Barn Owl – “Turiya”

For a band closely identified with drone, there’s something of a post-rock feel to Barn Owl‘s “Turiya,” off the band’s upcoming album, Lost in the Glare, out September 13th on Thrill Jockey. The difference is no doubt in part attributable to Jacob Felix Heule’s presence on drums. Heule is only one of a number of contributors on Lost in the Glare: Michael Elrod (The Alps, Date Palms) plays a Juno 60, manipulated cassette tapes, tanpura and gong on the album, and Steve Dye performs on bass clarinet.
