I can’t shake that Twin Peaks feeling when listening to the new LP ‘Glossy Recall’, by Washington trio Hungry Cloud Darkening. It’s no more in evidence than on the quite stunning lead track ‘Clearly Seen’ which, while sombre, has a beautiful atmospheric tone to it (hear it below).
Hungry Cloud Darkening is the collaborative all-analog recording project of Nicholas Wilbur, Allyson Foster, and Paul Benson. Each song is co-written in a slightly different way – all with priorities in variety and spectrum and fidelity. The three grew up in Mountain Home, Arkansas and Nixa, Missouri but have resided and operated in Anacortes, Washington for the past 6 years collectively. The project inhabits recording/event space the Anacortes Unknown, where Nich is the head engineer.
