Minus Pilot’s first full length, Superior Proof of Cinema, consists of blissful ambient soundscapes littered with guitar sounds that clang effortlessly in the fore. The record’s crackly production complements the ethereal world that the artwork so wonderfully depicts. The album’s opener, ‘Twin Screens Fail’, throbs until the guitars become submerged in a blanket of warm, hypnotic drones. The record ends in a similar fashion, with the guitars wavering gently until they become wholly enmeshed in the ambient fuzz. Although not quite as poignant as William Basinski or as entrancing as Tim Hecker, Minus Pilots have proved their ability to captivate. Definitely one to watch.
