The act known as 400 Lonely Things released, earlier this year, an 18-track, self-titled collection of solo pieces on the Bronson Unlimited label. Some of the tracks were discrete sound experiments involving guitar, percussion, reverb, or some combination thereof. Others were “proper” compositions that changed as they unfolded, however brief that unfolding proved to be. Three of the 18 are available for free download from the Bronson website (bronsonunlimited.com), on its 400 Lonely Things promotional page (here). “Nozone” wakes from cosseted silence to burblings of activity. “Staying,” the album’s opening track, starts with a lightly strummed electric guitar, adds a backing haze, and then seems to move deeper into the sonic woods. And “Catching Falling Stars” goes even deeper, eventually sounding like the audio track of a close encounter.
