The Olympia, Washington, duo Growing plays a disarmingly lovely style of noise/drone music. The band's name is apt, as guitars, synthesizers, and various electronics seemingly rise up to create a sonic glacier that is stunning to hear. Of course, the band is also capable of crushing waves of sound, though rather than work against the more tranquil moments, the heavy is perfectly of a piece with the rest of the band's noise. VISION SWIM is Growing's second album for Troubleman Unlimited and finds the duo honing their craft to a fine point.
