Another great EP from Red Lauan Tree. This one is more beat heavy than previous releases, with only one track that is actually an ambient piece. That doesn't mean that the album is devoid of ambiance. Quite the opposite, Climax Blues is a perfect combination of rhythm and space.
Favorite track: Relegated Sorrow.
Climax Blues is a slight departure from the mostly ambient experiments and sound collage works that Red Lauan Tree is known for. This record is a cycle of six songs with a more upbeat tempo than previous works, although the album still retains a strong atmospheric sensibility. All songs were recorded utilizing the same set of equipment in an attempt to create a more solid and cohesive sound.
