LITANY FOR THE WHALE: Dolores: CD

If I said this CD was released by two Richmond labels and had cover art by Chris Taylor of Pg. 99, what kind of music would you guess was on it? Experimental, chaotic hardcore? Ding, ding, ding! You’re right! Seven tracks—some of found sounds and ambient instrumentals—with a definite debt to the Northern Virginia scene of the early 2000s (Majority Rule, City Of Caterpillar, the aforementioned Pg. 99). This is an engaging listen, but it’s not offering anything new.
