Baker, Aidan – Pretending To Be Fearless

Aidan Baker, from Toronto, Canada, combines warm drones with minimal post rock structures. The drone parts are really pulsing, deep and minimal and are very well done. They remind one of the works of Amon/Never Known or perhaps Moljebka Pulse.

The post rock parts are a bit too subtle for my tastes as nothing seems to happen really, the atmosphere in them is really nice however, and remind me of Stars of the Lid or Ultrasound. Overall a recommended release for people who like both genres.
