Tim Hecker - The Piano Drop

Tim Hecker released his fantastic new album Ravedeath, 1972 last week. It was unfortunately, overshadowed by another certain album released last week (even though I’d probably say this was better than said album). Anyway, it’s Hecker’s similar experimental ambient drone but this time around it had a more accessible feel like Emeralds’ Does It Look Like I’m Here? from last year. Here’s the video for the opening track The Piano Drop which features some really cool footage of an old US college tradition of dropping pianos from roofs. The song itself is even better though, two minutes of mesmerizing ambient fuzzy drone. If you like this track then you should really get Ravedeath, 1972, I cannot recommend it enough.
