Luke Chrisinger - Elluseves-Flight

Get this album from AMDISCS. You'll be glad you did. It's full of dirty fuzzed out guitars that morph into glassy windscapes like you might hear hissing past your ear in the scene above. Half of the tracks are catchy dirt-pop, and the other half are tone sculptures of the close-listening variety, their impact made through subtle shifts occurring over greater time. Both halves make me smile.
