Egg Wizard Gorgeous drifting drone magnum opus, culminating in the ecstatic white out of Magnetic Striping. Almost a "sleep" album, more a "waking up" one? Singular loveliness in pale smeared textures. Favorite track: Magnetic Striping.

Odile A. O. Strik / Evening of Light From a while ago: Continental Drift by Faures (2014, Home Normal) is a gorgeous floating dronework. It definitely touches upon its theme with a suite of shifting and grinding tectonics. But the lighter side of the spectrum is equally rich, with subtle hisses, gentle melodies, and aural whiteouts. A delicate piece of art. Favorite track: Magnetic Striping.

Dotflac In this album, Faures takes us into the ever-changing earth's crust.

Noisy synthesizers and ethereal strings picture the emergence of submerged mountains in Asthenospheric Movement(s), soft synths and a light piano melody remind the heights of Himalaya in Orogenic Uplift, while distorted instruments collide like continental plates in Magnetic Striping.

A mind travel offering an interesting contrast between aerial compositions and underground suggested cataclysms.

Totally seducing. Favorite track: Asthenospheric Movement I.

"It let them float and drift, break apart and converge. Where they broke away, cracks, rifts, trenches remain; where they collided, ranges of folded mountains appear."
