Walter Furness Naal conjures up brooding emotion in this album reminiscent of Cliff Martinez's work on Drive. And yet, somehow, there is an optimistic seed that emerges from the ambient waves. I think this is a collection that will continue to unveil itself and shape-shift upon subsequent listenings. Favorite track: This Is Not Our Ordinary Life.

Shannon Penner A work of beauty that encompasses both depth and breadth. Expansive yet focused. A sadness that contains within it a sense of hope. Favorite track: Invisible Weapons.

about

THIS IS THE DELUXE VERSION OF THE ALBUMS WITH TWO ADDITIONAL TRACKS

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.
