Alex Alexander exemplary ambient guitar music, patient and wrought with spiritual tension. a cohesive narrative unfolds across the album with a fluid slowness like a current felt subtly beneath the ripples. and even manages to use drums without reverting to conventional rhythmic structure! purely adrift.

about

THIS DIGITAL DELUXE ALBUM COMES WITH TWO ADDITIONAL SONGS

A703, the debut full length album from the Chicago drone/rock project, NAAL, is a slow, methodical album, focusing on darker themes- hopelessness, helplessness, pain, and death. However, it is possible that there is, in the end, hope. Perhaps the listener may be able to take a few moments to quiet their self, still their inner turmoil, breathe in, and, for a moment, truly believe that there may, after all, be a respite at the end of the journey.

If you cannot seem to quiet the noise, or find shelter from the storm, and you've all but given up... Know, at least, that you are not alone.
