Initially this was formatted exclusively to a run of 75 CDs, but thanks to the wonders of the digital realm, this Make Mine Music emission is now well and truly out there. The Doldrums is the recording alias of multi-instrumentalist Dylan Golden Aycock, a resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma. These productions are incredibly difficult to summarize in any concise fashion, but there's much fun to be had getting lost in them: the skronked-out percussion and found sound weirdness that characterises 'The Softer Side Of Velcro' is beautifully put together, while dropping in swells of slide guitar and synthetic warmth. There's more lap steel-style goodness to be found on 'I Don't Mean To Annoy You', which gets a bit of a shuffling at the hands of delay plugins_layering computer treatments and live instruments together with a finely crafted, very natural sounding approach. -Boomkat
