Compound Eye is Drew McDowall (formerly of Coil) and Tres Warren (Psychic Ills and Messages).
'Journey From Anywhere' is their second long-player release following 'Origin of Silence', an art edition LP on The Spring Press label. This double lp features 4 sides of improvised electronics that lead the listener into the dark recesses of the duo's subterranean explorations. Each of these works move at a slow and considered pace, gradually unfolding into a transportive blur of dark psychedelic minimalism.
Like elements of Coil long form works this is a music which has the potential to melt time, open space and create a flowing web of liquid memory.
A sublime record for those who like music that encourages travel.
