One-song instrumentals are a fine way to spend 38 minutes on CD, as is the case with this third LP by High Watt Electrocutions. The work of one man with a plan, Ryan Electrocution smartly eschews rhythm percussion (when it's there, it hugs the background) in order to hone a treatise on the beauty of guitar texture. Oh, there are atmospheric tones of synth, church organ, and piano; otherwise, it's a soft, timeless space-floating cascade of shimmer-twilling, repetitive signatures that hypnotize as the piece lengthens like some amalgamation of Talk Talk and Philip Glass-inspiring Robert Fripp, Robin Guthrie, and Guy Chadwick. It's also a delicacy for fans of Scenic, Chameleons, the Moon Seven Times, Ennio Morricone, and Slowdive.
