House of Stone

Recognized locally for his visual artwork, Morgan Sorne's debut LP complements the artists' apocalyptic aesthetic with a tribal, 13-track conceptual score that alternately unfolds in shivering awe and delicate textures. The density of TV on the Radio pulses in the layers, while also hearkening an indigenously informed Microphones and more trance-inducing Shearwater. Sometimes too ambitious and compressed in sound, Sorne's sonics are nonetheless compellingly entrancing. ***.5
