Though Kyle Bates recorded Cold Air—his newest album under the Drowse moniker—at home, its 12 shoegazey tracks sound like they were born surrounded by monolithic glaciers in some remote arctic landscape. Beneath the lo-fi fog of Mount Eerie-style production, Bates recounts his experiences with dissociating from reality, breaking down, and finding relief in medication. It’s heavy, beautiful music.
