Nadja: Paradox-Live At Incubate 15.09.14

Here we have a live album by experimental/ambient/shoegaze/drone duo Nadja, comprised of Aidan Baker & Leah Buckareff. Recorded on September 15th at the Incubate Festival in Holland, the group mixed, mastered, manufactured, and released the album in a span of five days...pretty impressive. I just wish the music was something to get excited about. What we have here is 42-minutes of droning sounds (save for some cool, almost doom laden passages at the beginning), and it's not until about the 32-minute mark that we actually hear anything resembling a song, as the drums chime in and the whooshing noises emanating from Baker's guitar actually start to sound a little, like, well, a guitar. It's doesn't last for too long however, as static and more drone takes the piece out to its conclusion. As a slice of experimental or ambient rock, I can see the appeal that this will have for some folks, but after about 20 minutes I'm looking for something else to put on.
