The thick wave is almost visible in the air, so slow is the pace at which it moves. This tonal mass is “Numazu” by Summons of Shining Ruins. It is the opening track off Shiho, the first of two albums with which the excellent netlabel Resting Bell will close out the year. The shimmering density of “Numazu,” and of Shiho in general, was produced entirely on digitally mediated electric guitar. It is all nanobot fireflies and glorious circular saws and tinsel made from razor blades.
