I’m not sure what Thomas Denver Johnson would have to do for me not to write about his music. Heavy black death metal I guess. He’s changed directions completely with his new duo project (w/ CJ Larsgarden) called A Perfect Friend.
They describe it aptly as “Ambient Folktronica” and while that may seem narrow there are bands working this field. I’m linking to the 13 minute opus “When The Temperature Is Rising”. Within the song time melts away as electonic bips and whirls are embedded on a lush background track. Thomas’ vocals occassionally float in and out of the mix. It’s warm and fuzzy. Analog and digital bleneded together in some odd new combination. They’ve finished this record and are looking for a home for it. Expect it sometime this summer?!
