Detroit's In Door Park debuted their experimental noise on this 2002 self-titled disc. With Nick Schillace on guitars and Jon Moshier on drums, the duo assembled an eight-song album of thoughtful, brooding instrumentals. Schillace, formerly of bands such as Slim and Skinmill, was a natural fit with Moshier, ex-Spy Radio. Their partnership resulted in a highly refined and delicate blend of sounds. The opening track, "Night Song," combines Schillace's guitar with the sound of a distant police siren. Moshier's subtle drum work first appears on the second track, "Drift," as Schillace adds a variety of contemplative tones. Electronic experiments are added to the third track, "Your Mind Relaxes," while the pace picks up on the rhythmic fourth track, "Bubble." The disc ends with "Patriot," a resonant and tender album-closer. The music is certainly avant-garde in its sound and approach. It excels at creating a steadily calm and reflective mood. The disc was released in the summer of 2002.
