Alex Cobb — Marigold and Cable


The mystic revelation of a new album that is ALEX COBB’s MARIGOLD AND CABLE is all about losing yourself in a bliss of radiant drone. Listening to it is like lying prostrate, cradled by a boat carried on the currents of an ocean of light. The four pieces on Marigold and Cable evolve slowly and gradually, the auditory cousins of watching water droplets on a window change shape during a rain shower. They blend long-form glistening drones with minimalistic arrangements whose sparse and wordless invocations light upon the ear like a feather falling from the sky. Give it a whirl and feel the weight slip away from your mind’s Sisyphean shoulders.

This California-via-Ohio sound artist and founder of the label Students of Decay is a self-taught musical maverick. His music comes from a place beyond stability of form, free of deadlines, schedules, and plans, where the line between self and cosmos is uncertain. Marigold and Cable is available on succulent 180-gram vinyl from Shelter Press.
