Late Night Ukelele Drone

Canadian tonal exploration

Inlet’s “Late Night Ukelele Drone” is just the sort of shared work-in-progress that SoundCloud.com specializes in providing a platform for. It’s less a draft of a song than it is a rough sketch: a proposed element at most, not a self-contained riff let along a proper song. In total it is less than a minute of tonal exploration, but it’s also eminently loopable. And the fragility of the sound is in many ways suited to brevity. The drone bears little if any trace of its reputed originating instrument, and repeated listens will no doubt have the ear focusing on any possible vestiges.

Inlet hails from Yellowknife, Canada. Track originally posted for free download at soundcloud.com/inlet.
