Steve Dewhurst’s Best Cdr of 2011.
Seasons (Pre-Din) provided me with my first review and interview for Foxy Digitalis, all the way back in March. It’s true I have a soft spot for the mysterious artist’s work and I do find it incredibly sad that he chose to stop making music after this, one of his most powerful releases. The impression I got from him during the interview (which was done via email – I never found out his real name or saw a picture of his entire face) was that he’d completely exhausted himself through music and had reached a point from which he found it impossible to continue. Lesser and Still, full of hidden anger and frustration, was a suitably epic way to end a project that developed out of piano miniatures into radio static and through to flat-out noise terror.

Steve Dewhurst’s Subversive Top 10
2011 has been something of an annus mirabilis for drone and ambient music, so it’s sad that Seasons (Pre-Din) decided to call it a day with Lesser and Still. For my money, the mysterious Mr. (Pre-Din) has released some of the most engaging drone music in recent years, and he left us with one of his best. Consisting of five connected tracks that get heavier as they progress, the music on Lesser and Still is a far cry from the quaint piano tinkles he started out with in 2007, yet still provides a fascinating (if slightly unsettling) insight into a creative mind that reached an exhausted end.
