The next release on Drone Rock Records sees the welcome return of Stereocilia, AKA Bristol based composer and drones/loops extraordinaire John Scott. His debut vinyl album, ‘Hive Mind’, released on DRR back in October 2017, was a personal favourite and captured a core essence of the kind of music I sought out to represent when I started the label. ‘The Silence That Follows’ is a phenomenal and truly atmospheric follow up which explores new territories and themes but could still essentially be viewed as a companion piece to ‘Hive Mind’. This is an album to be lost in as it transports you away in a droney bliss.
“…it brings remeniscence of something familiar yet slightly out of grasp, like warped super 8 clips of good times past. Close your eyes and let the soothing sounds guide you. Stereocilias’ canvas is your universe, the painting is your soul.”
“a dense, hybrid ambient mess of nothingness which pulls you into its void and encompasses your very being…. a true cathartic experience which turns into a beautiful cinematic sound-scape.”
