This album is all about super volcanoes and meteorite impact craters.
Recorded between 16th to 24th February 2013 using a Tascam 4 track cassette, guitar, pedals, noisy things and lots of 20 year old cassettes. All looped up and annihilated.
"In previous excursions, Hamlin extracted chaos from form, but here he comes full circle, imposing form upon chaos. While his sampled and added sounds remain abstract, his abstractions now form patterns." - Richard Allen, acloserlisten.com
"Yellowstone Caldera, is piercing if slow-paced feedback that gives way to bluesy guitar phrases and broken radio signals. It’s all blissfully zoned-out yet surreptitiously eager to peak in a manner that would test most speaker systems" - Marc Weidenbaum, disquiet.com
"1st track made me wanna throw this out of the window. 4th track is a great ambient piece" - Droning Earth, droningearth.wordpress.com
