The Droney Tones
The Droney Tones are a combination of acoustic guitar, hand drum, and sitar. Each song sounds, more or less, like the next. The sitar, along with the hand drum, creates a backdrop and the acoustic plays riffs on the top of the long songs, as they slowly evolve through various themes. Euphonia was recorded at a live performance last September. There are moments of creaking doors, crying babies, hushed voices and the whole recording carries the feel of the room it was created in, which sounds like a gymnasium. Sometimes, the echo of the instruments sounds like a roaring, whistling crowd. It’s a strange, beautiful album.
