…and it’s not something embarrassing.
Minimalism, which is Mr. Riley’s ballpark, can be expressed through many musical languages. After getting a headful of Ms. Newsom, I went to the Pilot Light, a tiny bar, to hear Argentinum Astrum, a fantastic doom-metal band from Knoxville. Repeated riffs so fat, loud, slow and heavy that the individual notes are nearly disconnected: what’s more minimal than that? Nothing. Consider yourself informed.
