Rusted Lung RAMBLE
Doom Americana from Kentucky
Uncut Magazine review - Piers Martin
It's not only cleanly reverberating guitars that roam the spacious wilds and deserted highways of ambient Americana. Blake Conley. presently of Louisville, Kentucky, has been out here a while in different formations, and the music on this solo electric guitar record sounds toughened by the experience.
On the 10-minute opener "Blood Goes Warm", his guitar growls amid thorny tremolo, Sunn 0)) on horseback, while on "The Distance From Myself", the troubling atmosphere makes time appear to run backwards. The epic "Rustic Lung" occasionally lightens the glowering mood, butit ultimately makes it sound as if Conley isn't so much riding off intothe sunset as being condemned to stalk the earth.
