Blast Furnace is Charlie Slenko & Francis McKeys making music at a distance -- from across state lines, sending tracks back and forth, building songs like laying bricks. But with a drum machine, field recordings, electricity, instruments, voices and samples.
"'blast furnace' has a more electronic feel than many sioux trails efforts, with a certain songs achieving an almost dub-like feel through repetitive rhythms and big echoes. dead pan/distorted talking type vocals are heavily featured over the distorted and warped soundscapes. i especially love the long-form psychedelic basement raga 'procession'."
