Revellever and Aux 78

Ash Street

Nicholas Matta records indescribable, elemental work under the name Aux.78. The Sun Decays Them is Matta's new work, recorded partly in his previous home of El Paso and partly in his current home of Portland. Some of it sounds like upside-down folk performed by a prankish group of inmates (Matta's responsible for all the overdubbed weirdness therein). Other tracks sound like they're not made by man at all, but rather an invasive variety of sonic plants and vines that have taken root and steadily, insidiously grown from sun and rain and dirt. While The Sun Decays Them is a decidedly unsettling listen, Aux.78's involving depth of field is worthy of praise. This is desert-mirage music, in which shadows stretch to unreasonable, ghastly lengths, and the most frightening things out there are actually in your head. NED LANNAMANN
