‘Headwound/What’s Real’ by Chasms

Like some kind of abridged soundtrack to Bergman’s Persona pared down to its abstract purity, this ten minute mood piece charts a psychic journey through dissolution and restructure, opening with a searing purge of the sonic palate, only to find itself wading through the aftermath’s fog of disarray. Taking cues from the likes of Mazzy Star, Happy New Year and Grouper, the San Francisco duo immerse themselves in a narcotic mixture of sensuality and obliqueness, mostly leaving meaning and catharsis to hover just out of reach while an ominous air of gloom takes hold.
