Matt Borghi: Huronic Minor In 1913, horrific storms decimated the poor ships and shoreline folks of the Great Lakes area in North America. “Many lives were lost” could have been that era’s news headlines. Mother Nature went on a relentless rampage. The tragedy and its tales left an impression on Borghi, growing up near that same area, watching those same waters and winds decades later. As if echoes of the “day after” with one’s witnessing the devastation and void left in one’s soul following natural disasters – Borghi has crafted a superb collection of dark drones, bruised wanderings, and ravaged ruins, glimpses of a psyche’s attempts to deal with nightmarish realities.

So is this dark-lit ambience good? Yes, it is. Borghi has created a very well thought out work and performed it with pro execution. You gain a sense of emptiness and loss, “see” a wasteland of helplessness beyond horizons of shock. This is a soundtrack for the traumatized, the deep-sixed or should I say the deep-fathomed ones.

This is rainy-day fog shrouded doom-cast netherworld music. Fans of Roach, Robert Scott Thompson, 1980s Robert Rich “sleep tunes”, and all such “melting brain” music will enjoy this! Recommended release.
