Xam Duo - Xam Duo
Label Sonic Cathedral
Sonic Cathedral will release the self-titled debut album by XAM Duo – the new outfit formed by Matthew Benn of Hookworms and Christopher Duffin of Deadwall – on November 4. Its six tracks of improvised ambient beauty are both meditative and peaceful. It is astral jazz with an experimental kosmische undercurrent; modular synths meet saxophones; Cluster meets Terry Riley; Laurie Spiegel meets Pharoah Sanders; Ohr meets Impulse!. A warm, immersive and downright musical record, it rewards repeat listens.
