♫♪  Guardian Alien - “See the World Given to a One Love Entity (Part 1)”

Guardian Alien’s leader is Greg Fox, who has lent his percussive force to the likes of Teeth Mountain, Dan Deacon, and Liturgy. As diverse as those respective musical camps may be, there’s one common denominator: blast beats. Their Thrill Jockey debut, See the World Given to a One Love Entity, is described as a “forty-minute musical meditation,” in which pummeling percussion and ragga riffs transport the listener into a drone-y paradise. The sound is undeniably heavy, but some meandering Kraut tempos lend this almost ceremonial jam a strangely laidback feel — like Sunday Service at the church of Can.
