Guitar Detonation (MP3)

Music about volcanos and asteroid impact craters

Peter Hamlin, aka the Holocene, is, by his own description, making music “all about super volcanoes and asteroid impact craters.” The track he’s posted thus far, “Yellowstone Caldera,” is piercing if slow-paced feedback that gives way to bluesy guitar phrases and broken radio signals. It’s all blissfully zoned-out yet surreptitiously eager to peak in a manner that would test most speaker systems.

Track originally posted for free download at soundcloud.com/peterhamlin. More from Hamlin, who is based in London, at parentcore.tumblr.com, tapehissnoise.tumblr.com theholocene.bandcamp.com.
