I discovered Golden Pawn through the wonderful ambient label, Scissor Tail Editions. Dylan Aycock (founder of scissortail), Andrew Bones, and Mark Kuykendall join together to create a world unto itself – one that I wouldn’t want to live in, but that I would willingly enter for forty-two minutes and emerge a new man. The textures weave together into an ambient braid – the dissonance lingering on in order to make the release more rewarding. This is an album worth lying down for.
Shout-out to my roommate, Gabe, for turning me onto the label.
