🏴 David Walters has been running “The Echelon Effect” for more than ten years, making generous gifts for the audience. “Drift Ten” is a perfect one.
However, this album is not the tenth by The Echelon Effect. This number appeared to pay respects to the 10s, a decade that ended surprisingly fast. Yes, when something is over, we often feel sadness and longing. We reflect and come back to our vulnerable memories.
I’ve been listening to Drift Ten like to a requiem. You know some musicians touch this topic even being young and having a long track to go. Nevertheless, the album lets a variety of matters. “The Feedback of Summer”, for instance, has nothing to do with upset as it’s full of light and heat.
The end is not only a demise. It is a hope for something better. And, moreover, it’s a step to infinity, when the art reaches the hearts and obtains a new life. It’s not dead but alive in another sense. Interestingly enough, the field recordings were made on the ground somewhere in London, and in a small aeroplane. Altogether Davis’s work is seems a soundtrack for a flight to the better world.
