Got this in my inbox the other day and found it to be pretty good. Kinda dark, eerie, dragging music. Thrill Jockey is releasing the new album called Ancestral Star on Nov 2.
Here is a sample "Light from the Mesa" Mp3
Here is what Thrill Jockey has to say:
"Barn Owl is the San Francisco duo of Evan Caminiti (guitars, vocals) and Jon Porras (guitars, vocals, drums, harmonium). They sculpt a vast collection of hazy desert sky meditations - ominous, barren expanses of music for desert walks at dusk, and dark, pastoral passages embellished with psychedelic and atmospheric wash. A mixture between devotional ragas and dusty stomp with atmosphere and production that references shoegaze and black metal influences. "Light From The Mesa" is only a peak at this dark epic."
