Nolon Ashley – ‘Okay Molg Apported Baby Farm’
bb‘Okay Molg Apported Baby Farm’ is an exploration of modular synth layers, tribal/industrial beat trails, minimalist tonal exercises, and haunting vocal drones. Nolon Ashley’s solo debut features five electronic compositions that undulate throughout. Consisting of long form, drawn out passages, ‘Apported Baby farm’ is wrapped in multiple layers of dark beauty while showcasing rich and textural atmospheres, piercingly harsh pinnacles, and nuanced, yet pulsing, clattering rhythms. Having developed his chops performing in acts like Soriah, Nequaquam Vacuum, Moe Staiano’s Moe!kestra, Power Circus, Submarine Fleet, and Julian Tulip’s Licorice, Nolon Ashley began performing as Cult of Zir in 2005, which has since undergone several transformations in intention and execution. Where the work of Cult of Zir could be seen as a vehicle for Nolon’s more ambitious and frustrating creative aspirations, The material found in “Okay Molg Apported Baby Farm” is perhaps more personal and honest, while retaining all the surreal vagary expected from his quarter.
