The Vliets — ‘Pale Solar Stream’

The other week the Dallas and Chicago-based Vliets released a four-track EP, their second in as many years. Made privy about a day ago, I’ve noticed I’ve become exceptionally smitten with “Pale Solar Stream.”

Its five and a half minutes is a steady stream of textured minimalism. Much of The Vliets’ work on God’s Drug seems this way.

I don’t know that “Pale Solar Stream” is excessively complicated so much as it is fancily blanketed in piles of sound. As layered as we get to brave the Chicago winter, I guess.
