Both halves of Barn Owl have proven rather busy this year and Porras adds yet another release to the duo's expanding canon. Undercurrent, released under Porras' given name rather than the Elm moniker that he sometimes invokes, is a self proclaimed "love letter to the mist." The album is dark guitar drone that floats heavy in the ether. Slower and more deliberate than most of his work in Barn Owl, this release builds mountains of drone that move like the ghosts of tectonic plates; ethereal but with such crushing force it takes a minute to recover from the album's pull. Both Porras and Caminiti have proven that whether united or solo, they are both undisputed masters of their genre.
