rock outfit Cindytalk, Brown has departed that world to focus on her minimalist compositions, employing numerous ideas and effects to reach her humbled zenith. These Feathers Have Plumes utilizes her standard form of upright bass and tape, but more recently her “glass pieces” have reflected her talent and ear for new forms and meditative techniques. Two reflective ambient works captured for reproduction, replicated for enlightenment.
