The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Aim Low.
"What started out as an afternoon of playing music and messing around with effects pedals to jokingly create "pretentious drone music", seemingly ended up having potential. With the mantra of "if this actually has the potential to be good, we should make it good", Montreal's Aim Low did just the opposite of their moniker.
Mining common threads from acts like My Bloody Valentine, Brian Eno, Nadja, Sunn0))), Southpacific, Jesu and the like, Aim Low attempts to create a fine balance between drone soundscapes, shoegaze, noise pop, and music that can be at times both ambiently beautiful, and sonically crushing."
A wonderfully crafted two-song slab of dreamy shoegazing drone. The monumentous buildup up is well worth the wait as the guitars buzz and screech as this huge wave of sound smacks you in the face. The noises that the band creates are chilling, as if you are setting out to sea on some intergalactic space ship. To hear what I am so desperately trying to explain, head over to the band's Bandcamp page to hear their EP. As the band states "music for paranoid insomniacs", indeed.
