Collections of Colonies of Bees – Six Guitars

Collections of Colonies of Bees

Collections of Colonies of Bees are an experimental five piece out of of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, featuring two of the members from Pele.
I first heard of these guys when browsing the Polyvinyl forums a couple of months back, probably because I thought the name was good if i’m honest. Upon downloading though, I remember being stunned at the pure beauty of this record.
Six Guitars is an instrumental 12 minute track of interweaving guitars, pianos and strings layered over and over to create an incredibly dense blanket of lush sound, constantly changing and evolving yet never departing from its original premise. I’d compare it almost to the likes of Steve Reich in a way if that’s any help.
If I ever have trouble sleeping or just generally need to chill out then this always does the trick.

I’ve just learned that these guys are set to release a record with Bon Iver, so they maybe they’ll be in line for a bit more recognition.

Thanks for checking out Acid Math!

This blog will hopefully act as a conduit for me to pass on stuff I think is awesome, to you, the music appreciator. There will be new stuff, old stuff, well known stuff and unknown stuff, everything will be good though, you can be sure of that.

Clicking on a picture will take you to a link where you can download said album for sampling purposes

Don't be selfish, consider all these links as means of sampling the artist only. If you like something then go and buy it. Equally as important, support your local music scene, no matter how small. Go and see shows.

I'm always up for linking with other blogs, so get in touch if you want to as well. Any queries? Leave a comment somewhere and i'll get back to you. Enjoy!
